    Im not saying they dont but they are originally a TKD club and therefore there bulk of fighters are semi contact fighters. I trained with them for 3 years which i did enjoy but like i said not suited to mma i dont use anything really in the cage that i lernt with them.My advice is find a good Muay Thai club

    Same, I trained with them for 3 years as well maybe a little longer. The majority of the clubs and fighters are points and semi as you said! They do have a full contact training class now and again but you would end up traveling out of bridgend to find it

    If it's not very expensive then it might be worth doing, but I only shell out good money for what I really want to do.

    I never much on my second choice.

    And mark Weir and lots of other fighters but i bet none of them train it anymore. Im not knocking it buy the way i am also a high grade in tkd and Korean kickboxing but MUAY THAI ' BJJ & WRESLING are the main arts of MMA
