MIXED MARTIAL ARTS (MMA)

Adding Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) to your self defence skill set is invaluable. It's a fusion of all combat fighting styles merged into one dynamic martial art and is a full-contact combat sport that allows both striking and grappling, both standing and on the ground, from other combat sports and martial arts. 


It is a complete combat sport where you’ll learn boxing, wrestling, kickboxing, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, karate, judo and other sports. It’s one of fastest growing martial arts in the world.

MMA compasses hand to hand fighting formats and martial arts systems. The main two formats are Standup Fighting (striking an opponent with your hands, feet and head) and Wresting/Groundwork (grappling i.e. grappling on the ground, getting control of an opponent by getting on top of an opponent, arm bar - submission hold).

MMA training provides all-round combat skills that will push your fitness and ability to the limits.  Training involves body conditioning drills, pad work, strength and cardio.  We wouldn't recommend MMA for absolute beginners as a grounding in in Muay Thai, Wrestling or Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is essential.
