CKD Martial Art Cartersville Owner

Hi, I’m Michael Wilson.

I KNOW HOW DIFFICULT AND CONFUSING
FINDING A MARTIAL ARTS SCHOOL CAN BE.

I remember when I was a 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 my wife and I opened our academy in 2004, we made a commitment to serving and empowering the community of Cartersville by teaching children and adults the confidence, leadership, and fitness skills that can only be achieved through martial arts.

We Share & teach The Same Values You Teach At Home.

Our programs have a strong focus on personal development. The foundations of our morals, values and core character traits are formed in our early years. For this reason, the programs at CKD Martial Art Cartersville are an essential way to enhance the growth and personal development of young students of all ages.

WHAT IS CHOI KWANG DO

Choi Kwang Do is the style of martial arts practiced by CKD Martial Art Cartersville students.

Developed and introduced by Grandmaster Kwang Jo Choi, a 9th Degree Black Belt, Choi Kwang Do (CKD) martial arts recently celebrated its 31st anniversary. Active in self-defense 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 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.
