CKD has been designed to be a martial art for life

Our adult program emphasizes overall improvement in health, flexibility, self-defense, as well as personal success and achievement of goals. We offer adults the ability to learn techniques that have physical, emotional, as personal growth benefits.

All of the techniques have been designed, with input from the medical community, to ensure the safety of the art. The techniques do not twist or lock joints, as in many other martial arts, so potential damage to your body is greatly decreased. By using full body sequential motion, CKD techniques have been proven to be much stronger than other martial arts that do not use full body sequential motion or follow through. When techniques are practiced in this manner, the muscles in your body creates muscle memory so that if you were to ever need to defend yourself, your body already knows what to do and can more effectively defend yourself. Martial Arts that focus on competition are tend to train for "points" versus for defense. No matter what age, CKD does not compare students to one another, rather personal improvement is the focus. CKD is beneficial for all ages.
