Updates August 2014

The GrappleThon concept continues to grow as 2014 begins to wind down. Since the last event report back in March, the Artemis BJJ GrappleThon supporting Kinergy raised £5,000 in Bristol. There has also been the third iteration of Performance Martial Art's Grapple-A-Thon in Springfield, OR, a 4DA Kids GrappleThon at Centurion BJJ in Panama City, FL.

There were also two GrappleThons on the same 16th August weekend: first, the NW High Intensity Training Center event in Olympia, WA, shortly followed by Jodie Bear's GrappleThon in Congleton supporting the Donna Louise Children's Hospice Trust. Jodie and her team have raised an incredible £6,000 so far!

There's more Grapplethon action to come this month, with Pura Vida Fighting For Kids on the 31st at Open Mat Fight & Fitness in San Diego, CA. Next month sees a stalwart returning for their second event, with another GrappleThon supporting NVRDC at BETA Academy in Washginton, DC on the 13th of September. On the same day, there will also be a Grapplethon supporting Liam Stark, over at Optimus BJJ in Laguna Niguel, CA (who have also hosted Grapplethons in the past). Finally, Gravity BJJ are into their third Movember Rollathon on the 22nd November up in Surrey, BC.

Good luck to all of you: hopefully I'll be able to add even more GrappleThons to the event page soon! :D
