1st Royal Eltham Scout Hall
Forty Foot Lane (next to Metro Gas)
Tel: 07727117029
South East Freestyle Karatedo train Students for self protection and all aspects of our style for training with in the Club. Training includes defence against weapons such as knife or gun, and against single or multiple attackers.

The emphasis for Students is always that it is better to avoid or walk (or run!) away from trouble. Violence can only be a final resort and when no other option exists to prevent immediate harm to the individual or to those they care for.

Instructors teach many aspects of Martial Arts to improve an individual’s martial style and ability. These include Punching, Kicking, Blocking, Grappling, Nerve Holds, Balance and Co-ordination, Locks, Strikes, Take Downs, Leg Sweeps, etc. etc.

S.E.F Karate facilities include training halls, mats, punch bags, focus pads etc to develop greater speed, power and confidence for Students. Perhaps the greatest resource available to the students is the years of knowledge and experience that the many Black Belts in the club provide.

S.E.F Karate Black Belts and other senior grades remain approachable and friendly and will always provide an answer for queries, as well as offer practical help to assist with techniques etc.

The ‘core’ of the style taught is JIYU RYU Freestyle Karate, as founded and developed by SHIHAN John Fewins (see Biographies), but we also use different techniques that come from other discipline's to make our style more effective.

Gradings are held periodically at the club. Beginners commence as ‘white’ belts and then with sufficient training are encouraged to grade to match their achievements.
