Strength, balance & flexibility are all needed to perform Aikido techniques. Students go at their own pace but are active the entire time.

What parents are saying!

“My 13 year old daughter absolutely loves training with Sensei Roberts and his support staff. She is developing self-respect and respect for others as well as benefiting from the physical aspects of learning Aikido. I am pleased with the emphasis that Sensei places “doing your best” and “helping others to do their best.”


For younger kids, and kids with focus problems, they may only focus on one COMPONENT of a technique. Then, as they get better, the longer we have them practice focusing. Before you know it, they focus on their homework… on their chores… on their conversations with you, and anything else they put their mind to.


confidence & respect

We want our students to look people in the eye when they are being spoken to- this shows confidence in themselves, and respect towards others. After just a few short weeks, kids naturally begin doing this in class, at home, and at school. Parents of children with confidence problems are thrilled to see a difference in a very short period.


It’s easy these days for kids not to exercise-  video games, social media, TV, etc. Aikido is a great exercise option.  We work on learning strength, balance, and flexibility, as these are all needed to perform Aikido techniques. But we still let students go at their own pace- there is never pressure on them to do anything they can’t.  Your child will be active – mind & body – the entire time.
