Summary

Summary

There's no rough stuff here -- no punches or dangerous contact. In simple language, two sanseis explain Aikido's vocabulary and technique to youngsters about to begin training. Full-sized photos of kids in action show basic, child-safe stretches, stances, and exercises, and show how to fall properly, do rolls, and practice grabs. Helpful tips assure that kids build coordination, flexibility, and strength -- risk-free.
