2018 Peace Samurai™ Ki Aikido Boulder Summer Camp for Kids

FOUR WEEKS OF CAMP FOR SUMMER 2018!

This summer, let your children immerse themselves in a safe, fun-filled and constructive week of outdoor ki games, ki aikido drills, Japanese Yoga, Samurai weapons arts, ki principles, story time and more. Each camp will culminate with a brief skit, created and performed by the children, in front of a live audience of children’s families and other guests. Camps meet outdoors at a neighborhood park, weather permitting.

Let your children experience a martial art that cultivates healthy, effective, peaceful ways of dealing with adversity, conflict and aggression.

Children will have an excellent time learning Ki Aikido in all its forms and you’ll appreciate that they’ll learn to move well, coordinate mind and body and develop more peaceful ways of dealing with conflict—a unique opportunity for children to play, stretch and develop strategies that strengthen their bodies, their relationships to one another and to the world, both on and off the mat.

Classes will be taught by Villacorta Sensei, 4th degree black belt in Shin Shin toitsu Aikido,  2nd degree black belt in Ki Development. Boulder Ki Aikido (BKA) provides personalized attention for children in a safe, supportive and welcoming environment. BKA works with children of all ages and abilities. Student to teacher ratio is 10:1 or less to ensure quality attention and instruction.
