Self-defence techniques in Martial Arts classes

Fitness classes for all at Brighton Marital Arts and Self-defence classes, The Choi Foundation, Robert Tanswell

Fitness that is practical and easy to learn

The Choi Kwang Do system is based on the principles that its self-defence techniques should:

Choi Kwang Do defence drill’s

  • Generate maximum force
  • Be practical and easy to learn
  • Enhance the individual’s health as they practice
  • Develop reflexes and ability to respond against threats
  • Develop mental as well as physical conditioning

Although we teach pragmatic, efficient self-defence techniques, students learn to focus first on how to avoid physical confrontation by calming an attacker if possible.

Build your confidence at Martial Arts Self-defence

      Comments Off on Build your confidence at Martial Arts Self-defence

Fitness classes for all at Brighton Marital Arts and Self-defence classes, The Choi Foundation, Robert Tanswell

We teach pragmatic, efficient self-defence techniques

Students learn to focus first on how to avoid physical confrontation by calming an attacker if possible. Since Choi Kwang Do is a noble art, we prefer forgiveness and compassion to kicking and punching. If we can’t avoid a defence situation, we remain humble before responding, and never telegraph that we know martial arts by putting our hands up. We try to resolve the situation without striking a blow. If, however, we must protect ourselves, we know how to take sudden, confident action with our concealed Choi Kwang Do human weapons.

Our Martial Arts classes give you more than fitness

Successful aging requires ongoing physical exercise and maintenance. Research and statistics now view aging in general as lifestyle related. Physical and mental deterioration is dependent on lifestyle and environmental influences: primarily improper diet and lack of exercise. With better lifestyle habits, including exercise, people can avoid many health problems.

Martial Arts provides the proper amount and intensity of exercise

The development of strong, healthy bones begins in early childhood, but the maintenance of a healthy skeleton takes lifelong commitment and effort. While low bone density after menopause is a common problem with women today, age-related thinning and porosity of bones is very common in men and women. Because the main reason for early bone weakness and degeneration is lack of use, activity and exercise, Choi Kwang Do SM can help by providing the proper amount and intensity of exercise! It can also help preserve your joint structure because joint motions are never isolated to one plane in a CKD technique. Even the person holding the air shield that is being hit will develop endurance and overall conditioning, including bone and muscle strength.

Martial Art techniques use sequential movement

Fitness classes for all at Brighton Marital Arts and Self-defence classes, The Choi Foundation, Robert Tanswell

Fitness classes for all at Brighton Marital Arts and Self-defence classes, The Choi Foundation, Robert Tanswell

Maximum force decreased chance of injury

It is imperative that we use modern advances in science for self-defence, human development, and human health. By embracing science, we can train our bodies more productively, more efficiently, and more healthfully. All Choi Kwang Do techniques use sequential movement, which means that energy transfers naturally from one body segment to the next. This results in maximum force production, decreased chance of injury, and energy efficiency.

All Choi Kwang Do patterns, speed drills, and target drills use sequential movements that result in fluid and connected movements. This is ideal for low to high intensity exercise.

By creating oxygen debt through high intensity workouts, the lung and heart’s reserve capacity increases. This is also a more time-efficient and effective way to burn fat and get fit when compared to aerobic exercise.

We downplay competition At The Choi Foundation

Young children can’t distinguish between winning / losing in a competition and winning / losing in real life. When children lose in a contest, they often feel like they have lost in life as well. Since the child is still forming his or her sense of self, this belief is negative reinforcement and detrimental to their growth. Even in school, children compete against each other for high grades and praise, and much of the curriculum involves abstract analytical skills and facts. At Choi Kwang Do, we understand that learning comes not only from the intellect, but also from interactions with other people and knowing that you really can achieve your goals.

Anaerobic training both sides of your body

Where are two types of muscle fibres that are used in Choi Kwang Do. Slow-twitch (Type I) muscle fibres are used when performing patterns with low or medium intensity, while fast-twitch (Type II) muscle fibres are used for more intense short bursts of anaerobic training such as speed drills and target attack drills. Choi Kwang Do patterns and speed drills utilize both sides of the body equally so that there is balanced development.

Choi Kwang Do is not designed for competition

And does not have the intensity of sports training. The system is meant for the average individual who wants to learn real-life, practical self-defence skills and achieve a greater level of health and well-being, not people solely interested in winning trophies. Because it’s a noncontact, nonfighting, non-competitive art that stresses mental, physical, emotional and social development, Choi Kwang Do promotes nonviolent resolutions to conflict, practical solutions to cardiovascular improvement, and enjoyable methods of exercise. In addition, with competition removed, students can continually develop — not against each other, but with each other. With a progressive system from White belt to highest level of Black belt, Choi Kwang Do always offers you something new and challenging to learn, experience and enjoy.

Each belt is a short-term goal of about 3 months

Choi Kwang Do also teaches patience, and our students are rewarded for their patience with our progressive belt system. We start at White belt and go all the way up to high Black belt, offering children something to aim for. As they progress in rank, they gain more confidence because they learn higher skills and techniques. Each belt is a short-term goal, which motivates and positively reinforces further achievement. When students reach their goal, we reward them with their new belt and celebrate in a ceremony with all the other students and the instructors. Students feel very special when they receive their belt in this way. This goal-orientated system helps them gain a sense of accomplishment as they progress through the system.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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

An easy way to fall in love with activity

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.

Increase your brain feel-good with Martial Art fitness

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.
