Aikido is an excellent art for children. It can provide them with benefits of personal safety, confidence, and respect for themselves and others that extend beyond the dojo and into the rest of their lives.
Training in Aikido provides children with self-confidence in several aspects: the ability to deal with stressful situations while remaining calm and collected, the ability to empathize with others, and the ability to defend themselves from physical aggression. All of these skills help children to develop both physically and mentally into confident adults respectful both of themselves and of others.
