Meet Keywan Abdi. Keywan Abdi

Keywan is from Iran and has been a wrestler for more than 20 years. In Iran, wrestling is a hugely popular sport, even more popular than football.

Competing in England he won international gold in the heavyweight category in 2001 and more recently in 2009 he won gold in a National Grecco Roman wrestling competition fighting at 96Kg.Keywan has trained and fought with some of the best wrestlers in the world and is a valuable asset to the team here at Northern Kings.





Meet Conrad Freese.

Conrad has been studying yoga for 7 years, starting as an Ashtanga practitioner and studying with Yogis like Brian Cooper and Nancy Gilgoff, but more recently with Ana Forrest (creatrix of Forrest Yoga) and Brian Campbell (Forrest Yoga Guardian).

His journey began working using creative therapies with children on the Intensive Care Unit in the Leeds teaching hospitals. Since then further experiences working in hospitals, art projects, military care homes, sheltered living schemes and rehabilitation facilities have gradually led him away from more traditional talking therapies to a deep interest in working to heal the body in a more primal and organic way integrating yoga, bodywork, energy work and meditation to work with each individual’s body and mind holistically.




Let us introduce Pete Tiarks who will be taking the MMA classes.

He was Cage Rage Champion in 2003 and 2004 and has won Muay Thai fights at the prestigious Lumpinee Stadium in Thailand. He is also a BJJ Purple belt with an outstanding MMA and Muay Thai professional record.

About Us


MMA in Newcastle Upon Tyne and the North East generally has grown massively over the last few years and coupled with its boxing heritage it’s truly astounding that the regions capitol city has been without a dedicated Martial Arts and Boxing store for so long. Newcastle was without an MMA store until 2011 when FIGHT STORE Newcastle opened. Since Then we have been a part of the community with the staff and owners all having been involved for many years in the sports we work for. The MMAnewcastle website was originally built purely because of the amount of inquires we received daily about where people could train. We offer our directory and events listing free to the North East Martial Arts and Boxing community and will continue to work to promote the sports we love in our region
