15th April 2017 we're set to embark on our next annual Bristol Grapplethon where we roll over a 24 hour period and raise funds for charity. It's a great event and so much fun meeting fellow jiujitsu enthusiasts from clubs all over the UK. This year we're raising funds for sarsas a charity dedicated to assisting and supporting survivors of rape and sexual abuse. Fund raisers who raise a certain amount will become eligible for this limited edition t-shirt designed by me.
Read more about how to join the fundraising team and how to pop in for a friendly roll here at the Artemis website.
Come join us for a roll or twenty!
