    Slideyfoot's 24 hr. GrappleThon for Rape Crisis

    In an extremely positive reaction to the recent shameful events in the BJJ community, Slideyfoot, our resident jiu-jitsu ambassador in England, is hosting a 24 hour charity event called GrappleThon to raise money for the charity organization Rape Crisis.

    He and others will grapple for a full day to help raise donations for this worthy cause. The event will be streamed live on the internet while it happens.

    I believe that it is vitally important to support events like this in order to send a clear message that the grappling community not only condemns the horrible crime of rape that Matthew Maldonado and Nicholas Schultz have been indicted for, but that we make it extremely clear that we fully endorse both rape prevention and rape education.

    Everyone in the grappling world needs to work together on this. In addition to raising awareness and becoming more educated about any type of sexual assault, we need to police our own ranks to ensure that this never happens again.

    Please see the link below to find out how you can help.

    A cool idea and a great cause. When it comes to these matters, specifically addressing the incident regarding the Team LI scandal, actions speak louder than words.

    Edit: Also to add, my Team LI boycott has come back to bite me finally, as Danny Ives, ridiculously talented grappler and all around cool guy, is doing a free seminar tomorrow at my gym.

    I've boycotted them too. Also, Meerkatsu's latest shirt's profits are going to RAINN.

    He's raised an impressive $10,000 so far for RAINN and Rape Crisis through that shirt. Awesome work by Seymour.

    Oh, and he did a cool poster for the GrappleThon too. :)
