    10 BENEFITS OF CHOI KWANG DO - Benefit # 3 : "Whole Brain Stimulation"
    by CHOI KWANG DO Martial Arts International - Guaynabo, Puerto Rico By Jason Wright It would be easy to assume that as a martial art, CKD is just about learning to kick and punch.

The two halves of the brain are connected by a complex network of nerve fibres called the corpus callosum.
