Dan is a knockout for charity

Year 10 pupil, Dan Davis raised over £600 for charity last month, in a charity boxing match at The Chateau Impney .

Dan started attending Redditch MMA/10th Planet last year and was placed in the adult class, being 13 at the time. He currently trains for 10 hours a week, working between the boxing and MMA (mixed martial arts – Thai boxing, Jiu Jitsu and wrestling), circuit training he also helps run the Junior classes.

The charity event was for the Charlotte and Craig Saving Hearts Foundation. Dan has raised to date £386 plus £330 from the tickets he sold.
He won his MMA match against a 17 year old. Dan told us:

The sportsmanship in this sport is second to none. Everyone supports each other, winners or losers together it really doesn’t matter. I was proud to support the charity and represent my club. I have followed the sport for a while now and it is a sport I really enjoy, James Whiston, my trainer and club owner is excellent at what he does and I would highly recommend him. The first session is free to all ages so people can try out the sport first.

The next big charity event is in April and Dan is hoping to raise more than the £5900 raised at this event.
Congratulations Dan!
