What is choi kwang do

Choi Kwang Do (CKD) is scientifically designed martial art which essentially focuses on the areas of Fitness, wellness and Self Defense. It is founded by Grandmaster Kwang Jo Choi in 1987 and has proved to be the most effective martial art system in the world of self defense and wellness. CKD provides a safe and healthy environment for students that help them to grow physically as well as mentally. CKD movements are based on modern scientific principles including Kinesiology, psychology and biomechanics. CKD movements are non jerky or joint-locking. To reduce body stress and injury, CKD uses natural bilateral movements and fluid motions to generate optimum force while placing less pressure on the joints. By creating oxygen debt through high intensity workouts, the lung and heart’s reserve capacity increases. In addition, CKD incorporates breathing and stretching exercises. CKD’s Natural, easy to learn, sequential movements maximize body’s force producing capabilities but more prominently they increase opportunities to enhance overall health.

Choi Kwang Do is an efficient, highly effective Modern Martial Art. The entire system is designed to be practical for self defense in that it moves with the way our body naturally moves, developing tremendous power and strength quickly.
