LIFE KI-DO MARTIAL ARTS & PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT EVOLUTION

1993

MARTIAL ARTS

Sensei Jonathan becomes co-owner of

Austin Martial Arts Academy, his first martial arts school on Bee Caves Rd. in Westlake.

2009

LIFE EDUCATION

Life Ki-do branches out with a pilot program at Casis Elementary teaching SEL (social-emotional learning) to teachers, students & parents. This was the first of many schools.

2006

LIFE KI-DO

Sensei Jonathan founds Life Ki-do & Sensei Doug joins the team as a Lead Instructor and Youth Program Director. Sensei Deven comes aboard in 2010.

2012

PARENTING

Life Ki-do expands into parenting publishing the award-winning book, Life Ki-do Parenting: Tools to Raise Happy, Confident Kids from the Inside Out.

Over the past 30 years, Life Ki-do has grown from a small martial arts school in a local Westlake gym to one of the biggest martial arts schools in Austin with martial arts classes for ages 3-adult. Life Ki-do has evolved into much more than martial arts, becoming a center for inner well-being, an educational outreach, and a resource for positive parenting.

Life Ki-do has led hundreds of workshops over the years in both public and private schools in Austin, Westlake, Tarrytown and Lakeway. Just a few of those schools are: Eanes Elementary, Bridgepoint Elementary, Hill Country Middle School, Casis Elementary, Acton Academy, Trinity Episcopal School, St. Stephen's Episcopal School, St. Matthew's Episcopal School, St. Michael's Pre-School, YPW, Casa Montessori, Athena Montessori, Parkside Montessori, Headwaters School, West Austin Youth Association (WAYA), UT Lab School.

GROUND TRAINING

Systema / Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu / Wrestling

Ground training is a crucial component in a comprehensive martial arts program. Our students learn and practice how to fall and roll safely, effective takedowns, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and wrestling techniques, as well as Systema strikes and breaks from the ground. Aside from the practical self-defense benefits, ground skills can also greatly enhance a student’s self-confidence and ability “to go with the flow.”

STAND-UP TRAINING

Systema / Sparring

We incorporate moves, drills, and freestyle sparring from a variety of martial arts styles so that students may develop stand-up blocking, punching, and kicking skills. However, our emphasis in stand-up training is on the Systema principles of fluidity and partnering that involves mutual care and respect.

FLOW FORMS

Tai Chi / Qigong / Traditional Karate

Students learn the series of individual movements that make up a Traditional Karate Kata as well as the Yang Style Short form of Tai Chi. 

The Tai Chi Form & Karate Katas build tremendous body awareness, coordination, strength, and stamina as well mental focus, confidence, and determination.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

“My son was a shy, bullied boy & thanks to your staff he has become a strong, calm, centered, confident young man.  I fully believe in the transformative powers of your program and recommend it to everyone. You reach down into the heart & soul of the student and through hard work and dedication they become better individuals from the inside out.”
