Aikido for Kids
What is Aikido?
Aikido is a martial art that emphasizes harmonious interactions between people and their mental energy, and the taking of an opponent’s balance while maintaining correct posture. While practicing aikido, two people work together to complete a technique rather than fighting against each other. Students learn how to fall, roll, and how to turn and blend with an attacker’s force rather than blocking an incoming strike.
Aikido is a method of self- defense which can be used to disarm any form of attack; it is the discipline of coordinating mind and body to realize all of one’s vital power.In
Aikido, we learn to render an attack harmless with no serious injury to the aggressor. It can be used lethally, however Aikido teaches that it is unnecessary to harm the attacker to prevail.

What is Karate Kids?
Karate Kids incorporates all the protocol and discipline of a more traditional martial arts studio, but in a unique and fun manner for our students. The physical benefits are profound, as children practice kicking, punching, blocking, yelling, stretching, running and jumping during each interactive class.
As a result, our students grow emotionally, learn respect, discipline, self-control, concentration and goal setting, as we instill these values in each child. The program is progressive, using belt promotions as the strong motivator. As children get older, their training becomes more serious and intense, but always in a fun atmosphere!

No other activity can compare with martial arts training when it comes to instilling individual confidence. As a child progresses through our program, his or her increasing confidence enables her to excel in academic performance, reduce peer pressure, deter bullies, and use her skills for non-violent conflict resolution.
Parents tell us that one of the main benefits they see from our programs is the improvement in their child’s discipline & self-control. Our staff of professional and patient instructors finds the right balance between fun and discipline, setting clear limits on acceptable behavior. Instructors insist that students maintain this disciplined lifestyle in school and in daily life.
