Choi Kwang Do effective Martial Art
The Tipson Choi Kwang Do Academy practices and promotes Choi Kwang Do which was developed by Grandmaster Kwang Jo Choi between 1978 and 1987 and has proved to be one of the most effective martial arts system in the world.
Choi Kwang Do is based on the modern scientific principles of human anatomy, physiology (the branch of 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).
Choi Kwang Do practiced by the academy is not designed for competition and does not follow the intensity of sports training. This means its a more accessible form of Martial Art and is meant for all, both adults and children alike, who want to learn real-life, practical self-defence skills and achieve a greater level of health and well-being.
It's a non-contact, non-fighting, non-competitive art that stresses mental, physical, emotional and social development. and an enjoyable methods of exercise.
