About CORE Mixed Martial Arts

At CORE MMA, we take pride in having one of the most diverse and competitive teams in the region. Competitive grapplers, top local strikers, fitness & strength coaches all coming together to help and push each other. The team training atmosphere really helps to lift everyones level and allows the coaches to keep growing & upskilling also.

Our competitive team has consisted of Pan Pacific & Gracie Worlds BJJ Gold medalists, Legend Fighting Championships Title Contender, Oceania, Commonwealth and World Championship level wrestlers, Oceania Sanshou Champions and the IKBF Heavyweight Xtreme Thai Title Holder, as well as two New Zealand Representatives for the IMMAF Amateur World Championships in Las Vegas and most recently Hamilton's only UFC fighter. We also have many intermediate, youth & amateur level competitors.

But in truth, most of our members simply enjoy the benefits of the martial arts lifestyle.

At CORE MMA we run two styles of grading, representing the techniques of striking via Kickboxing and grappling via Brazilian Jiu Jitsu individually.

We will often take the opportunity to bring in specialist guest instructors, whose unique skillsets & experiences will help to fine-tune or expand your game.
