Choi Kwang Do was developed by Grandmaster Kwang Jo Choi between 1978 and 1987. Now in his 70’s, GM Choi’s physicality is testimony to his art. He has retained the agility, strength and mental vitality of someone a fraction of his age.
The Choi Kwang Do system uses natural, easy-to-learn, sequential movements maximize your body’s force-producing capabilities, to be used as a practical and effective means of last line protection against a physical assault. However, for most people, avoidance of confrontational disputes leads to a more peaceful existence. Hence, the larger part of Choi Kwang Do training is there to enhance your physical and mental wellbeing. Developing confidence to handle daily challenges and building a belief of positive ‘can-do’ attitudes.
Choi Kwang Do is not designed for competition and does not have the intensity of sports training. The system is meant for the average individual who wants to learn real-life, practical self-defence skills and achieve a greater level of health and well-being, not people solely interested in winning trophies.
With competition removed, students can continually develop not against each other, but with each other. With a progressive system from White belt to highest level of Black belt, Choi Kwang Do always offers you something new and challenging to learn, experience and enjoy.
Our training is based on individual’s needs, capabilities, skill levels and age. we also welcome those with limitations. Everyone is welcome at Choi Kwang Do
Our school motto, Pil Seung, translates as “Certain Victory”, but not in an aggressive manner and not always in respect to outside forces. It means we never give in, unless it’s the right thing to do, we never give up until we achieve victory and we never allow our spirit to break. The Pil Seung attitude allows us to overcome any obstacle to achieve our goals.
