Sponsored sparring raises money for charity

6 July 2013



Chris Jones Martial Arts in Knaresborough raised money for a number charites and the club during a recent sponsored spar.

The event consisted of around 50 fights (they lost count on the day!) lasting 2-minutes each, they were back to back with around a 15-20 seconds cross over.

Students raised sponsorship for the main instructor, Chris Jones, with a minimum entry fee of £5 to encourage as many people to take part as possible.

Chris said:

A small amount will go towards some new training pads for our juniors class. The remainder of at  least %90 will be donated to The British Heart Foundation, Save The Children and JC Dragons Heart Europe (Jackie Chan’s Childrens Charity)
