In our time-tested MMA gym, you will learn how to effectively strike with hands, shins, knees and elbows with our authentic Muay Thai Kickboxing, Joe Lewis Fighting Systems and western boxing training. You’ll also be trained to achieve proper defensive techniques and angles needed to avoid strikes. Speed, Timing, Accuracy, and Rhythm are taught to make our MMA Striking among the best in New England.
In MMA, learning how to fight while on the ground is an absolute must! Our World-Class BJJ or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and wrestling give you an understanding of the grappling & ground game. In this portion of the class, you are shown how to control your opponent’s positions by controlling their posture. You will learn to conquer your opponent by using various techniques such as take-downs, chokes, armbars and ground n’ pound. You will also learn how to defend against these types of attacks made against you.
Our MMA classes includes sparring, however it isn’t a requirement. All of our instructors are highly trained and care about proper instruction of each and every student. All techniques are shown, broken down and taught in a slow, controlled and most importantly, supervised environment, until such a time as the instructors feel the student has mastered the technique.
Since it’s inception, F5 has been taking the MMA World by Storm (Pun Intended) We have Pro & Amateur Fighters, many hold Titles including: Cage Titans Welter Weight Champion and 2015 National Female 135 lbs Champion!
