Re: Can Aikido become contagious amongst the village kids?
Word will spread and they will come...
It's still best that parents are aware of what you're doing so they can encourage their children to try or go and see.
I think that children are easy to teach when they are curious, and find it fun...also, they must be free from fear.
Like fear of rolling, or falling..etc.
so maybe get them comfortable on the mats and with basic skills and exercises first before introducing techniques.
