Where Martial Arts Meets Inner Well Being
Life Ki-do Martial Arts Austin teaches kids, teens and adults how to live like a River – being your best, flowing with life, feeling happy, confident & true to oneself.
Confidence, Focus, Self-regulation, Kindness, Strong & Safe Body
At Life Ki-do Martial Arts, we empower our students to find strength & confidence from within instead of looking to others for validation & self-worth. Combining this self-confidence with empathy & kindness for others, our students also have the ingredients for healthy, bully proof friendships.
My name is Sensei Jonathan Hewitt and I am the founder of Life Ki-do. For over 25 years, I have dedicated my life to helping kids, teens & adults become their personal best – both inside & out.

Sensei, Founder & Director
At Life Ki-do, being like a River means learning to flow with all of life's joys and challenges using them as opportunities to strengthen yourself both inside and out. Through the medium of martial arts, we teach kids and adults alike how to find their River by connecting their 3 B’s: Body, Breath and Brain.
Proper body alignment provides the structure and fluidity to be both strong and calm.
Breathing techniques combat stress and anxiety while feeling focused, relaxed, and present.
Focusing on the task at hand and coaching yourself to do your personal best and not give up.
AUSTIN MARTIAL ARTS
Karate, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Systema, Tai Chi, Qigong & Self-Defense
For more than 25 years in the Austin area, Life Ki-do classes and karate camps have offered a unique blend of martial arts training. Our martial arts curriculum is rooted in Systema, a practice that teaches students to breathe, relax, and flow on and off the mats. Life Ki-do is designed to be a safe, healthy alternative to martial arts programs that can create rigidity, tension, and physical wear and tear.
