Aikido Teen Program

Preparing our teens for the real world

Empower your teen through aikido as they navigate the real world with more confidence, coordination, awareness, and  focus.

Teens develop flexibility, increased range of motion, good posture and better physical condition. Each student will train at a level appropriate for his or her experience. Both the execution of technique and the receiving of technique is practiced to fully develop the student’s abilities.

All our aikido teen – adult classes are taught by Gentil Pennewaert Shihan. As the chief instructor of Newport Beach Aikido,  our Sensei is passionate and dedicated to the art of aikido. His philosophy is to develop strong basics and understanding of how aikido. The adult aikido class is a mix of all levels. As a beginner, you are always paired with a senior student to work make sure you are safe and work at your own pace.

We encourage you to stop by to observe a class and speak with our sensei and students.  Join us for a trial class and try an aikido teen/adult class for only $35.

It’s been more than 6 years and they haven’t missed a class. That’s a huge investment and commitment in this busy life if you don’t think this aikikai is necessary for your children’s future. My kids learned to be calm, aware of surrounding, and most importantly to me, be a decent human being.

“I am so fortunate to have found Newport Beach Aikido-Shin Do Kan Dojo and Sensei Pennewaert both for myself and for my family. The adult classes provide a lot more than mere instruction in the techniques and skills of aikido. For me they also bring harmony and coordination between body and mind and are the source of new energy that always leaves me recharged and looking forward to the next class.”

My daughters look forward to attending aikido class every week. They love learning new techniques, playing agility games with their friends, and practicing meditation. As a parent observing the class, I can see how my daughters will be able to use these variety of skills and practices throughout their lives.
