Grandmaster Kwang Jo Choi is a former South Korean national champion in taekwondo, and is one of the twelve original masters of taekwondo of the Korea Taekwon-Do Association.
Our training is based on individual needs, capabilities, skill levels and age. Since our primary goals are to prevent or reduce illness and disease, and to promote optimum health and longevity by minimizing degeneration of body and mind, we also welcome those with limitations. Everyone is welcome at Peachtree Choi Kwang Do!
The style relies more on flexibility and fluidity of movement, as opposed to the more rigid lines of some other martial arts. To achieve this, it employs yoga-based stretching to develop the flexibility of practitioners.
Peachtree Choi Kwang Do in Peachtree City, GA offers a fun, friendly, challenging, and safe environment for our students where you learn martial arts, gain confidence, improve focus, and increase self discipline and respect. As you learn the art of self defense, you also focus on sportsmanship, healthy competition, and leadership.
Peachtree Choi Kwang Do offers a unique program in which our professional and caring instructors motivate students through encouragement and personal attention versus that of harsh teaching techniques or through competition. Students progress at their own rate while learning the most effective self-defense in the world.

“For over 30 years, I have had a drive and passion for teaching. Teaching while having fun, is a win-win for everyone.
Music, sports, medical technology, quality compliance, computers, and martial arts have all given me the opportunity to make a positive difference in people’s lives.
Opening my own Choi Kwang Do school is not only a dream come true, but the perfect vehicle for better health in my 50’s, 60’s and beyond.”
DYNAMIC STRETCHING rotational movements to loosen joints, get the blood circulating, and short stretching of large muscle groups
BASIC TECHNIQUES blocks, punches, and kicks that are additive with each belt rank

while the muscles and joints are warm, longer stretching of the whole body promotes flexibility and joint movement. Many stretches are Yoga or Pilates in origin
