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 !

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.
