Record Break 2010
14th March 2010

Record break!


On Tuesday 27th April I am going to be setting a record for the most pieces of wood broken in 60 seconds... and it's all for charity.


I'm going to attempt to set a record, the first as far as i know to see how many standard 1 inch boards i can break using years of TaeKwon do experience. I'm trying to get as many sponsors as possible to raise money for the Merlin Project in Cornwall.


The centre near St. Austell was completed late last year and it is a unique development to help and support those with Multiple Sclerosis. Cornwall has the highest percentage of MS sufferers in mainland Britain, the facilities and services they provide are second to none and priceless to many. Unfortunitely places like the Merlin Project rely on constant funding, thus the reason for this fundraising event.


I was diagnosed with MS early in 2009, but i'm lucky to say that it doesn't have a huge impact on my life and i can still carry on with training and teaching.


Please support this event, such a great cause deserves the support from those that can.
