Martial Arts | MindBody | Meditation
At Life Ki-do, the foundation of all we teach is the River ~ flowing with all of life's joys and challenges using them as opportunities to strengthen yourself both inside and out. In our martial arts & movement classes, 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.
