MMA is the acronym for ‘Mixed Martial Arts’

In conjunction with Extreme Fighters, we run MMA classes at different levels from beginner to more advanced, and at different age levels from teens upwards.

We are proud of the facilities we can offer for training from cage drills in our full size cage to caveman cardio training or more traditional strength training in our fully equipped weights room.

The classes include various different martial arts styles which include..

  • Kickboxing
  • MMA – Mixed Martial Arts
  • BJJ – Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
  • Youth MMA – Mixed Martial Arts
  • Wrestling

The classes are run by Master Russell Dennis (8th Dan Black Belt TaeKwon-Do international instructor – over 30 years experience in TaeKwon-Do and over 10 years of MMA) so you’re in good hands with experienced instructors. Russell Dennis is 4-0 in Lightweight pro MMA.

Fancy giving it a try? – visit the Extreme Fighters website for all the details.


So the sad day has come when all the venues I use have closed due to the coronavirus Covid-19 problem until further notice. (hopefully not too much longer)

It is such a shame, as I have so many enthusiastic students who are almost as Taekwon-do crazy as I am.

As well as my obsession, Taekwon-do is my main job, so I am going to be very lost over the next month or so.

I will put up some posts/videos on our ‘Extreme Taekwon-do’ Facebook page to keep everyone ticking over. Please feel free to send messages/videos via Facebook.

You could send pattern videos for me to give some comments on or impress me with some videos of how many side kicks or turning kicks you can do in 1 minute in the living room (carefully !) or jumping kicks in the garden. I can of course answer questions and recommend or make videos.

Keep in contact and hope for a return to normality soon.

Unfortunately, we are not sure what will happen with the annual Summer camp this year yet. We will keep you posted.

Keep an eye on this site for the latest updates..
