ASF After School Program For Kids is an exclusive educational and cultural program available to children ages 5-15 years old. We provide the unique opportunity for kids to discover and experience Japanese culture from Chief Instructor Stephanie Yap Sensei, 7th dan, who has lived in Japan for numerous years and has been teaching at Aikido of South Florida since she founded the school over 25 years ago. Our After School Program For Kids will introduce your child to several disciplines in a fun environment: training of the wonderful non-violent martial art Aikido, the simplicity of movement and the breath in yoga and meditation! We ensure your child will be well supervised while they are in our hands.

Aikido of South Florida's primary philosophy for teaching Aikido to children is to develop each child's own natural sense of self-worth through diligent training and discipline. We work to develop children levels of confidence, respect, and awareness though daily practice, patience and perseverance.
Aikido of South Florida highly emphasizes etiquette and discipline in a traditional dojo environment in hopes of integrating these skills into their everyday life for years to come. The benefits of entering aikido at an early age is to develop a calmer, more focused child which in turn promotes a better home life, better choice in peers, better school interaction and better grades. With the right instruction, children are able to overcome physical and emotional difficulties and begin to learn that the path of the warrior is actually the path of peace. Aikido affords children the confidence and integrity needed to avoid conflict and resolve differences peacefully in a manner that will evolve into something far more important and necessary as they mature. Children are naturally active and full of energy. Our responsibility is to provide traditional instruction to all of our students to develop all aspects of their character. Building confidence, focus skills, camaraderie, self-worth and coordination which enhance their ability to interact with others and make better choices will prove to be invaluable tools that will give your child the advantage in life.
