Have you heard about easyfundraising?
Here at Safari MMA we know that for some, times are tough financially right now, however we don’t want this to stop anyone from being able to train, which is why we have set up Safari Sport Support. We care about the lives we are changing and we would like to invite you to help us make a difference too. Before you know it, you will be changing lives by just doing your everyday shopping at some for your favourite retailers! It costs you nothing, but the impact this could have on someone will be life changing.

Its free and simple to join easyfundraising!

Click here and it will take you straight to Safari Sport Support homepage.
Every time you shop online, go to the easyfundraising app or website first, pick the retailer you want and start shopping
After you’ve checked out, that retailer will make a donation to us for no extra cost whatsoever!

 

These are the easiest ways for you to raise a donation.

Shopping on your mobile? No problem, for mobile phones and tablets there is the handy easyfundraising App, perfect if you like to shop on the go and available completely free of charge from your App store. Now you can not only shop using it but you can check out your own donation total and see how your cause is getting on too. More information can be found here.
Shopping from your computer? Install the Donation Reminder – this means a box will appear if you are shopping with a retailer who participates with easy fundraising and you don’t even need to visit the easyfundraising site! All you need to do is click Activate Donations and any eligible purchase will be recorded for you. Take a look at the Donation Reminder here. It’s supported by Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari but can’t work on mobile phones or tablets.
Visit easyfundraising.org.uk – simply search for the retailer you want to shop with and click  onto them using the green ‘Go Shopping’ button. You’ll be taken straight to the retailers website and your experience will be identical as if you had gone there directly but easyfundraising will be able to track your purchase to ensure a donation for your good cause. More information can be found here.

A note about Amazon and eBay
If you’re shopping with Amazon and eBay always make sure your basket is empty before you start shopping and remember to go through the easyfundraising website or app to get to their websites. If you have the Donation Reminder it will be able to tell you when a donation is available at these two great sites.
How to collect donations at Amazon and eBay:
1. Start at easyfundraising Before you add anything to your basket, go to the easyfundraising webite or app and search for Amazon or eBay.
2. Go shopping easyfundraising will take you to their website – everything is exactly the same, even the price!

Safari Sport Support has the powerful ability to help people transform their lives and it takes a moment for us to help do this. From all at Safari MMA thank you, we couldn’t do it without you!

 

Here at Safari MMA, we want to use our platform to empower and strengthen others, by providing a space filled with tools for women to build for ourselves. To equip you with knowledge, of self, so that you can better combat problems that arise. We aim to create a space for men and women to learn more, in every area of life, to become skilled in physical activity, mental agility, emotional intelligence, but also in practical tools to better help you on your journey with your career path of choice, and so much more. We are not just an MMA club, we wish for the best versions of our students to surface, as a result of our work.

With this in mind, we are providing Gymnastic *social distancing*  class for Women and girls on Sunday 12th July. This will be held in Milton Keynes. The teen girls session will be held at 10 AM, and the Women’s session at 11AM. The classes will be held by Kati Simpson, former elite Gymnast of 18 years, British Championship competitor, Commonwealth, Scottish Team Squad member and currently coaching Elite Gymnasts at an international level.  Look out for more amazing classes like this one, designed to boost confidence, increase your serotonin level, and motivate us through this gloomy monotonous no-gym time.

After almost 11 weeks in Lockdown, the mind, and body are still going through the motions, it is definitely still an adjustment period for many of us, one that is ever-evolving. There is no shame in still feeling trapped or a little suffocated by the routine, or even still holding on to remnants of our former lives.  Having to swap work clothes for sweats, back to back Zoom call meetings, staying indoors, and feeling like we have missed out on the millions of Instagram Yoga lives, and Zoom boxing classes. It is overwhelming, and contradictory to actually serve our wellbeing, and allowing it free flow and thrive, at a time like this. Our depth for mobility is limited, and our minds over-saturated. Now more than ever, a little extra push is needed to get the blood flowing around the body, to ensure, the mind, body, and spirit, are taken care of.

With this in mind, Safari MMA has launched our biggest project to date, from 1st – 7th June 2020, we will be hosting a Global Workout Summit comprising of the most elite instructors of their fields. In bringing YOU multiple classes in one place, over a period of 7 days. We will be joined by women specialising in Ballet, Yoga, Muay Thai, Jui Jitsu, Pilates, Gymnastics, and Wellbeing, to coach you through this difficult time, without the heavy price tag. With many, many classes to choose from, your week of wellbeing workouts will be covered.

Here are some of the amazing instructors you will get to meet:

  • Joanna Ziobronowicz, BJJ Black belt, World, European, and Grand Slam champion and full-time Brazilian Jitsu professor.
