Welcome to Derbyshire Kickboxing

The first steps are often the hardest to take, but are the most rewarding. At Derbyshire Kickboxing we strive to provide the best instruction around where:

You Will

  • Practice in a safe and welcoming environment
  • Be taught by a fully qualified black belt instructor
  • Learn realistic self defense
  • Meet like minded people
  • Have full support and encouragement from the coaching team
  • Improve flexibility and general fitness
You Will Not

  • Be put at risk
  • Be forced to fight (ever!)
  • Be singled out from the rest of the group
  • Do the same class twice
  • 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.
