MMA Challenge – Charity Event


Thirty six competitors took part in a Mixed Martial Arts Challenge for charity at the Park Inn, Telford.  Most of the participants had little or no experience in martial arts however took the challenge which involved 8 weeks free intensive training at Combat Athlete in Telford and Wolverhampton MMA gym.  At the end of the training they all competed against each other at a professionally run Mixed Martial Arts event right here in Telford.

“It was a great experience I have learnt so much in just 8 weeks and to fight on the event was the ultimate personal challenge for me, I have made lots of new friends and loved the whole experience” said one of the competitors.

The whole event was to raise money for a local young Telford girl Sienna who needs constant treatment every year at a specialist hospital. The event raised close to £1000 to help with the cost towards this treatment.  Her mum who attended the event was overwhelmed with the support from the fighters and the show and thought it was amazing that MMA Challenge were helping Sienna.

Plans for the next MMA Challenge are well underway and will take place on 13th March 2016 at the Park Inn, Telford.  Training is due to start in the New Year on 16th January 2016 in Telford and Wolverhampton.  This event will be supporting the ‘Make a Wish’ Charity to help children’s dreams come true.  Competitors get 8 weeks FREE training by expert coaches before competing with full safety gear at a professionally run event in front of friends, family and colleagues.
