Our Wimbledon club has a very special place in the history of the UKKFF. It was the original martial arts school opened by Sifu Lee Paul Heron when he first began teaching across the South-West London area.
The club opened its doors in 1999 and was originally located in St John’s Church Hall, South Wimbledon. Our small but dedicated membership met there each & every week until the start of 2002, and we are proud to report that several of these original members are still with us, more than a decade further on!
When LPH began teaching the martial arts as a full-time profession instead of a part-time hobby, the class numbers rapidly expanded. Thus in May 2002 we moved the club to larger & better appointed premises at Wimbledon Leisure Centre. This well-appointed venue was the home of our Wimbledon club for over a decade, until in 2012 they decided to stop hiring their facilities to outside groups following a major refit of the venue.
Thus in June 2012 the club moved to the Old Rutlishians Rugby Club, and we have to say it’s a much nicer feeling there. Less corporate, more friendly, and a much better club atmosphere all round. So, after more than 13 years, our club in SW19 is still going strong.
