“Jonathan Hewitt, founder of Life Ki-do, provided the perfect mixture of instruction, wisdom, and active participation that engaged all of the staff. The training accommodated all fitness levels, while challenging us mentally to break through some of our preconceptions about each other and the kids we work with in order to be more effective and successful working together.


I highly recommend using Life Ki-do when you plan your next staff training. ”
