Aikido is just great for the young ones. It increases critical social competencies such as respect, tolerance, and politeness against others. Our kids’ class trains body fitness, agility, and self-confidence.

4-6 year olds:
In this class, the youngest ones learn to get along without their parents and that they can master difficult situations without their assistance. The kids learn to trust themselves, their partners, and their coaches and teachers. With this trust, they can start exploring what they can achieve by themselves.
6-10 year olds:
In this age, the technical aspects of Aikido have become more critical. Complemented by playful exercises, the kids learn more complex techniques requiring total concentration. They can now pass their first belt graduations starting with six years. Advanced students train together with beginners and assist each other.
10-13 year olds:
Traditional form practice and training the physical and mental stamina is the core in this age classes. Both help to develop a heightened body intelligence, which is exceptionally beneficial for kids during puberty.
14-18 year olds
The youths train in their group – the older ones may also join the adult classes beginning at about 16 years. We want the kids to have the opportunity to practice with their peers and with older ones. This creates a pleasant mat atmosphere and helps everybody progress faster.
Everybody is very welcome to participate in a free trial class or to watch one of the classes. For the first practice, you only need to bring comfortable sports gear (long pants). You don’t need shoes.
