Self-Defence For Kids
Our Preschool Kids Martial Arts Classes ‘Little Warriors’ program is designed to introduce your child to the basics of martial arts training and prepare them for our Mighty Warrior Program. In this program we teach them the qualities of respect, focus, listening skills and to have a ‘never give up’ attitude.

EXCELLENT KIDS MERIT BADGE PROGRAM:
In addition to instilling your child with confidence and effective anti-bullying techniques, we also focus on teaching your child important life skills by incorporating the Excellent Kids Merit Badge System into our curriculum. Each month we concentrate on a specific, easily defined, value and ask the kids to demonstrate these while they’re away from the Dojo, at home or at school. Based upon parents’ feedback we then award the deserving student with a Merit Badge that they can proudly display on their Uniform. We’ve found that this has been a powerful tool and a great incentive to help our younger students” take their Aikido home with them” and strive to be their best on and off the mats.
Our experienced instructors are enthusiastic about getting the best out of your child and helping to develop them to their full potential. All of our instructors have passed the government ‘Working with Children’ check and must complete our leadership program teaching requirements.
West Coast Aikido Martial Arts Academy has been teaching children since 1993. Our aim is to work with you as the parent in developing your child into the best that they can be and help them to become our next generation of black belts!
