Choi Kwang Do Cartersville’s aim is to improve the health, productivity, fitness and quality of life of its members. CKD is a martial art based on scientific truth, rather than mysticism. We continually evolve as a martial art and exercise program with a continued commitment to incorporate science for the benefit of the practitioner and mankind. Individuals training at our academy focus on achieving optimum health and wellness while learning practical self defense techniques. Classes are taught in a friendly, family-orientated atmosphere and in a fun and easy to learn manner. The development of character and mental strength based on CKD’s principles is considered the most important overall goal in our training along with the goal of physical improvement & self defense skills.
