Youth Classes...

We offer a full Aikido curriculum for youth students (8-14 years old) including bokken and jo staff training. There are 3 youth classes offered each week.

Youth training is 5:30pm to 6:25pm Tuesdays and Thursdays, Saturdays at 10:30am to 11:25 am.

Tuition is $60 per month with a sibling's discount available as well. Uniforms (white karate gi) are required for class and may be purchased independently or at the dojo.

Parents are welcome to watch keiko (training) or may drop kids off for class. We generally need a few minutes after class to talk. Expect your child to be ready to go 10-15 minues after the end of class. Please let us know if you need to leave early, we are happy to accomodate your schedule.

These classes are designed for 8-14 year olds. Some younger children have done fine in our program as well, but it depends on the individual and their willingness to be calm and absorb the instruction that they are offered. We recommend children to be 8 years old or at least very near their 8 year birthday.
