OMAC Response to COVID-19

OMAC Family:

On March 15, 2020, the Governor of Ohio, Mike DeWine, took the extraordinary step to close all bars and restaurants, restricting them to delivery and take out only. He came to this decision after people all over the state sent him photos and stories of crowded bars Saturday night despite the warnings of social distancing and the governor’s edict limiting crowds to no larger than 100 people.

Governor DeWine made this decision “Based upon all of this and based upon the fact of where we are at this point, in this pandemic — we are literally at a crucial, crucial, crucial stage”. Social Distancing is the best practice aside from frequent hand washing, for limiting the spread of Covid 19, and all Ohioans are being asked to do their part to reduce the need for our health services.

In response to this new development, and in the interest of keeping everyone safe and healthy, Supreme Grandmaster Choi has made the extremely difficult decision to cancel all classes for at least two weeks beginning Monday March 16th, 2020. This will affect all branches. Your contract will be extended for the length of this closure. This is being done with the health of the families of our students as the priority in this time of state and national crisis. You are all encouraged to practice at home. We are working to provide links for you to access your requirements online. Thank you; and keep healthy and happy. "Bek Gel Bulgool - Indomitable Spirit"

Kimoodo Philosophy

Kimoodo has its roots in ancient Asian Martial Arts integrated with historic Oriental Healing Arts, aspects of which have been used in Asia for more than 5,000 years to maintain a healthy mind and body and to treat injury or illness. The literal translation of “Kimoodo” is “the way of 'Life Energy' merged in the discipline of martial arts”.

Grandmaster Choi developed and codified the Kimoodo art and practices after himself suffering a near fatal automobile accident and needing some way to rehabilitate his broken body. Master Choi drew upon his 40+ years of experience in multiple martial arts, acupuncture and acupressure, hypnosis, and Eastern philosophy to distill the basic practices into one holistic rehabilitation system. Master Choi, now a ninth degree Taekwondo black belt, continues to teach several times a week and travels worldwide to introduce people to the Art of Kimoodo.

Kimoodo's methods are holistic and harnesses the practitioner’s “Life Energies" in the healing process. The practitioner’s mind, body, spirit and emotion work together to keep best condition and fight injury, illnesses and overcome hardships in life.

Holistic Life Skills · Stress Relief · Balanced Life · Health & Fitness · Peace & Harmony

Master Choi’s disciplined and focused approach to train the mind, body and emotion heightens overall life skills of practitioners. The results are increased self esteem and confidence, greater stamina, release of tension, and increased muscle tone, speed, power, endurance, stamina, and flexibility. In addition to these benefits, Kimoodo teaches effective self defense skills in slow motion with breathing and concentration developing techniques tailored to the needs of each individual . Kimoodo thus enhances holistic life skills and offers a greater understanding of life, self and nature.

"All living things are born to live, to live to be healthy and happy and accept the destiny of death with peace and dignity."

Through exercise regimens and meditative breathing techniques designed for each individual case, Master Choi guides practitioners from sickness and injuries toward health. He leads them from anger, fear, depression, stress and confusion to harmony, peace and happiness.
