Why MMA?

Martial arts promotes empowerment, discipline, self-esteem, confidence, team building and fun, important life skills.  While the popular perception of MMA relates to highly trained athletes fighting one another, MMARAP focuses on teaching the individual the disciplines of karate, boxing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) to young people. By exposing individuals to three different disciplines MMARAP hopes to provide a more varied and engaging experience. All of these martial arts promote a positive, determined and focused approach to life.



Our company is geared towards helping give young people a focus away from a life of crime and violence; we also have a strong focus on those with learning disabilities, the partially sighted, those with hearing impairments and amputees.
