CKD Martial Art & Self Defense
Developed and introduced by Grandmaster Kwang Jo Choi, a 9th Degree Black Belt, Choi Kwang Do (CKD) martial arts recently celebrated its 22nd anniversary. Active in self-defence and health related research since the age of 12, Grandmaster Choi oversees a network of more than 300 schools worldwide from his headquarters in Atlanta. Choi Kwang Do's training methods and concepts are unique in the fitness industry. In CKD personal development, rather than sports competition, is paramount. Living in today's world is highly stressful because society is plagued with a fear of personal violence amplified in the media. Too often the available alternatives to stress and peer pressure are negative coping mechanisms such as drug use and drinking. Combined, these factors decrease the ability to learn, be creative, and reach our full potential as a human being. Enrolling in a program such as CKD counters these harmful trends of stress and violence. Regardless of age, participants immediately discover that Choi Kwang Do movements profoundly improve health and stress management. The CKD system is designed for prevention and healing of adult disease also known as modern disease. These degenerative diseases include diabetes, heart and circulatory problems, arthritis, osteoporosis, and obesity. The Choi Kwang Do system of training solves the root causes of these medical conditions. Exercise is known as the most important element for preventative health. However, often times exercise is practiced incorrectly, which actually leads to poorer health. The CKD system applies modern science and technology to promote optimum health and fitness as well as longevity. The CKD integrated movement prevents deterioration of brain cells and allows for cognitive thinking and memory to improve. Tired, feeling old? This is actually a thinking process accepted in our modern society. If you are physically fit, you will automatically feel mentally fit too! Because of regular CKD training, Grandmaster Choi feels stronger now (at age 68) than when he was in his twenties or thirties! As a self defense system, Choi Kwang Do also utilizes practical movements and equipment training to enhance inner confidence and peace of mind. All this is taught in a non-competitive environment by instructors who care about their students. In Choi Kwang Do classes you get all the benefits of yoga, kickboxing and other popular activities combined in a safe, easy to learn way. Not only is Choi Kwang Do designed to be easy on your joints, ligaments and tendons its also allot of fun! Choi Kwang Do teaches students to reduce the effects of stress. Strategies found only at Choi Kwang Do include learning to use more exercise, particularly integrated movement requiring balance and coordination that assists nervous system development and function. Physical movement from earliest infancy through adulthood plays a vital role in the creation of nerve cell networks that are actually the essence of learning. Choi Kwang Do is a highly refined and scientific martial arts form, distinctively different from all classical martial arts in concept and movement. It should not be put into the same category with many of hundreds of sub-styles of existing martial arts systems. To take advantage of our current special offers and to schedule a first lesson for yourself, your child or your family, please contact us or one of our many international locations.
