Mixed Martial Arts is a fast growing sport which involves techniques from lots of different styles. You will learn the striking techniques from Muay Thai, Kickboxing, Taekwando, and Boxing, plus the takedown techniques from Muay Thai, Judo, Wrestling, Jiu Jitsu, the ground control from Wrestling and Jiu Jitsu, plus Jiu Jitsu submission techniques.
You will start by slowly learning the correct technique for striking and the fundamental movements used in groundwork. You will quickly progress to learning some basic takedowns and submissions. At this point you will also be aware that your fitness is improving.
After reaching an intermediate level you can choose a number of options. You can continue to train as a “participant”, enjoying your learning while getting fitter and stronger. You could attend our workshops and learn more about being an official or coach. Or you could work towards competition as an “athlete”.
MMA competition starts at interclub level which is limited contact. Full contact starts at Amateur C which is no head contact, then Amateur B which is no head contact on the ground. This is followed by Amateur A which is head contact on the ground, which can then lead to professional level.

Together we are able to give you all the coaching you need to achieve whatever goals you set yourself, as a participant, official, aspirant coach, or athlete.

“I never felt so welcome at a gym. I’ve been there 14 months and felt my progression as an MMA athlete go to the roof. My striking has improved a lot and my confidence has risen dramatically”
