Following on from last year's very successful martial arts event, we're pleased to announce that the second event will take place on Saturday, 15 June, from 9:00am. The event is being hosted by Cheltenham Martial Arts Academy on Albion Street in Cheltenham.
Sifu Matt Chapplow, a Wing Chun instructor from Stroud, approached CMAA asking for their help laster year, so we were very excited to be considered as one of the supported charities. Instructors traveled from far & wide to be there
Last year's event was superb, so we want this year's to be bigger and better. Everyone is welcome to come along and try something new. It doesn't matter if you've never done any martial arts before, or if you're a fifth-dan in karate - there'll be something for you to try.

As well as The 100 Project, CLIC Sargent will also benefit as Sifu Chapplow's nominated charity.
This year I wanted to support a charity which helps children who are going through cancer. It's an awful thing to have to deal with when you're older, so it must be a million times worse when you're young.

Hannah Worrall, Fundraising Manager at CLIC Sargent said, "This is a great opportunity to do something good for charity whilst trying something new for yourself or your family. This promises to be a brilliant day and I for one cannot wait!"
As a kickboxer and a Maarlisk instructor I was interested in seeing some of the other martial arts in action. I was fortunate enough to be able to take part in a couple of sessions where I was a beginner. This year's event is already shaping-up to be an exciting event, so I'm looking forward to taking part in martial arts that I haven't tried before.
