Belt levels






Choi Kwang Do Belt levels Belt Level Patterns

Belt level patterns as we know them, also know as poomsae, kata or forms in other martial arts is a sequence of movements done in the air, be it a block strike or kick done in a pre set pattern, Choi Kwang Do differs from many martial arts in that the training is progressive, a new student may not be able to follow a long sequence of movements and may not understand how they can utilize what they learn so we start with something very basic which is purely a block and punch, although to most it looks very simple we are installing the very foundations of Choi Kwang Do from the ground up, from the concept of correct foot positioning, body posture, how to block a punch and to program the brain to hit back. this is just the beginning, as the student progresses up through ranks we build upon what they have already learned adding in extra techniques and new combinations that will become instinctive for them to use.
