Ki-Aikido is accessible for any body shape, size, and strength!

Is your child ready for a life-changing adventure in the non-violent Japanese martial art of Ki-Aikido?

Beginning Friday, October 5th, we’re inviting kids ages 8 and up to come train together right here in St. Paul. No experience necessary – we’ll be starting from the beginning!

Through stretching exercises, games, and some basic aikido techniques, this 50-minute class will focus on safety and respecting the body. Students will receive personal instruction from our experienced teachers. Not only that, but we’ll practice relaxation and beginning meditation, which is a great tool for navigating all the stresses that come with growing up. Our goal is to develop coordination, cooperation, and confidence.

What To Expect:

Above all, we strive to give children a positive and safe learning environment.

No matter what age, a person always benefits from being in a healthy, supportive learning environment. We aim to give kids a foundation they can rely on for a lifetime of positive growth. Through this Kids Class, we teach kids how to confidently interact with others by developing coordination, relaxation, and good posture. With an understanding of Japanese dojo etiquette, we learn to practice respect, teamwork, and connection to others.

Ki-Aikido will benefit students of all ages by:
  • Building mental and physical resiliency
  • Channeling energy into positive interaction
  • Settling mind and body through meditation
  • Stimulating brain-body coordination
  • Teaching how to fall without injury
  • Focusing on personal development, not competition
  • Cultivating respect for self and others
  • Experiencing a culture of tending the physical space
  • Developing a sense of joy and confidence

Ki-Aikido gives kids a chance to develop their full potential in a non-competitive community while strengthening their mind and body together with friends. Register today to give your child this experience of connection and joy as we learn and grow together.

Special Introductory First Month Membership Rate

For those who register now, we are offering a special First Month Membership rate of only $50 per child. This includes participation in weekly kids classes for the month of October, plus a new gi (training outfit and white belt).

Can't make it on October 5th? No problem! Register for the first Friday your child will be joining us, and we'll continue your Introductory Membership into November's kid classes to include a total of four classes.

Register on Eventbrite, or contact us in advance so we know you plan to register onsite.

After the Introductory Membership, ongoing monthly membership is by free-will donation – we suggest a range similar to a gym membership, sports league, unlimited yoga pass, or a month’s worth of music lessons, based on what your family can afford. This is the membership structure for all students at the Center for Mind-Body Oneness, regardless of age. The doors stay open because of our financial commitment, and our generosity is inspired by what this community means to us, and the difference that training in Ki-Aikido makes in our lives. We hope you will join us!
