Chandresh Lad is a Sixth Degree Black Belt, Master Instructor & Examiner for Choi Kwang Do.
His Choi Kwang Do training began in 1995 under the instruction of Master Keith Banfield (Seventh Degree Black Belt) at Wembley Choi Kwang Do School.
As a dedicated student Master Lad worked his way through the coloured belt ranks motivated by the training and the opportunity to help others. Certified as an Assistant Instructor in 1996, he continued his training earning his First Degree Black Belt in 1998 and was certified as a Chief Instructor later that year.
Having attained a Masters Degree from the University of Bristol, Master Lad returned to London in 2000 to continue his training with Master Banfield and establish himself as regular member of the United Kingdom Demonstration Team representing Choi Kwang Do at both national and international martial arts seminars. Further notable accomplishments during this time included training at the Choi Kwang Do headquarters in Atlanta with Grandmaster Choi.
With more than 20 years of experience in Choi Kwang Do and other martial arts, Master Lad is a recognised and respected Instructor within the London region and across the UK.
He considers teaching as an honour and in 2003, opened Harrow Choi Kwang Do School which has grown in both size and reputation. He believes that students learn by example and that the goal of all students should be to excel both mentally and physically. Similarly the goal of each Instructor should be to motivate and inspire students to be the best they can be!
Master Lad is currently working towards his 7th Degree Master Instructor examination.
