Our classes are jam-packed with fun, fitness and exciting martial arts exercises that kids love! You’ll love our classes too because they’ll bring out the inner champion in your child!

When your child participates in classes, our talented black belt instructors will give your child an incredible workout while instilling important leadership and character building skills. At the same time, your child will develop rock solid self-defense skills to keep them safe.

Today there are dozens of options for fun kid's activities, but none can give your child the benefits they’ll get from taking martial arts classes!

What is the Martial Art of Aikido?  

A Japanese internal energy-based martial art, Aikido (pronounced "Eye", "Key", "Doe") was created in the 1930s by Master Morihei Ueshiba. The martial art of Aikido incorporates a very unique philosophical foundation of peace and harmony along with well-defined self-defense techniques to control a bigger, stronger, and faster person.  

Aikido training also places great emphasis on the development of positive human qualities such as compassion, courage, endurance, and inner strength. In this spirit, Aikido training is undertaken with the goal of improving the individual and thereby society as a whole.

Here are just a few of the additional benefits you can expect from training with us... 
  • Increased flexibility and strength and fitness to look and feel great
  •  Razor-sharp reflexes
  •  Unbreakable concentration
  •  A huge boost to your self-confidence
  •  A drastic reduction in your daily stress levels
  •  Improved leadership skills
  •  Feeling and sense of community as you train with a peer group who are supportive and helpful every step of the way​
​If you’re ready to look and feel better than ever then now is the perfect time to give it a try!
