hi guys. first post here. ive done a search for mma gyms in south wales but ive drawn a blank.

the phone numbers for MMA cardiff are no longer working, and i cant find any contact info at all for dogs of war in penarth.

ive read there are places in merthyr and abercynon but again i cant find a phone number for them.

can anybody help me please?

Well, there's http://www.graciebarraswansea.co.uk/ but that's in Swansea. However, I highly recommend it :)

Dogs of War still definitely exist... the best person on here for you to speak to is Paul Jenkins (posts as "The Hands").

There is also Tilery Combat, the head instructor (Shakey) posts here so I'm sure he'll see this.

Another one is Celtic Pride Martial Arts, but I'm not entirely sure where they are, I think somewhere north of Newport way, maybe Abertilery?? Again, there are people who train there who post on here.

A guy who trains with us lives around that area, I'll try to find out if he knows anything about it mate (if I remember! Feel free to PM me to remind me if necessary!).

Rob, re: the www.welshfightingalliance.co.uk thang....
Only just up this week. Godders runs it as in he presses the buttons, he's just made me a Mod cos it was my idea.
It's still a massive work in progress and I've got top ideas coming out my ass (as opposed to strap-ons) which will be implimented as and when.
You wanna be the Mod-honcho for sub-grappling and BJJ on the site ?

cheers for the offer rob. ill take you up on the offer.

the hands - im in cearphilly. thats why im looking at the merthyr or abercynon places. but i havent got phone numbers for either yet and i dont know what mma's they train.

i sat in on a ju jitsu class in cardiff on tuesday. i liked a lot of what they were doing but they didnt play rough enough for me. so im going straight for the mma class.

im just bloody struggling to get info.
