MIXED MARTIAL ARTS

Mixed martial arts (MMA) is a full-contact combat sport and competition format that allows striking and grappling both standing and on the ground. Athletes that compete in MMA are using techniques from other combat sports and martial arts. MMA is the fastest growing combat format on the planet an we recognise that the will be a demand for it in Mombasa, we therefore we pride ourselves being the only gym that can provide the different components that MMA contain, such as Muay Thai, Judo, Boxing and Brazillian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ).
Muay Thai is referred to as the "Art of Eight Limbs" or the "Science of Eight Limbs", because it makes use of punches, kicks, elbows and knee strikes, thus using eight "points of contact", as opposed to "two points" (fists) in boxing and "four points" (hands and feet) used in other more regulated combat sports,
Boxing is a combat sport in which two people, usually wearing protective gloves, throw punches at each other for a predetermined set of time in a boxing ring. Your opponent will be within a equal weight class. It has a life changing fitness regime and creates a strong self confidence for women and men.
