About Us

Kickfit martial arts and fitness academy has been open since 1996 and continues to teach the martial way.

Located in Nottingham city centre, the martial arts academy is run by chief instructor Master Richard Hudson 6th Dan Black Belt and offers an excellent range of international martial arts and fitness tuition in large premises with two main teaching rooms, a weights room, changing rooms and shop.

Master Richard Hudson's method of instruction involves training his students in a wide variety of skills, constantly showing new ways and techniques to counter attacks.

The academy has trained a large number of champions (including world champions) and medal winners from various competitions and continues to do so.

All students are encouraged to help one another within a class and this culture allows beginners and intermediate students to train together successfully - students learn from instructors and instructors learn from students.

All classes have a grading system and students are encouraged to attain these levels on a regular basis. However, the emphasis remains to learn a wide skill base rather than sticking to the confines of a single grading at a time.

KickFit martial arts academy is recognised by:
