Welcome to a new year

posted 24 Aug 2014, 16:25 by Mma Saints

Hi all you ass-kicking fighters. Welcome to a new school year and yet another season of arm bars and chokeholds. To any potential new members, we are having a give-it-a go session on Wednesday, September 10th from 13:30-14:30 in the gymnasium of the University sports centre. Swing by to try out this incredible sport and meet the fun people who you'll be fighting alongside. We will also have a booth at the sports fayre on September 13th in the sports hall of the University sports centre so drop by anytime between 11am and 5pm to talk to someone from the committee and learn more about the club. For returning members, we have new training times so make sure to check those out from the tab on the left. Can't wait to see you all soon and get training once again :) HOO-RAH! 

Good Luck in Livingston

Dr. Shark Man - brand spanking new coach!

posted 20 Feb 2014, 14:06 by Mma Saints

A quick update and massive welcome to our newest coach Yannis Papastamatiou!

Having trained in Hawaii and Florida under Relson Gracie, Ronn Shikari and Beto Nunes, Yannis holds a black belt in BJJ. He has competed in the Pacific International and Hawaii State Championships and in 2008 he won the NAGA Championships in both the gi and no-gi categories. As indicated by the red stripe on his belt, he has taught BJJ since 2005 and we are extremely lucky to have him.

Yannis also holds a PhD in Zoology/Animal Biology and he is undertaking a research fellowship at the School of Biology here at St Andrews. On top of all this, he's a great guy!

A Happy New Year!

Good afternoon all.

The club would like to wish you a belated Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

If you've been pounding yourself with booze remember to take a week off and re hydrate yourselves, we will need you in tip top shape for the beginning of the semester.

Fantastic S&C Progress

posted 3 Oct 2013, 04:54 by Mma Saints

After a couple of weeks of testing the water with the newest members, the S&C Wednesday sessions have progressed to adding in not just core workouts but hardcore interval training before hand around the track. 

Regardless of level of training, from beginner to veteran,  the committee are extremely impressed with the dedication and determination of all who turned up... even in the wind and rain! 

The only way to advance is to push yourself out of your comfort zone. 

A Supreme Turn Out!

posted 23 Sep 2013, 23:41 by Mma Saints

The committee would like to say a massive thank you to all the keen new members who have been turning out in their masses (even on a Friday night!) with big smiles and gloves at the ready. 

Dedicated members impress us the most - the more you give the more you get!

See you all tonight for our 'open mat' session!
