About Us | The Academy of CKD Martial Arts Townsville

John Vonhoff

I believe that martial arts is more than just learning self-defense moves. It is a way to improve the quality of life, both physically and mentally. What I like is that it helps me to stay fit, functional and energetic. I have been involved in Choi Kwang-Do since its introduction in Townsville in 1993, and am qualified as an Examiner by CKD International, as well as holding a CKD International Chief Instructor Diploma.

Donna Worthington

My position as a special education teacher in the Queensland schooling system provides me with valuable skills to share with our instructor team. Teaching martial arts gives me the opportunity to empower women, and to help them to stay fit, confident and safe. I believe that martial arts should be an activity that anyone and everyone can do. I am certified as a School Owner, Chief Instructor and Examiner in CKD and have been involved with CKD since 2004.

To me, Choi Kwang Do is a way of life. It gives me focus and directon regardless of whatever else is going on in my life. I am also trained as a youth development mentor and have worked in local schools delivering empowerment programs. The self defence side of our art is great for keeping people safe, but the real value lies in the personal development and self improvement. Learning CKD has made me a better person and is something that I would like to share with you too. CKD is truly “the martial art for life”

Dr. Geoffrey Gordon

I started in CKD with my daughter because it was a safe and fun activity for her, and it was an ideal father-daughter activity that we could do together. I have many years of life experience, have trained in other martial arts styles, and have an extensive medical and defense force background. I believe that CKD is the perfect way that we can improve our quality of life, and bring a little more self-discipline, focus  and self-confidence into our lives.

Walter Wituschek

My specialty is teaching the Family Martial Arts timeslot and my aim is to make learning martial arts fun and engaging for all ages. I started training in CKD as an activity with my family and after helping my two teenagers to achieve their Black Belts, became inspired to help others on their martial arts journey as well. I have made CKD my number one fitness activity because it is a whole body workout that targets strength, cardio, flexibilty and the mind.

Mark Quadrell

To tell the truth, I have never been able to make gyms work for me. After I retired I needed a structured activity to keep me mobile, fit, and to keep the weight down. I settled on CKD because it had discipline and clear goals. My nursing career has given me lots of life experiences, and I enjoy working with people from all walks of life and with different perspectives. Teaching the Little Ninja’s class definitely keeps me on my toes!

Danae McCallum

I was a secondary school teacher and am now a professional mum 🙂. I began in CKD after my kids started. Watching them train made me think “I can do this” and before I knew it, I was on the floor in the Ladies Only Class having the time of my life 🙂 I find that the classes challenge me in a good way, not just physically, but also mentally. I enjoy teaching the Adults Daytime classes and get pleasure from seeing beginners develop and improve in their abilities and confidence.

Cathy McDonald

I started practicing Choi Kwang Do in high school to stay active and reduce stress. Beyond learning self-defense, the challenges improved my physical, mental, and emotional resilience, and I am still reaping these benefits while studying at uni. Joining the instructor team boosted my self-confidence, thanks to the supportive class atmosphere. For anyone looking for personal growth in a stress-free and enjoyable setting, I wholeheartedly recommend Choi Kwang Do.

Bernadette Coles

I started my training in CKD as a way of dealing with the everyday stress and anxiety that comes with having a professional career as a Chef.
While on my journey with CKD, I have found fitness, inner peace and strength that I never thought I would possess.
Now, I not only strive to better myself within the art of CKD but in my personal and professional life as well.

Gwen Laffin

My Choi journey started 5 years ago. Being in my very late 50’s, I felt sure that Choi Kwang Do was far beyond my abilities. I had absolutely zero experience in Martial Arts. Since beginning I have found that I can “achieve “ with practice and patience. I am encouraged through every class I attend. It definitely helps my focus and balance. Choi is great for MY Mind Body and Soul.

Talia Havenaar

I joined Choi Kwang Do in grade 10 with my friend Cathy and have continued with it through to Uni. After constantly looking for a sport to do, I ended up finding CKD and have never looked back. Through CKD I have learnt self defence, and improved my self confidence and leadership skills. I’ve made many friends as well. Choi is the perfect stress release after a busy day studying.

Bella Catalano

When I first joined Choi, my dad encouraged me to give it a try and I never expected to love it so much. The principles, amazing people, and engaging lessons won me over quickly. Working with little kids and tiny tigers is a joy, helping me develop patience and leadership skills. The exercise drills benefit both my physical and mental well-being. Overall, I love Choi! It’s not just a martial art; it’s a way of life I’m grateful to be part of, making classes enjoyable for our students.

I joined Choi Kwang Do for fitness, fun, and stress relief, and it’s been life-changing! I’ve grown stronger, more resilient, and more confident. What I love most about being an instructor is guiding our younger students. Watching them master new techniques and seeing their joy is incredibly rewarding for me. I’m excited to be part of their martial arts journey!

William McCallum

Hi, I’m William McCallum, one of the younger instructors here at the Academy. Teaching younger kids is what I love most about being an assistant instructor, especially seeing their faces light up when they finally master something I’ve been helping them with. CKD martial arts isn’t just fun for me; it’s been a game-changer. It’s boosted my confidence, especially at school, and even helped me handle a bullying situation successfully. I’m all about making martial arts enjoyable for everyone.
