Strike & Grapple
Suitable Ages 16+
Wednesday 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Strike & Grapple is currently one of the fastest growing sports in the world. Originating from the Brazilian art of Vale Tudo in the 1920s, Strike & Grapple was launched into the mainstream by the Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC) in 1993, where fighters from different backgrounds (i.e. Boxers, Kickboxers, Thai Boxers, Wrestlers, Brazillian Jui-Jitsu and Judo fighters) were matched against one and other to see who came out on top.
Our Strike and Grapple class is tailored to cover the basic foundation techniques required to gain a well-rounded skill set with the emphasis being put on safety. This allows for an enjoyable experience in your training session whilst learning the aspects required to fight successfully in any style, whether that is a single discipline or a mix of all.
Classes cover striking (from standing and on the ground), clinch work/pummel, takedowns, position, wrestling, submissions & submission defence / escapes, grappling and MMA sparring, & kickboxing.
Correct safety equipment must be worn at all times (listed on our sparring safety equipment page ).
