Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is a full contact combat sport that allows a wide variety of fighting techniques, from a mixture of martial arts. The rules allow the use of striking and grappling techniques, both while standing and on the ground. The sport is one of the fastest growing in the world and can be seen in such events as 'The Ultimate Fighting Championships" or UFC as it is known. MMA classes focus predominantly on the "up close" work needed to compete in a cage or ring fight or, indeed, the street. Clinch work, striking, takedowns, submissions, "ground n' pound" and escapes are all covered in detail.

Training revolves around 3 particular ranges and scenarios:

  • Stand-up Striking – The FightLab was born as a Muay Thai gym and we still have a heavy emphasis on striking. We now use Muay Thai initiate our MMA strategy.
  • Clinch – Learning to use Wrestling skills attack & defend against takedowns and strikes in MMA (from outside range & against the wall).
  • Ground Submission Grappling training with modified strategies that the element of striking brings to the submission grappling ground game.

Self Defence? MMA is the best form of self defence as, unlike other styles, we train against a resistant opponent in the ring, not a compliant training partner.
