Choosing a team is no easy task
We started in 2021 working from newly refurbished facilities and right now our focus is on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Kickboxing (Muay Thai) because these are the core disciplines of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). In time we will be adding other disciplines to add nuance to our fighters’ skill sets.
Choosing a gym is no easy task. With something as intense as BJJ you need to make sure the gym and instructions are right for you. Take a look around this site then come and talk to us or call 020 3503 0038. Once you have had a chat, book in for a free lesson.
What we teach
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, or BJJ, emphasises non-lethal techniques and positional dominance to gain control over an adversary without the use of any punching or kicking. The focus is on grappling, wrestling, holds and some throws.
Muay Thai (translates to “Thai Boxing”) is the national sport of Thailand. It is a martial art with roots originating from military use. Muay Thai is known as the “Art of 8 limbs” because it uses multiple points of contact – more than boxing or karate. Muay Thai is the most effective of the striking forms of martial art.
