After an extended break, we are recommencing Aikikids class at Nathan next Saturday 27th July. The class starts at 10.30am and runs concurrently with the adult class on a separate mat, finishing at 12.30pm.
If you are looking for local Brisbane kids activities, then this may be for you. The Aikikids program has improved in many aspects. It will be run as one class for all children between ages 7-13 years. Younger children may be accepted according to individual circumstances. Although we are not taking away the fun, the class will focus a lot more on Aikido, its principles and techniques, and less on playing games.
Interested parents should bring their child along to any Saturday morning class. We do like to meet with both parent and child prior to commencing training. Fees are $25 per child per month payable in advance via our website. We have done away with the 12-class pass although we will honour cards already purchased.
We ask parents to stay inside the dojo and remain in sight of their children for the entire duration of the class. Parents are responsible for the needs of their children off the mat, including taking their own child to the toilet.
We teach children the principles and martial techniques of Aikido inside a gentle and cooperative framework. One of our aims in the Aikikids program is to build confidence and focus at an early stage, which is why we structure a lot of activities around calm and self-control.
All of our instructors are black belt qualified, certified in basic first aid and carry volunteer blue cards.
