Head Instructor Ali was 4 years old when he started Karate which was soon followed by boxing. He was very young when he watched his first Bruce Lee movie. From that point on, he became fanatical about Martial Arts, training and travelling the world developing his knowledge through various styles of martial arts.
Head Instructor Ali has been travelling in different parts of the world training in different styles of Martial Arts under other masters and instructors, seeking to learn and teach the best and most effective Martial Arts to his students. Head Instructor Ali has trained and currently training in the following Martial Arts/Combat styles: ITF, KAPAP, CQC, Grappling, BJJ, Muay Thai, Kick Boxing, Pressure Points, Weapons, Karate, Judo, and Wrestling. Due to this training and philosophy, classes at the British MMA incorporate elements of these skills into all our sessions. Head Instructor Ali’s focus is to provide strategy and direction for British MMA as well as Mentoring and guiding the team of instructors in order to achieve British MMA’s Mission and Vision.
This commitment to making martial arts accessible and fun for everyone has led to classes being taught at various locations every week in West London, and the British MMA being recognised as a UK approved club from the British Martial Arts and Boxing Association (BMABA).
