Unit1 Martial Arts Fitness was started by Dave Cartawick, 5th Dan and founder of the British Karate and Kickboxing Association (BKKA). Based in a large, purpose-built premises near to Chesterfield town centre, Unit 1 has gone from strength to strength over the past few years and now offers a wide range of martial arts and fitness classes throughout the week and across the weekend.
Unit 1's approach to learning martial arts is simple: we welcome everyone, whatever your goals or level of fitness. Most of our coaches walked through the doors of Unit 1 as beginners themselves and know what it is like to take that first step, so you will always be welcomed with a friendly smile and encouraged to develop at your own pace.
As a member of Unit 1, you will be taught by fully qualified and experienced coaches who will aim to develop your confidence, flexibility and fitness through disciplined training under controlled and supervised conditions.
