Bravo principal in 120 breathtaking kickboxing bouts for charity

The principal of Basingstoke College of Technology (BCoT) today took part in 120 two minute kickboxing fights to raise funds for the The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.

Anthony Bravo is 6 foot 5 inches tall and was National Association of Kickboxing Champion in 1995, 1996 and 1997 (each year winner of two out of the three categories: Points, Light Continuous and Full Contact) as well as national karate champion in 1996 (doing kickboxing).

The tournament today took place at the Croydon Phoenix School of Martial Arts in London, where this year they have raised over £30,000 for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, making the total in excess of £200,000.

Mr Bravo was appointed as principal at BCoT in 2009, and before that was the principal of the new Crossways Sixth Form Academy in Lewisham, London. In July the further education college improved from an Ofsted ‘satisfactory’ to an overall ‘good’ grade.
