Training

Upcoming changes & closures:

  • None upcoming.

At Dropkixx we pride ourselves on being Europe’s number one professional wrestling academy. There are no hidden membership fees and we welcome all levels of experience.

The head trainer Jon Ritchie is a former three-time British Heavyweight champion with more than thirty years of experience inside the ring. He, along with coaches Stephen Docherty, Mark Hendry and Dan Eels, is always on hand to assist students.

We welcome family members to watch, and to even participate in the day’s session.

Wrestling is a sport where the more you put in, the more you will get out of it. While you do not have to exclusively train with us, it is the best way to get onto our shows. Trainees who repeatedly miss training or train elsewhere instead of Dropkixx will be removed from our shows.

The Sunday session starts at 12:00 and runs until 15:30 and Wednesday's (19:00-21:30) - any changes in relation to times or if a session isn’t happening (such as the Christmas break, etc.) will be communicated through the website or at training.
