Best Afterschool Activity: Life Ki-do

Best Afterschool Activity: Life Ki-do
PHOTO BY Sandy Carson

Life Ki-do doesn’t teach the wax-on, wax-off karate classes of old. They build on martial arts with their own philosophy that encourages movement, resilience, focus, and self-regulation. The days are not spent keeping score, rather they are filled with the exercise, camaraderie, and leadership that result in strong, confident kids. Do you get a belt at the end? Yes, but it comes with a unique, life-affirming path that would make Mr. Miyagi proud.

Life Ki-do
3636 Bee Caves Rd. #212, 512/327-2900,
