I want to join a gym/Learn MMA questions

Any questions regarding joining a gym or taking up MMA (or individual disciplines) can go here. When posting it would be helpful to tell people what part of the country you live in so they can recommend a gym.

C-MAC in Mulhuddart might be your closest location but I don't think they do double classes.

SBG Charlestown (Finglas) might be your best bet. I've seen them advertise free yoga for parents on certain days while their kids train. They have a big new facility that has a couple of sessions going on at a time.

As in adults training alongside the kids or two separate sessions running at the same time?

The thing is a lot of these MMA gyms are quite small and don't have room to run multiple sessions at once. What age is your kid? Kids/teen classes are usually in the mid-late afternoon 3pm-6pm, with adult classes being either early/mid morning and evening times.

SBG Naas Rd and SBG Tallaght are probably the only two big enough to accommodate your needs. SBG Tallaght has a separate weights/cardio area that can be used while martial arts classes are going on.

My only other suggestion is that your kid joins a martial arts gym that has a Flyfit or Been Dunne gym nearby that you can drop into for an hour.

Just started an 8 week beginners MMA course, first session tonight. Really enjoyed it. Any good videos to follow as a beginner?

SBG HQ is probably the nearest (and most expensive) one to you so. If you are driving SBG Tallaght is probably only about 20 minutes away from you as is SBG D24.

Fantom Gym in the city centre is another option.
