Acworth CKD offers the greatest Martial Arts training, in a fun family oriented Christian environment, designed to enhance both the physical and mental fitness of our students. We have several certified Head and Assistant Instructors who aid in our student's development not only in CKD Martial Art training using a curriculum that is taught world wide, but also focus on personal aspects of our students as well.  Focussing on our Principles of Humility, Integrity, Gentleness, Perseverance, Self-Control, and Unbreakable Spirit helps students to become physically stronger, but also stronger personally.  In addition to all of these aspects we students also train in practical street self-defense.

Acworth CKD gives all credit to God for the opportunity to teach this amazing martial art and to impact our community in as many ways as we can through outreach programs, service projects, and partnering with other ministries.  Each class begins with prayer and our students enjoy being part of a "family" that puts God first.

Choi Kwang Do is a lifestyle to adapt, not just an extra curricular activity to attend. Instead of running from activity to activity, the entire family can enjoy a life changing, life enhancing, activity together! Call to set up your 2 weeks of FREE classes.

Choi Kwang Do is a unique 21st century martial art based on scientific principles developed to promote optimum health, fitness and self-defense, as well as personal growth. We are an international martial art that is in over 40 nations worldwide! Choi Kwang Do was developed by Grandmaster Kwang Jo Choi primarily between the years of 1978 and 1987 but continues to evolve as more research is done to make the art the most effective martial art system in the world. Choi Kwang Do’s natural, easy-to-learn, sequential movements maximize your body’s force-producing capabilities, but more importantly, they increase opportunities to enhance your health. It is a unique program based on the modern scientific principles of human anatomy, physiology, psychology, kinesiology, neurophysiology, and biomechanics.

As we go through the months of January and February putting a heavy emphasis on Choi Kwang Do's First Principle - HUMILITY - I have been posting some encouraging quotes and Bible verses on Facebook. I wanted to share them as well on our webpage as not everyone is on facebook and not everyone who is on facebook checks it regularly. I will be updating this list each day as well. The more we as a school and individuals consciously focus on being humble, the more we are able to ministry to those around us!!!

As you all know, we have 6 Principle in Choi Kwang Do that we recite in every class and that we should be striving to put into practice in our lives. This year I would like to focus on these 6 Principle all year, but intensely focus on each of them for a 2 month period.

I would like to set up a challenge for everyone to daily try to put into practice and focus on the principle of the month. I encourage you to seek out Bible verses or quotations that might help you to stay focussed on the given principle. You might even stick note cards around your house, room, or workplace to be a constant reminder. I encourage each one of you to make this a family focus to encourage and help each other stay motivated. I will be posting verses and quotations and encouraging words along the way as well. I will be trying to bring each Principle into focus in our classes as well. Please feel free to post on our facebook page to encourage others. Share stories of changes you see happening around you as you put these Principles into practice. You could even post additional challenges having to do with the Principles that others could join in on. Let's all make 2018 the year for true PERSONAL GROWTH!

We will begin with Humility in January and February, then move on to Integrity in March and April.  May and June will be Gentleness and July and August will be Perseverance. As schools starts in the fall we will focus on Self-Control during September and October.  November and December will close out the year with Unbreakable Spirit.

Let's begin our Humility focus with the quote from C.S. Lewis that is on our newest t-shirt design:  "HUMILITY IS NOT THINKING LESS OF YOURSELF, BUT RATHER THINKING OF YOURSELF LESS."

I am so excited to see what God will do in each of our lives, in our families, in our school, and in our community as we as a group put these Principles into daily practice.
