MMA Stoke On Trent

Even though Gorilla Gym places a huge focus on the wonderful, functional, and gentle Art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, the Gorilla Gym isn’t just a BJJ school.

Even though the Gorilla Gym does place a substantial emphasis on the most effective of all stand up fighting Arts; Muay Thai Boxing, the Gorilla Gym isn’t just a Boxing, or Kickboxing Gym.

Even though the Gorilla Gym does place a large emphasis on the extremely neglected aspect of fighting inside the clinch, which includes strikes (elbows, knees, hands, and so on), takedowns and throws (from Greco Roman wrestling, freestyle, and BJJ), and positional control (from Greco Roman, and Muay Thai), the Gorilla Gym is not a wrestling Gym, or MMA “fight club”.
