"Aikiddos" - New Class for Children 5 to 7 at Aikido Decatur

UPDATE (August 2009): Our class schedule has changed significantly since this blog post was published.  See for the current schedule...

Due to widespread interest in a younger kids class, starting this month, April, Aikido Decatur now offers Aikiddos: a class for children 5 - 7 years old on Fridays from 4:30 to 5:15 pm.

Aikido is a purely defensive martial art in which you learn to control your attacker by blending with their energy and momentum and leading them to a joint lock position or a throw. But aikido is much more than just techniques for fighting.

Aikiddos will focus on awareness, balance, coordination, and cooperation. There are many aikido techniques which can be adapted for younger children, but others must wait until kids are old enough to roll safely and can protect each others joints and bodies.
