It is official that in 2019, Tokyo will enjoy a UFC training gym. Set to open 20 franchise locations in the country, the Ultimate Fighting Championship holds that "the overall passion for sports, entertainment, and fitness is strong in Japan."
UFC will use this opportunity to expand its TRAIN DIFFERENT® philosophy and engage in a whole new market. The UFC training facility will give members access to "full-range of fitness classes," MMA and performance-based training. These features will be made available both in private and in groups, in order to cater to personal preference. In addition, the UFC training gym will accommodate special programs for youth athletes. Moreover, each of the available classes is inspired by "training regimens of internationally acclaimed UFC athletes."
