Choi Kwang Do is a holistic Martial Art which caters for the complete development of the individual – mentally, physically, socially and emotionally.
The founder of Choi Kwang Do is Grandmaster Kwang Jo Choi, he is a 9th Dan Black Belt and was one of the pioneering Masters of Tae Kwon Do. However, by the age of 30 Grandmaster Choi body was badly injured due to the harsh rigid lock-out movements and detrimental health practices that he taught in Tae Kwon Do.
Choi Kwang Do is based on modern scientific principles from human anatomy, physiology (the branch of the biological sciences dealing with the functioning of organisms), psychology (the science of mental life), kinesiology (the branch of physiology that studies mechanics and anatomy in relation to human movement), neurophysiology (the branch of neuroscience that studies the physiology of the nervous system) and biomechanics (human movement science). The combination of modern day science coupled with the development of Character Education is what makes Choi Kwang Do a highly effective practice for self-transformation.
Choi Kwang Do uses natural body movements and its easy-to-learn sequential movements maximize the body’s force-producing capabilities, which not only makes it an extremely effective form of self defence but also and more importantly enhances your health.
