Teaching Aikido to Children

Teaching children requires a high level of dedication, enthusiasm and care. All the AKA instructors who teach children participate in special, additional training so they can help your child make the most of their Aikido adventure.

We have strict rules of behaviour and conduct in the dojo, which every student is expected to follow, a copy of our Code of Conduct for Juniors is below.

Aikido teaches children how to get along with each other, Aikido itself is not aggressive in nature but they learn how to manage and cope with aggressive behaviour from others - we do not teach self-defense as such! 

Please be aware not all dojos offer classes for children. On the right you will find a list of our dojos which hold classes for children.

Aikido is Different

Aikido is different in many ways from other martial arts, the non-aggressive nature, the method of holding and moving in coordination with a training partner etc.

Aiki Kai Australia has a well-established syllabus for children that is reviewed regularly to ensure that it is relevant and achievable for younger, multi-age students.

Grades, as such, are not important but the steps taken to memorise and demonstrate each level helps your child to focus on what is expected of them. As they pass each milestone it also helps us to maintain a good balance of experienced and lesser experienced students working together.
