Charity Event

Firstly many thanks for an enjoyable National Grappling event yesterday. Suffice to say we all had fun and look forward to the next competition.


I am running an event myself in St Neots, Cambs, and I wanted to invite every IMASA club. It is not a competition per se but rather a gathering of like minded martial artists. The event is to be held for charity and I am asking a £10 donation from each person accordingly.


It will be held on Sunday 20th November at St Neots Town Football Club.

It will last from 11am to 5pm

The event is called the 2016 UK Bullshido Throwdown.

Like minded martial artists can gather and spar with anyone they choose under mutually agreed rules for a duration of their choosing.
