Mixed Martial Arts

We teach Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), a martial art created by assimilating knowledge from multiple different martial arts, such as Boxing, Muay Thai, Karate, Judo, Wrestling and more, to provide comprehensive martial art coaching.  MMA teaches self-defence, punching, kicking, elbows, knees, striking defence, takedowns and basic groundwork.  MMA is set upon the three pillars of mind (knowledge of martial arts and the body and the importance of continual education), body (martial art technique and physical health and fitness), and soul (self-development towards becoming a better person and a providing a greater contribution to the world community). 

We work through a yearly curriculum with two gradings a year, moving from white belt, through blue, purple and brown to black belt and then on to higher levels of black belt.
