A TOWN centre MMA gym is to be shown in a 'fly-on-the-wall' documentary with part one being aired today (Sunday).

The Hamma Academy of Mixed Martial Arts, based on North Road, is to be featured in the documentary.

The crew, commissioned by Sky under the banner of UCLan TV, spent three full days to capture the everyday activity of the gym.

Under head instructor, Sean Martin, from Huyton, the gym has enjoyed great competition success across all age groups by both male and female fighters.

Adam Robson, from the filming crew, said: "With the wealth of talent in this gym and the amount of activity, it is a no-brainer to come here to cover Sean's gym.

"It is a special place, because the fighters that come here stay here and it's because they do more than just get them to hit pads.

"And Sean is such a huge character, he is perfect for TV."

Sean added: "It'll be a fly-on-the-wall show about the gym and they are also trying to get it commissioned for Channel 5.

"They came to me with the idea and said they'd love to do the documentary."

The two-part documentary will be shown over two Sundays, on February 17 at 10pm on Sky Sports Front Runner Channel 431 and Freesat Channel 250 and on Sunday 24 at the same time.
