About our training

Chi Do is a style built off of the Korean style “A” Kido which uses punches, kicks, joint locks and throws as well as traditional kata to teach mental, physical and spiritual discipline to students, training them to reach beyond what they believe they are capable of and to learn what it means to follow Jesus.

Judo uses joint locks and throws to establish control of an opponent and leverage to help smaller students become capable of dealing with larger and stronger opponents.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, popularized through Mixed Martial Arts fighting, is a primarily grappling system that focuses on using leverage and momentum to overcome larger opponents while using minimal effort. It integrates throws and takedowns as well as joint manipulation and locks to immobilize an opponent.
