Maria Carrera
Founder Carrera’s Studio, Martial Arts.
Maria Carrera began her through the martial arts world in 1990. In January 2011 was named U.F.A.M. (United Martial Arts Federation) English President.

In 2001 and 2003 she was the World Association Martial Arts International (W.A.M.A.I.) World Champion. She has been Spanish National Champion eleven times, and a Silver Medallist and Bronze Medallist in the British Championship in 1995 and 1999 respectively. In 2004 she was also the Gold Medallist in the CIMAC World Cup.

From 1991, she has also been working both in Spain and Britain, very closely in the field of martial arts education for children and young people.

During her career she has been fortunate to train with some notable figures in the world of martial arts, including: Dominique Valera, Fumio de Mura, Joe Lewis, Don Wilson, Dan Severn, Kathy Long, Frank Shamrock, Cung Lee Ron Balicki, Diana Inosanto, Tony Blauer, Bus Rutten, Stephen K Hayes, Michael Chaturantabut, Michael McDonalds, Mike Lee Kanereck, Bob Breen, Vladimir Vasiliev 

Finally, something that she feels very proud of, she was voted Best Female Sportswoman of her hometown (Viladecans, Barcelona) in 1998, and in 2003 received the same title from the A.M.A.I. (Association Martial Arts International).

As a reputable sportswoman, she offers Corporate Social Responsibility, and she is raising funds for Joy for Humanity by doing a Push-Ups Challenge among others on 23rd June 2018.

Joseph Lukwago
Founder and CEO Joy for Humanity.
A humanitarian and at times sporty, Joseph believes that this World can be a better place for everyone if we work in Oneness because Partnerships are instrumental in solving the most pressing challenges of the World.

As one of his greatest inspirational leader Nelson Mandela once said, there is nothing he fears more than waking up without a program that will help to bring a little happiness to those with no resources, those who are poor and ridden with terminal diseases.

Joseph believes failure is not an option and he is, therefore, taking on the Push-Ups challenge with a World Champion to support the work of Joy for Humanity in Uganda.

Together with your support, the aim is to champion Global Goals of No Poverty, good health and wellbeing, quality education, industry innovation and infrastructure, climate change, Peace, Justice and strong institutions among others.
