What is Mixed Martial Arts?

Mixed Martial Arts (more commonly known as MMA) is a combat sport that utilises the aspects of many other martial arts disciplines. It is a modern sport that merges Boxing, Kickboxing, Wrestling and Brazilian Jujitsu.

MMA is open to everyone from complete beginners to advanced martial artists. If you have reservations about being a novice then fear not because every year there are many students keen to learn who have never trained in a Mixed Martial Arts before.
