Englishman attempts to get Jiu-Jitsu into record book


Ebe Ghanshah has been teaching martial arts for 28 years and now wants to raise 5,000 pounds to help a hospital for terminally ill children in England.

The idea he came up with to reach his target was this: teach a 30-hour Jiu-Jitsu class in order to break the current record for “longest aerobic marathon/exercise class,” which was set at 29 hours and one minute.

The class ended yesterday, at 30 hours and one minute, as his teacher Braulio Estima reported over twitter. Ebe thus managed to combine his two passions: teaching Jiu-Jitsu and MMA with charity.

“Over these 28 years of teaching class I could see how martial arts build self-confidence, especially in teenagers and kids. That’s why I picked Keech Hospice to receive the money donated to this event,” said the Gracie Barra brown belt.

“A number of teammates supported me, and people even flew in from the USA, all to break this record, count as witnesses and to guarantee Jiu-Jitsu’s place in the Guinness World Record Book,” said Ebe, who even has a 2010 match against Rafael Mendes under his belt, during the inter-nation contest traditionally held at the European Open.

Inglês tenta incluir Jiu-Jitsu no livro dos recordes

Ebe Ghansah dá aulas de artes marciais há 28 anos, e quis levantar 5 mil libras para ajudar um hospital para crianças doentes terminais na Inglaterra.

Sua ideia foi: dar uma aula de Jiu-Jitsu durante 30 horas, e com isso quebrar o recorde atual de “maior maratona aeróbica / aula de exercício”, de 29 horas e 1 minuto.

A aula terminou ontem, com 30 horas e 1 minuto, como contou seu professor Braulio Estima em seu twitter. Ebe, com isso, conseguiu unir duas de suas paixões, o ensino de Jiu-Jitsu e MMA e a caridade.

“Nesses 28 anos dando aulas, eu vi como as artes marciais constroem a autoconfiança, especialmente para jovens e crianças. Por isso escolhi a instuição Keech Hospice para receber o dinheiro doado para este evento”, disse o faixa-marrom da Gracie Barra.

“Muitos colegas de time me apoiaram, e veio gente até dos EUA, tudo para quebrarmos esse recorde, contarmos com testemunhas e garantirmos o Jiu-Jitsu no ‘Guinness World Record Book‘”, contou Ebe, que já lutou inclusive com Rafa Mendes em 2010, na disputa de países realizada tradicionalmente no Europeu.
