Choi Kwang Do was developed by Grandmaster Kwang Jo Choi between 1978 and 1987 and has proved to be the most effective martial arts system in the world. Choi Kwang Do's natural easy to learn, sequential movements maximise your body's force producing capabilities, but more importantly, they increase opportunities to enhance your health.
Choi Kwang-Do is a unique martial art based on modern scientific principles and has been developed to promote optimum health, fitness and self-defence. Choi Kwang Do's system is founded on the principles that its self defence techniques should generate maximum force, be practical & easy to learn, enhance the student's health as they practise, as well as developing mental and physical conditioning.
Choi Kwang Do is a unique programme based on modern scientific principles from human anatomy, physiology (the branch of biological sciences dealing with the functioning of organisms), psychology (the science of mental life), kinesiology (the branch of physiology that studies mechanics and anatomy in relation to human movement), neurophysiology (the branch of neuroscience that studies the physiology of the nervous system) and biomechanics (human movement science).
Choi Kwang Do is not designed for competition and does not follow the intensity of sports training. The system is meant for all, both adults and children alike, who want to learn real-life, practical self-defence skills and achieve a greater level of health and well-being. Because it's a non-contact, non-fighting, non-competitive art that stresses mental, physical, emotional and social development, Choi Kwang Do promotes non-violent resolutions to conflict, practical solutions to cardiovascular improvement, and enjoyable methods of exercise. In addition, with competition removed, students can continually develop - not against each other, but with each other.
With a progressive system from White Belt to the highest level of 9th Degree Black Belt, Choi Kwang Do always offers something new and challenging to learn, experience and enjoy.
