Kids Monthly Special Virtual Class: October – Japan!
October 24 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDT
Kids, please join us as we travel around the world virtually each month and train with various instructors!
Every month we’re hoping to have a new dojo to visit virtually.
Whether you are new to Aikido and martial arts or if you’re super advanced, all are welcome.
This month, October, we’ll be traveling (virtually) to Japan, where we’ll be training with Numata Sensei and his kids class members. In Japan, dojos have opened back up now, so you’ll be able to train with the kids there in the dojo in real time!

Meet the Instructor
Hideo Numata Sensei, 7th dan Aikido | 8th dan Iaido
Head Instructor / Dojo-Cho: AKI Yokosuka | Numata Dojo
Numata Sensei is Dojo-Cho of AKI Yokosuka in Japan. He began Aikido in his teens under Takeda Shihan at the legendary Sasame Dojo in Kamakura, Japan.
He currently holds the rank of 7th dan through Aikikai and 8th dan in Iaido, a super cool sword art.
Since the global pandemic, Numata Sensei has been teaching regularly on our Virtual Dojo via Zoom, drawing on his knowledge of Aikido and sword to emphasize alignment, posture and footwork.
Numata Sensei’s kids class strikes a wonderful balance between fun yet disciplined and informative.
The base fee for one session is $8.
For those who would like to include a donation, we have additional sign-up options.
AKI USA is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Net proceeds will support the instructors and special events like this, as well as valuable programs, such as our youth scholarship program for those who would not normally have the opportunity to train.
