Training for Courage and Confidence
Self-Defense with a Soul
Kids (Ages 6-9)
Our fun and exciting classes emphasize physical fitness and health, coupled with a calm, controlled attitude. A great deal of the class is working with partners, teaching the children how to trust and help each other.
Our students learn to react to difficult situations by controlling and redirecting an attack to a safe conclusion without having to resort to violence.
Because Aikido is based on skill rather than strength, size and athletic ability are not important. Any child can enjoy the training and become good at the art.

Teens (Ages 10-15)
Aikido is a wonderful art for teens. The classes are similar to adult classes, providing them with real-world skills in self-defense, and giving them confidence and safety at a pivotal point in their lives.
The training develops a healthy, active body and a calmer reflective mind. There are no competitions in aikido, allowing everyone to progress at their own rate. The classes are challenging and fun, and our students become very adept in self-defense!
