MMA classes in Võimla

The most diverse training is happening on our mats in Karlova. You do not have to have experience of all distances but previous (combat) sport skills are beneficial. We have people who have trained wrestling, judo, boxing and other sports as well (power lifting, rowing, basketball). We have given a lot of people their first experience in combat sports. 

To join our MMA-team you need to first commit to our beginners’ courses to learn the basics of Brazilian jiu jitsu and MMA. You can take two courses at the same time or successively. During those courses you will become more familiar with all distances used in MMA that you can combine in more advanced lessons. 

MMA is versatile, exciting and it challenges your mind and body. All training sessions are different and there is always room for development. Great high-intensity training is guaranteed and in addition you’ll get more familiar with basic self-defense skills, raise your self-esteem, help you cope with your stressful life and supports a healthy lifestyle with your new friends. 

If you want to add an extra layer of excitement to your life we invite you to join our competition team and help you to prepare to compete locally or internationally on an amateur or professional level.
