You Will

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.

Since starting kickboxing 2 years ago, my fitness levels have increased hugely, and I've now reached my purple belt. It's a fantastic sport, and there isn't a better club to learn it with than Derbyshire Kickboxing. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming, you feel right...
