CKF in the Community
As well as teaching Kids, Youth and Adults classes throughout the week, Cambridge Kung Fu is also involved in lots of other projects throughout Cambridge. We are very lucky to have strong relationships with several local schools, community groups and charities as well as the Sports Development Service at the City Council. As a not-for-profit, social enterprise, it is important to us that we continue to grow and develop these relationships and we are proud to be able get involved in projects that help not only the Cambridge Kung Fu community but the wider Cambridge community as well.

Over the past few years Cambridge Kung Fu have provided a number of free self defence workshops for Scout groups in and around Cambridge. And we would like to do even more, not just for Scouts, but for any local Community Groups.
