Welcome to the Staffordshire University (Stoke) MMA page.
We are student lead and coached club offering a martials arts experience not currently present at Staffordshire University. With old traditional martial arts becoming less and less popular, the modern fighter now needs to be multidisiplined - being able to fight both standing and on the ground. This has been shown by the ever growing, and extremely popular UFC.
MMA (mixed martial arts) itself, like the name suggests, is a mixture of many martial arts such as; boxing, wrestling, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Muay Thai, kickboxing, taekwondo, karate and judo.
There are 3 main areas which you will learn whilst training in MMA:
We as coaches, are not here to make you into professional fighters. We simply offer a place to train, and for those who are new to the sport or just less experienced we offer a chance for you to learn and develop into a multidisiplined martial artist. However our classes are not just solely aimed at developing fighters, we also aim at giving a great place to get fit. MMA is renouned for being a grueling sport, requiring high levels of fitness. So whether you want to learn the martial arts or just get fit MMA is the sport for you.
Our classes are open to both males and females, people of all levels of experiences, and also those of you who just want to get fit. We offer a very friendly training environment, where you can meet many new people and make new friends whilst enjoying your training. So come down and give it a go.
