Last Saturday 22 June 2013 PACT was running their traditional Summer Event and CARISMA helped entertaining some of their guests with a demonstration of kickboxing, multicombat and self defence. The weather was not helping a great deal and it rained, even if just a few minutes. The grass was slippery and uneven so we practiced with shoes but it went very well. Big thank you to Natasha, Simone, Tim and Jarek that offered their time and expertise for this demo. We also have a video of the event that will be published soon.

We have finally decided to cancel the second day of the BIG WEEK END and our Kickathon; the weather, once more, played against us and the organisers. Here is a short report about what happened yesterday.
Everything started very sunny indeed and I had an initial regret for not bringing a gazebo and sun screen. By 11am I was considering that a gazebo would have been good but against the rain. Luckily the College of West Anglia allowed us to use part of their shelter.
We managed to successufully run our demonstration at 2:30pm: we under the rain for the whole time so with a total of about 4-5 spectators 🙁
Big thanks to Daisy, Anna, Simone, Dom, Alex, Jarek, Theo, Heley, Sanyia and Penka who joined and helped for the day. Please come and see us today and help us to raise more funds: so far we raised £188.50 so we feel confident we can break the expected barrier of £200.00 we previously anticipated.
The amount of kicks performed on the day was just 150 due to weather conditions so, at the current balance, further 1735 are due and will be completed during classes.
I had a chat with the organisers from Cambridge City Council and suggested that a large roofed area would have helped to keep all sport clubs under shelter and helping them to connect with passers by, promoting our activities. However, as it is raining, very few people are on the park and very little can be done about that.
Join us today and tomorrow, together with many other sports clubs from Cambridge to celebrate sports and promote our club. This ia a 2 days initiative organised by Cambridge City Council where we will have a small stand to make demonstrations and allow people from the general public to experience what training with CARISMA is about.
Come and support us during the two featured demonstrations on stage at 2:30pm Todayy 7 July and 2pm on Sunday 8.
We are collecting funds of behalf of EACH so please come along and donate some money: one of our athletes will perform 10 kicks for each £1 donated. Do far we raised (to the best of my knowledge) £106 so 1060 kicks are already in the pipeline.
I would like to remind to everyone that Kickathon is happening this Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 July; if you would like to raise money for EACH please get a form from Massimo at the classes. Alternatively you could ask people to donate on line. We set up a CARISMA page on Just Giving and the money will go directly to EACH. In short for every £1 you collect you have to do 10 kicks against a pad… it is going to be fun!
