Children’s Classes

Children over the age of 7 are welcome to come to Children’s Classes. Aikido teaches children practical self defence, calmness and a positive attitude.

We like to promote learning through a fun environment for children using exercises, games and techniques. Children have the opportunity to explore their abilities, to focus their attention and to push themselves physically, emotionally and mentally. Aikido teaches children “how to be strong” and how learning to stay calm and relaxed can be much stronger than anger, force and aggression.

Aikido is training for the mind and body.

Dojo Etiquette

It can be confusing for beginners – so here is a very brief guide to etiquette in the dojo.

• Bow when entering and leaving the dojo.
• Bow when stepping on and off the training mat.
• At the beginning and end of each session, the class line up and bow to the kamiza (higher seat) and the instructor.
• If you are late for class please come in and get changed, wait quietly (kneeling) at the edge of the mat until the instructor signals that you may join the class, then bow and enter the training area.
