Re: Which Martial Art for Kids - Aikido / Taekwondo / Karate / Judo ...
As soon as my son turned 5 we enrolled him in Judo at Mudokwan here in Indianapolis. The instructor is amazing with kids and we've been thrilled with the program and rarely miss a class. My son is completely non-aggressive (gentle soul) and Judo allows him to essentially "play" while improving his ability to handle himself physically. It has increased his focus and confidence drastically. He has had issues with hypotonia and the instructor has made it a point to work on his posture and movement. Now he sits in seiza perfectly and his posture has drastically improved. The ability to "fall" correctly is also a big benefit. ]
