Aikido is a modern Japanese martial arts training that focuses on the power of body movements and momentum. Rather than punches and kicks, students learn blocking, rolling, locking, and throwing movements to control the force of an opponent. It’s a great way for children and teens to gain confidence, practice focus and concentration, and learn non-violent strategies for self-defense.
