MIXED MARTIAL ARTS
Storm MMA offers intensive training and fight preparation for the serious competitive MMA Athlete.
MMA fighters today are some of the most dedicated, hardest training athletes working to master multiple martial arts disciplines, and honing them into a fluid style that can win fights.
It is the fastest growing sport on the planet, enormously empowering, and a great workout!
But MMA is not only for competitive fighters! It is for everyone - and you don't need to compete to train in MMA.

MMA HAS EVOLVED
Mixed Martial Arts is no longer a collection of different hand to hand combat systems such as Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Wrestling, Boxing, Kickboxing and Judo . It has evolved into an art form of its own.
Wrestling forms an extremely vital component of our MMA training at Storm Combat. Cage work, clinch work and takedowns depend on good wrestling skills, besides which, Wrestlers are the hardest people to take down and pin down.
It is not enough to simply cobble a few martial arts together and call it MMA. It has become a unique combat sport with a unique methodology.
As a Storm Combat Mixed Martial Arts student, your training schedule is multi-disciplinary and designed to support every facet of your fight preparation.
You will therefore be training in the following areas:
Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Boxing, Wrestling, Flexibility, Bag work, Weights, Road Work, Footwork, Bodyweight HIIT, Box-Fit, BJJ Open Mat and Regular Sparring.
At Storm Combat a competitive MMA Athlete can expect to train up to 23 hours per week.
At Storm Combat a recreational student can expect to train anywhere between 4 and 12 hours per week, time and personal commitments permitting.
