Hands-On Learning

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a ground fighting sysrtem, martial sport and a great self-defence method that has its roots in the traditional Japanese martial arts of Judo and Ju Jitsu. BJJ had been developed initially by the famous Gracie family.

Our BJJ classes are taught by Head Instructor Mark Hayes, who is a Purple belt and represents  Simon McGovern's renowned McGovern Academy. Our classes are a mixture of positions, sweeps, chokes and joint locking techniques for controlling and submitting your opponent, time is given to both the proper application of techniques and live sparring. Our classes are taught in such a way that everyone from the complete beginner to the more advanced practitioner can develop.

BJJ promotes the idea that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a larger stronger opponent by using correct technique and leverage.

This course has been highly regarded by countless students throughout the years, and has provided the perfect foundation to enter the next level of learning. Get in touch with questions or to learn more.



Growing Together

Combined Fighting Arts (CFA)
Combined Fighting Arts (CFA) is our unique martial arts system, which develops well-rounded and complete martial artists. CFA has been thoughtfully created by Chief Instructor, Mark Hayes, and seamlessly blends together three complimentary art forms –

Ground fighting, Jeet Kune Do and Kali/Eskrima.

CFA classes are focused on developing effective techniques in the various fighting ranges which can be used for both self-defence and competition purposes. CFA students find the classes to be the perfect mixture of intensive exercise and effective fight training, and the system is used by our fight team to form the basis of their competitive Mixed Martial Arts training. Combined Fighting Arts is also the system that we use to train Instructors and grade students up to Black Belt level.

Kali/Eskrima  incorporates a range of techniques from the different systems studied by Chief Instructor Mark Hayes, including Inosanto Lacoste and Doce Pares, which are designed specifically for close-quarter fighting. Kali classes  focuses on developing skills in 12 areas of training including striking, edged weapons, wooden weapons, trapping and grappling; and is the perfect way to improve speed, agility and co-ordination. Both experienced martial artists and beginners alike enjoy the variation and efficacy of the Kali/Eskrima that we incorporate into our CFA classes.

Through this course, students have the opportunity to push their skills, techniques and confidence to a new level in a fun, dynamic way.

Learn and Grow

Recently Due to COVID-19, Sheffield Martial Arts Centre, had to temporally close its doors.

Just because our doors were  closed  didn't mean that we had to miss out on training. We decided to bring the gym to our students, in the form of on-line training sessions allowing them to workout along side us, in their very own living room, garage or garden.

We spent several weeks researching and trialling how to offer the very best martial arts session on-line, we adapted our very own unique Combined Fighting Arts curriculum and used Zoom as a platform for teaching our system. 

We have now set up an On-line learning resource which we would like to share with you and your family.


All you really need is a little bit of space, a computer/Laptop, Tablet or Smartphone and a get up and go attitude.

Sign up today and join us.

Personally, I’m looking forward to seeing you take part in our virtual high energy sessions using martial arts as a platform to help you relieve stress, get fitter, feel better, learn some new skills and most of all, have fun.
