AIKIDO & BULLY SAFE (8 years +)
In AIKIDO, the children learn respect, discipline, patience, moving, falling and working with a partner.
They learn techniques (waza) from Kumite (touching hands), without real attacks. They learn how to execute a technique (tori) correctly and how to receive a technique (uke), by doing the exercises in harmony with their partner.
They also learn Aiki-uchi, basic hitting (uchi) and blocking (uke) techniques in a game called Uchikomi-randori. An Uchi-kote is used to protect their hand during striking.
We believe it is important for our children to learn how to react when they get bullied at school or on the street by a bigger child.
We use games to teach the kids how to defend themselves, stand up against bullies and gain full control over the bully. Once the kids master the fun games, they will proceed to more advanced techniques.
