A Buckinghamshire-based martial arts expert is appealing for volunteers to take part in a gruelling world record bid that will also hope to raise thousands of pounds for a local charity. Ebe Ghansha is hoping to lead the longest continuous Brazilian Ju-jitsu/ Mixed Martial Arts class and he needs to recruit would-be record breakers as well as people from the local community willing to act as witnesses. The record attempt will start on Sunday, May 8 at his new studio at the prestigious Interchange Business Centre in Newport Pagnell where the owners of the site, Bucks-Biz have already pledged their support. Ebe, a former British Olympic Team member, explained that he wanted to attempt the record to raise money for the Keech Hospice, a charity that helps provide end of life care for children in the Milton Keynes area. “I also thought it was a good way to celebrate moving my M1J14 Academy into the new studio at Interchange Business Centre,” he said. “The existing record stands at just over 29 hours and a number of my students have already volunteered to go the full distance, but anyone is welcome to join in, either to go all the way or just to lend their support. “At the same time they can raise sponsorship for taking part and help boost our donation to a very worthy cause. “We also need members of the community to come forward and act as witnesses. They do not have to stay for the whole event; just agree to watch for a pre-arranged four hour period to ensure the bid is accepted by the Guinness Book of Records.” In addition to sponsoring the record breaking attempt Buck-Biz will also be providing refreshments during the record event whilst opening up Interchange Business Centre for a family fun day. Anyone who would like to support Ebe and the charity should telephone 07743 720034 or email academyinfo247@aol.com.
