The UWL MMA society is open to everyone of all abilities, backgrounds and genders that are looking to learn self-defence, make friends and keep fit. The society teaches students three main aspects of martial arts:
- Striking (Boxing, Kickboxing, Muay Thai etc)
- Jiu-Jitsu/BJJ (Groundwork and submissions)
- Wrestling (Grappling, Greco Roman, Judo etc)
Our club trains every Monday in Studio 2 at the UWL Sports Centre, 7:00 - 8:30 PM. We have a selection of gloves and focus pads available for training with or you are more than welcome to bring your own equipment. As well as training we arrange regular social events for our members to get together each week without their gloves on!
We are coached by the capable staff at 'In The Bag' PTC. Owned by Mr Nathan 'Bag & Tag' Jones, a professional MMA fighter in Cage Warriors and full-time coach.
With a membership fee of just £50, our club is a substantial saving in comparison to other Martial Arts gyms which often charge in excess of £50 per month!
As you progress in your training we would recommend that you invest in some of your own equipment such as Boxing/MMA Gloves; Mouth Guards; Shin pads; head guards and compression clothing. If you need information regarding where to find equipment we will be more than happy to point you in the right direction. We also have club t-shirts available, speak to a committee member if you are interested in getting one.
As MMA is a sport we will occasionally host friendly club competitions, there is no obligation to compete if you do not want to, you can just come along and have fun, learn new skills and get involved with like-minded people whilst getting in shape at the same time.

CLUB CAPTAIN - Click Here
- This role is new and includes elements of the President & Captains roles. It’s been designed to incorporate the on-field direction and the organisational elements that go into running a successful sports club on and off the field of play.
