Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)

Sports Development

We are the University of Southampton Mixed Martial Arts Society. We specialise in Muay Thai (Thai Boxing) and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), with additional wrestling and pure MMA classes. Muay Thai is a striking martial art using fists, elbows, knees and shins. Thai Boxing techniques have seen great success in mixed martial arts competitions such as the UFC in recent years. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a submissions orientated grappling martial art, and another necessity in MMA. Most of our classes are no-gi, but we have a gi class on Monday evenings. We also have wrestling and pure MMA classes on, and have discounted membership at the local Exile Shirley Gym. Whether you're looking to become a fighter, learn self defence, or just get fit, we provide it all. Sparring is optional, so don't feel like we're going to make you fight, though if you're interested in that we regularly take part in interclub competitions all though the year.

Training times: Monday - BJJ 7-9pm in the Martial Arts Room with Tyrone Derrick Wednesday - Muay Thai 5-7pm in Glen Eyre Hall with Daniel Victor Bourne Friday - Open mat 8-10pm in the MA room Saturday - MMA 11:30AM-1.30PM in the MA Room Sunday - Muay Thai 5.30-8PM in Glen Eyre Sports Hall Come along and give it a try - the first few sessions are free! https://www.facebook.com/groups/49654518883/ https://www.instagram.com/sumtclub/.
