I have been training at EKK for the past 4 ½ years, and the experience has moulded me into a much finer person.

Senpai Tim

OSU! I’ve played a lot of sport, from athletics to soccer, cricket, swimming, tennis and snowboarding. Kyokushin Karate is unlike anything else. Having spent the past 6 years training with EKK I can attest to this. You can’t and won’t become a black belt without countless hours or blood, sweat and tears. Anyone who tells […]

Since I started at EKK about 6 years ago I have learnt so much about how to protect myself in many different scenarios and am able to spread what I have learnt to other students in the EKK dojo. This is all because of how Shihan Vaviti’s is able to teach everything to everyone at […]

Senpai Brett

Back in 2009, I wanted to improve my level of fitness and thought that a two to three day exercise regime consisting of running and weight training would help me to achieve this.
