FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

All student wear a Choi Kwang Do uniform – Do-Bok. We also sell t-shirts to wear to class in place of the do-bok jacket, but full uniform must be worn to gradings and official events. Similarly, students must wear their belt to class.

Uniforms are provided as part of our sign-up package and instructors will teach you how to fasten your belt properly.

It is important that student’s uniform is kept clean and tidy in order to show the appropriate level of respect in class.

No – Choi Kwang Do is progressive in learning and the required level of fitness and flexibility will come as you train. Our training is based on individual needs, capabilities , skill level and age.

 

As Choi Kwang do is based on natural, sequential movements, no excess strain is placed on joints and so it can actually work well as part of a rehabilitation programme. As long as instructors are aware of any injuries in advance, we can always adapt or tailor our drills to suit your specific needs.

 

We recommend that students attend twice a week in order to make good progression and to help develop muscle memory. However, we do also offer a once a week option for children but, more specifically, adults who want to train but find it difficult to fit two classes into their weekly schedule.

 

As well as developing creative skills we also aim to give our students important life skills. As with any activity students will find some elements more engaging than others. However, we feel that it is important that children and young people develop the ability to persevere even when they find aspects challenging.   This ability to self-motivate will help students develop in areas that they may not have previously explored and will help them broaden their horizons in all areas of their life, no matter how challenged they feel. Alongside our performance and self-presentation skills we also aim to develop in our students:

Perseverance
Self-Motivation
Commitment and Dedication
Resilience

Absolutely not – Choi Kwang Do promotes non-violent resolutions to conflict. Children are adults are taught to recognise and avoid potentially dangerous situations primarily and only to use their martial arts’ skills if there is no other option. This is even something which is said in the promise and pledge at the beginning and end of every class and which is re-enforced regularly during our pre and post training mat chats.
