KBOX Kickboxing Academy

KBOX Academy is a relaxed, family friendly club held at Novacity, Peel Parade, Barnsley.

We teach freestyle American kickboxing with a karate style ethos and a coloured belt grading system.

We offer 'mixed' classes, where adults & children of all grades learn together, and also an adult only class. 

Our Chief Instructor is Sensei Izzie Kirk, a 4th dan female black belt with 16 years' experience- (renowned for her patience and technical knowledge), holding First Aid, Enhanced DBS clearance and Safeguarding Children certificates plus ADHD, Autism & Aspergers Awareness diploma and certificates. We also have male instructors including Mark Grosse who brings extensive competition experience and holds World titles.

KBOX began in 2009 as a subsidiary club and progressed to become an independent academy in January 2016.
