The art of Aikido is a rich and deep discipline, yet it can be learned and practiced by people of all sizes, ages, and physical or athletic abilities.
Our Aiki Kids Program is age-specific for our youngest students, ages 4 and 5.
Your child will learn more than a martial art. They learn how to use their minds and bodies in new and healthy ways.
Children ages 6 – 10 are accepted into this program. Aikido is a particularly valuable discipline for young children. The training emphasizes physical balance and timing, coupled with a calm and controlled attitude.
AIkido North Jersey has a complete and all-encompassing training program for adults. We offer classes every day of the week, with classes in basic techniques, advanced training, ukemi (falling and rolling), randori (multiple attacks), weapons (bokken, jo, and tanto), special black belt classes, and several seminars during the year with visiting high-ranking teachers.
Tai Chi Chuan is a Chinese system of exercise, the practice of which provides valuable help in extending one’s life span, eliminating tension and increasing opportunities for physical and mental well being. Millions of men and women all over the world (and of all ages) practice Tai Chi Chuan daily as a form of exercise.
“I started my training in Aikido twelve years ago under Sensei Jerry Zimmerman and it has been and continues to be a wonderful journey. Besides the mental and physical benefits of aikido, the Aikido community is terrific. You meet the nicest people and develop a common goal which is shared by everyone training. Due to Sensei’s patience and great demeanor, our dojo provides a very healthy environment in which to develop and train.”
“I’ve trained in many different martial arts systems but Aikido has a uniqueness that distinguishes it from the rest, making it very enjoyable; something you can do for life.”
“We love that the dojo is a peaceful and positive place where our 11-year-old son and 8-year-old daughter can learn an art and a skill, and have a sense of accomplishment in doing so.”
