The sweet science of boxing uses only two points of contact: the fists! Believe it or not, throwing punches and jabs is considered by traditionalists as the most gentlemanly of combat sports.


A mix of other martial arts combat sports, MMA is a full-contact sport based on a brutal combination of punching, striking, grappling and mat fighting.

Muay Thai Boxing

Thai Boxing, or the Art of 8 limbs, is now a global combat sport incorporating eight painful points of contact including punching, elbowing, kneeing and kicking, plus clinching, leg sweeping and body throwing.

Submission grappling

With origins in 7BCE ancient Greece, all fighting in submission grappling happens at floor level, on the mat. It is like wrestling but incorporates other MMA elements, including Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Judo and Sambo.
