Aikido is a non-competitive martial art originating from Japan that redirects attacks via relaxed, flowing, spiral movements that protect one's self without harming the attacker and can be practiced by anyone. Children's classes provide an opportunity for students to become more agile, self-aware, focused and relaxed while learning to fall, roll and perform a variety of techniques in a friendly, non-competitive environment. Game play is incorporated in the classes. Parents may accompany their children in the classes with a gi.
