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 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, learn group behaviour, improve confidence, improve concentration, learn to use and move their bodies in all sorts of ways, learn to fall safely and have a great time.


You can enroll 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 3 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. 16 and 17 year olds can join our classes for adults.
