Postby alphaccalpha » Sun Sep 06, 2009 2:32 pm

Hi All

Im very interested in the MMA group in Akrotiri/Limassol that ViperMMA mentioned in a previous post.
Tried to PM him but it was not functioning.
If anyone has the details regarding the group, please email me at alphaccalpha@yahoo.com
Info regarding any other MMA groups in Limassol is welcome too.

Thanks

Sorry gents, totally forgot about this post.... I was teaching MMA at Akrotiri RAF base on tuesdays and thursday nights but due to lack of interest I stopped and started to concentrate on my own training.

The only gym I know on island that concentrates on MMA is in Larnaca:

http://mmacombatcyprus.com/

They have recently showcased their first professional MMA fight to the audience of Cyprus and I think it went down pretty well, wether that is due to being a local show with the local lad fighting is yet to be seen but they are looking to host more shows next year so time will tell.

For training stand up here in Limassol, you could try any of the many Thai boxing gyms, I use Lumpinee. For ground work there is always Cyprus Gracie Barra, they also train No Gi but mainly Gi.

As far as open mats etc, chances are the above mentioned gym is the only one able to offer you what you are used to in the UK, it is still a relatively young sport out here, much like the late 90's early 2000's in the UK.

For further info contact me on 5436matth@armymail.mod.uk

Hi Guys,

My name is Marios and I was reading your posts regarding MMA training and I would like to give you a heads up for the place I train at.
The instructor is a Brazilian professional fighter - Francisco Silva.
Right now he is in Germany for a fight, but we still get together to train by ourselves. Feel free to drop in and check it out.
We train at the basement of Estella Hotel in the tourist area (near Yermasogeia Police Station)
The classes are on Monday Wednesday and Friday. On Mondays and Fridays at 19:00-21:00 and Fridays at 20:30-22:00
Hope this helps.

Hi John. This is great!!
I would very much like to meet you when you come over and I am sure all the guys that train MMA and Jiu-Jitsu here in Cyprus would like to meet you. It is very exciting when accomplished Martial Artists come to live and teach in Cyprus.
In which town will you be opening your academy?(Hopefully Limassol)
If you have any questions about Cyprus or if you want any help settling in please don't hesitate to ask.
My email is mchris1@gmail.com

Regards,
Marios
