Military personnel in Fort Benning have been taught Choi Kwang Do under grandmaster Kwang Jo Choi for purposes in military combat. It is named after Henry L. Benning, a brigadier general in the Confederate States Army during the Civil War.Since 1918, Fort Benning has served as the Home of the Infantry. Since 2005, Fort Benning has been transformed into the Maneuver Center of Excellence, as a result of the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Commission's decision to consolidate a number of schools and installations to create various \"centers of excellence.\" Included in this transformation was the move of the Armor School from Fort Knox to Fort Benning.
