Kids Program

The goal of our kids program is to provide a safe, positive environment for young people to practice the art of Aikido.  Through their practice, kids will:

  • Develop strength, balance and coordination

  • Gain self-awareness and increase their confidence and focus

  • Have fun learning a non-competitive martial art

Aikido is a unique Japanese martial art that teaches children self defense in a non-violent, non-aggressive manner. In Aikido there are no competitive tournaments or sparring. Students practice cooperatively whereby they learn to naturally respond to conflict with calm, confidence and integrity.

Kids ages five and up are welcome. Our kids program offers classes twice weekly and you can enroll your son or daughter at any time.

Dues are $75/month for one day per week or $100/month for twice a week. Fees can be paid by cash, check, or direct-debit payments.  Additional siblings receive $10 off their monthly dues.

Kids and parents are always welcome and encouraged to watch or participate in a class. If your son or daughter would like to give it a try before signing up, we require students to fill out a release form and ask that you contact us so we know when to expect you.
