How Can I Get Into MMA - Ultra MMA

How Can I Get Into MMA

Mixed Martial Arts(MMA) is a difficult sport to get into because it involves several different disciplines and to compete professionally you need to be pretty good at them all across the board. You will need to learn:

  • Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
  • Kickboxing/MuayThai
  • Boxing

Ideally, you should join an MMA gym to make a start. There are many reputable gyms across the UK and if you look on the Ultra MMA website you will see a long list of gyms in almost all areas.

Ultra MMA offers a unique proposition in that we give you 8 weeks of FREE training in the 3 disciplines listed above with a set fight date at the end of the 8 weeks. In exchange for 8 weeks of FREE training, we ask that you sell some tickets to your friends and family so that they can come and support you at the event and raise some money for Cancer Research UK. All in all, it’s a pretty awesome arrangement because you get it for free.
