For those of you who missed out on Sunday, here’s what we got up to!
On Sunday, March, 18th, 2018 members of our club banned together to help us fundraise for two of our big events here at the studio. One is our annual CN Tower Climb for the World Wildlife Fund and the other is our cultural experience excursion to Japan in 2021.
From 8am to 8pm our students, parents, clients, family and friends came in to keep the wheels spinning while we were live on Instagram. Along side them were fellow cyclists from 3Sixty5 Cycling, our own personal trainer Whole Health Chelsi, and fuelling us along the way was Brutes and Babes Nutrition Inc. While streaming, our viewers helped spread awareness of our mission which helped us reach beyond our $1,000.00 goal to hit $1,128.00 and it’s still continuing to climb!
So on behalf of everyone here at Kazoku Martial Arts & Fitness I would like to thank everyone who came out and to all of you who watched us ride. We would not have been able to achieve our goal without your love and support.
You can continue to watch our story unfold as we aim to climb the CN Tower on April 8th as well as visit the land of the rising sun in 2021 by following us on Facebook and Instagram.
In less than a month James Wyatt will be taking another team up the stairs of the CN Tower to help fundraise for the World Wildlife Fund. This will be his seventh year helping the WWF aim to make a positive impact in the world.
How does climbing stairs help?
In order to participate in the event, each climber must raise a minimum of $150.00, which goes towards the global efforts of the World Wildlife Fund. His team is encouraged to fundraise as much as they can, aiming for $1000.00 each year.
In addition to the CN Tower Climb, the Kazoku Martial Arts Family is also looking to fundraise for their cultural experience in Japan 2021. We will be sending our students to go train with the masters within the Seiwa Kai Association in Tokyo and to have the opportunity to experience Japanese culture first hand.
For both of these events, James has organized a 12 hour relay to be held online via Instagram (@KMACentre) this coming Sunday, March 18th to collect online donations while him and his students cycle on their stationary bikes from 8am-8pm. Viewers who donate will also have the chance to enter in our raffle for a wonderful bike (for ages 7-10) donated by our friends at 3SIXTY5 Cycling.
So be sure to follow us and watch us live as we challenge ourselves and our community to keep the wheels spinning for twelve straight hours!

Second is to help fundraise for our students to have a cultural experience in Japan in 2021. They will be training with the best in Tokyo and will then get to travel across the land of the rising sun. (Click to Donate).
From 8am to 8pm we will be keeping the spin-bikes spinning, taking turns with other members of our club. Joining us will be Chris Day and his friends from 3Sixty5 Cycling, Chelsi Rodrigues from Whole Health Chelsi, and the experts from Brutes and Babes Nutrition.
