EIGHT reasons to choose Eltham
(1) Individuals training
in Eltham CKD, focus on achieving optimum health by training
at a moderate level of intensity, rather than training at a high
intensity for a competition.
CKD classes are taught in a friendly, family-orientated atmosphere,
and in a fun and easy to learn manner. The development of character
and mental strength is considered the most important overall goal
in CKD training along with the attainment of practical and 'effective'
self defence techniques.
CKD is a family run martial art school. John Edwards is the
Head instructor who runs the school with his wife Cathy who is also
a Black belt Instructor. Their daughter Gillian and her husband
Jamie are also Instructor's and hold black belt qualifications.
This makes for a good humoured family atmosphere.
students are all ages, backgrounds, and fitness levels. However
when learning Eltham CKD those things all become irrelevant.
Head Instructor John Edwards uses his experience in studying many
martial arts and self defence systems, and trains regularly with
top quality industry professionals to teach self-defence techniques
that focus on 'real life' situations. Thereby concentrating on what
really works in the street, rather than outdated and impractical
forms of ancient martial arts.
CKD is unique because we respect that not everyone is young,
supple and fit so training sessions are geared towards what is practical
for individual students.

will work !
CKD was not designed for competition and therefore does not
follow the intensity of sports training. The system is meant for
all individuals who want to learn real-life, practical
self-defence skills, and achieve a greater level of health
