Changes to the Syllabus

Choi Kwang Do International is implementing a number of changes to the syllabus. The intention is to bring the focus back to improving the individual student through the mindful practice of Choi Kwang Do's basic techniques. You will have already seen some of these with more emphasis in class for front stance, foot position, body position, guard and balance.
There are also changes to how certain kicks are performed to enable better use of bio-mechanics in order to minimise the risk of injury and improve performance.
We will also be moving away from the focus on speed to instead focus on technique.
