No MMA or Combat Sports Experience? – Beginners' class is for you!!
For men & women aged 13+
When you book a 3days intro trial membership we will lend you some boxing gloves & shin-pads to use in class.
You should turn up for your first class in shorts (& tight undershorts) and a tightfitting t-shirt. Please avoid anything with zips or buttons and also please no jewellery.
We have a wide range of people in our beginners classes from teenagers to older folk from every demographic - MMA is an inclusive sport with high quality safety and safeguarding standards.
Beginners will be shown the fundamentals of kicks, punches, takedowns and submissions The ground game will be broken down into the 6 submission families and also the best escapes and guard passing techniques.
The beginner’s thirst for learning must be balanced with a appreciation for their own and their training partner’s safety. It takes time to build up a training relationship where sparring partners can go harder at each other while trusting each other to keep each other safe. Our coaches keep a keen eye on beginners to make sure everyone is training safely and with the right kind of attitude.
You do not have to be fit in advance to come to our classes! We will build up your endurance and sport specific strength over time. It is better to come now and begin learning sooner, than to put it off and do something else to try to get in shape before you come and try MMA.
New people are always welcome and will be shown what to do and how.
MMA is a relatively new and growing sport so helping all our beginners to become confident and to enjoy their training is a key part of developing our Team.
All you need is a bottle of water, and some enthusiasm.
We look forward to seeing you enjoying your training on the mats soon…!
