Hi, I recently attended a kids aikido class in English with my 4 year old son and he absolutely loved it!!! Lessons are held by Keni (japanese/new zealand origin) and Marti; both were fantastic with children. Lessons are on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4 to 5pm at Moricz Zsigmond Gimnazium (Budapest, 2nd district, 1025, Torokvesz u 48-54). They also welcome older children up to 14 years of age and also run adult classes. For more info check out: http://aikidokenilynch.wordpress.com/
