The Choong Sil Kwon Do Association (CSKDA) is dedicated to providing a positive pro-social environment in which traditional martial art values may be fostered. We believe that it is equally important to help students develop confidence, character, respect, and discipline, as it is to develop physical martial art skills. We are committed to motivate people to achieve their goals and maintain a healthy lifestyle in an exciting and challenging environment. Although we honor Martial Art traditions that go back centuries, we are dynamic and are constantly seeking new and innovative ways to enthuse and excite our students. (CSKDA) Instructors and staff have experience with children who have a variety of challenges including behavior problems, ADHD, and emotional difficulties. Parents see an increase in focus and confidence in their children, as well as improvement in their schoolwork, grades, respect, and character. All students learn self-defense and become better able to face any of life’s challenges with confidence. Students learn how to set and accomplish goals which leads to improvement in self-esteem.

General Info

The Choong Sil Kwan Do Association (CSKDA) Headquartered in Modesto, Ca., has been training high quality martial artists for years. We offer students and instructors, access to the highest quality martial arts training available.


(Traditional) TAE KWON DO (Ages 6 & UP) Tae Kwon Do is one of the most popular styles of Martial Arts, where the student learns to defend themselves using a series of blocking, striking and kicking techniques taught primarily through the use and practicing of patterns. The Choong Sil Kwan Do Association (CSKDA) practices the Chang Hon Tae Kwon Do pattern system as well as four additional Tae Kwon Do Self-Improvement patterns developed by Grandmaster Hardin of the (CTF) to complement our teaching progression.  These four additional Tae Kwon Do patterns are integrated with the philosophy that stresses goal setting, inspiration, the development of a strong work ethic and, ultimately, the achievement of one’s goals. 


MUSHIN BUJUTSU (Ages 14 and UP) Mushin Bujutsu is a street defense that uses a combination of the best techniques from many of the individual Martial Art styles. The combination of the many different Martial Art styles help make it more useful and more effective than any of the individual Martial Art specialties for actual street situations. It is a defense you can learn and remember. This system is designed to teach an individual with hands on defensive training. The classes focus on awareness, boundary setting and physical defense. 


Special Needs (Ages 7 and up) Special Needs is a Fun and Exciting Tae Kwon Do class, structured to meet the needs of each individual. We focus on the improvement of each individual’s attention span, confidence, discipline, hand and eye coordination and their overall fitness. In addition to learning the fundamentals of Tae Kwon Do the student will learn to be more responsive and will learn to better interact with other students and society.

Mr. K exemplifies what the mar...

Mr. K exemplifies what the martial arts are all about. He cares only about the student and furthering the dissemination of the martial arts. He is of the highest integrity and runs his school with discipline and the martial spirit. He truly cares about his students and helping them achieve their goals. I have studied many martial arts for the greater part of 25 years and until my training at Mr. K school, I had never found all the elements that I thought were important in a martial arts school. His students are respectful and helpful, which is a direst reflection on his influence. Mr. K is the real deal. He is a true mentor. I have since had to move aout of the area and began my search again, no other instructor has lived up to his standard and the technique that I learned from him has advanced me far ahead of even the upper belts. I owe a great debt of gratitude for his mentorship and friendship. Kelly C.



Awsome !!!

I was looking for a Self Defence course for my kids. I tried couple 3 places but this is the place my kids and myself liked. I liked how Mr. K attends / teaches all of his students. My kids had been going for alomst 3 weeks now and they have learned quite a bit. In fact I am thinking of joining the self defense course myself. I would suggest each and everyone to atleast try this place for free for a week :).




This is a great place if you want to have fun and get a great workout. It's the highlight to my bad days and makes a good day great.




Our family has been looking for some type of activity that we could all enjoy and agree on. My kids started first then after I watched them at their first testing and saw how they were able to actually defend themselves when attacked by several of the other students I just had to start. I was amaized at how effective the defense movements were. This is definetly something that everyone should get involved in.



Great So Far is Now a Blue Belt!

When I first started last year I was extremely excited about earning my first belt. Now several months later I am still just as excited to earn that next level belt. Now that I have been here a while I can give a better opinion of Mr.K and the other Instructors. There GREAT! I am currently a 4 stripe blue belt in taekwondo and a white belt in the self-defense program that Mr.K developed. Although I really enjoy taekwondo the self-defense program is extremely benificial and does seem to be something that I would really use if I were to get in a situation. I hope that anyone that was looking for a school would give this school a try.



High quality martial arts instruction

For the last 41/2 years I have received instruction at Choong Sil Kwan Do. Mr. K -the chief instructor- has great discipline and is very adept at teaching technique and making it possible for his students to perform to the best of their ability. Mr. K also has great integrity and models that for each one of his students. The atmosphere of the school is very friendly and the students enjoy seeing each other when they come in for classes. I would consider this school to have "the whole package," a great place to learn martial arts and to succeed in doing so.



Great So Far!

I just started in June 07 but so far it has been one of the best decisitions I have ever made. I love the instructors and everyone else here. The workouts are very satisfying. I just earned my Yellow belt about a month ago and what a feeling of pride when I was asked to remove my new belt from the wall. Have visited other schools before but was too scared to join. The 3 private lessons they offer for free helped me feel more comfortable when I participated in a regular class. You have got to check out this school.




Once I visited this school, I knew I was a part of school that helps you achieve your goals. The chief instructor encourages his students to reach their highest potential through hard work. You know you received your new rank based on hard work and good work ethics.




There is alot of positive decipline in this school! The Instructors are very friendly and want everyone to do their best! It's awesome if you are trying to loose weight or just to keep everything tight! I love this school! Call today for a new journey.
