Ebe breaks world record, after a 30 hour class

A MIXED martial artist fought his way into the record books after hosting a 30-hour class.

Ebe Ghansah, of the M1J14 Academy, which is based at the new Interchange Business Centre in Newport Pagnell, took the class which started at 9.30am on Sunday, May 8 and carried on until 4.46pm, making an actual time of 31 hours and 16 minutes.

However, after deducting the time taken for breaks the official time stood at 30 hours and 1 minute.

The day served multi-purposes because as well as witnessing the world record attempt people also had the chance to take part in a number of activities as part of a fun day.

There was a bouncy castle for the younger children as well as a penalty shoot-out, and of course those who wanted to watch the class were welcome to show their support for the brave students and their teacher.

The record allowed for students to take a five-minute break every hour the brave grouop volunteered to train for the full 30 hours for a place in the record books.

The previous record was just over 29 hours.

All of the money raised on the day, including sponsorship of the record, will eventually be donated to the Keech Hospice, which cares for children with life-limiting illnesses.

Ebe said: “It was awesome, with the amount of support we had. The last couple of hours were a real exercise in human resilience, we really had to dig deep. But I am so proud of all that took part and a huge thank you to those who supported us.”
