New Timetable at Leicester MMA Academy from August 2010

Following our summer break (August 1st to August 15th) we’ll be returning with a new timetable on Monday August 16th.


Submission Wrestling (No-Gi BJJ)
Submission Wrestling is the grappling aspect of MMA and an excellent sport in it’s own right. With Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) as its base art, this style also includes the most effective techniques from other systems such as Freestyle and Greco-Roman Wrestling, Judo and Sambo making it the ultimate in practical grappling. A wide range of skills including takedowns, pins, escapes and submission holds are covered in classes that cater for all levels. Extensive training in Submission Wrestling is a must for anyone wishing to compete in MMA.

Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)
Mixed Martial Arts, as popularised by The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), has revolutionised the martial arts world. Sometimes called “Cage Fighting”, this dynamic training and competition format combines the best of a variety of fighting arts. Competitors in this sport require a varied mix of martial arts skills and the techniques and strategies from striking arts such as Boxing and Muay Thai are blended with grappling arts such as Submission Wrestling to create the pinnacle of combat sports.
