Austin Westlake Martial Arts  

Our Austin Life Ki-do Martial Arts headquarters has been in Westlake for over 27 years! In our award-winning and FUN classes, students learn to connect their 3 Bs (Body, Breath, and Brain) to develop focus, confidence, resilience, empathy, and kindness.

Our unique Life Ki-do curriculum is a blend of martial arts styles including Systema, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Karate, Tai Chi, Qigong and self-defense training. Our fluid approach to martial arts training teaches students how to breathe, relax and flow.

Our Austin Westlake class schedule offers martial arts classes for kids, teens, and adults. Our dojo is located in West Lake Hills between Walsh Tarlton Ln. and Westbank Dr. next to Austin’s Pizza. Being close to both Mo-Pac and Loop 360, we’re easy to get to from anywhere in town!
