If you think “martial arts” and picture slinging nunchucks as a lean, mean, ninja-like warrior, that’s true — and awesome! — but slightly misleading.
Martial arts is about more than strengthening the body; it’s about training the mind and building emotional well-being that will last a lifetime. That’s precisely what Life Ki-do Martial Arts has been offering families in the Lake Travis area since 2015.
Speaking from personal experience, giving your child the opportunity to learn martial arts can be a life-changing gift. My autistic son began studying martial arts in 2012, and the benefits he experienced were remarkable. Not only did he drastically improve his core strength, flexibility, balance and mind/body connection, but he developed inner strength and confidence that was amazing. Plus, he learned how to fight with swords and wooden staffs, which was incredible to watch.
Simply put, you could say martial arts was the “missing link” that brought everything together for my son. I had never done martial arts myself, so I didn’t know what was missing until I found it. If you’re on a similar quest for your child, Life Ki-do Martial Arts could be the key.
