I once was reading an interview with O Sensei one time about this subject.

He said children of all ages should take Aikido. The only difference in the childrens classes would be that their bodies are not fully developed yet, so when doin' pins and wrist exercises you have to be careful, if it's done at all. But the learning to roll part would be easy for a child to learn because they don't have to spend all that time unlearning everything.

I have a 1 year old daughter of my own. When she gets old enough to pay attention...I'd love for her to train in Aikido...even if it's just learning to roll...ya never know, one day it could save her life...
