news, latest news,

Ballarat mixed martial arts gym is moving to a larger house, despite pressure on the fitness industry during the COVID-19 pandemic. According to a planning permit application currently being advertised, Brawl MMA is considering moving from its current site in Delacombe to a CBD location at Dana Street. As part of the move, which the company also hopes to capitalize on additional foot traffic, the facility will expand to include a 24-hour gym and cafe. The company plans to open martial arts and self-defense classes from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The cafe is scheduled to be open at the same time with the option to extend from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. IN OTHER NEWS: The new facility will feature two tangled areas for Judo and MMA, as well as a five-meter-wide octagonal MMA cage, circuit and weight training areas, and a training area for children. While the business has been closed due to closures, the move has been underway for months after Brawl MMA secured a seven-year lease on the site and began moving to its new Dana Street location in June. Co-owners Clinton Vermaak and Daniel Quiddington also own the Bodyconnect and Brawl Boxing gyms in Norwich Plaza. Brawl MMA co-owner Clinton Vermaak said the business is focused on self-defense for adults and children. “If you bring 50 people into a gym and 50 of them train as MMA fighters, you would be lucky to have one or two who are competitive fighters, so the market is mostly reserved. to individual self-defense, ”he said. “Most importantly, for the self-confidence and ethics of our children and youth, this is where our market is and this is where we focus.” Mr Vermaak said the pandemic was difficult for gym owners, but he hoped to jump into the new year. “We are getting ready for the New Year and there will be a big rush, I think, when we get back to normal in the New Year,” he said.
