What is Choi Kwang Do?

Posted: April 10, 2019

Choi Kwang Do differs from other forms of martial arts. Choi Kwang Do is a noncontact, nonfighting and noncompetitive art that focuses more on mental, physical, emotional and social development. Developed by Grandmaster Kwang Jo Choi between 1978 and 1987, Choi Kwang Do has proved to be one of the most effective martial arts systems in the world.

Choi Kwang Do’s natural and easy-to-learn movements maximize your body’s force producing capabilities, but more importantly, they increase chances to enhance your health. With competition sports, the focus stays on winning. In the United States alone, 10 million sports-related injuries are treated each year. All of Choi Kwang Do’s techniques are based on biomechanical principles sudden, jerky movements are not allowed. This permits the student to not only promote their health by using maximum force, but also decreases the chance of injury.

Choi Kwang Do promotes nonviolent resolutions to conflict, practical solutions to cardiovascular improvement and enjoyable methods to exercise. In addition, with competition removed, students can continually develop – not against each other, but with each other. With a gradual system that allows students to learn from white belt to black belt, Choi Kwang Do always offers you something new and challenging to learn, experience and enjoy.

Knowing is half the battle!

Posted: October 13, 2018

A majority of bad situations can be avoided if we just pay attention to our surroundings. If we are alert and paying attention when we are in public places, we can see a threat and avoid it. Knowing what is going on around you and paying attention to who is around will keep you safe. You can walk down the street listen to you iPhone, just have one earbud instead of both. If you can't hear people coming up behind you, or you are distracted by some good beats, you put yourself at a disadvantage.
