MMA – Metropolia Martial Arts
MMA club is open for all Metropolia students who are interested in martial arts. The purpose of the club is to bring together students who care about combat sports and provide them with an opportunity to practice and spend time together. The goal is also to connect with the students from other campuses. The club gets together every week to train. Some training sessions are guided by a coach, while some are more improvised and not guided.
Currently we arrange guided sessions for boxing, kickboxing, and grappling. The selection of the sports might be expanded later if we find potential coaches among the members of the club. All members are welcome to join the training sessions since the sessions are beginner friendly! It’s recommended to have your own boxing gloves if you want to practice regularly. However, the club has some gloves to borrow, so in the beginning you don’t need to have your own gloves.
In addition to the training sessions the club occasionally gets together to watch fight events etc. You are welcome to join even if you don’t want to participate in the training sessions. The main communication platform is the club’s Whatsapp-group. The content, topic, and participants of the training sessions, as well as club’s other activity, are all decided in the Whasapp-group. You can join the club by sending an email to the address below.

Do you want to start your own club?
If you did not find a club for you, you can always start your own!
For starting a club you need:
- At least three students of Metropolia UAS, one of which acts as a responsible person for the club.
- You must held a meeting for the creation of a club. The meeting must be notified to the Student Union.
The Student Union may grant financial support to clubs whose activities are open to all students of Metropolia UAS. Grants are granted from the budget of the Student Union. Financial support is granted for the actual activities or related purposes of the Club.
METKA can also support the clubs by adversing their activities and booking spaces for the clubs use.
