from the site, it looks like some kick/boxing guys decided to open up a "MMA" club? however, this place is a few minutes walk from my gf's house, so it would be good to nip in now and again if it's legit.

A guy from my work goes there mate, he raves about it!

Yes mate I've heard a bit about them.
Think Nigel Tropman is one of the coaches there. JKD blackbelt interestingly enough. If you go there, let me know how it is!

I notice this thread is pretty old but I've only joined the site today. I train at Battleground and have done since the start of this year. I really enjoy it there and would recommend taking a look if you haven't already. I only train on a purely recreational basis myself but we have a few guys who fight amateur if you're more serious.
One thing I would say about the gym that you picked up on is that it is rather striking-focussed, in that the majority of the sessions are western/thai/kick boxing. The quality of instruction in grappling however is very high imo (and being a recent convert to MMA after 20-odd years of judo I'd like to think I know enough to tell), just wish there was more of it!
Like I say, check it out if you get chance. All the lads there are genuinely really friendly too
