Aikido is an excellent martial art for children. Like all martial arts, it can help to build a child’s confidence and sense of self-reliance, as well as providing a good form of physical exercise. In addition, aikido strongly emphasises collaborative training, conflict resolution, and respect for others, all of which help children to develop positive social skills. Junior classes offer an opportunity for children to make new friends, burn off excess energy and have fun in a safe environment whilst also learning the rudiments of aikido. Older children receive more in-depth tuition & exercise
