What Makes VT1 MMA Academy Different?


All of our programs are instructed by experts and it is a requirement that they continue ongoing learning and training themselves. Almost all of the coaches are active or retired competitors that have competed at an international level.

We believe that the students of our Academy always deserve the best.  

You’ll also notice when you walk into our Academy that not only is it CLEAN, but it is SAFE, FRIENDLY and there are always a lot of SMILES.

 The key to success in learning martial arts and self-defence is simply showing up regularly and having a good attitude. Our Coaches always make sure the classes are FUN, INTERESTING and ENGAGING. 

VT1 Mixed Martial Arts Academy is the biggest and best training facility in Australia. Our friendly and welcoming coaches are National, International and World Champions and know the most effective methods to help you reach your goals.

A couple of our secrets include:

  1. Offering our members the best range of martial arts.
  2. Passionate, Professional and Expert trainers and instructors in all of our classes.
  3. The VT1 Culture: The positive atmosphere and culture at the Academy. Our classes are run professionally and are always fun, friendly and motivating. If our students enjoy coming to class then reaching their goals is assured – 90% of success is turning up!

On top of this the Academy has programs specifically designed for Women, Children, Teens and Adults. You can train for fun and fitness or join one of the most successful competition teams in Australia for Brazilian Jiu JitsuMuay Thai and MMA.


The History of VT1 Mixed Martial Arts Academy

Two brothers opened VT1 MMA Academy in 2000 with the goal of creating the best centre for Martial Arts training in Australia. Today they have achieved that goal.

In a relatively short time Dylan and Liam Resenkov have taken the Academy from relatively humble beginnings to the premier Martial Arts Academy in Australia. This is a result of:

  • A passion for martial arts.
  • Travelling and training around the world.
  • Studying with World Champions, UFC fighters and coaches.
  • Understanding the aims of individual students.
