What is Aikido?
A traditional Japanese martial art unique in its founding on the principles of non-aggression and non-violence. Its goals are to promote peace and harmony through the training of mind, body, and spirit.
Children spend the day learning new skills, like Japanese words, origami, even sushi making! This goes hand in hand with the regimented Aikido physical training they will experience.
Children will learn to work together as teammates, achieving goals through team exercises, games, and martial techniques, including safe weapons training with practice swords and staff.
Play Games and Socialize with Friends!
Games are a great way to break up the day of training while still keeping children focused on accomplishing tasks together as a team.
