When we think of martial arts invariably the words karate, muy thai, judo or perhaps even taekwondo spring to mind. But have you heard of Choi Kwang Do? If not, you’re bound to hear about it soon enough, as it is now the fastest growing martial art globally.
Choi Kwang Do (CKD) has arrived in Mallorca thanks to Helen Dobinson Metcalfe. Now training for her third Dan and trained by renowned Senior Masters from the international faculty, you can be assured you are learning from the best.
“At Choi Kwang Do Mallorca we live fitness and martial arts. Our inspiration comes daily from watching how our students develop both physically and mentally, helping them reach their true potential and goals.” – Helen
Exercise that supports the body
Choi Kwang Do is a martial art for present day, and backed by science. A lot of the traditional martial arts involve various repeated techniques, and the locking out of joints which is not ideal for the body. Conversely CKD has been developed with the body’s natural biomechanical movement in mind. The movements not only generate maximum power, but also are designed in such a way to protect our joints and assist with overall optimum health.
