I began Choi Kwang Do in September 2011 after 6 weeks of watching my 7yr old son (now 8) training & enjoying this unique martial art under the instruction of Sabumnim Greg Evans, Chief Instructor at Choikwangdo4health. I was impressed from what I saw & decided to give it a go & probably one of the best decisions I have ever made & now able to spend more time with my son.
If someone had told me 11 months ago that I would be an assistant instructor, orange belt senior going for my green (August 2012)…I would never have believed them! Not to mention losing weight, increasing my fitness & stamina, so here I am, completely hooked & can’t get enough.
Choikwangdo4health & Sabumnim Evans have given myself & son a fantastic opportunity to train and progress further in what is no doubt the best & fastest growing martial art in the world, My son’s confidence has improved greatly & recently took part in his schools talent show doing Choi Kwang Do “freestyle” in front of his year group & year 6, a year ago he would not even go into assembly! Recently Sabumnim Evans has promoted him to “Black belt Academy” which has given him another massive boost to his self-esteem!
With the Drills, P.A.C.E (progressive accelerating cardiopulmonary exertion) & techniques that every class incorporates i'm left feeling refreshed & invigorated & looking forward to my next session which isn’t to far as there are many classes to choose from.
On a final note, I have made some very good friends through Choi & can honestly say it’s like having a huge family, there is no competition, no need to feel shy or embarrassed as everyone from instructors to students are helpful & kind, So come along & join us…..you will thank us the day you did.

I was introduced to CKD4Health by a friend who spoke of this NEW Martial Art. I've been here for nearly 4 years, and the more I train the more addicted I become. Within a year I became an AI and when I achieved Black Belt I became part of the Head Instructor team of which I am very proud and honoured. From Mr. Evans (my mentor and friend) I have learned so much and still can't believe at 42 I can achieve so much more. With hard work, discipline and respect for our Pledge and Principles and the unwavering support from the Choi family I will continue with my journey. Since I started I have recommended CKD to so many people and I enjoy training and instructing and watching all students journeys. If you wish to learn self defence, better yourself get fit and meet so many great people of all ages there is only one option for you, I hope to train with you soon.
