Aikido teaches boys and girls how to use their minds and bodies in new and healthy ways as they train with each other and help one another in a spirit of cooperation.  Kids learn how to practice a martial art without exhibiting violent or aggressive behavior.  Unlike other martial arts, there is no kicking or punching with the intent to harm one another. Aikido’s circular, flowing techniques teach children balanced body movement, spatial awareness and focus. During all classes - kids and adults - parents and children are in full view of each other in a comfortable, open setting.
