How Does Aikido Help Your Teens?

Teens face challenges just like adults, and there is no better way to empower them than through Martial Arts.  Through Aikido training, your teen learns the value of hard work, determination and focus in an environment that is safe and fun. They learn not only self-defense, but also gain the mental focus, physical strength and self-confidence they desire to excel in school, sports, at home and in their everyday life.

Empowerment

We aim for you to grasp both the ‘why and how’ in your training. Understanding the ‘why’ behind a technique develops a more instinctive reflex and becomes a natural part of you, instead of just memorizing it. We are dedicated to guiding and supporting you every step of the way, resulting in profound changes that will enrich every facet of your life.

We help your child feel like a hero, where they can achieve anything they set their minds and efforts to. They will learn to strive, stand tall and be confident amongst their peers, making them into better friends, stronger students and more effective little leaders.

I love the classes and life lessons here. My 5 and 7 year olds are in the youth classes. The core philosophy behind Aikido as I understand it is to blend energy and use the momentum that is given to you. We talk a lot in our home about how these concepts relate to so many parts of daily life. The instructors for the kids class are amazing. They are kind, fun and outgoing. All while they work on teaching the physical movements, respect, confidence and self defense. The kids are waiting at the car to go on Aikido days!

Scottsdale Aikido and their instructors are always supportive and help build their students’ knowledge at their own pace. My son has been going for 2 years now and has made great progress in a lot of areas in the dojo and outside as well from the focus he’s gained on the mat. Highly recommended for any age to start.

My children have been in the youth class for almost a year. It has been satisfying to see their skills and confidence grow. Aikido is a great way for them to move their bodies and learn self-defense with big smiles on their faces. One of the things I appreciate most about Aikido of Scottsdale is how the older students and adults will assist in the youth classes. This mentorship encourages young students to continue in their training and promotes a family atmosphere. Senpais Stu and Tal do a great job with the little kids.

This dojo is everything that you want for your kids. A kind but firm staff of sempai who genuinely want them to succeed as human beings first and aikido students as a very close second. I am constantly impressed that every child I witness is given challenges *just* within reach so that they can feel a real sense of accomplishment for succeeding. Nothing is handed to them nor made unattainable.

My kids have been taking classes here for the past two years and love it! The classes are challenging in a safe and supportive environment. The teachers are firm but also very caring and not authoritarian. Our kids have developed a greater sense of self and grown in confidence and courage since starting. We're so grateful to have found this studio, thank you!!
