For those interested, relaxing in the dojo Tea Room with fellow students & having Japanese Tea sometimes follows adult classes and mat sessions.

"Kokoro Kids" = (5 - 7) "Heart & Mind". A "game centric" program for children 5 to 7 years of age. We have been developing this class for a few years and have had wonderful experiences with the kids. The program is less focused on martial arts techniques, and more centered around developing polite, happy and healthy kids with an aptitude for learning and helping others. Exercise, Positive Interaction and Love! Class placement is NOT concretely determined by age, but by the child's readiness for group work.
$90.00 per month 3 classes available per week, plus Sat morning with parents.
Parents are encouraged and welcome to join in, no tuition. Class placement for child is determined by Instructors, not by age or by parental requests. (Parents need uniform.)

"Kid's" = (8 - 14) Aikido program for children, designed to develop strong bodies and minds while instilling a sense of good values, partnership, cooperation and peaceful interaction. Conflict resolution and courtesy are main themes for the program. Classes are structured for all ages. Students may be broken into different age / size groups for some training exercises and partners practice. $100.oo per month: 4 classes per week + Open mats.

"Youth In Budo" = (Youth Advanced students.) Special training for the more advanced kids and young teens, set up to help with the transition to adult training and classes. Class includes a harder workload, more technically challenging curriculum and self-defense scenarios. While still a fun training environment, the "YIB" students are expected to train hard and learn more material. (Must test to get in.)

"Home School" = (11 & UP) Students in this program train at Aikido Heiwa for "Phys-Ed" requirements, additional school study time and Aikido and cultural studies. Students may also train in other regular classes appropriate to their age groups. Available to (Elementary,) Middle, and High School students in groups of 4 or more.
$85.oo per month 2 classes per week, or $20 per mo, added to any regular youth program. Will meet during the mornings in groups or one-on-one. Make Appointments.


"Aikido - General Level" = (15+) Relaxed, fun oriented practice environment. These classes are the beginning for new students who have started into "Basics". Students work as a family to help each other. Coordination, grace & personal growth are the main focus. Curriculum is primarily Aikido exercises for "movement and flow" plus techniques of the ASU testing curriculum. More advanced students may beak off to train at higher levels during this class.

WOMEN's Self-defense is a specific program for self-defense application and public awareness for Women and their partners. This class is available to NON-Members of the Heiwa Dojo.

"Randori" = (15+, or Instructor's invitation.) Randori practice is the multiple attacker, free flow training of aikido. "Chaos training." Includes weapons defense & "Jiyu waza", or rapid changes of technique as opportunity presents itself. Students who are approaching their Kyu tests may attend with permission from Sensei. Ukemi skills must be quick, confident & able to free flow from one to another.

"Weapons" = (Age 13+ or Instructor's discretion.) Focus is on traditional Bukigeiko using Bokken, Jo, and Tanto. (ASU testing requirements.) Practicing empty hand techniques is greatly enhanced by an understanding of sword and staff movements. Students must first attend 'BASIC Weapons' tutorial Thurs. from 6:30 - 7:00 to join the regular class.

"Goshinjustu" = (13+) Separate martial arts program, available to all registered students, or can be joined as a "stand-alone" program. Shares similar principles with our general Aikido work, but is taught in its own unique curriculum. Focus is on self-defense aspects of "bujutsu" or martial arts.

PRIVATE LESSONS= A great way to focus on a single subject of training, to polish it and improve is with the Private Lesson. Solo classes also help those with schedule conflicts and those who are getting over injuries or trying to improve while not training in regular classes. Private work is the best way to do Physical herapy work, getting over injuries or improving general fitness and health. Private Lessons are also a great way to work on weapons or testing curriculum. Only $60 per solo session or $75.00 for group. Schedules for daytime mostly.

Don't miss our SUMMER OUTDOOR CLASSESamong the trees in our beautiful local parks! Why be indoors when it is so pretty out?

The schedule of classes includes many sessions for adult students per week.
The YOUTH program is broken into ages 4 - 7, 8 -14, and 13-19. There are 7 classes total per week plus Open Mats. Parents are encouraged to join and learn with their children. (Recommended if child is accepted younger than 7! Required if 5 or younger.) This helps bond families and gives a safer setting for home practice with supervision. Parents are welcome in the afternoon children's classes as well as the Saturday morning session. Simply purchase a uniform, and pay the $60 annual dues, but no regular tuition is required to be there with your child. We encourage parents to also enroll in adult classes for themselves and to better serve their child's martial arts education.
The Kokoro Kids program is tailored to young kids and is very "Play Oriented",
The Kid's classes are 'game centric', and the techniques are similar to the adult's.
Older kids may attend the Youth In Budo classes, which have a harder workload, aimed at their growing minds and bodies, to prepare for adult classes.
Join us. We have a lot of fun.
An important note for PARENTS, thinking of registering their child:

Aikido Heiwa is NOT a day care facility. We do not offer our classes so that parents can get errands done. Parents, you should be PART OF your child's education. See what the kids are learning. Learn the curriculum as well so that you can help your child to excell and to study. I have no problem with folks running next door to get a coffee, but I do not want to see kids waiting at the door for me to arrive, and parents nowhere in sight! Occasional exceptions are always made, without any fuss, but I will not allow the "latch-key kids" trend to happen here. This is even more important with the younger Kokoro Kids students. Young kids sometimes have rough days. I need parents to be near by, in case of any problems. I hope you understand.
