CONFIDENCE, RESILIENCE, RESPECT

Transform your child's elementary years into a journey of empowerment and growth with our Samurai Martial Arts & Karate Classes, specifically tailored for 2nd to 5th graders in Westlake Hills-Austin and South Austin. It’s during the later elementary years that children often start experiencing academic and social pressure which can quickly lead to high levels of stress and insecurity if not addressed. Watch your child evolve into a confident, focused, and resilient young individual, ready to face the world's challenges.

 

Our Life Ki-do Martial Arts Curriculum & Personal Development System empowers your child with the essential life skills:

 

Razor-Sharp Focus: The concentration skills needed not just in martial arts but also to excel academically and in life.

 

Unbreakable Confidence: Standing strong against peer pressure and self-doubt, fostering a sense of self-belief that shines in and out of the dojo.

 

Resilient Spirit: The art of perseverance and having a growth mindset, turning setbacks into learning experiences, and cultivating a never-give-up attitude.

 

Stress-Busting Strategies: Effective, child-friendly techniques to manage anxiety, transforming stress into strength.

Premier Martial Arts Skills: Our martial arts system blends the best of Karate, Systema, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and self-defense training to make your child a peaceful, balanced, and powerful martial artist.

 

Beyond Martial Arts: A Journey to Self-Discovery

 

Through our award winning martial arts & personal development curriculum, taught by nurturing and empowering and professional instructor role models, your child will develop a sense of self-worth  that doesn't rely on external validation but blooms from within. They will stand strong in their calm, focused confidence and kindness, setting them up for success in all areas of life.

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 first learn to connect a series of individual movements using their breath then they progress to a pre-choreographed set of moves from Tai Chi and traditional karate katas. This individual practice not only builds tremendous body awareness, coordination, strength, and stamina but also develops focus, confidence, and determination.
