    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Midlands, UK - MMA schools?

    Hey all,

    I'm after some MMA clubs in the Midlands (Birmingham area), UK.
    Preferably Brazilian Ju-Jitsu, Muay Thai, Ju-Jitsu, MMA - y'all know the usual... I'm currently training in MMA in Yorkshire and have some friends who train with and are moving back down south and want the best places to continue training.

    I've seen some posts (and trained at) Stevie-B's in Birmingham - where Gracie Barra is - but this could prove too far away for some of the people.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    (PS, I thought this was the best forum to post in - please advise if isn't! - THANKS!)

    Go to Braulio's!! I travel from Swansea to train there when I can, so you should definitely be able to get there if you live anywhere near Birmingham.

    Also, this might help; http://www.bjj.eu.com/forum/index.php?board=5.0 (list of clubs in the UK)

    Several MMA places you could try, though as I haven't trained at any of these, I can't personally vouch for them (I did briefly look at the first one a while back, but didn't end up training there - looked ok from what I saw, and they've got plenty of people competing):

    F's Freestyle
    Park View Industrial Estate,
    Pershore Road South,
    Birmingham,
    B30 3JX

    myspace page
    Map

    Right near Kings Norton train station. If you turn right and go down the hill, its behind the Toby's Carvery.

    Black Country Combat (competitors)
    15 Castle Hill,
    Dudley,
    West Midlands,
    DY1 4QF

    Map

    Then there's the aforementioned Stevie B's, which I think has an MMA class as well as being the venue for Gracie Barra Birmingham.
