Ok guys, so this is a fundraiser for a very good cause. With that in mind, it doesn’t really fit  to give away tickets to the event. However I have spoken with the good people over at Pride Fighting Academy and they have offered to give 2 free lessons to 1 lucky winner.

So here is how you enter:

1) Like and follow Buddy Beatdown on Facebook and Twitter respectively

2) Like and follow Muay Guy on Facebook and Twitter respectively

3) Tweet @BuddyBeatdown @MuayGuyBlog using the  hash tag #caringforkayla.

I really want to see some noise made about this event, so get to tweeting!
