Thread: Where to learn MMA in London?

    Hi Fabrizio

    I train at Diesel gym - agree still 'rustic' as the showers etc just put in and its just a room to change in - nothing fancy - and to be fair never will compete with normal gyms Fitness First et al

    I would say however that the ring, matted areas etc are very good and you paid the one off drop in fee which is expensive (and on purpose)

    the monthly 80 quid or weekly 25 quid allows you to now

    train MMA x2 a week with Tommy Gerald (had Ryan Robinson/Tory Groman/Mark Smith all help too when Tommy was away)

    now also train BJJ x2 a week with heavyweight Blackbelt Thiago 'Monstro' Borges

    Muay Thai evernight mon-fri and sunday too

    for a location that close to Canary Wharf its not bad value for 10 lessons a week if you did each one (none of them clash)

    however

    if I lived where Malcontent does (west london) then - totally unbiased - would go to London Shoot for MMA - a no brainer - or down to Carlsons - as on his doorstep.

    Hi Yak,

    Thanks for the reply, do you know when they are starting the BJJ classes because it says nothing on the website.

    Come to Carlson's this wednesday at 6.30pm for Ryan Robinson's MMA class,
    followed by the No Gi BJJ class at 7.30 taught by a BJJ Black Belt (me,wilson
    or dickie).

    You can try both classes for free.

    We do 2 Muay Thai/Striking for MMA classes on Monday,Tuesday,Thursday,Friday as well as our BJJ Schedule.

    You're in Wandsworth? Well we are on the Barnes side of hammersmith Bridge-so you could get a train from Wandsworth town to Barnes,
    or drive and park for free right outside the gym.
    Or cycle there in 15 minutes.

    www.carlsongracieteam.org.uk

    p.s. Class fee's are 8 per class,or for a double class it's 10.

    NO DIRECT DEBITS,NO CONTRACTS,NO BOLLOCKS.

    Gotta say, despite my falling by the wayside - the Carlsons guys are excellent
    No natural ability, no skills, no conditioning, no hope...no quitting

    Much obliged Simon, but I've had to delay my entrance to the world off MMA/BJJ due to some health issues. Nothing major, although I won't be able to train until the end of febuary, at least that's what I've been told.

    Really appreciate you taking the time to let me know though. See you in feb
