Originally known as “The Bat Cave MMA Gym”, we officially launched in January 2014 when Brenden Flanagan – already an accomplished MMA fighter and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner under Carlson Gracie UK – decided to bring his love of mixed martial-arts to the general public in Berkshire. “TEAM BATCAVE” as it’s now known, provides you with friendly environment to work towards your goals.

We have a variety of students at the Club who train for various reasons – whether it’s for fitness, social or with competitive goals in mind, we can guide you in the right direction. The rest is up to you.

What is MMA? MMA stands for Mixed Martial-Arts – a concept often misunderstood. If you practice a variety of martial-arts, from striking to grappling. Then you are by definition an MMA practitioner.

We’ve designed our timetable to help those wanting to practice a variety of martial-arts and combat sports. The timetable also helps those looking to focus on individual areas like Striking – with our Boxing and Kickboxibg classes. Or to focus on purely Grappling – like BJJ and Wrestling.
