Support

Josh Plant & Callum Abell. GB Judo Squad Member. MMA European Champion. Televised International Exposure.

Goal

Impact Martial Arts has very successfully trained thousands of members over the years and some have represented Impact at high profile and televised events. These include Josh Plant – an Impact Judo Coach who won a place on the England Judo Squad and is a former member of England’s Talent Development Squad. Josh is also a reining Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) European Champion. Another current member, Callum Abell (Kickboxer) has represented Impact at MA Action on Sky TV and is well known as an upcoming star of Martial Arts.

It’s important that Impacts membership fee structure strongly promotes affordability for everyone. Impacts strong links with the local community already provide free martial arts sessions, fitness and self-defence classes to local school children including Judo, Kickboxing and Self-Defence. We therefore keep membership fees as low as possible and rely on local business sponsors for financial support. We are currently seeking financial support for Josh & Callum to fund equipment and travel as they attend shows and competitions across the UK and for development of our younger members.

Background

Impact is a popular club for men, women and children of all ages and abilities who want to learn martial arts, fitness and self-defence in a supportive environment focused on self-development. Impacts qualified coaches provide children with fun, safe, friendly classes in which they can build confidence, pride, self-respect, self-defence skills, discipline fitness and friendships.

Current Position

Josh and Callum have the talent and the drive to succeed but lack the funding they need to focus on fulfilling their true full potential. Josh has already progressed to the position of current European MMA Champion; we also now hope to similarly develop more of our young local talent and would be very grateful for anything you can do to help. All donations whether financial, equipment or alternative assistance would be gratefully received. Our target is to achieve £2000 before the campaign ends.

The Future

Josh and Callum have been training since 5 years old. They are both fully committed fighters with a strong supporting coaching team. In 2015, Josh and Callum secured a sponsorship deal with Trec Nutrition. Trec is an international sports and fitness supplements company with a current 157,127 supporters on Facebook across 26 countries worldwide. Josh and Callum are regularly mentioned on the Facebook page as sponsored fighters and are provided with TrecWear and supplements a part of the sponsorship deal.

Josh and Callum regularly compete in shows across the UK including Fight UK and Battle Arena UK. Battle Arena works in partnership with MMA TV – fights are streamed worldwide meaning international exposure for fighters. With opportunities like this arising, a strong coaching team, talent and skill, all Josh and Callum require is the funding to push them the to the next level.

Achievements

Josh and Callum have both achieved significant success throughout their Martial Arts careers including winning European Title Belts, Representing Team Great Britain, awarded 2nd Dan Black Belts and competing across the UK at well known televised events. Impacts achievements are well recognised and respected within Martial Arts. Josh, Callum & Head Coach Kris Charlesworth have all recently been nominated for national awards (winners to be announced 26th March, 2016). These are 3 of many awards Josh, Callum and our coaching team have been nominated for from a select few from throughout the UK.

  • Josh – ‘Fighter of the Year’ (3 UK nominees in total).
  • Callum – ‘Young Fighter of the Year’ (5 UK nominees in total).
  • Impact Head Coach, Kris Charlesworth – ‘Coach of the Year’ (6 UK nominees in total)

Closing Message

We have a very strong link with the local community already provide free martial arts sessions, fitness and self-defence classes to local school children including Judo, Kickboxing and Self-Defence. With financial support, Josh & Callum can continue to provide martial arts and self defence classes to the local community and will be able to fund equipment and travel as they attend shows and competitions across the UK.  All donations whether financial, equipment or alternative assistance would be gratefully received.
