The Ideal Enrichment Activity for Kids

 

The Budokwai Junior Training Programme

Our Aikido training teaches Children

  •   Physical and mental coordination

  •   Courtesy and social awareness

  •   Health and Fitness 

  •   Good character

  •   Elements of Japanese culture and language

  •   Light Competition and sportsmanship

  •   And how to have fun !!!

 

Class content consists of learning aikido self defense and sport skills, learning how to fall safely, learning how to breathe, walk, and do calisthenics exercises correctly. Japanese terminology is taught and depending on the teacher, Japanese language is used. The culture of Japan especially that of martial arts is taught, such as courtesy, respect, group synergy and self-discipline. Having fun is a main goal and many skills are taught as games.

 

National and local competitions are held for children consisting of judgment and scoring events, something for everybody. Competition is fun but not so intensive. There are now even international competitions involving kids starting from 2017.

 

There are examinations and a ranking system of ten kyu levels and two dan (black belt) levels. This grades the skills as the children develop and colored belts and certificates are issued by the Oceania Aikido Kyougi Renmei  for such promotions. It is a very educational process.
