Choi Kwang 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 well.

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 ".

About 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 self-defence.

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!
