I spent several months bouncing round gyms in Manchester before really finding my forever home at ONE MMA. The gym is like one big family from the coaches to all of the members it has become a huge part of the community in helping people reach there goals. It’s great to see the guys who sign up on the trial, then a couple of months later in all of the other classes enjoying their training. If you are looking to try out a new sport and looking for a few friendly faces I couldn’t recommend ONE MMA Academy enough!
I started training at ONE MMA Academy in 2018 after watching my older brothers competitions. Two years later I have just had my first amateur MMA fight at 16 years old and I’m competing in grappling competitions. I really enjoy training and representing ONE MMA along with my brother Dylan, we both did the Teen free trial and progressed through the Teen MMA program and then on to the adults classes. Now we are training with the Pro team and also help coaching the Teen and Junior classes.
I began training at ONE MMA Academy when it first opened in 2016. Since then I have made a transformation from someone who signed up just for abit of fitness and enjoyment training to now on the verge of challenging for the Cage Warriors title. This is a testament to the world class coaching at ONE MMA and excellent structure of classes. I never thought I would compete and now it’s a career for life. I started off on the beginners classes and progressed right through to the competition team training. It’s great to see and meet so many different types of people that come through the doors!
I recently moved from Southampton and was looking for a MMA gym I could train at. I had trained in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for a couple of months before moving to Manchester and upon signing up to the free trial I was welcomed with open arms at ONE MMA. The level of coaching is really high and being a female I was nervous on the first day but I was pleased to see lots of other females training in the classes too. After 6months training I recently received my BJJ blue belt and I’m really happy with my training. I have made friends for life!
I first got in touch with ONE MMA to bring my daughters (7 & 10 year olds) down to the junior classes. I would sit and watch the kids class before the adults classes and was always curious about joining in, but at first I was to nervous to sign up. After a free 121 taster session with coach Dre I soon found out there was nothing to be nervous about, I really enjoyed it and from that day on I haven’t look back. I lost 5 stone in the first 12months of my journey and now I am an assistant coach in the Teen an Junior classes. I feel like I have come a long way from sitting at the mat side as a spectator!
