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. Choi Kwang Do is not designed for competition and does not follow the intensity of sports training. The system is meant for all individuals who want to learn real-life, practical self-defense...
