Aikido (Ages 4 - 5; Ages 6 - 8; Ages 9 - 13 and Ages 13-17)

Description: Aikido Kids of Tamalpais (AKT) is an empowering, fun, and enriching after-school martial arts program. A dojo is a multi-age, multi-rank, multidimensional learning environment. Never a dull moment! In an atmosphere that is supportive, safe, yet challenging, kids
have fun practicing how to focus and build their attention span, become flexible in motion, increase mindfulness, and learn to problem-solve authentically yet peacefully. Children learn how to roll and fall safely, how to quicken their response time, gain impulse control, as well as learn to embody quieting skills. In Aikido training kids learn how to shift from a reactive way of being to a responsive way of being. The most effective way to learn is to be relaxed, feel safe, and have a good time while being passionately involved. That is exactly what your child will
find at Aikido Kids of Tamalpais.
