    Aegis MMA

    Hi there,

    I've just moved to Bradford England from Lincoln,

    I did some kickboxing with friends in Lincoln but have been looking for somewhere to train in or around bradford, pudsey is very close to where i work and I have heard some things about an english/greek (pancration) style that exists in the uk called aegis.

    just wondering if anyone has heard of this style and how if i should get involved in it.... never heard of it myself before but i only really did kickboxing and not mma, but when i searched for kickboxing in bradford/leeds this was the first thing that came up.

    Looks pretty good to me, they train lots of different styles and the teacher used to compete for england and has been teaching mma since the 70s.....

    hope you guys can help, a friend told me you know best....

    thanks again


    here is some info..

    Not too sure, their webpage ( screams "krotty" at me though.

    Give me a sec and I might be able to point you at some people who do know.


    Try asking on their forums, if anyone knows the local MMA scene it's those guys. You might want to check them out for training too, they're based in Bradford.

      Please move to newbietown Mr. Kagan.

      johnrogers, this forum, MABS, is used for investigative threads concerning questionable martial artist and martial arts claims.


        Well, early 70's, is the old definition of MMA. Usaully meaning Mixing of Martial Arts.

        In other words a school that teaches Tai Chi, Karate, and Tae Kwon Do was a Mixed Martial Art School back in the day.

        Now it means school teaching three ranges of fighting usually for competing in MMA events.

        1) Striking.
        2) Clinch/Throwing?Sweeping
        3) Ground Game Submissions.

        Usually, schools do Boxing, Muay Thai and Brazilian JiuJitsu. This isn't always the case and doesn't mean a school not teaching the Commong three aren't just as good.


          From the OP's link....

          He is a 6th degree Black Belt and he has competed on the England Karate team as well as having trained scores of black belts and top fighters.

          He is also the Guinness World Records fastest high kicker (1989/90).

          He has made numerous TV appearances demonstrating his skills including his record breaking high kicks which are officially recorded at 9.4 kicks per second."

          Cool, we should put this guy in touch with John LaTourrette; Master Higo could then be the fastest killing machine in the world.

          OP, go to the school and try it out. Let us know what you think about it.
