You don't have to be a 'Cage-Fighter' to learn MMA...

We understand that joining an MMA gym can be an intimidating experience for beginners!

At The Fighting Arts Academy, we understand that not everyone is training for a professional MMA bout. But just because you may not want to step into the cage and fight like an Ultimate Fighter, it doesn't mean you can't train like one!

Join us now to start learning the fastest growing sport in the world.

Fitness, Self-Defence, Competition or Just For Fun...

The Fighting Arts Academy is a mixed-martial arts club for everyone. Learn martial-arts used in the World of MMA and Cage-Fighting including, San Shou (Chinese Kick-boxing), Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Judo.

MMA provides a great way to get in shape, meet wonderful, driven and goal oriented people with a common passion for the arts. MMA is a great basis for self defense, and for learning life skills. There are so many stress relieving and rejuvenating qualities that can be had by training in MMA.

We are a friendly club located in a professional fighters gym with good equipment and great coaches. We have a fully matted area, cage-walls, boxing ring, punch/kick bags and other facilities.

  • Have fun, get in shape & learn practical self-defence

  • Safety is our primary concern - we only use the best equipment and the latest, most progressive teaching methods.
  • Individual help from our coaches help you master the basics, their on-going guidance assists you as your skill level increases.

Whats Your Excuse?

  • I’m too old / tired / unfit.
  • I’m not very strong or flexible.
  • I’m scared that I’ll get hurt.
  • I’m not sure women / kids should do this.
  • I’m worried about an old injury.
  • I think MMA sounds scary.

We’ve Heard These Excuses Before...

None of them are valid. Come talk to us and see for yourself.

MMA is the perfect way to get into shape. Men and women of all levels of fitness, ability and age enjoy the training at our classes. Training MMA raises your confidence levels, reduces stress and massively boosts your energy. Every student comments on how supportive, friendly and welcoming the club is - indeed, that’s the only attitude we believe is appropriate for training.

All you need is will-power and the desire to succeed.

Let us take care of the rest.

Women in MMA


The Fighting Arts Academy is about sharing the joys of the martial arts with everyone - it is not about making money. The organisation is run to break even. Fees go towards paying for equipment, insurance and gym rental. Profit is reinvested in the club.


(Standard Single Class Fee)
(Train in any 2 classes back-to-back on the same day)


To really start seeing the benefits of martial-arts training, regular dedication and commitment is required. We wanted to create a payment structure that is affordable, fair and flexible for those trying to maximise their training opportunities. We also wanted something that keeps the administrative burden low so we can spend more time on the mat (and less time doing admin).

We are happy to take payments by cash (or by card in which case an extra £1 transaction charge will apply).

Monthly payment options are only available to members and must be setup in advance at the desk.


Train in both kids classes on a Saturday and also our popular Wednesday kids class.

£60 up to x3 CLASS PER WEEK
Discounted from the pay-as-you-train rate of £100!


Train in both striking and grappling classes on Saturday, both striking and grappling classes on Tuesday, as well our Wednesday and Friday openmat sessions.

£70 up to x6 CLASS PER WEEK
Discounted from the pay-as-you-train rate of £160!

Payments are non-refundable and non-transferable. Unused classes cannot be "carried over" to the next month. Unlike most gyms, there is no minimum lock-in period for monthly deals so you can cancel at anytime.


There are some circumstances where special rates to our fee structure can apply. (Paid up membership and monthly payment arrangements are pre-requisits for these discounts to apply)

  • COACHES (& family) - NO FEES
  • MEMBER SCHOLARSHIPS (at Head Coaches discretion) - NO FEES
  • ASSISTANT COACHES - 25% DISCOUNT on monthly fees
  • FAMILY DISCOUNT - 15% DISCOUNT applied to total of family monthly fees. (siblings and/or parent+child)


In addition to class-fees, we require payment of an annual club membership fee of £45 per year. This fee covers personal indemnity insurance for the practitioner through the Martial Arts Association of Great Britain and also provides a training license and fighter log-book. In addition this fee secures your rank through affiliation with Arlans Siquera Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (part of the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation). To apply for your membership please speak to an instructor at class.
