  • Get bored with repetitive exercises
  • Be made to do anything you are not comfortable with
Providing the best quality kickboxing training for all ages and fitness levels in the Derbyshire area. We recognise everyone’s reasons for starting martial arts vary.

We aim to deliver a wide variety in the classes, improving fitness, self-confidence, flexibility, and realistic self-defence. Most classes concentrate on the non-contact elements of the sport, but exposure to sparring and competitions is available if desired.
