I’m Neil Huntley, the head coach and founder of Strike or Submit. I’ve been a professional MMA fighter for over 10 years and have over 20 years’ experience in a variety of other martial arts disciplines.
Not so long ago my boxing coach gave me the opportunity to take over a room in the new premises of Empire Boxing Club and under the banner of the “Fight Factory. Along with a group of friends, I decided to use this for MMA training. What started out as a hobby quickly grew into something I hadn’t anticipated. The feedback from those who came to train was incredible, and the demand for a good MMA club in the area was huge. Very quickly, my hobby turned into my life.
Now Strike or Submit has classes running every day and with the help of other professional coaches we are building TeamSOS into something that will always be remembered. We’ve started classes for Juniors at the weekend and have had good success at amateur competitions with our fighters only training for eight weeks. Our ‘fight family’ is growing bigger every day, and as the coach of new club, it’s hugely rewarding to see how beneficial Strike or Submit has been to those who walk through the door looking to improve their fitness, confidence, technique and ability.
Whether you want to train for fun, fitness or serious MMA competition, Strike or Submit offers a fantastic atmosphere to train in. We don’t do egos, we just do MMA.
If you want the feeling of being part of something remarkable and rewarding, come and join the gang at Strike or Submit. Be a better you, be a champion!
