MMA stands for Mixed Martial Arts, and is an art form and discipline in its own right that takes its origins from a mixture of other martial arts, and focuses on a holistic style of fighting. The reason why it’s so effective is because:
Put all the Martial Arts training styles together and you have: MIXED MARTIAL ARTS
Our classes are open to all ages and experience levels, kids, men and women including people wanting a fun and exciting form of fitness training, to athletes looking to further their martial arts training.
Students focus on the striking and wrestling side of MMA, as well as the best ways to implement ground striking. In addition to learning effective self-defence techniques, students also obtain a great cardio vascular workout. By training MMA you will gain tremendous self-confidence and learn all round fighting skills as well as self-defence.
MMA does have a combat focus, but in a safe and controlled environment. Fighting in this style not only relieves stress but release aggression. Training MMA also teaches competition and great camaraderie.
"Dave is a skilled, and super friendly instructor. He runs an awesome program at ICC. You'll be safe, and happy to train here. Highly recommended!"
"Our oldest son Patrick has been training BJJ under Mario for 2 years and our middle boy Jack has just started Karate Jitsu. I cannot speak highly enough of him, the difference he has made in their lives is enormous. I'd recommend him to anyone looking to get their kids into martial arts."
"A place that is welcoming and warm. My child loved it from day 1. Professional warm instructor's. Thank you for your kindness and professionalism."
"The instructors at ICC are competent, friendly and professional but that’s not entirely why I chose to join and bring my 3 kids (2 girls and a boy) along. There are plenty of martial arts gyms with disciplined instructors but very few with the right culture and family oriented approach that make it easy for a parent to entrust their children with ICC in teaching them such an important life skill. For an old man like me and for any anyone else for that matter, the senior students have gone out of their way to pass on their skills without any condescending ego, it’s part of their journey to learn and to give back. I feel like the ICC philosophy rings true in that everyone is welcomed at ICC irrespective of their background and/or athletic ability. One final stand out for me is the large membership of girls and women in the club. As a father of 2 teenager daughters and a Girls Development Officer at a local football club it's very important for me to see the right culture is established to encourage female participation. Highly recommended."
"Amazing culture and wonderful, experienced instructors. You can't come here and not get better!"
