About us

Dragon Freestyle Kickboxing (DFK) started in January 1998 in Mansfield.
Since then DFK has gone from strength to strength with busy classes in both Nottingham and Mansfield.

We cater for all ability levels, from complete beginner to black belt and beyond.
Classes are suitable for those who just want to get fitter, learn a new sport and meet new people.
We also attend many tournaments throughout the year, so those who are more serious about the sport who want to compete at anything from a local competition to a world championships, the opportunities are here for you.
Whatever you are looking to achieve from your training, I am sure we can help you.
