Choi Kwang Do Martial Art International’s aim is  to improve the health, productivity, fitness and  quality of life of its members. CKD is a martial art  based on scientific truth, rather than mysticism.  We continually evolve as a martial art and  exercise program with a continued commitment  to incorporate science for the benefit of the  practitioner and mankind. Individuals training at  our academy focus on achieving optimum health  and wellness while learning practical self  defense techniques. Classes are taught in a  friendly, family-orientated atmosphere and in a  fun and easy to learn manner. The development  of character and mental strength based on CKD’s  principles is considered the most important  overall goal in our training along with the goal of  physical improvment & self defense skills.
