Satorishido kickboxers complete 150,000 press-up challenge for charity

Three north-east kickboxing instructors completed a mammoth press-up challenge in aid of Hamish Dears Just Giving Charity.

Leon Bremaneson, David Krasjuk, and Douglas Morrison from the Aberdeen Satorishido Kickboxing branch started 2020 with the intention of completing a combined 150,000 press-ups before the end of the year.

At roughly 140 press-ups per day, the trio wanted to raise as much as possible for Hamish Dear’s Warm Hugs as they are friends of the founders and have raised £1,190.00 on completion of their challenge last week.

Mr Bremaneson, who kick-started the challenge, said: “We wanted to do something different but more enduring.

“It was harder than I thought it would be, especially since the three of us are kickboxers with an above average fitness level. We all had a different approach to fitting the press-ups into our week and kept track of our progress using an app.”

Mr Bremaneson said: “It was always going to take some level of self motivation to do everyday but I found it harder when we had to do it from home.”

The money raised will allow the charity support poorly children by providing a toy after an operation or provide families with vouchers for day-trip activities.

Mr Bremaneson added: “My best friend and his wife set up the charity after their son lost his battle with cancer.
