Welcome to Harper CKD, home of Choi Kwang Do, one of the most effective and practical martial arts systems in the world. Led by Senior Master Hugh Harper, our classes are designed to help individuals of all ages and skill levels develop physical fitness, mental focus, and self-defence skills..
Choi Kwang Do is a modern martial arts system that incorporates the latest scientific research on human movement, biomechanics, and psychology. It was founded by Grand Master Choi, a martial arts legend who wanted to create a system that was not only effective for self-defence, but also beneficial for physical and mental health.
Our classes are dynamic and engaging, and they offer a full-body workout that improves cardiovascular health, strength, flexibility, and agility. At Harper CKD, we follow Grand Master Choi's philosophy of "practical use for a better life," which means that we believe in using our martial arts skills to improve our daily lives, not just for self-defence.
Our kids' classes are specifically designed for children ages 4 and up. Our classes teach children important life skills, such as self-discipline, self-respect, and teamwork, in a safe and fun environment.
We offer a free trial class for anyone interested in trying out our classes. This is a great opportunity for you to experience the benefits of Choi Kwang Do and see if our program is right for you.
Whether you're a beginner or an experienced martial artist, Harper CKD welcomes you to join our community of like-minded individuals who are passionate about improving their physical and mental well-being. Come visit us at our locations in Islington or Watford and discover the transformative power of Choi Kwang Do.
