RYU HEADQUARTERS DOJO

Studying any martial art, and aikido in particular, has tremendous transformative benefits for kids.  Apart from the physical benefits, studying a martial art improves concentration; teaches children self-discipline and respect, both for themselves and for others.  At Ryu, teaching kids is a vital part of what we do!  In all our classes experienced teachers provide quality instruction for students and create a safe, fun-filled atmosphere in which kids learn and grow.

Kids aikido provides students the space to exercise and move around freely, the opportunity to make friends and the sense of achievement that comes from remembering new techniques and gaining the ability to do something they couldn’t do before.  Kids train twice a week whenever suits your schedule!

On the weekend, many of our classes are held in a nearby community dojo.  Chuo Budokan offers training in a large and airy space with kids and adults classes held side-by-side.  This class is ideal for families who want to train together.  Kids train twice a week and students from this class who can’t train twice on weekends can also choose to do one class on the weekends and one class during the week at Ryu Headquarters Dojo.
