The Kenshinryu has provided behaviour support, enrichment and leadership programmes based on Aikido to over 7,000 school students through secondary and primary schools in the Sunshine Coast & North Brisbane region since 1992.
Over 2,000 students have benefited from Junior Aikido classes at the Palmwoods Dojo alone.
There are up to three classes available for Juniors each week:
- 6 – 16 years Monday 4:30 – 5:30pm
- 8 – 16 years Wednesday 4:30 – 5:30pm
- 10 – 16 years Friday 4.30 – 5.30pm (Advanced – by invitation)
The Kenshinryu is renowned for its junior program. Thousands of young people have benefited from the opportunity to find themselves in this non-competitive and supportive environment.
The classes focus on building self confidence, composure, self discipline, concentration, resilience, a cooperative spirit, general fitness and wellbeing.
Gradings are available by invitation and occur biannually. The highest grade available to Juniors is 1st Kyu.
Please note, no junior classes are held on Public Holidays, Student Free Days (as listed by Education Qld) or during regular school holidays.
