Thread: MMA/Kickboxing clubs near Upminster in Essex

    Default 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 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 Marc is a blackbelt in bjj. His club is in Chadwell heath which isn't too far from Upminister.

    Cheers John

    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.

    Adamfromessex whereabouts in Marcís Place do you train? What MA do you train in?

    Also does anyone know any dedicated Kickboxing clubs as well? Trying to find a proper Kickboxing gym

    Thanks for your help. Much appreciated.
