At Newburyport Aikido, we offer classes for children aged 5-13 years. Older teens can join the adult classes.
During Aikido classes, children practice the art of receiving techniques: rolling, falling, “feeling the body.” Students also learn the art of performing Aikido techniques on partners.
We do not practice hitting, kicking or punching. Instead we encourage the development of body and spatial awareness, focus, perseverance, mind and body connectivity.
Aikido builds self-confidence and resilience. Above all else, it is a fun way of playing with friends while being physically active.
