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.
Karate is a Japanese martial art which originated in Okinawa and has a strong focus on striking (punching and kicking). Karate uses both partnered and solo practices to help strengthen one's mind and body and has been shown to be a powerful tool for helping students increase their self-discipline, concentration and confidence.
