World Class Mixed Martial Arts in the Midlands

The best way to get fit and healthy while having fun


SBG Portarlington is the largest MMA facility outside of Dublin and one of the most impressive in Europe. We aim to build a tribe here in Port. If your aim is self-defense, fitness or competition this is the place for you.

We have kids and teens programs to cater for all ages 4 – 17. Martial arts are great for kids who don´t necessarily thrive in team sports. Everybody is different. Sign them up and watch them grow in confidence.

Our beginners program is for adults with no prior experience and any level of fitness. We will get you in shape while having fun. When you graduate form the beginners program you may choose to spar*,or not, in the intermediate classes but it is completely up to you.

Experienced martial artists you have come to the right place. We are building a competition team here with big plans for the future. Get in touch and we can discuss your goals and see if you are a right fit for the team.

The ethos here is to have fun and be respectful to everyone no matter what stage of their journey they are at. We love what we do and we hope you do too.
Show Up – Get Better
