Regis­trati­on for the 2023/24 scho­ol year is open. Groups are fil­ling up fast, sign up early!

Regular training sessions
and other activities

Each of our chil­dre­n’s groups is led by an expe­ri­en­ced tea­cher with a black belt awar­ded by the Aiki­kai Hom­bu Dojo World Aiki­do Headquar­ters and a valid coa­ching licen­se accre­di­ted by the Minis­t­ry of Edu­cati­on and Phy­s­i­cal Edu­cati­on. The tea­cher is assi­s­ted in tra­i­ning by an assistant. The­re are around 15 chil­dren in the groups, so the chil­dren have an almost indi­vi­du­al approach.

During the year we orga­ni­ze an autumn inter­nati­o­nal semi­nar in Pra­gue, a spring camp on an orga­nic farm and a sum­mer aiki­do trip to the Slo­vak moun­ta­ins. These acti­vi­ties are opti­o­nal, paid sepa­ra­te­ly and can be found in our calen­dar of events.

The chil­dren in our clubs have been growing sin­ce 2012 – smo­o­th­ly moving from the lower age cate­go­ries to the higher ones and some have alrea­dy pas­sed the­ir black belt exams.

Further information

Aiki­do can be practi­ced without any spe­cial equi­p­ment. As a rule, chil­dren take the exams for tech­ni­cal gra­des at least once a year. They are awar­ded a diplo­ma and a corre­spon­ding colou­red belt in exchan­ge for pas­sing them.

Tra­i­ning sessi­ons are held twi­ce (once for the youn­gest chil­dren aged 5–7 years) a week except on pub­lic holi­da­ys, scho­ol holi­da­ys announ­ced by the Minis­t­ry of Edu­cati­on (spring holi­da­ys for Pra­gue 1 to 5) and the first and last week of the scho­ol year. The exact dates of the first and last les­sons can be found abo­ve for each group. Up to one sessi­on per term may be can­celled with pri­or notice.

This and other infor­mati­on about the cour­se and orga­ni­zati­on of tra­i­ning can be found in the Ope­ra­ting Rules for Chil­dren and You­th.

Online registration for the 2023/2024 school year is open!
