Mixed Martial Arts is the combination of many disciplines such as Boxing, Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Karate, Judo, and many more into a singular sport, allowing for both stand up striking as well as on the ground grappling. Due to this no two MMA fights will ever be the same, making it an exciting and unpredictable sport to watch. A fight can be won through Knockout, Technical Knockout, Submission, or a tap out. The two primary disciplines studied at the University club are Muay Thai (stand up) and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (Grappling).

How many teams do we have?

MMA is an individual sport and therefore we do not have teams, however there are opportunities to enter into open meets throughout the year.


Do I need anything else before I get involved?

Comfortable, non-restricting sports kit and a water bottle are all that’s needed. Gloves and pads are provided at the training sessions although your own are welcome. Gum Shields advised.
