As a mom (and also a pediatrician), I highly recommend this phenomenal program. There is really nothing like it. The teachers are outstanding and do a remarkable job of blending the physical skills of martial arts with the social/emotional values of self-awareness, self-control and empathy. The experience is joyful, physically challenging, and enlightening. My son and his friends look forward to their classes each week, and wish only that they could attend each and every day.

As a teacher I can vouch that the instructors and staff at Life Kido are top notch. They provide their students with a fun and challenging format to build life skills and the tools necessary to navigate situations in life. My daughter loves going to Life Kido and she talks about her instructors all the time. We drive an hour to attend class each week and it is well worth the effort to have this high quality experience in our lives. I would highly recommend Life Kido to kids of all ages!

My kids have enjoyed Life Ki-do for many years now. The instructors are amazingly positive, encouraging and inspiring. It is a quality program that does not disappoint.

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.

A truly nurturing, calm, loving environment. Children are treated with the utmost respect and in turn they learn a respect for themselves, their world and others. Elements of mindfulness, meditation, martial arts and relational skills all combined in a manner that even the younger (or most hyperactive) children can understand. Many times sitting in the Dojo watching a lesson I find myself struck by the sheer common sense and utter brilliance of the concepts covered. For example during the obstacle course races the children learn awareness of themselves and their surroundings while gaining agility and fitness. Brilliant, effective and such fun. The program builds confidence, provides coping mechanisms for anxiety and focus all bundled together with lots of physical exercise. Older students are given leadership roles and model behavior the younger children want to emulate. We use some of the focus and coping mechanisms on a daily basis to help ease sensory overload. It’s basically fitness for the mind and body. We held a birthday party at the dojo and it was such a huge hit, the children had a brilliant time and it was deemed a success all round. I am really grateful that we found this program for my child. It has made an immense difference.

Our family loves life kido. It is the only extracurricular activity we are choosing to do. The instructors are amazingly patient and respectful. There are so many life lessons they are learning that we incorporate into our daily lives. We definitely want our son to stay there until he is a black belt!

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.
