Aikido for Children and Young People

London Aikikai - Traditional Aikido for Children and Young People

Welcome to Aikido classes for children and young people at London Aikikai. Our primary aims are Aikido skills and Life Skills - to help improve, physically, emotionally and spiritually, the lives of all children who train with us. They will learn respectful interaction with other children, improve confidence, improve concentration, improve spatial awareness, learn body control and awareness and learn to fall safely - and still have a great time.


You can enrol and begin training on the same day - at any time during the term. Come and see us at the London Aikikai Dojo before class (see schedule below) or contact us by email or phone.

Age Groups

For young people aged 4 to 15 years. Four year olds find it difficult to concentrate in mixed classes but we are willing to consider them if the child is particularly mature and a family member can work with them. 16 and 17 year olds can join our classes for adults.

Timetable (Schedule)


4:20pm-5:10pm (age 4-8 years)

5:15pm-6:15pm (age 9-15 years)

A parents or other family member can now join in to assist their child (4-7 year olds). 

2024 Summer Term: 20th April - 20th July (Closed for half-term on 1st June). 13 weeks - Term training fee £91.

Additionally, membership fee of £20 once per year is due (includes indemnity insurance)

New beginners: Training fee £8 per class for the first two sessions. Then we ask that you pay for the remainder of the term based on £7 per class.

Children may stop training at any time and get a refund for the remainder of fees paid (we will retain £7/class up to the cancellation date). If we have to cancel any classes due to unforeseen circumstances then we will give a pro-rata refund for these classes.
