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

Thanks
