Achieve optimum health in our fitness classes

The main reasons for becoming a student in Choi Kwang Do is to achieve optimum health, to learn practical self-defence and for personal development purposes. Within two weeks of joining a Choi Kwang Do school, students often experience a greater feeling of physical and mental well-being than they have ever experienced before. Students can test every 2 months for their next belt (from White Belt to 1st Degree Black belt).

All of Choi Kwang Do’s techniques are based on biomechanical principles

Sudden, jerky movements are not used. This allows a practitioner to not only produce maximum force and promote health, but also to decrease the chance of injury. Our integrated movements also allow elder individuals to adapt slowly. Joint and muscle strength, mobility level, joints’ range of motion, endurance and fitness can be gradually improved. Because you use your entire body in the exercises, even bones can become stronger.

Martial Arts is an ideal form of exercise at Brighton Marital Arts and Self-defence classes, The Choi Foundation, Robert Tanswell

For middle-aged and elderly individuals

And it’s an ideal activity after retirement. Anyone can enjoy the benefits of training, and even teaching, at a CKD school. We have instructors who are over 60 (at The Choi Foundation), and many students are even older (world wide). Extensive research has shown that good lifestyle habits and exercise are critical to reducing the aging process. The choices you make daily can either speed up or slow down your aging process.

All aging, including premature aging, is biological — we age according to our genetic makeup — but this process is controllable and can be greatly influenced. Environment and lifestyle habits contribute greatly to the process. That’s why some people fall apart by the time they’re 35 and others are healthy, youthful and active into their senior years!

Learn about commitment and persistence in class

Children at Choi Kwang Do learn to encourage others to grow, to support each other, to be patient, to share, to behave with decorum and to compassionately relate with, rather than compete against each other. In our protective, affirming environment, children can relax, make friends, learn, enjoy their training, and develop pride with humility. They learn to keep a clear, strong mind; they learn about commitment and persistence; they learn that achievement takes time; and they learn to stay focused until they achieve their goals. There are no losers at Choi Kwang Do.

At The Choi Foundation Martial Arts class we use our brains constantly throughout a class. Martial Arts is body training a combination of moves (punching and kicking), we call a pattern, used to defend yourself. Speed and concentration is required, which we have all learned by starting at white belt and moving through the more complex belts.

We have many exciting and enjoyable drills to develop individuals aerobically and anaerobically

Both are important: Aerobic fitness training develops stamina and endurance, which assists you in daily life. Anaerobic training develops speed, agility and explosive power, which is essential in self-defence. And the combination strengthens the heart and lungs. We also teach a complete stretching method designed to strengthen all muscles, tendons, ligaments and bones, and our patterns use natural, rhythmic, fluid, contra-lateral movements. We systematically train both sides of the body evenly, in coordination with the eyes, which allows students to stimulate and develop their brain as well as their muscles.

Choi Kwang Do martial arts is a holistic health system

Every student within Choi Kwang Do Martial Art International is focused on living a more productive, healthier and longer life. Because of that, we tailor an individual’s training to meet their own personal needs and promote better health in their life. Sports training has little to do with health — the goal is winning. Competitions overstress the body with high-intensity workouts that overtax the immune system and cause injuries. Statistics show more than 10,000,000 sports injuries are treated each year in the United States.

Secrets to losing weight and keeping it off with Martial Arts

Martial Arts is a great way to commit to excercise

Get your head in the game

Losing weight is 50 percent attitude. If you aren’t mentally, emotionally, and psychologically committed to making a change, it’s not worth starting a weight-loss program.

Exercise daily

As long as you keep moving, you will be working toward your goal. The exercise component is crucial to maintaining energy, boosting metabolism and helping you to feel better every day. Even the smallest amount of physical activity can reap big rewards. Keep moving! Continue reading

Adults gain stress relief at Martial Arts

Martial Arts is a fun and physical activity

Physical exercise helps with stress relief this is where you can forget about everything for an hour to two. Rebalance your working week.

Observe this one rule when you plan physical activities: be choosy. Sounds simple, but the impact that choice has on the way you feel about exercise is anything but. In one study, exercisers were far more likely to report feeling good – both physically and psychologically – when they chose a preferred activity.

When you’re enjoying yourself, you get totally distracted from the fact that you are even exerting yourself and doing work. Fatigue is less prevalent, and you may even exercise longer, so choose something that trips your happy trigger and you’ll be looking forward to exercise.

Healthy Lifestyle Tip: Feel Good

1. Exercise pumps up endorphins. Physical activity helps increase the production of the brain’s “feel-good” neurotransmitters, called endorphins.

2. Exercise is meditation in motion. After exercising, most of us have forgotten the day’s irritations by concentrating only on the body’s movements. Often people discover that regular exercise helps people remain calm and clear in everything that they do.

3. Exercise generally improves mood. Regular exercise can increase self-confidence and lower the symptoms associated with anxiety. Many people find they sleep better when they have exercised.

Martial Arts exercises the whole body and mind

… Exercise triggers an increase in body temperature, and the post-exercise drop in temperature may promote falling asleep. Exercise may also reduce insomnia by decreasing arousal, anxiety and depressive symptoms. Insomnia is commonly linked with elevated arousal, anxiety, and depression, and exercise has strong effects on reducing these symptoms in the general population. Finally, exercise may reduce insomnia by its effects on circadian rhythms (body clock). For people with insomnia due to the timing of their body clock, exercise may shift its timing depending upon the time exercise is performed…

Building muscles and toning your body has more than just physical benefits

Martial Arts is for everyone of all ages.

Healthy Lifestyle Tip: Can You ‘Train’ Yourself to Have More Willpower?

You can train your body, your mind… and your will power. That’s according to a study which said that with a little practice, it may be possible to strengthen and improve your self-control.

The study suggests self-control, or willpower, is like

“building a muscle.” “The more you ‘exercise’ it by working out even when you don’t feel like it, the more you’ll increase and strengthen your self-control ‘muscle’ and quite possibly improve your health,”

says lead author Tricia M. Leahey, Ph.D. Building muscle and toning your body has more than just physical benefits. It can also aid you with willpower and self-control. Being able to accomplish this every day is a great motivator. Knowing that you have done something to improve your body makes you not want to spoil it.

Learning a new skill in every class

“The road to success is always under construction” ~ Lily Tomlin

Healthy Lifestyle Tip: Mental Toughness

Positive Affirmations Prior to Exercise

Positive thoughts will increase your energy level. Telling yourself that you are out of shape and not as strong or flexible as you used to be can rob you of necessary energy. Prior to exercise, think about your unique skills and abilities. Positive thoughts create enthusiasm and excitement.

Visualise Success

One of the strategies that athletes use is visualising success before they begin competing. You can apply this same principle to your own workouts.

Replace Negative Thoughts with Positive Thoughts

The tendency is to focus on weaknesses and failures and beat yourself up for not being in better shape. Mental toughness involves consciously avoiding negative thoughts about failure during exercise, and replacing those thoughts with positive ones.

The next time you work out, reward yourself with the positive thought that you are doing it! You might notice that you are a bit stronger.
