100 Rounds of Sparring

A Liverpool martial arts group has taken on a mammoth sporting challenge to support the Charity’s life-saving research work.

the North West Spirit Taekwondo group

North West Spirit Taekwondo, a family-friendly martial arts club based in Garston, challenged their members to a gruelling 100 rounds of Taekwondo sparring to test their endurance and willpower.

Olly (9), Owen (13) and Callum (18) slogged it out in the heat and bested the challenge, raising £1,000 for North West Cancer Research.

Stef Davies, Club Owner, said: “The 100 Rounds of Sparring event is something we look forward to each year. It’s super challenging and always lands on a hot day, which makes it even more sweaty! It’s great to come together and work hard to raise funds for an excellent cause. However much we might struggle on the day, there’s always someone going through something much worse, which is why we do it.”
