The rules allow the use of striking & clinch techniques from Muay Thai & grappling from Wrestling, 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 'The Ultimate Fighting Championships".

Muay Thai

Muay Thai or Thai Boxing is the national sport and cultural martial art of Thailand. It was developed several hundreds of years ago as a form of combat that utilises the entire body as a weapon. This physical and mental discipline which includes combat on shins is known as “the art of eight limbs” because it is characterised by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees, shins, being associated with a good physical preparation that makes a full-contact fighter very efficient.
Beginners class Tuesday 8pm

Training revolves around 3 particular ranges and scenarios:

  • Muay Thai – 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 & Muay Thai clinch 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.

All classes are taught by Kru Mark Rawson with additional training by SBG Bradford & England MMA team coach & Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt Professor Mark "Spenna' Spencer.

Self Defence? MMA & Muay Thai are the best forms of self defence as, unlike other styles, we train against a resistant opponent in the ring, not a compliant training partner.
