Winter Children's Classes

This winter MUN Aikido will offer classes for children age 9-13. The instructors will be Ivan Booth (4th degree black belt)
and Esteban Ricalde-Gonzalez (2nd degree black belt). Together they have more than 50 years of experience practicing and teaching aikido. Both started learning aikido as children.

Classes will be on Thursdays from 4:30-5:30pm at the St. John’s Martial Arts Centre (21 Mew’s Place). They start on January 5, but new members can join at any time.

Children should come to Aikido classes wearing comfortable clothing such as track pants and a long-sleeved shirt (or a karate or judo gi, if they have one), with long hair tied back and no jewellery. The cost for the January-April session will be $120. Payments can be made by cash, cheque (made out to MUN Aikido) at the dojo or by e-transfer (contact us for the details). Also please print and fill-out out the registration form and bring it to the first class.

MUN Aikido was founded almost 40 years ago and is a non-profit club. We are affiliated through the Canadian Aikido Federation to the Aikikai Foundation in Tokyo, Japan.
