Aikido for Children ages 6 & up
Through a variety of aikido games and controlled
partner practice, children begin to understand
the physical principles of aikido. We develop the child’s ability to move fluidly from
the tanden (center), to step out of the line of an attack, and to recognize
the unbalanced nature of violence.
Benefits: Gives your child(ren)
the edge in all the physical activities that
they will encounter during their lives.
Aikido is a common denominator for
movement in all sports. Conditioning,
balance, timing, relaxation, visualization,
kinesthetic awareness and fun are at the
core of aikido.
Benefits: One of the greatest
problems in the modernworld is learning
to deal with stressful situations in calm,
controlled, yet expressive ways. Practicing
aikido, over time, will give your child(ren)
tools for resolving life’s daily conflicts.
- Social Benefits:
The sooner children learn
that there are alternatives to fighting, both
physically and verbally, the sooner they
will experience real personal growth. Both
the individual and our society benefit.
