Kid's Classes!

Starting this Fall, MUN Aikido will offer classes for children age 9-13. The chief instructor will be Ivan Booth (4th degree black belt) who has more than 30 years of experience practicing and teaching aikido including teaching children’s classes in both Newfoundland and Ontario. He will be assisted by other experienced members of the MUN Aikido club.

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 September 15 and in this initial offering registration will be limited to twelve children. You can reserve a place for your child from our Eventbrite page.

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 September-December session will be $120. Payments can be made by cash, cheque (made out to MUN Aikido) at the dojo or through Paypal. 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.
