Martial arts fund-raiser earns about $1,000

LONDONDERRY - A martial arts exhibition fund-raiser held on April 13 at Flood Brook School by Alexander's Martial Arts raised close to $1,000 for local athletes, including Flood Book Athletic Assoc. (FBAA) and Alexander's Martial Arts Scholarship Fund.

Money was also raised to send Brianna Luman - along with her family - to Ireland to cmpete in the Martial Arts World Games as a member of Team America. The money was raised through concessions stands proceeds - 100 percent of which went to fund Luman's trip.

During the fund-raiser, Master Huzon Alexander competed in 20 continuous rounds that were a minute and a half long each taking a one minute break in between. Alexander competed against numerous opponents, all of whom had rested for four to seven rounds before competing in the next event. Alexander displayed stamina and martial arts versatility showing his expertise in Grappling, Martial Arts Point Sparing, Boxing, Kickboxing and Fusion Fighting (UFC without punching a downed opponent) as part of the fund-raiser.

"The need for martial arts and the morals and life lessons we teach ... are more and more on demand, but the money is becoming less and less," said Alexander.

The Vermont Martial Arts Academy also competed in the fund-raiser.
