Kids' Class Testimonials
“Congratulations on a wonderful, well programmed grading morning. I felt that all the kids got to show what they did, and they all looked so pleased and proud. Thank you again for creating a program that helps children to develop their self-worth.”
– Mum of A, 10yrs, and A, 8yrs
“The lineage & culture of Aikido Japanese is what makes this program unique. I am impressed with Ann Sensei’s Aikido Japanese kids program. Because of Ann Sensei’s training program my children are much less aggressive to each other & to other children. I look forward to the future years of watching my children apply what they are learning now.”
– Dad of L, 4 yrs, and G, 2 yrs
Aikido Japanese is a unique program which offers a fun and engaging combination of active martial arts, creative Japanese crafts, and an innovative approach to learning the Japanese language. These classes address the development of the whole child; physical, social and intellectual, in one fun integrated program.
Aikido is a modern martial art based upon principles of non-aggression, non-resistance, and non-competitiveness. The philosophy of our training syllabus involves close integration of Taijutsu (empty handed body techniques) and Bukiwaza (weapons – sword & staff).
