Thread: MMA Gyms in North West London

    Default MMA Gyms in North West London

    Hey guys,

    I'm new to the forum and I couldn't find a thread linked with this but I was wondering does anyone know if there's any MMA gyms in North West London?
    It seems like there's no MMA places what so ever in North London?

    Thanks for the reply.

    London shootfighters is still a while away transport wise, and although I wouldnt mind the journey and i'm itching to train there, being a student and wanting to train regularly would probably have an effect on both my bank balance and my work.

    The Gracie Barra in Kensal from what i've heard is just strictly BJJ without striking.

    Is there any other options in North West London?

    Thanks again

    Thanks for the kind replies guys.

    I got excited when I saw the list of MMA gyms but I've just finished looking into them and most of them are East London based except for the Carlson Gracie option which is South West

    The Titan fighter gym also seemed like a good gym but is about 2 and a half to 3 hours away.

    I spoke to quite alot of MMA fans in the area and they're in the same boat as me. Is it possible that there's a huge patch of London yet to discover an MMA gym?

    Again I'd like to thank you all for the replies

    Hi Rowdy,

    I am an instructor at Carlsons.

    I know London very well as i've lived here all my life.

    If you are in North West London you shouldn't consider going ANYWHERE but
    London Shoot.

    People travel from all around the South East to train there and you are within 4 miles of it.

    London Shoot is in North West London,just the southern part of it.

    It's going to be a lot quicker getting there than to all the gyms in North East
    London that Anton kindly told you about.

    And CARLSON GRACIE TEAM are a 10 minute walk from HAMMERSMITH tube station,west london's biggest tube terminal with links all over North West London.

    You may have to accept that you aren't going to find a world class MMA gym
    on Hendon High street or Cricklewood Broadway or whatever local area you live in,and jump on a tube,bus or bicycle for a 20 minute journey.

    Good training
