MAP Charity Seminar June 13th 2015

Message from John Titchen:

MAP Charity Seminar June 13th 2015

Where is it?

High Wycome Judo Centre


The venue has matted training areas large enough for 2 or 3 sessions at the same time, changing rooms and showers, on site parking and a social bar area overlooking the main Dojo.

What time is it?

Arrive by 10.00 to sign in and do your personal warm up.

Who is teaching and what arts can I try?

10.30 – 12.00 Session 1. Paralympic Silver Medallist  Ian Rose (Judo), Aaron Cronk (MMA) & Andrew Janson (FMA knife fundamentals)

12.15 - 13.45 Session 2. Ian Rose (Judo) WRSA Light Heavyweight English Kickboxing Champion Lei Bridges (K1 Kickboxing & Muay Thai) & John Titchen (Karate Kata Application)

14.30 - 15.50 Session 3. Alan Murphy 6th Dan (Mushin Bushikan Ju Jitsu) & Billy Holku (wrestling basics)

16.00 - 17.00 Session 4. Simon Sheridan (Boxing footwork, slipping and body shots) & Lei Bridges (K1 Kickboxing & Muay Thai)

Getting there

The location is just off one of two M40 junctions for the town and close to the M4 and M25 routes.


Buses or taxis

You can get a taxi or blag a lift from the central bus station. The Booker/Lane End one (032A) is most likely to be the best choice.


You either want the Turnpike Corner West stop or the Lansdell Avenue Stop. The Judo Centre is in Barry Close, High Wycombe, HP12 4UE


The station (with trains roughly every 20 mins) is on the Birmingham to Marylebone line, so you can get intercity to one of those locations (or Banbury) and then switch.



How do I pay?

Via the just giving page. 


What charity are we supporting?

MAP has supported some very worthy charities over the years and the 2015 Meet will be in aid of the Childhood Eye Cancer Trust

This is the charity that helped Ian Rose when he was a child, so with his continued support of the MAP Meet we thought it a nice partnership.

Can I bring a friend/partner/another member of my club?

Yes. As long as they pay through the Just Giving page. Minimum age is 16.

Will it be fun?

Oh yes, very much so.

Size, shape, sex, fitness and flexibility aren't a requirement. Come and meet the people you talk to online and see them in a different light.

We look forward to seeing you there.

A follow through to this.

Thanks to all that came. We raised over £1000 for the Childhood Eye Cancer Trust.  We are already in the initial planning stages for next year's event and intend to give you all plenty of calendar busting advance notice.
