Youth Program

Aikido is a perfect martial art for children!


  • Because Aikido strengthens not ony the body but also the mind and spirit, children gain a strong sense of focus and self-confidence
  • Aikido helps children learn to deal with difficult and stressful situations in a relaxed, assertive manner.
  • Unlike traditional combative arts, the defensive nature of Aikido teaches children how not to fight.
  • Children practice in a friendly, vibrant, coed atmosphere.
  • Highly qualified instructors use appropriate Aikido techniques, exercises, games, drills, and tumbling exercises to teach children how to defend themselves – without hurting others.
  • The Founder of Aikido was known as one of the strongest warriors in Japan. He mastered many of the fighting arts before developing what many believe to be the ultimate martial art – Aikido.
  • Aikido doesn’t require great physical strength or big muscles.
  • There are no contests or tournaments so your child never has to “defeat” classmates or worry about losing to others.

Aiki-MITES classes are for 4-7 year-olds.

Aiki-KIDS classes are for 8-13 year-olds.

A great way to understand our Youth Aikido Programs is to observe a class and see for yourself if our Aikido Youth program is a good fit for your family.
Call or email us to arrange an observation day for you and your child.
