Aikido for kids

 

The study of martial arts has been invaluable in my life.

As a way of connecting to ourselves and to others, within a context of set boundaries, martial arts can inspire confidence and provide safe, fun, inspiring interactions for introverts and extroverts alike.

As a trainee Leader in the Bellingen Cub Scouts group, I have organised to do a short session of aikido for four weeks, starting in March 2016.  This will be a great opportunity to share some exercises and work out a pattern of teaching.

I’ve always wanted to be the student rather than the teacher.  But I also feel the need to test my understanding.

I will share some reflections after I have done my classes :).
