The Benefits of ECKD
SELF DEFENCE SYSTEM SUITABLE FOR EVERYONE
You don’t have to be super fit or an athlete to learn Eltham CKD. It is a ‘reality based’ easy to learn Self Defence system that is taught in gradual ‘non competitive’ stages at your own pace.
While learning with like minded people, in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.
Eltham CKD is great for improving your cardiovascular, skeletal and muscles. The ‘natural’ movements we use in our techniques ensure no harm will come to you, unlike so many traditional martial arts !

“Don’t be a Victim -
Learn Self Defence, Get fit, AND have Fun !
In the past year there has been more recorded knife crime in London than at anytime since records began in 2009. That’s a decade ago. The figure now stands at 15,000 !
The number of people murdered this year in England and Wales has risen to 719 (at the time of writing) that’s a rise of 14% over last year. There is also a sharp increase in violent crime up by 20%.
Police recorded 5,000,000 (yes 5 million) violent offences between June 17 & 18. That’s a rise of 9%.
The number of killings are increasing steadily. “Crime Stoppers” has seen a 40% increase in reported violent crime, and are now sending at least 150,000 reports on to the police every year.
Austerity has been blamed for the unprecedented increase in violent crime, as well as severe police cuts, youth work closures, drugs, and some social media channels inciting violence.
End of BBC quote….
There have been and continue to be numerous discussions on the causes of the increasing violence affecting the UK. One thing for sure is it’s not getting solved.
There is no point relying on Governments to sort this out. While they talk and make sound bite promises people are being maimed, killed and traumatised.
It is the responsibility of each individual to learn at the very least some ‘practical’ self defence. I’m not talking about making a career out of it or even signing up for a long course. Just learning some basic techniques can save a lot of misery and hurt.
A BIG thank you to Dave Turton and his is talented SDF-
ECKD made some new martial art friends and we hope to share time and training together in the future.

Dear John..our students are from 16-
I would like to thank you for delivering such an amazing workshop yesterday. Staff and students have been looking at the pictures and discussing how fantastic both you and Chris were.
You were able to keep all students engaged and were professional and funny at the same time.

Can I say that you guys do a wonderful job. Lxxxxx has grown so much more confident and although we have not managed to squash the bullying, he has started responding rather than putting his head down and taking it, and comes home very proud of himself. It has been a massive step for him and a great worry lifted for us. We are not fully there but knowing he can defend himself more than before makes a massive difference.
You do an amazing job for people who may not have been able to stop what happens to them otherwise.
Keep it up and please do not stop.
