Suburban aikido camps for children (2022)
Our suburban camps are full of exercises, games and Japanese culture. Children first learn to be strong fighters, and then aikidists – people who help others and protect life. This year we again held two dates and had a great time with the kids.
The children, aged 6–13, spend five days together and each day we have 3 training sessions: warrior, aikidist and outdoor (in nature). In between the training sessions we do various Japanese activities (calligraphy, shiatsu massage, origami, sushi preparation, eating with chopsticks…) and also discuss together the various human virtues that martial arts educate us to.
The whole camp ends with an entertaining performance for the parents, in which the children demonstrate what they have learned during the camp.
We would like to thank the Education Department of the Prague 2 Municipal District for their support of the camps.
