Our Martial Arts Experience
We have decades of experience in the arts of armed & unarmed combat. For more than 22 years, the instructors of the UKKFF have studied the martial arts with an extremely critical eye, and we test our knowledge constantly to see if what we know is actually correct. We don’t teach anything that we cannot prove the value of, and we are hard to convince. We don’t mind if you are, too.
We have been around for a while. Our instructors have previously trained seriously in Karate, Judo, Ju-Jitsu, Wu-Shu-Kwan, Tai-Chi, Kickboxing, Tae-Kwon-Do, Wing Chun, WingTsun, Ving Tsun, Historical Weapons, Grappling, HMPS & Police C&R techniques, Latosa Escrima, Escrima Concepts, White Crane Kung-Fu, plus several more esoteric arts too. We are proud to hold instructor ranks and high dan grades in many of these traditional styles & systems.
It’s not just martial arts either. We also understand the human body. Our instructors are experienced in various health & fitness disciplines including Qigong, Yoga, Pilates, Alexander Technique, Kettlebells, Clubbells, Circular Strength Training and Bodyweight Training too.
However, instead of recreating other peoples versions of the past, or copying the systems of others, we have chosen to use our experience to progress & develop our own path. Plus we have strong links with others in the UK and around the world who share our vision of the martial arts.
We know our history, we know the traditions of our arts & the cultural backdrop from which they arose. We know their strengths and we are working daily on their weaknesses. We have lots to teach you, and we ourselves have still more to learn.
