I started my martial arts trai...

I started my martial arts training at the age of ten in New York at a small Tae Kwon Do school. My TKD training was elevated to another level when I moved to Florida in 1990. Throughout the 90's I extensively trained and competed at local, state, and national levels. I earned my Ee Dan in 1995 and was a head instructor of a school of 150+ students.

TKD, being a full contact sport with a lot of locking and jarring movements, is very physically taxing on the body. I had experienced and witnessed many horrible injuries. At the age of seventeen instead of attending prom, I was having knee surgery to repair an injury which occurred while training. Now at the age of 35, I continue to have pain in my knee and shins from the many years of abuse.

As a adolescent and young adult I truly loved TKD. It wasn't until my first child was six years old that I started seeing that TKD was not something I wanted for my daughter or any child for that matter. In the past, I had encouraged my students to "Knock-out" their opponent. Now as a parent I couldn't fathom any child participating in such a thing. That's when I stopped training and teaching altogether.

I moved to Georgia where my family continued to grow. When I was pregnant with my fourth child I decided that I wanted my children to experience the joy that martial arts brought to my life without all the physical abuse that came along with it. That's when I came across my local Catersville, Choi Kwang Do.

At first I fell into the stereo typical role of comparing why TKD was far more superior to CKD. Then I noticed how my children were flourishing physically, mentally, and their confidence grew. Movements were much more fluid. They weren't forced to stretch their bodies into unnatural positions. They were learning proper body mechanics, exercises to avoid injury, and the most effective striking techniques.

My two oldest children have been training in CKD for 2 1/2 years and my 5 year old has been training for over a year (starting as a Tiny Tiger at age 3). All the while I was sitting on the sidelines watching, encouraging, and secretly wanting to join because I truly love martial arts. So in March I decided that I would regret missing the upcoming 25th anniversary seminar and finally joined CKD. It's been a blast. I love training and encouraging others. CKD isn't just another martial art. CKD is a family, a support system, a lifestyle. I look forward to growing and learning the art of CKD and hopefully will surpass the level I attained in TKD.

This is the largest and cleanest martial art school I have ever been in. When you walk in its bright, smells clean and the staff is very nice and helpfull. This school also has many instructors where most others only have one. I really enjoy the classes and what is being taught at Choi Kwang Do, it has been a very possitive experiance for myself and my family. If you are unsure if Choi Kwang Do is for you just visit one of the schools and ask them about their principals and pledge, once you see what they are about I am sure you will love it also!
