More about aikido for kids & Supplementary materials


About aikido for kids

Aikido is a Japanese martial art and a way of human development. For children and teenagers, aikido is mostly fun, versatile physical activity and also education.

Aikido technique, etiquette, mutual respect and variety of movement games develop natural body posture, movement skills, self-control, decisiveness, courage and also the ability to create contact with others and resolve conflicts without violence.

In addition to weekly classes, our dojo also regularly holds seminars for children tought both in Czech and English. See pictures from our 2017 children's seminar with Japanese calligraphy.


Supplementary materials

Safety first: here are some safety rules (PDF) for the children's aikido practice in our dojo.

Although aikido is learnt through practice, we will also be publishing some supplementary materials for our English speaking students throughout the year.
