Aikido is Budo, and is not a sport. That is the reason why there are few places where they teach Aikido for children. However, Aikido, with its universal values, its training of body and mind in a peaceful atmosphere without competition and without confronting others, can play a very positive role in children’s education.
Byakko Dojo has developed a way of teaching Aikido to kids. This unique method combines the discipline of the martial arts with the activation of the kids’ vital and creative energy (Ki).
Rather than learning techniques to win in a confrontation, during practice the kids will develop their vitality and creativity in a joyful atmosphere, imbued with the spirit of the old Samurai.
Classes are open for kids between 4 and 10 years old and from 11 to 14 years old.
