As of Monday July 19th, training returns to normal with no social distancing requirements at all. So all classes will contain the stuff we love the most - Pad work, drills, grappling, sparring and all the other things we do best!

There is no longer any need to book classes in advance, so just show up as usual to training.

​However, that being said, commons sense should still prevail. If you feel unwell or are suffering from any Coronavirus symptoms, or have been around anybody who has, please stay at home and avoid the gym for at 10 days after all symptoms have cleared. If you feel uncomfortable in groups of people, please stay at home and avoid the gym.

Shahab "Shabba" Uddin - Head Coach 

Shahab has been training Muay Thai for over two decades and teaching for more than 10 years. He is described by his peers as one of the most technical practitioners of Muay Thai in the sport.


Shahab has spent time training in Thailand at the world renowned WMC camp. In the UK, he trained under Heavyweight European and UK Muay Thai and K1 champ, Christian Knowles at the Minotaur Gym.


Unfortunately, he is also a Southpaw :)

Elias "Juice Boy" Abreu

Elias is a currently active MMA fighter who's already beaten some big names in his stand up K-1 and Muay Thai bouts. He's an all-round practitioner with a penchant for stand up fighting. His unorthadox style makes him a very tricky competitor and he's happy to teach all of the considerable skills that he's amassed to date.

Andrew "Manchild" Herrmann

Andrew is an active MMA fighter with several wins under his belt in Muay Thai, BJJ and MMA bouts. His attention to detail when it comes to technique makes him a great teacher and practitioner. Don't let his mild manner fool you; he's an animal underneath!!

Darren "Daz" Jones

Daz is the founder of Force MMA and our head MMA coach at the Barnet Combat Academy. He has taught MMA for over a decade and his highest coaching accolade is his student Jamie Richardson (see photo) an active professional MMA fighter who recently fought for the Cage Warriors World title.

Daz's attention to detail and non nonsense atitude is what separates him from the rest and is a big hit with begginers looking to take up the sport.

Ricardo "Ricky" Cidra

Ricky is a Purple Belt in Brazialian Jiu Jitsu and our head BJJ coach. He is an active competitor as well as a coach, holding the British NoGi title as well as multiple medals in the Gi.

Ricky is a bona fide Brazilain so you can expect 100% authenticity in all his teaching!

Tanya"Killer" Kailides

After earning a BSc (Hons) in Human Biology from Loughborough, Tanya has been a full time Strength & Conditioning coach and personal trainer for over a decade. She actively competes in weightlifting competitions around the country and is a very proficient Muay Thai Boxing practitioner.

All these accolades make her the perfect S&C coach at BCA. Her sessions compliment the fight sports we practice at our club, providing a whole-body workout you won't forget!

Lee "Right Hand" Wrighton

Lee joined BCA coming from a Kickboxing background. However, he took to Muay Thai like a duck to water! Having fought successfully for the gym numerous times, we're very pleased to have him as part of the faculty.

Lee brings as much fun to his classes as he does hard work. So be prepared to get as much of an abs workout from laughing as you will from crunches!



MMA (Mixed Martial Arts)

A full-contact combat sport that allows the use of both striking and grappling techniques, both standing and on the ground, from a variety of other combat sports and martial arts (although the striking is predominantly Muay Thai techniques which the grappling is a mixture of BJJ and wrestling).

BJJ (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu)

A martial art, combat sport, and a self defence system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique, taking the fight to the ground – most notably by applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self-defence. 


Muay Thai

Also known as Thai Boxing. A martial art from Thailand which uses stand-up striking and clinching techniques. It makes prominent use of punches, kicks, elbow strikes, and knee strikes, using eight points of contact, in contrast to the hands and feet (four contact points) more often relied upon in other martial arts. Numerous techniques associated with Muay Thai can be found in MMA.

Strength and Conditioning

Our  Strength & Conditioning classes put you through a rigorous training session which will have you lifting kettlebells, doing high intensity interval cardio (HIIT), movement based strength work and more! All these stacked in a way that will have you fitter and stronger than ever before... No two classes are the same, so the training never gets repetitive and keeps your body guessing!
