Aikido for Kids and Teens in Vancouver

Aikido for Kids & Teens

NOTE: Currently due to COVID-19 restrictions we offer only a modified no-contact Strength & Agility program. For more details and registration please visit this page.

In teaching kids Aikido our focus is on developing focused movements through drills and partner practice. We do not believe children need more violence in their life – it is all around them.

We teach children how to deal with aggression, how to control their mind while strengthening their body. We motivate kids to do their best through example in a safe and supportive environment.

Joint manipulation techniques are not taught in the children’s program until the advanced levels.
