View Full Version : MMA Gyms in North West London
15-07-2008, 11:40 PM
I'm new to the forum and I couldn't find a thread linked with this but I was wondering does anyone know if there's any MMA gyms in North West London?
It seems like there's no MMA places what so ever in North London?

Thanks for the reply.
London shootfighters is still a while away transport wise, and although I wouldnt mind the journey and i'm itching to train there, being a student and wanting to train regularly would probably have an effect on both my bank balance and my work.
The Gracie Barra in Kensal from what i've heard is just strictly BJJ without striking.
Is there any other options in North West London?

Thanks for the kind replies guys.
I got excited when I saw the list of MMA gyms but I've just finished looking into them and most of them are East London based except for the Carlson Gracie option which is South West :(
The Titan fighter gym also seemed like a good gym but is about 2 and a half to 3 hours away.
I spoke to quite alot of MMA fans in the area and they're in the same boat as me. Is it possible that there's a huge patch of London yet to discover an MMA gym? :(
Again I'd like to thank you all for the replies

I am an instructor at Carlsons.
I know London very well as i've lived here all my life.
If you are in North West London you shouldn't consider going ANYWHERE but
People travel from all around the South East to train there and you are within 4 miles of it.
London Shoot is in North West London,just the southern part of it.
It's going to be a lot quicker getting there than to all the gyms in North East
London that Anton kindly told you about.
And CARLSON GRACIE TEAM are a 10 minute walk from HAMMERSMITH tube station,west london's biggest tube terminal with links all over North West London.
You may have to accept that you aren't going to find a world class MMA gym
on Hendon High street or Cricklewood Broadway or whatever local area you live in,and jump on a tube,bus or bicycle for a 20 minute journey.

I think we should even be grateful to life whenever we are unsuccessful or unlucky.RS Gold (http://www.gobuycheaprsgold.com) Only by doing this can we find our weakness and shortcoming when we fail.Buy WOW Gold (http://www.zyy.com) We can also get relief and warmth when we are unlucky,RuneScape Gold (http://www.storeingame.com) this can help us find our courage to overcome the difficulties we may face, and receive great impetus to move on.Buy WOW Gold (http://www.shinywowgold.com/) We should treat our frustration and misfortune in our life in the other way just as President Roosevelt did. We should be grateful all the time and keep having a healthy attitude to our life forever, keep having perfect characters and enterprising spirit.WOW Power Leveling (http://www.storeingame.com/level/World-of-Warcraft-EU/power-leveling/) Being grateful is not only a kind of comfort, not an escape from life and nor thinking of winning in spirit like Ah Q. Being grateful is a way to sing for our life which comes just from our love and hope.

Carlson is probably your closest and a great group of guys :)
London Pancrase no longer exists but most of those guys are now at MMA Clinic.
If I was you I would check a few gyms. If you find a gym you're happy with it's worth the travel.
I personally would check out KO Gym!! :rolleyes:
