Evolution MMA offers a great new venue for kids’ parties

BY GRAEME LUND - APRIL 20, 2016

Valley Road, between the Port Elizabeth harbour and Settlers Park, is fast becoming a fun place to be. The Bridge Street building houses some great restaurants and home décor stores and, at the opposite end of the road is the beautifully-restored Tramways Building.

In between lies a group of buildings that are slowly, but steadily, moving from light industry to recreation. The highly popular Valley Market also calls this street home.

One of the brightest and most fun places to be in Valley Road is Evolution MMA. This magnificent fitness and martial arts gym has some amazing facilities, including a coffee shop that makes awesome cappuccinos.

In recent months, Evolution MMA has opened their massive training area to kids’ parties.  What makes this a great venue is that the floor is completely covered in thick foam matts that allow kids (and martial artists) to jump, fall and generally have fun without getting hurt.

Andrew Garai, the owner of Evolution MMA says, “Most of our fitness and martial arts classes are very early in the morning or in the evening and our floor space is unused during much of the day. I noticed how the kids, who do martial arts with us and the kids of the parents, who train with us, love running around the matt space.”

He adds, “It seemed like a good idea to make Evolution MMA available for kids’ parties and I am very impressed at how well this decision has worked. The parties that we have hosted have been a great success.”

The venue is ideal for all manner of kids’ parties. The area is big enough to house a jumping castle (or two or three) and if your kids are looking for a themed party such as a “Ninja Party” then this can be facilitated easily.

Moms and dads can relax in the coffee shop, which is also licensed, while the kids have their fun in the safe playing area.

Andrew and his team can plan, facilitate and cater for the party too. All you need to do is arrive with the kids.
