AikidoTeens! Sundays from 11:00-12:00. For kids ages 12 and up. All levels.
Aikido is a traditional Japanese martial art that teaches children physical and emotional control. These days, violence and bullying can be concerning. Let "the way of harmony" help your child learn to resolve conflict peacefully.
Aikido is suitable both for the active child and for the child who would like to become more active. It develops coordination, self-confidence, poise, and discipline in a friendly, noncompetitive atmosphere.
The children's program is for children 6 to 12. Parents may join in the children's classes at no charge.
In our AikidoKids! classes, boys and girls, advanced students and beginners all train together in every class.

The AikidoKids! program is also actively involved in community outreach. We've done summer camps with the Pasqua Yacqui tribe in Tucson, bringing Aikido to the native population. We are so proud of the outreach AikidoKids! does - our kids are always ready to share their Aikido with other interested young people.
Kids also perform demonstrations around the community--the most recent being the Tucson Peace Fair and Tucson Meet Yourself.
