Great Idea for a Kids' Martial Arts Program
 
This is quite possibly the best kids' martial arts program I've ever seen.

They can go all-out, and it's clearly enjoyable for them; just a more intelligent extension of the play-wrestling we all did with our siblings. In fact, I'd probably say that a person with 5-10 years of childhood experience in this would have more of an edge coming into aikido later than if they'd spent that time doing Kidz Lite Aikido (tm).

This is absolutely brilliant. I love it. Martial arts are love and friendship. Yay.
This looks alot like my kids class too.

Looks excellent - I wish I could go back in time and enroll myself in these classes. =)

Kajukenbo is like jkd, each school can be very different, but this Tyrrell Ohana has a great design for a kids class.

I don't have kids of my own, but I'm always a great babysitter/entertainer for my friends - I teach them aikido rolls, some gentle judo takedowns, and some bjj sweeps and positions and then they tire themselves out pretty quick.

(or mob attack me 6 on 1...)
