Beat The Crap Out Of Cancer
Okay, so we all know that cancer is bad. Likewise, we all know that full-contact stickfighting is good.
Putting these two polar opposites creates ... what? Well, I'm going to tell you. It creates Beat The Crap Out Of Cancer, an annual cancer research fundraiser.
This year's event (the third) happens this Saturday (also the third) in five different cities. If you can donate, go here.
I'll be there, along with some of my stalwart students, and I'd be more than happy to cross sticks with any Bullies that show up - I'll be the grey-haired guy with the badger on his fencing mask.
Nice, the site says there's a Honolulu event but no link or details.
Is there actually one here? I can't find anything off hand.
Not sure, but I'd recommend asking at the BTCOOC facebook page

would love to get involved (My father was diagnosed with stage 4 stomach cancer 2 months ago) but my wifes brother died yesterday from a sudden stroke (yep, been a crap couple of months all told) so I am trying to get us to the Philippines for his funeral,
I will donate and thanks in advance to everyone who attends and/or donates
Thanks for the share, post stuff like this earlier and I'd be glad to help spam it.

Had a good LA event on Saturday, if a bit small. It was in the back of an amazing martial arts supply store that had a huge selection. Semi-outdoor on blue mats. Got to fight with bowie, stick and buckler, 2 handed sword and single stick. Got to play with Pappy Dog and Poi Dog. Good action, no injuries.
Hopefully the UK event will make a return next year.
