Choi Kwang Do of North Florida Owner

Hi, I’m Master James Taylor.


I remember when I was child, feeling uncertainty about beginning martial arts. I wondered if I had what it took to succeed and I wasn’t the most athletic or confident child - quite the opposite. Little did I know that beginning my martial arts journey would be one of the most profound experiences of my life!

When I opened my school in 2005, I made a commitment to serving and empowering the community of High Springs by teaching children and adults the confidence, leadership and fitness skills that can only be achieved through martial arts.

Choi Kwang Do is the style of martial arts practiced by Choi Kwang Do of North Florida students. Choi Kwang Do is considered to be the most effective martial arts system in the world. It uses natural, easy-to-learn, sequential movements that will enhance your health as you learn self-defense. It uses sequential movement to transfer natural energy from one body segment and allows muscle groups to work intricately together to produce the most effective and powerful movements.

It is a non-violent, no contact martial art that promotes cardiovascular health and practical self-defense skills. The journey from White Belt to Black Belt is one of incremental learning and skill development, that students of any age and fitness level can embark on.
