Mixed Martial Artsmma

The fastest growing sport on earth, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) represents a fundamental part of Absolute MMA.

As its name implies, MMA is a combination and refinement of the very best of all martial arts and combat sports for use in a full-contact and competitive environment.

MMA is a diverse ring and cage-proven form of self-defence and a fantastic way to get fitter, stronger and more confident.


Brazilian Jiu-Jitsubjj-thiago

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) was the first martial art to dominate the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and it remains one of the most effective forms of self-defence and an essential component of modern MMA.

A grappling-centric art, the goal of BJJ is to force your opponent into submission with joint locks and chokes. The emphasis is on technique and leverage and BJJ was designed to allow a smaller person defeat a stronger foe with ease.


Muay Thai

Muay Thai, "The Art of Eight Limbs", is one of the most devastating striking arts in the world.

Utilizing punches, elbows, kicks and knees, Muay Thai teaches ring-proven techniques for the competitive arena and self-defence.

Although the Thai art is a challenging physical workout that will hone your balance, speed and power, Absolute MMA has classes for all fitness and skill levels.



An intricate and challenging sport, boxing calls for the use of punches combined with head movement, footwork, timing, intuition, power and speed. "The sweet science" is a simple art to learn but a difficult art to master.

Absolute MMA has boxing classes for all experience and fitness levels. Whether you are looking to enter professional and amateur competition or if you are just getting started, we have the perfect class for you.



Wrestling is one of the oldest sports in the world and a core part of mixed martial arts.

Absolute MMA and Conditioning's wrestling program teaches takedowns, takedown defence and positional dominance for mixed martial arts, allowing you to dictate the flow of the fight.

Wrestling is also fantastic for developing explosive power, strength, balance and leverage skills.


Self Defenceself-defence

Self Defence Program aims is to develop your ability to respond to potentially threatening situations. The classes will predominantly utilise Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques and strategies that were originally developed to keep students safe in combative scenarios.

This is not a class where we will cover a multitude of alternatives for a single situation, but rather a reduced set of techniques that you will be able to utilise without delay should the need arise.


Kid's Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

The Absolute Kid's Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Program helps build life skills for your child through Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ). Your child will develop discipline, respect, honour, leadership and self-confidence, and much more.

Our program ensures that your child is bully-proof and ready to face life's challenges.


Functional Strength

Although it will help you get in the best shape of your life, Absolute MMA and Conditioning’s Functional Strength classes will develop muscles that you can actually use, not just show.

Utilizing compound lifts with kettlebells, barbells and bodyweight exercises, our Functional Strength classes will help you develop real strength for real life.


FIT Classes, HIIT and Conditioning

Our Boxing FIT, Kickboxing FIT and MMA FIT programs use real combat sport techniques in a supportive and positive non-contact environment and they will quickly get you into fighting fit condition while teaching you a lot of new skills along the way.

Perfect for athletes and anyone who take their fitness seriously, our HIIT and Conditioning classes will get you in fighting shape fast using a variety of training equipment and training protocols.


Yoga for Combat Sports

Absolute MMA offers a yoga program which will help the active martial artist to recover, stretch, and work on their mobility, as well as build and adapt their body to become more resilient to the harsh demands of their training.

Our yoga classes will improve breathing awareness, flexibility, mobility and allow for increased balance. Yoga classes are designed to aid and support you in your busy training schedule and ensure you are feeling loose, mobile and de-stressed, ready for your next session.
