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.
