  • Mixed Martial Arts


    What is MMA?

    Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is a full contact combat sport that allows the use of both striking and grappling arts while both standing and on the ground, including boxing, wrestling, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Muay Thai, kickboxing, karate and other styles.


    The fastest growing sport in the world

    MMA is without doubt the fatest growing sport in the world and at Trojan Free Fighters it is our aim to disspell the current perception that "cagefighting" has by getting the local area involved in the sport and providing a safe, friendly environment to practice all disciplines for martial arts.

  • Wrestling

    A wrestling bout is a physical competition, between two competitors or sparring partners, who attempt to gain and maintain a superior position. There are a wide range of styles with varying rules with both traditional historic and modern styles. At Trojan Free Fighters we focus of Greco and Freestlye wrestling.
  • Jiu Jitsu


    Checkmat Jiu Jitsu

    Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (Portuguese pronunciation: [ʒɪwˈʒitsu], English: /dʒuːˈdʒɪtsuː/) (BJJ) is a martial art, combat sport, and a self defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. The art was derived from the Japanese martial art of Kodokan judo in the early 20th century..

    What is BJJ?

    It teaches that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique—most notably by applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training can be used for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self defense.

    The art of 8 limbs

    Muay Thai is referred to as the "Art of Eight Limbs" or the "Science Of Eight Limbs" because it makes use of punches, kicks, elbows and knee strikes, thus using eight "points of contact", as opposed to "two points" (fists) in boxing and "four points" (hands and feet) used in other more regulated martial arts sports, such as kickboxing, boxing, and savate. A practitioner of Muay Thai is known as a nak muay. Western practitioners are sometimes called nak muay farang, meaning "foreign boxer."
