 Master Jugnu Nanda 

Master Jugnu Nanda, the Director and Chief Instructor of Choi Kwang - Do Martial Art, has devoted his entire life to the propagation of martial arts in Mumbai. A close introspection of his achievements brings to light his magnificent personality. Even after acquiring mastery in Karate and Taekwondo with nearly 20 years of diligent practice, Master Jugnu Nanda was always curious to find new techniques and devices in order to make martial arts more effective and easy-to-learn.

In 1992, Master Nanda read an article on the revolutionary martial arts techniques introduced by Korean Grandmaster Kwang Jo Choi and promptly invited him to India. Grandmaster Choi is a 9th degree black belt and an exponent of a revolutionary form of martial art called Choi Kwang - Do Martial Art. He gave a demonstration of his unique art. He was fluid in his movement and displayed devastating firepower, which left Master Jugnu Nanda spell bound. Grandmaster Choi emphasized that he had developed his unique art after 14 years of extensive research. His revolutionary techniques, which are essentially biomechanical, have been approved of by the medical fraternity of the USA. These latest techniques eliminate hyperextension, jerking, ensures complete safety, enhances fitness, strength, and enhances the positive attitude of the practitioner. The stretching exercises are based on Yoga and the techniques for punches and kicks are practical and easy-to-learn.

Master Nanda mastered this revolutionary martial art and has been teaching the same to his students for the past 8 years at St. Xavier's High School in Vile Parle, Mumbai. He inducts students from the age of 4 years and above. Any physically fit person can join the classes and acquire a black belt degree after 3 to 4 years of practice. Master Nanda told, "Choi Kwang-Do is a very safe and practical art. It not only helps to channelise your energy in the right direction but also develops your confidence and personality".

The international headquarters of Choi Kwang - Do Martial Art is in Atlanta, U.S. Master Nanda takes his students to the US for extensive training every year. The students are highly indebted to Master Nanda. Twenty-five year old Virendra Waghela, who holds a 2nd degree black belt, owes his progress to the guidance of Master Nanda. Waghela has been practicing martial arts with vigour and enthusiasm for the past 10 years. Another 20 year-old Ripal Sonagre, who holds a 2nd degree black belt, is a FYBCom. student of Sanskardham College, Goregoan. Sonagre believes that his black belt degree will help him to join the armed forces. In the words of 38-year-old Dhanesh Chheda, a 3rd degree Dan Black Belt, Asst. Instructor and probably the oldest student of Master Nanda, "Being a member of this great organisation, I have learnt a new way of life. I want students to achieve personal as well as professional satisfaction in life by joining our martial arts classes "
