MMA Grappling - Mixed Martial Arts Training
MMA Classes are held on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings in Basildon, Essex, with 2 Bag Training & Sparring sessions on a Tuesday and Saturday. Check the timetable for times.
Many students want a comprehensive training session which covers a multitude of fighting styles and also covers the very close range of fighting when someone grabs you, throws you or drags you to the ground.
This must be practical and provide a good competitive workout for the student. Also a number of people are attracted to the mixed martial arts after watching various television shows.
To ensure that we cater for this area of training we have taken our Championship Kickboxing skills under Tony Willis Chief Instructor of 5 Elements and a WAKO certified coach and coupled this with the supreme skills of Fergus and Alex our Grappling coaches. This gives us fantastic MMA training skills which you can enjoy either as a recreational student or to allow you to enter MMA and cage fighting competitions. Fergus continues to compete at an international level in both Judo and BJJ. Fergus has also brought in Alex Goodrich to help with the grappling coaching.
We offer the possibility for submission grappling competition for those training in MMA who dont want the full contact aspect of competition or for those interested in testing their grappling skills. For this we compete in a number of different competitions such as Ground Control.
Tony has recently been to the Renzo Gracie Academy in New York for additional BJJ training and has travelled to Thailand for many years including the past 4 years to increase his coaching abilities in kickboxing and picking up additional techniques in Muay Thai. Tony continues to learn BJJ as a private student of Royler Gracie Black Belt Eddie Kone.
This course is not an easy option and includes very physical training based predominantly around grappling flow drills with a partner and pad work. If you are looking for an intense practical workout then this is for you. All classes are held in our fully equipped martial arts academy in Basildon, Essex.
