Mixed Martial Arts or better know as ‘MMA’ is a full contact sport involving striking, grappling and ground fighting.
MMA was originally promoted to find the most effective martial art. It started by putting two martial artists from different fight disciplines against each other, to see which style would be the most effective and win. Fighters then began adding other styles of fighting to their own skill sets, to become more well-rounded.
This sport has exploded in recent years, thanks to promotions such as the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) and Bellator who now host almost weekly fight events with athletes from all over the world.
The current UFC Welterweight Champion – Leon Edwards, who was raised in Erdington, trains with top striking coach, Henry Cleminson, at our facility based in Sutton Coldfield. Leon, along with others, are proof that Birmingham offers the best mixed martial arts training in the UK.
