Mixed Martial Arts

I am pleased to say that PC Russ Peacock and I are running a class at the Netley gym at 1630 to 1800 hours every Wednesday. This will not be a fight club by any means, but more learning and drilling sessions which will predominantly cover groundwork (but will include striking). It is not Personal Safety Training, but will improve self-defence skills.

Russ and I have been teaching the grappling and wrestling club at Netley for the past 2 years and are both very passionate about officer safety. The club is registered with Police Sport UK and for those interested, there are annual competitions to work towards.

No kit will be required other than shorts and t-shirt or tracksuits without zips. Tight lycra is optional.

Russ Peacock has trained in Mixed Martial Arts for over 15 years and competed at a high level. He has also won medals in National Police competitions.

Mike has trained in Karate for over 30 years and competed Internationally. He now trains in MMA and regularly competes in grappling, winning the European championships this year.

Whether you want to improve your fitness or learn Martial Arts in a safe and relaxed environment, these sessions are designed to cater for police officers lifestyles (no commitment around shifts and IT IS FREE).

For further information, please contact Michael.lynch@hampshire.pnn.police.uk or Russell.peacock@hampshire.pnn.police.uk  

Grappling classes have started with 10 staff turning out for the first session at Southdowns College. If you would like to join it please email Michael.
