Aikido offers mental concentration, good exercise, and practical self-defense. Aikido etiquette teaches good manners and self-control, which may be useful later in life. Aikido falls instill balance and flexibility. There are no contests or tournaments, so there is no pressure to win and no one loses. Children’s Aikido does not require physical strength or any prior athletic knowledge or awareness; it only requires that one learn how to move. Aikido promotes good health, it is safe and fun. Currently we are accepting new child students if they are 8 years old or older. We also have an introductory package available with more information here. Please contact us if you have more questions.
