Re: Frustrated with aikido kids classes
I could add that the kid's aikido I've seen, that also has a good reputation, teaches techniques adapted for safety. They don't necessarily "work" all the time.
I have issues with that. I have issues with kids' aikido training as such.
I think it is a very difficult concept.
The best grading system for kids I've seen is this: "When the semester is approaching its end, the people who have been teaching the classes sit down together and decide what technique should be for this rank this time, based on what the kids have been training and what they have been learning".
