Elite Combat-Sports Academy

Youth High-Performance Programme

IMMAF hosted the inaugural Youth MMA World Championship tournament in Rome 2019. Now that there's an officially recognised international competition, we've expanded both our teenagers and youth MMA/BJJ programme and opened a new Elite Combat Sports Academy division. This will be open to serious competitors only with a goal of building a team of future NZ representatives.

Training will take place weekdays from 4-5pm, in addition to our existing Youth & Colts classes. Attendance is compulsory and the programme will include world-class coaching and instruction. With two NZ representatives now having graduated from our existing Colts team, if you're imagining a serious career in MMA then this programme is a must.

The Teens programme is open to those aged 13-20 years and the Youth programme is aimed for 7-12 years old.

The Elite Academy trainings are not included in the regular Under-18s or Family memberships. The programme is invitation only, with registrations of interest now open at

The Youth Academy Programme is $60 per week and includes access to each of the daily training sessions as well as the regular Youth or Colts MMA & BJJ classes.
