What is Area 51?

We are often asked, “What is Area 51 Academy?” It’d be really easy to say, “It’s a Martial Arts School in Bolsover.” In a lot of ways that is a good answer, but in so many ways it is not just a Martial Arts School at all. The reality is that The Area 51 Academy is much, much more.

There definitely are Martial Arts classes at Area 51. It’s probably the best dedicated Martial Arts facility in the area. There’s a matted area for normal training, complete with kick bags, shields, focus pads and everything else you can think of for running a class. There’s even gloves and other personal protective equipment to borrow, including head guards of course. Both Kick Boxing & Mixed Martial Arts sessions run at Area 51. We take children from as young as 4 years old and of course run classes for adults as well. Check out the Martial Arts page for more details.

Area 51 is also the only local facility to have a full time sprung floor, used in our Tricking sessions. Click here for more on Tricking.

Here’s a short video all about us.

The facility is also available for private hire such as children’s parties and we are always looking to use the academy to benefit the local community.  For more details on private hire please use the contact page to get on touch with us.

We can also provide private tuition if a required. Again please contact us for more details on this.
