MMA Classes

Team Shaolin MMA are producing some of the finest MMA fighters in the Country, UK, EU & soon to be World. You can train for fun or to compete. Either way you'l be a vital part of the Team.
If your a complete beginner we will teach you the fundementals of MMA eg. Fight Stance, Striking, Clinching, Wrestling, Judo & Jiu Jitsu. We try to teach our students the concepts of the techniques they are learning. After completing a beginners course they will understand & know how to gain the advantage over an attacker. They will know how to get to dominant positions on the ground, they will know submission attacks from these positions & also know how to defend standing or on the ground when they are put in bad positions/situations.
Experienced Martial Artists are welcome to join our intermediate galway mma classes & learn the more advanced techniques. They will learn to chain attacks whilst grappling, or to chain striking into wrestling into a submission. They can participate in sparring & the more competitive training drills. We do not believe in (Sparring Hard) it will not be tolerated in the Academy as it stops progression and is not benifitial to anything but the Ego. We have Pro & Amateur level Galway MMA competitors & coaches at the Shaolin MMA Galway Academy. We welcome anyone from other clubs through our doors for sparring or any extra training. Oss
