Pre-Aikido Play Dates

Ever since we began our Kids Class for ages 8-13 last fall, we often get questions such as, “Can my 5-year-old sign up?” Due to the small size of our school, we simply didn’t have the resources to provide for younger children.

However, we have so appreciated the energy and enthusiasm of your little ones! And so we looked for ways we could say yes

We are excited to be launching a new series specifically for kids ages 4-7, on a trial basis for the month of October. We will meet on alternate Wednesdays (October 2, 16, and 30) from 5-5:30pm. Kids should wear soft clothing with no zippers, strings, or rough decals. Parents will be asked to remain on site, although you will not need to participate in class

Our time together will be spent developing healthy relationships by playing cooperative games. We will be learning Ki-Aikido principles in a developmentally appropriate way, building confidence, cooperation, and community with a focus on fun. As your little one learns how to participate in a dojo community, we will be preparing them for our older Kids Class.

At the end of the month, we will discuss any adjustments that would be helpful and make plans for continuing through the school year. For this mini-series, we suggest a donation of $30-60, depending on your family’s circumstances. After October, families will be encouraged to set up an ongoing monthly membership at a payment level you can afford.

Please contact us to sign your little ones up – we can’t wait to play with you!
