Avoidance of violence is at the heart of Aikido. Children learn not how to fight, but how to cooperate; how to resolve conflict in a positive way; how to make friends and avoid making enemies. They learn self-defense, but more importantly they learn self-confidence and self-respect.
We have two youth classes a week as regular schedule. Victor Williams sensei regularly teaches youth class every Wednesday and Sunday. Approximately 10 children attend training. Training starts from stretching, rolling (UKEMI), pair practice of technique, group work, game. Parents are welcome to observe class.
In August, Aikido Summer Camp is held for a week. Children will enjoy activities include Aikido, Japanese sword, yoga and games.
We have testing three times a year. Every children is graded as they developed technique.
