Cadets – martial art classes for children aged 10+

Children's martial arts classes Oxford

What do we teach this age group?

The syllabus for our martial art classes for children for this age group is a simplified version of the syllabus we teach in our adult Aikido martial art classes but without some of the more complex controls and throws.

Are our instructors qualified?

All our martial arts instructors are qualified Aikido instructors and have undertaken our club children instructor course. They also have attended safeguarding and protecting children courses and are CRB checked.

Where are the classes held?

Our children’s Aikido martial art classes in Oxford for this age group are held at the Oxford Brookes Centre for Sport on a Sunday, 6.00–7.00pm and Thursday, 6.00–7.00pm, at the South Oxford Community Centre.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

Many of our students use their Aikido traning as part of their DofE Award. We are very happy to help them to achieve their award.

Aikido for me has become integral to my weekly routine. As well as being an incredible martial art, Aikido introduced me to a whole community of great people.
