AIKIDO FOR KIDS
Aikido training at Peachtree provides children ages six to twelve with the opportunity to learn self-defense without promoting violence to solve problems. Peachtree offers more than just kicking and punching and colored belts. The martial art of Aikido helps children develop the skills and qualities they need to succeed in life.
At Peachtree, children learn to be respectful and social, focused and calm, agile and strong. Aikido training at Peachtree emphasizes
posture, flexibility, awareness, focus, balance, coordination, self-discipline and confidence through dynamic physical training. Children learn to protect and believe in themselves in safe and supportive classes. And the workouts are challenging and healthy, and our kids learn about Japanese culture and language, too!
As children in our program grow, they learn responsibility for their junior students and the dojo, and developing valuable leadership skills. Aikido training emphasizes cooperation instead of competition, so children learn to encourage each other to improve. Peachtree is a community, and a family, and our aim is to see every child succeed.
