Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

BJJ is a self-defence martial art and combat sport based on grapplingground fighting and submission holds. It focuses on the skill of controlling one's opponent, gaining a dominant position and using a number of techniques to force them into submission via joint locks or chokeholds. 

It is extremely effective for self defence. It is fantastic exercise. And, it's very fun!

Our BJJ programme is ran by head coach Jamie Hughes. Welsh 1st Degree Black Belt and extremely successful competitor.


Muay Thai Kickboxing

Muay Thai is a combat sport of Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques.


This discipline is known as the "art of eight limbs" as it is characterized by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees, and shins. Muay Thai became widespread internationally in the late-20th to 21st century, when Westernized practitioners from Thailand began competing in kickboxing and mixed rules matches as well as matches under muay Thai rules around the world.

Our system blends Muay Thai and K1 training to form what we consider to be a complete kickboxing system. 

Belts are not worn in classes but we award them ceremonially as a mark of progression.

Submission Grappling

Submission Grappling is a form of competition and a general term for martial arts and combat sports that focus on ground fighting with the aim of obtaining a submission through the use of submission holds.


The term "submission grappling" usually refers only to the form of competition and training that does not use a gi, of the sort often worn with belts that establish rank by colour. Not using a gi has a major impact on the sport : there are many choke techniques which make use of the lapels of the gi, thus rendering them un-usable and grappling in general becomes more difficult when the opponent doesn't have a gi to grab hold of.

The sport of submission grappling brings together techniques from Catch wrestlingFolk wrestlingGreco-Roman wrestlingFreestyle wrestlingJujutsuJudoBrazilian jiu-jitsuLuta Livre and Sambo. Submission fighting as an element of a larger sport setting is very common in mixed martial arts.



MMA (Mixed Martial Arts)is a full-contact combat sport based on strikinggrappling and ground fighting, made up of various combat sports and martial arts from around the world.

Our MMA programme combines the use of Thai style Kickboxing with Submission Grappling and Wrestling.
