About Choi Kwand Do
Choi Kwang Do ( C.K.D.) is a modern self
defence system devised by Grandmaster Choi specifically
orientated to be effective in a real confrontation. There is no
"full contact" or "semi-contact" punches or kicks in our classes
- the power of Choi Kwang Do is far too great to allow such
sparring in class. For the same reason we do not have any
competitions since "point-sparring" is also unrealistic with
regard to street self defence. Even in your first lesson you
will learn blocking and countering techniques, which will help
you if you confront danger in a real-life-situation. Korean
traditions such as showing respect, bowing to each other,
loyalty, courtesy and self-discipline are being used in class as
None of our techniques use the
"hyper-extension" or "lock-out" movements as in the traditional
martial arts styles; Grandmaster Choi found these traditional
movements to be not effective enough on the street where it
counts. Furthermore on C.K.D. Video number one (available from
our organization) you can see and hear 3 medical doctors explain
why Choi Kwang Do is superior to other martial arts styles from
a health point of view as well since lock-out movements (as seen
in Kung Fu and traditional Karate ) often causes swelling,
inflammation and other chronic illnesses to the joints .
Despite the tremendous power of Choi
Kwang Do it is safe and suitable for ALL: male, female , young
or older age. Truly a " family sport ".
Grandmaster Kwang Jo Choi
Grandmaster Choi advanced to be
the youngest Tae Kwon Do master-instructor (martial art of foot
and hand techniques) to go out into the world to spread the
teachings of Tae Kwon Do. Having seen others and himself suffer
physically from the unnatural "hyper-extension" movements of Tae
Kwon Do Grandmaster Kwang Jo Choi decided to leave his previous
organization and form Choi Kwang Do converting students and
masters from all over the world to his new modern system of
Grandmaster Choi`s nickname was "The
Flash" when in his homeland because of his technical speed ….
Now even faster and more powerful see for yourself what Dojunim
(translated: The Founder ) has created in CHOI KWANG DO!

just " about punching and kicking - this is only one aspect
of our programme to help your children develop into a
