AIKIDO FOR KIDS AND JUNIORS

Kids and Mudansha Grading October 2016

Aikido for kids is a great learning for self-confidence, defense and fun!

During a class we practice a fair bit of rolls, aikido hand techniques, samurai sword (bokken) and staff (jo). Aikido develops coordination, sense of balance, mutual respect, communication skills and tolerance.

Each kid practices both attacker and defendant roles that builds respect, understanding and develops collaboration. Kids help each other to figure out complicated moves, since Aikido is one of the most intelligent martial arts and requires a lot of focus.

We work hard during the class and try to find time for games also.

Mumei Shudan Aikido Dojo accepts kids from 5 years old and above.

HOW WE TEACH KIDS

Adrian Tan and Oly Anise are both deeply passionate in teaching aikido to kids and juniors. They encourage kids to focus on learning aikido, discipline and respect. They constantly change exercises to keep focus and ensure continuous progress.

Our instructors adjust their coaching approach to the age, skills and character of individual children. They create dynamic class, insuring maximum safety, highest engagement and collaboration. They are great roles models establishing fairness and integrity principles.
