Beginner Martial Arts

Introduction into the art of Choi Kwang Do. A holistic non-competitive practical black belt self defense system to help you achieve optimum health. No martial arts experience necessary!


What you'll learn

The class will start with an introduction, ice breakers. Then we'll begin training with a 1 minute seated silent meditation (muknyum). From there we will have a 5 minute life skills mat chat and discuss what we will learn during the training session. This will be followed by a 15 minute warm up including static and dynamic stretches. I will teach the basic commands and introduce white belt techniques for approximately 20 minutes. Afterward we'll conclude with a 10 minute cool down stretches and some core work.  We'll have closing comments and I'll formally end the class.

This class is perfect for

Anyone 8 years of age and over that wants to learn a unique Martial Arts system

Your Teacher

[object Object]
I'm also a personal trainer and nutritional coach and I've been in the fitness industry for over 30 years as an athlete, coach, instructor and business owner. My athletic background started in soccer and track and field. I was a soccer player that transitioned into a sprinter, competing in the100m, 200m, 4x100m and 4x400m relays. Most of my training methods come from the workouts I did during my running days because I've seen the results of those high intensity, full body workouts. I've been weight training for the past 30 years and the benefits of strength training combined with martial arts and good nutrition, have kept me healthy, fit and free from injuries throughout my adult life.

    I really enjoyed Tanja's class, not only did I learn a few martial arts moves, and stretches I learned a few words in Korean that she used.
