GTI Charity 100 Rounds of Sparring 2024

On 12th May, some of our students will be taking part in the GTI ‘100 Rounds of Sparring’ charity event in Cheltenham in order to fundraise for the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity, which supports families who have a child with a life-threatening or terminal illness.

All students are welcome to take part in this friendly and fun event. Support a good cause and get some valuable training in at the same time!

Challenge yourself to complete 100 x 1 minute rounds of sparring (or sign up to complete 25, 50 or 75 rounds of sparring instead). You can also opt to complete 25, 50, 75 or 100 minutes of patterns if sparring isn’t your thing. It’s all about challenging yourself for a good cause. Fancy dress is optional (but encouraged)!

Note: if you do not wish to raise sponsorship but would still like to attend, then a £10 fee will be charged which will go to the GTI’s chosen charity.
