Derek Redmond takes on the world of kickboxing

Derek Redmond takes on the world of kickboxing

He’s certainly not afraid of a challenge, and now Derek Redmond is trying his hand at something new.

Olympic Spirit: Derek Redmond finished second overall in his first ever kickboxing tournament.

Derek and his wife Maria recently joined a kickboxing gym in a bid to find a fun new way of staying in shape.

The couple went along to the Pro Martial Arts Gym in Northampton and were instantly hooked.

And it seems Derek’s fighting spirit is as strong as it ever was – because after just five weeks of training his trainer felt the star was ready for his first ever fight.

“It was simply a bit of fun for Maria and I as I tend to get bored easily, and I was looking for a new challenge to keep me in shape,” he explained.

“I really took to it, but I was quite surprised when my trainer suggested I was ready for my first fight.

“As you can imagine, the chance to do anything competitive was just too much for me to pass up so I entered the ISKA British Championships and ended up finishing second in the final, which was fantastic.

“I’m really enjoying the kickboxing – it’s something new and fun and I’ve got a few more exciting things coming up in the near future.” 

Stay tuned for more news on Derek’s kickboxing adventures in the coming weeks!
