Have A Look Around FCG Balham


Some frequently ask questions.

While there are MMA gyms all over the UK, the country’s capital is the place to be if you want to experience the best that the world of combat sport has to offer. Attracting some of the industry’s top talent, London is home to many world-class MMA gyms, including our own Fight City Gym in Balham, Moorgate, and Elephant Park.

You can find MMA classes to suit most budgets, with the choice to pay per class or pay a monthly or yearly subscription to your MMA gym of choice. On average, you can expect to pay between £7-£20 for an hour session or a monthly subscription fee of between £85-£100 per month for classes.

You should train at least 3 times per week if you are serious about your MMA training. A beginner should start training 2-3 times a week until they have increased their stamina and physical strength enough to train more.

Professional MMA fighters typically train 5-6 times a week for an average of 20-24 hours.
