We're a mixed group of martial artists, focusing on developing fighting technique, primarily in Muay Thai (striking) and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (grappling). We are a relaxed club and don't care much for gradings - instead, we focus on building confidence in your ability.

We don't care how good you are, only that you give 100% when you are at training. We also have a social side to the club too - so if you want to get fit and meet new people this might be for you!

We have individual memberships for striking/grappling, or a combined membership if you'd like to learn both!

THE GEAR

This is a combat sport, so these are essential for the sake of your and others' bodies! We have a limited amount of equipment available - but eventually you'll want your own, as we often don't have enough to go around and honestly, they get quite smelly. You can find some great deals on Amazon and Sports Direct. For BJJ, we can help get discounted gear - just talk to us! Let us know if you need more help/advice.
