Aikido Orlando Dojo Youth Program

My name is Beata Ksel and I am responsible for Children and Teens classes in Aikido Orlando Dojo.

I would like to introduce Aikido Youth Program and invite you to try Aikido class in our dojo.

Aikido is self defense, non-aggressive martial art. It was developed in Japan by Morihei Ueshiba as response to violent time of World War II. One of the basic principles of aikido is:

"Truce, not aggression. Harmony, not confrontation"

Our dojo follows these principles. Every child or teenager (5 to 9 years old- children classes, 10 to years old - teenager classes) learn that harmony is preferable to confrontation. In our dojo we nourish a positive attitude and we train to develop skills to help to live in harmony with others. There is no competition in Aikido. There are never any losers. Every child or teenager is learning and train on their own speed and facing their own challenges.

We train with partners not with opponents or competitors. This part of Aikido is helping to develop social and personal skills. The Aikido movements are soft and circular. We learn how to protect ourselves without aggression or control. We will be happy if you decide to visit us during the summer and try a class with us.

The Aikido Orlando Dojo is located at:

3764 Howell Branch Rd.
Winter Park, Florida 32792

No special preparations are required to try a class. Just wear a T-shirt and long sweat pants.

We have Youth classes every Tuesday and Thursday. Children (5 to 9 years old) are welcome from 5:00pm to 6:00pm and teenagers (10 to 14 years old) are welcomed from 6:00 to 7:00pm. Please, call or email in advance if you are planning on stopping by (407-284-9598 or Contact Page)
