We are the University of Chester's six year strong Mixed Martial Arts Club!
 

We train everyone from beginners to experienced fighters, in a mixture of Kickboxing, Submission Wrestling and Grappling. This up and coming sport is a great way to make friends, get fit and have fun! Our members, once confident with their skills, have the opportunity to compete in Inter-clubs, Grappling Competitions, and Amateur MMA Fights on a variety of promotions.

So far, this year has been a great success. We have beaten our record for number of members, and have kept the participation high. We have so far raised over £1000 for charity, via sponsored walks, Row-a-thons and other events.

On the 11th of Feb we hosted our very own charity grappling competition. This event is bringing clubs from all over the North-West together, for a friendly competition. We had 40 competitors from our club, Gracies, IPC Wrexham and Foundation Martial Arts, among others. This event has raised £560 for our chosen charity, Chapter, a mental health charity for Chester and west Cheshire.

In the coming weeks we are having a group outing to watch our Trainer and founding member of the club, Jordan 'The Renegade' Baxter, fight for a new British title. We celebrated Christmas in our usual fashion! With an all you can eat buffet, followed by a visit to Chester’s trampoline park, Flip Out, and a sexy santa themed social.

Outside of training, we take part in University based activities, such as Sports Presentation. This year we were the winners of the UoC's mannequin challenge. We have nights out every Wednesday on societies night, as well as team activities such as getting together to watch the UFC, ice skating, and meals to celebrate achievements and end of year, and Christmas.

We hope you take the opportunity to come and train with us, at UoC's biggest Martial Arts Club.
