Aikido for children

Aikido is an ideal art for young people because its philosophy is non-confrontational and the techniques are designed to be executed without injury to the attacker. Practice fosters a calm and centered attitude toward handling conflict. Martial arts practice increases children's coordination and self-confidence.

Children learn respect for themselves and others, self-discipline, and confidence. Effective ways to deal with bullies and bullying without fighting are also explored through aikido practice. The practice is carried on in a friendly atmosphere with children of all ages working together.
