Adult Program

Why Aikido?

* Peaceful, collaborative environment – come in stressed; leave happy, centered and balanced

* Challenge – Aikido is practiced, not mastered

* Family Activity – bring the kids (ages 6-12; Teens class, too)

* Supportive community – connect with others and learn connection with others

* Safe space – face and conquer insecurities and fears and become grounded, calm and confident

* Laboratory – practice effective physical and verbal conflict resolution techniques
