5 Goal Setting Mistakes That You're Probably Making

Posted: January 22, 2020

We are one week into the new year, and that means resolutions. Lots of them. How are yours going so far? Are you making any of these 5 sure-to-fail mistakes?

Setting goals gives us a clear direction forward to achieving them. But there are a few common mistakes that can quickly derail your progress! For example, studies show that 80% of New Year’s resolutions have failed and been forgotten by February 15, so be sure to keep these in mind and you’ll be far more likely to reach your goals! 

If you think you are making any of the following mistakes, there is still plenty of time to get back on track and hit your january goals! 


ACKD’s First Belt Promotion for 2019

Posted: November 22, 2019

Academy of Choi Kwang Do conducted the very first belt promotion for 2019 this morning of the 20th. Everyone did a great job on the mat and tested with excellent results.

The Tiny Tigers put on an awesome performance and impressed the ACKD instructors with their focus and self control. A big thank you to Alice and John Leutchford. Alice put together a batch of pikelets with jam and cream as well as a large fruit platter to thank the instructors and helpers for volunteering their time on a Sunday morning. Yummm!!!

For  those students still on holidays, this coming week marks the start of another curriculum teaching cycle. It is important for you to start classes as soon as possible so that you can do the next belt promotion which will happen on Sunday February 24, 2019 at the Academy of Choi Kwang Do.


Academy Choi Kwang Do welcomes year 2019!

Posted: April 10, 2019

Happy New Year 2019!

I hope that you have had a safe and happy Christmas & New Year break, and are now re-energized and ready to kick off for 2019.

2018 was indeed a great year for our academy and students. The past 12 months have been absolutely phenomenal with students pushing hard in their training and classes. Exam results were inspiring, students have grown to be more self-confident and disciplined and fitness  goals have been achieved. I am sure that everyone feels that they are in better shape, stronger, faster, and more flexible than last year.


The Academy of Choi Kwang Do goes GREEN!

Posted: April 10, 2019

The Academy of CKD is now Green - environmentally green that is :-)!!

We still have our distinct Safety Orange brand colours, but we are now doing our bit to be environmentally responsible. We have set up a collection point for the Containers for Change recycling program. which will be cleared weekly by the team at Envirobank.

All you have to do is bring any of the accepted containers along to the Academy and drop them into the blue wheelie bins. Envirobank will then deposit the funds raised into our Social Club Bank Account.


The Academy of CKD Gets Cleaned Up!

Posted: April 10, 2019

Even though we survived being flooded, we did have a very bad mould problem. The carpet looked like it had a new life form inhabiting it, and some of the training equipment had mould growths around 2 cm tall!!!

Our students safety is important to us, so we will be operating only with the clean training gear that we salvaged for last weeks classes at the OES Hall. The other mould affected gear is waiting for the insurance company to approve replacement. Our carpet received a thorough steam clean and is now squeaky clean.

I would like to thank Cecilia Vence from I&I Services for their prompt action with helping clean the dojang, and also Trent and Janie Nolan from Nolan Insurance Brokers for their swift action. With their continued assistance, we are getting the school back up and running very quickly as well as our own personal house and contents insurance claims organised in super quick time. They have bent over backwards to help us and I would not hesitate in recommending these guys.
