    there's seriously loads in the north west mate, try using the search function for manchester mma clubs or north west mma and there'll be plenty of related stuff for you to browse.

    I used to live in Winsford & had to travel to find any decent training. There was a thai boxing class held in a church hall off delamere st. & there was a submission class at crewe judo club. I think you'll have to travel though if you want mma.

    yeah i think the gym on delamere street closed down. Theres one or two places in crewe i think but not much advertised. The closest i can find is manchester or wolfslair in widnes. Any1 got any info on either manc or wolfslair?

    I think Wolfslair in Widnes is easy to get to from Winsford. Just try them all & see which is worth making the effort for.

    Indeed. Someone I train with from King's Lynn goes down there even though it's 4/5 hours away. I thinik he's stopped going now though, after breaking someone's foot in a toe hold and this guy had a fight coming up (...oops!).

    I am also new to MMA and i have a favour to ask.
    Could please someone write me a quick review of UK's top MMA competitions?
    I know only Cage Rage and King of the Cage.
    And what is the difference between amateur and profesional MMA events?
