Mixed Martial Arts

What is MMA?

Mixed martial arts, or MMA, is a full contact sport which combines elements of many martial arts and sports. Often seen as the most 'free' of today's high-profile combat sports, MMA involves the use of striking and grappling techniques in one comprehensive system. Not just for those who are primarily looking to compete in the sport, our classes are suitable for everyone. Whether you may be simply looking to improve your fitness, lose weight, learn how to defend yourself or just feel like giving yourself a challenge, our coaches will make sure that you are getting the most out of the class and working towards your individual goals. Of course for those looking to go further and compete in the sport, our coaches will ensure that you are progressing in the sport and that you reach a sufficient level of experience and proficiency before you step foot inside the cage. Importantly, we do not push any of our students to compete however we will fully support those who choose to do so!
