ABOUT OUR KIDS' PROGRAM
DC Aikido Martial Arts - WAshington, DC
  • Whether your child is in pre-K or high school, whether they are an experienced martial artist or a complete beginner, an extrovert or an introvert, we will meet each child where they are at when they come into our school.
  • Martial arts is more than just learning self-defense. It teaches the students to better understand their physical bodies, how to be aware of themselves and others, that environments are dynamic and require adaptation and improvisation, to identify and resolve different types of conflict, to confidently and compitently communicate thoughts and feelings, to use analysis and strategy of an opponent, and to understand and value the mutual respect and need for their fellow classmates and instructors.
  • Our classes are grouped by age because we believe in delivering our material in a way that best meets the child's needs based on their current social dynamics in school and at home, age-appropriate cognitive-developmental needs, and physical capability and development. As students advance through the program, the instruction they receive will evolve to grow with them, and continue to challenge their abilities in all the skills that they will practice to improve and master over time.
  • We are excited to meet you and your family and help you begin your child's journey in the rewarding and life-changing practice of martial arts!
