Kid's Aiki Ninjutsu
Our kid’s self-defense program is offered to children from 4 to 6 years old. This program will teach your child self-discipline and confidence as well as self-respect and respect for others. The program is designed to help your child earn a youth black belt in the martial art of Aiki Ninjutsu.
The skills your child will learn include:
How to deal with bullies
Balance and body control exercises
How to roll without causing injury
The importance of understanding the concept of “Stranger Danger”
How to deal with frustration
The importance of good sportsmanship
Our kid's classes include several confidence and skill building exercises using a positive reinforcement approach to learning. We try to end each class with a game that uses the skills learned in that day’s class. The games help reinforce the day’s lesson as well as teach good sportsmanship and the importance of supporting friends and classmates in their efforts.
"I recently enrolled my child into class and am very impressed. Mr. Jackson is so patient and positive with the kids, and it's evident in his actions and manners how much he loves teaching this art and sharing his knowledge and expertise. From my child's perspective 'it's really a lot of fun!' However from the parent perspective, I can appreciate all of the self confidence and valuable life skills that my child is gaining, all while having so much fun!" ~Christy Duffy
