24-Hours Rolling - A Guinness World Record?

September 6, 2012

GJJ Cape Town hosts the first ever 24-hour Roll-a-thon!

This Saturday, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Cape Town will be hosting the first-ever 24-hour Roll-a-thon. The academy will be open from 10am on Saturday, September 8th, to 10am on Sunday, September 9th. During this time, students of GJJ Cape Town and grappling clubs across South Africa will be able to get sponsored to come and grapple (roll) for as long as they can during this 24-hour period. All proceeds will go to Cancer Research and help fund treatment for Juan Poerstamper, a Gracie Jiu-jitsu Cape Town student who has been diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma and is currently undergoing treatment.

During this Roll-a-thon, James Smart, head instructor of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Cape Town, will attempt to roll for the entire 24 hours - setting a world record (to be confirmed by the Guinness Book of Records).
