Choi Kwang Do: a joint friendly martial art

Hello! Have you ever wondered what would happen if an experienced martial artist teamed up with a group of physical therapists to create a style that was both easy on the joints and hard-hitting? Well, that's exactly how Choi Kwang Do was conceived. I hope to give you a brief summary of the style for discussion's sake. I've personally never seen/practiced anything else much like it, so I hope you find this interesting!

Interesting how these consensual style vs style duals “detoriated” technique wise into more “street brawl” or more self protection w close in fighting

I know this is a combat sport not self defense but found it interesting how Lomachenko uses limb control to create openings for strikes in the first few minutes of the video

Dojo atmosphere

Hi all

Reading more about the difference between Okinawan and Japanese way of running the dojo, I was wondering how do you run yours?  Are you strict, military like Japanese system or maybe friendly and relaxed?

I run my dojo in a relaxed manner, but not overly relaxed. There are rules, ceremonies and order. Drawback of this is that sometimes people take kindness as weakness; benefits are that it is more like a family and have great support between members.

This is pretty interesting

Intresting video, most of what is stated has a lot of relevance. All of this has been stated many time before here on this forum. Just thought it was intresting to see someone else state it.

Tai chi as a break from harder styles

Several of my joints complain daily. And I'm going through a phase of doubting the value of my practice. But I don't want to just stop. I'm thinking I might switch to tai chi for a while. Not the martial aspect, more the movement and meditation aspect. Just to stay fluid while I figure out what's going on in my head. Thoughts please?
