Choi Kwang Do of North Florida

Alzheimer’s and Exercise

Posted: April 10, 2019

As mentioned in previous articles we have written here, exercise, such as practicing Choi Kwang Do, can reduce the effects on aging on the brain.

When exercising, both the left and right side of the brain are used, enabling them to coordinate and sharpen. When exercising your brain, age is not a concern, according to neuroanatomist Dr. Marian Diamond, professor of biology at the University of California-Berkeley.

Diamond said that the process of learning, at any stage of life, stimulates nerve cells to form dendrites, linking knowledge and experience and forming what she calls the “hardware” of intelligence.

De-escalation and Conflict Resolution

Posted: April 10, 2019

As Choi Kwang Do is a non-contact sport, our practice stresses there are alternate options to violence or contact when resolving conflict. Learning how to de-escalate conflicts in an effective manner is a skill that can not only protect you in personal positions, but bystanders in by-chance situations as well.

Anticipating potential conflict is important for preparedness. Watch for the variety of verbal and non-verbal cues that can warn when a conflict is going to arise.

These include:


Back to School: Choi Kwang Do & Your Student

Posted: April 10, 2019

As students return to school this fall, it’s important to help them hone their energy toward productive tasks. Choi Kwang Do is not only beneficial to your student’s health, but can help them learn discipline, boost their metabolism, improve concentration and better their attitude.

Choi Kwang Do’s movements require balance and coordination. These movements have been designed specifically to stimulate the production of neurotrophins –natural substances that stimulate the growth of nerve cells and increase the number of neural connections in the brain.

Unlike traditional martial arts, activities or sports that employ homo-lateral movements (using one side of the body), which can be harmful to the body and stressful to the brain, CKD’s movements are cross-lateral (uses both sides of the body) like a baby’s crawl.
