Martial art for Kids - Choi Kwang Do
The first 2 classes free to see if it is something they want to continue.
Children just love being active, they are sponges and learn very quickly. This is when they need nurturing and support, Choi Kwang Do, not only helps them stay fit and healthy as well as enabling them to defend themselves it also instills a sense of discipline that transcends into their normal lives at school and at home.
As part of the teaching within CKD, we aim to get the children to understand when to play and when not to and learn to focus, which helps them in their studies as well as any extracurricular activities they may get involved with. We encourage development with fun which allows them to learn whilst enjoying themselves.
Studies that are ongoing have shown that CKD exercises enhance children’s coordination, concentration, and focus and are helping in their academic studies and confidence.
At the family classes, we mix adult and children training together which also builds up the ability for children to work with and communicate with adults.
We have a formal start to each lesson where we recite the junior promise below and do “Mook Yum” silent sitting where we close our eyes and do a breathing exercise for 1 minute, great practice for the children.
Choi Kwang Do (CKD) can enhance your child’s powers of concentration, self-control, discipline, and self-esteem. Children’s Choi Kwang Do is a healthy, fun workout that promotes a winning but disciplined attitude, which encourages better behaviour at home and at school whilst promoting the mental strength to undertake life’s challenges.
If you consider for a moment our Junior Promise…………
To always do my best and never give up
To obey my parents and teachers
To tell the truth and honour my word
To always be polite
To never misuse what I learn in class
