Updated March 12, 2020 11:15pmPST I am saddened to inform you that I have decided to cancel the seminar next week in California.

Summer – BEST time for beginners

July 16, 2018 @ 8:13 pm

Are you looking for some summer activities for the kids? Hotter summer days are still ahead in July and August - consider indoor activities such as aikido for your children. Our indoor air-conditioned facility can calm an agitated or over-heated child with balanced and fun activities. Aikido offers discipline, confidence, respect, patience, close friendships, positive attitude, better concentration, self-defensive skills, bully avoidance skills, anti-abduction skills and more! Aikido is the "Art of Peace" because it doesn't teach your child to resolve conflict through aggression but instead aikido shows there's always a peaceful resolution. Why summer time is the best time [...]
