Dominic King Judo & MMA Academy

Dominic presently teaches at grass root level but his ultimate goal is to produce an Olympic Champion within the next decade or two. He believes this to be a realistic goal because although he has never competed at the Olympic Games himself he has certainly competed against and occasionally beaten world class fighters as well as beating World and Olympic Champions in training. Dominic adds, 'This is my chance to put something back into the sport. No judo player coaching professionally in the area has seen the top level as closely as I have and I know what it takes to get there'.
Currently within the academy there are several regularly training professional and semi-professional MMA fighters. Each keen to gain knoweldge and further insight into the the many arts involved in modern mixed martial arts from Dominics unique perspective and indeed his legendary knowledge of Arm bars & Triangle submissions.

Why Train With Us

'Dominic King Judo & MMA Academy' is run by Former British Champion and Youth Olympic Silver medallist, Dominic King.
However, our club is not just for the elite. It's true, we do have some of the best judo players in the country, but we have many beginners and recreational players of all ages, fitness levels, shapes and sizes.

Our MMA sessions are mainly for adults (male & female), but we do welcome children over the age of 12 to share the same mat. So often we hear that a new member was petrified before their first session, but nobody of any age has any need to feel intimidated. We are an extremely friendly club, however if you wish to compete in the cage, we have experienced fighters competing on a regular basis and training alongside those guys you will have the potential to reach a good standard.
