There is an 8-student minimum in order for us to create daytime sessions (for the convenience of the homeschooler community). Daytime sessions are 2x a week, paid monthly, and can run Sept-Dec and Feb-May. Please email us if you would like to plan a daytime group class. (AikidoBismarck@gmail.com)
We offer a full Aikido curriculum for youth students (7-15 years old) including bokken and jo staff training. Under 7y and over 15y students are accepted in the youth program on a case-by-case-basis -- for taller teens, the adult class is encouraged. There are 3 general youth classes offered each week.
Tuition is $70 per month and a sibling's discount is available. New students join for 2 months minimum and a lightweight gi is provided as part of the 2 months prepaid.
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 7-14 year olds. Some younger children have done well in our program too, but it depends on the individual and their willingness to be calm and absorb the instruction that they are offered. We usually recommend children to be 8 years old or at least very near their 8 year birthday.
