But Are We The Right School For YOU?
Well…Do you answer “yes!” when you ask the following questions?
1.) You want yourself and your children to be taught effective self-defense in a safe environment?
2.) You want your kids to learn discipline and build self-esteem?
3.) You want to learn what works on today’s streets?
4.) You want to learn from authentic black belts?
1. You want your children to be taught effective self-defense in a safe environment
There is always risk of injury when studying in martial arts classes Gilbert AZ. Our instructors understand this and strive to make the training environment one that minimizes this risk. There is some truth to the idea that the more effective the martial art being studied, the more risk there is for injury. This is why it is so critical to learn how to fall correctly. At San Tan Aikido Kokikai we emphasize the ability to fall and roll without injury every bit as much as we work on the techniques themselves.
2. You want your kids to learn discipline and build self-esteem
Martial arts classes Gilbert AZ is a wonderful way to instill both discipline and a sense of self-esteem in children. The training environment at our Dojo has more structure than what you may observe at other schools. This is due in part to the fact that we are a Japanese martial arts school (we do not teach American Commercialized Martial Arts), and it is impossible and undesirable to remove these arts from the culture from which they originated. Our formal bowing, titles of respect used toward instructors, methods for receiving instructions on the mat, etc. all work to instill a sense of discipline in both adults and children. Self- esteem is enhanced when children feel a sense of accomplishment, not only as a consequence of major events like rank promotions, but also simple things like the effective execution of a particular technique, or even learning to tie a belt correctly for the first time. Martial Arts Classes Gilbert AZ is built on the Japanese structure of martial arts training which is centered on discipline!
3. You want to learn what works on today’s streets
Japanese martial arts classes Gilbert AZ are known worldwide for their extraordinary effectiveness. Battle-tested and refined over many centuries, it will become clear to you as soon as you begin studying that Aikido response will be proportional to the intensity of the attack. A highly skilled practitioner of Aikido is able to neutralize an attack of any intensity. The more intense the attack, the more intense the fall for the attacker!
4. You want to learn from authentic black belts
Our martial arts instructors are certified through our organization Aikido Kokikai after years of training in the martial art of Aikido. They have many years experience working with students of all levels via the martial arts classes Gilbert AZ program.
