Most teens and adults today are bombarded with enormous amounts of stress and pressure. Through our Life Ki-do Martial Arts Curriculum & Personal Development System, you will learn a very tangible, practical way to find a calm and centered mental, emotional, and physical state – the antidote to stress. You'll gain confidence, improved focus & personal safety skills all while staying in shape and making new friends.
MARTIAL ARTS STYLE: Our martial arts style is a healthy and balanced blend of Systema, Karate, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Tai Chi, Qi Gong & Self-defense. We find this blend helps our students develop a strong martial arts skillset that can be utilized by complete beginners as well as experienced martial artists.
The Teen & Adult class culture is warm, supportive, and fun. Instead of focusing on competition and comparisons, the environment encourages you to be YOUR personal best while supporting and encouraging others to do the same. Students in these classes rave about being part of such a safe, connected, and caring community.
All levels are welcome. No experience is needed.

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.”
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.
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.
