Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)

Sports Development

Whether you're looking to learn self-defence, get fit or fight, Mixed Martial Arts is a brilliant way to improve yourself both physically and mentally.

We specialise in Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, with additional wrestling and MMA classes. We're a friendly and sociable club always willing to take on beginners, so don't feel intimidated if it's your first time! Don't hesitate to get in touch with a member of our committee if you'd like more information.


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, however we do have a gi class on Monday evenings. We also have wrestling and MMA classes on Saturdays, and have discounted membership at the local Exile Shirley Gym where you can take your training to the next level.

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 fighting we regularly take part in interclub competitions throughout the year.

Training times:
Monday - BJJ 7-10pm in the Martial Arts Room

Wednesday - Muay Thai 5-7pm in Glen Eyre Hall with Daniel Victor Bourne

Friday - Open mat 8-10pm in the MA room

Saturday - BJJ/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 week is free!

Assassins Society - The Guild

Outdoor Activities, Sport and Health

The Assassins' guild is based upon the idea of players tracking down, locating and performing 'mock assassinations' upon other members within the society, whilst trying to avoid detection by their targets, being located themselves or being assassinated themselves. It is a game of cunning and creativity, with each player being totally free to choose how they approach their challenges. The game is not meant to be taken seriously, with players actually harming or engaging in any form of physical or verbal confrontation, as the name might suggest, but instead taken with a touch of humor and light-heartedness
