Aikido teen 



Aikido Summer camp for your teens

Descended from the Samurai Arts of Japan, Aikido gives teens the skills to develop greater confidence and self-awareness. Loaded with tons of Aikido techniques, exercises, and drills to increase focus, coordination, awareness, your teen will develop self-confidence and be prepared to handle real-life situations.

Teens will have the opportunity to learn and practice different ways of being powerful to be safe! The skills they will practice can help stop abuse, abduction, assault, and bullying.

Sponsored by the Orange County Beach Cities Aikido Foundation, the aikido teen training camps will be instructed by Gentil Pennewaert Shihan (7th Dan) and assisted by Charn Pennewaert Shidoin (4th Dan) and Ren Pennewaert, Nidan.

“Newport Beach Aikido is a great place to come and learn in a very family friendly environment. The class is very traditional and great for any skill level. My two sons (9 and 7) are in kids class and they also enjoy the learning in well disciplined practice. I personally enjoy Aikido to train my inner-core strength while learning fundamental self-defense skill. Sensei is very kind, patient, and professional. Highly recommended if you are looking for a dojo that offers both high-level spirits and respectful camaraderies!”

Anna Racheva

“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.”

Anthony Fiore

Sensei Pennewaert does an amazing job! I have been training for my entire adult life and we recently had Sensei out for a seminar and he was truly amazing. His knowledge, teaching style, and through understanding of his art allow him to connect with you and your students. We hope his schedule will allow him to visit us annually. If he is near your town do yourself and your students a favor and get there. It will be time well spent.
