Aikido is an especially wonderful martial art for children and teens. It is a non-violent, non-competitive martial art which focuses on harmonious body movement and balance control rather than destructive striking techniques for self defense. It is a form of self defense based on the study of "connection". Children learn respect for themselves and their classmates, self discipline, and confidence. Effective ways to deal with bullies without fighting are also brought into the curriculum. The training is carried on in a friendly, coed atmosphere with children of all age levels training together. Parents are greatly encouraged to participate in the training with their children.
