Aikido

Kids' Aikido focuses on discipline, proper behavior and respect for others, and every class is fun. Aikido is a unique Japanese martial art with no competitions and does not require physical strength to learn. Rather, kids use natural movements to control their partners' balance and how they move. Pacific Aikido has been teaching for over 20 years, and if you have thought about introducing your child to a Japanese martial art, this is a good one to start with. Click here for more information.
