Any student who has trained in Choi Kwang DoSM with a black belt certification and has gone through the assistant instructor and head instructor certification may run a school. From gold belt and above, any student at the age of 14 who has a good standing and regular training at a certified Choi Kwang DoSM school can apply or be recommended to become an assistant instructor. At brown belt senior level, and at the age of 18, these assistant instructors can be recommended or apply for chief instructor certification, which allows them to teach at their current school. When these instructors want to open their own school, they apply through their instructor to Choi Kwang Do Martial Art InternationalSM headquarters to certify as school owner. This is a 2-day process in which Choi Kwang Do Martial Art InternationalSM will designate two faculty members to certify this individual and upon completion can then open their own school.
Non Martial ArtistsAnyone who is interested in owning and running a Choi Kwang DoSM school can apply directly to the school owner or Choi Kwang Do Martial Art InternationalSM. There is a 300-hour course they must undertake and HQ will allocate a faculty member to facilitate this course. There will also be a business course running parallel to the technical course. Upon completion of the course, the applicant will be tested for the black belt.
