After a long day of sitting in a classroom and getting information shoved in their brains, kids need a space where they can let loose. What better way to make that happen than to get them into an after school program that gets their bodies moving. Martial arts is a great activity that teaches discipline and focus, each a skill that will help in the classroom.

The Children’s Aikido Program at Aikido of Austin will teach your child to not fight but to use wrist locks and arm pins and throws to defend themselves against a potential attack.
