My son has been attending Life Ki-do for five years, since he was five years old. I simply cannot say enough good things about this program! I liken it to yoga for kids because they provide such a well-rounded education, exposing my son to what he cannot yet name as his mind-body connection. My son is a rough and tumble, competitive boy, and this program challenges him physically as well as teaches him impulse control, self awareness and perseverance. It boosts his confidence and teaches him how to respect those around him (both teachers and peers). The instructors are incredible and teach real life skills. What started as a preschool activity for him has blossomed into a passion for martial arts. He's at his green belt and I hope to see him earn his black belt as a teenager!

My husband, my son and I all have the privilege of training at this joyful, life-altering dojo. Terrific martial arts training, but even more importantly, we’re learning life skills: how to be present, how to stay calm in the face of adversity, and how to carry empathy and kindness into the world. I cannot recommend Life Ki-do highly enough.

Being a student as an adult in Life Ki-do classes reminds me what life is all about. Real-time challenges, using your body and mind, seeking presence, making the choice and taking action when you are greeted with life's un-expectancies. And always remembering to breathe! Time at the Dojo means I get to be with incredible people ranging in age from teen to adult so it pulls me out of my day-to-day interactions that often limit my view of those around me. It reminds me that we are all students here, regardless of our age, and Life Ki-do has created a safe, supportive and fun environment to expand both the mind and the heart. I practice at Life Ki-do for my family, my relationships, and for me.

Life Ki-do has been such a positive influence on my whole family. My son has been going for about a year and a half, and has evolved in so many ways. My husband and I were VERY reluctant to enter the world of martial arts. We thought it was too aggressive, too competitive, and well, that was exactly what we didn't want for our son. He was already an anxious and impulsive boy with low self esteem...at the age of 6. We decided to try Life Ki-do in hopes that he might gain some focus, respect for others, and self discipline. What we got was SO much more. Life Ki-do teaches children (and parents) how to just be the best person THEY can possibly be, in a violent free space. The competition is within themselves. As a parent, I've watched him grow into a strong, confident, focused boy who can communicate (better than me at times) with his words. Not only that, but he has gained so much pride and just genuinely enjoys the workout. Last week he said, "when I went into Life Ki-do I felt angry and sad. When I left, I felt good and happy." That's what it's all about, right? In addition, it was always very important to me that my son be around positive male role models. I am so comforted in the fact that he has so many amazing mentors at Life Ki-do. Watching them model behavior has been enlightening to see. I find myself using their words and using their methodology, and it has paid off immensely in my own home. I'm not gonna lie, there was a time when I somewhat feared how my son was gonna 'turn out' in life. I am now CERTAIN that with Life Ki-do in his pocket, he will always make thoughtful and meaningful choices in life, love, and friendships. I look forward to seeing my son grow and mature with Life Ki-do, and to watch him become the man I always knew he could be.

I truly can't rate Life Ki-do highly enough. Their program goes far beyond physical martial arts and incorporates mind, body, and personal achievement at every level. Focus, team effort, respect and self awareness (with a healthy dose of martial arts) are only some of the themes that the talented instructors are able to instill with kids at every age. I've seen the growth and influence that Life-kido instruction has provided my son. Whether it's a stressful situation at school, an important test, etc...what he has learned from participating in Life-kido has translated beyond the dojo and has helped in everyday situations. . Life-kido has been an invaluable resource...highly recommended.

Life Kido is the most loving, accepting, peaceful, beautiful extra-curricular activity that my children have ever been involved in. I cannot recommend the school highly enough. Great workouts! Great personal growth! Great friendships!

Lifekido is something our whole family looks forward to each week. Our children love it because it's fun, they develop friendships and they get to feel strong and powerful in their bodies. We (the parents) love it because the fun it provides is deeply founded in a nurturing, supportive and connected experience of how to develop strength in mind, body and spirit. I always feel like we are in this beautiful silent /not so silent partnership in our parenting journey because of the way each training session offers so much more than technique. Lifekido is the total package one could ever hope for in a martial arts program.

Life Ki-do has been such a positive experience for my son, who has been a student there for 7 years. The senseis have such an amazing outlook and understanding of balance and well-being which they communicate to the students each lesson. Not only has my son gained strength and more peace of mind about real life issues but, as a parent, so have I from listening to their teachings. He started at the age of 2 and I have seen him use these amazing life lessons each and every day. I highly recommend Life Ki-do and feel very appreciative to them for an incredible experience.
