The Benefits of Eltham CKD

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 !

I am delighted to say we had a full house, lots of laughs and some really great characters practicing self defence. Many for the very first time.

A BIG thank you to Dave Turton and his is talented SDF-ASMAA instructors Kelly and Richard for travelling down for this ‘special’ workshop. As usual Dave was on top form and everyone enjoyed his humour and unrivalled knowledge. Thank you to all who attended for sending text’s and emails full of praise for this workshop, some of whom travelled from as far as the South Coast to attend.

ECKD made some new martial art friends and we hope to share time and training together in the future.

THE ‘Self Defence’ workshop we won’t forget !

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.

Kindest regards
