MMA/Kickboxing clubs near Upminster in Essex
Does anyone know of any MMA clubs in the Upminster/Hornchurch region?
I've watched UFC/kickboxing for a few years now and have thought about taking up training for some time. I have done a couple of kickboxing classes before and I found those good. However they were in rented halls rather than dedicated gyms so I was a little disappointed at the same time.
Are people who train but donít fight looked down upon in MMA? The reason I ask is because I donít really want to be pressured into fighting. I just want to train and learn the skills as I think itís a great sport. If Iím any good, which I doubt as Iím now nearing 26, I would do some sparring.
If anyone can help me it would be very much appreciated
Try Jon Hegans club in Upminister www.kravmagacombat.com. Jon is a purple belt in BJJ and Black belt in judo as well as being an instructor in Kravmaga.
You can also try Marc walders club www.bjj-online.com Marc is a blackbelt in bjj. His club is in Chadwell heath which isn't too far from Upminister.
marc's place is where i train, easy to get to from upminster if u drive, pm me.
Thanks for the quick response lads.
I've had a look on the Kravmaga site and it looks like mainly self-defence. Am I reading it right?
That BJJ club looks good. May well give the instructor a buzz.
