Youth (ages 6-12)
Using aikido principles, techniques, and games, our youth classes for children ages 6-12 focus on developing self-defense skills, as well as coordination, cooperation, and concentration in a fun, safe, and non-competitive environment. Aikido practice also helps improve students' self-esteem and communication skills, and provides them a nourishing and supportive community. We offer youth classes 5 days per week. Students may attend class as often as they wish, and are expected to attend at least twice per week. Students ages 10-12 years have the additional option of attending teen classes.
Prospective students are always welcome and encouraged to observe class before joining. New students may start at any time. Please email or call us at 718-612-6334 to schedule a dojo visit. Monthly dues are $100.
