Traditional Japanese Martial Arts like Aikido have a transformational effect on children. In Japan, children help in all aspects of daily life - the dojo helps foster this attitude with discipline and joy.

SENIOR SAMURAI

Ages 12 - 16

We work with teens and young adults to instill an internal competitive nature that focuses on how the individual can perform that their best and push that performance each day, without the need to compare with others. This leads to an atmosphere where students develop self-confidence and avoid unfair comparisons due to things like growth spurts, gender, and natural differences.

Our goal is to create leaders who take their Aikido training into the rest of their lives, developing a strong work ethic and desire to help others succeed as well. Senior Samurai are given the opportunity to help with Little and Junior Samurai classes if asked by instructors, as a way to reward hard work, discipline, and developing leadership qualities.
