About The Youth Program

          "My two children and I have been studying in your Youth Program for approximately 18 months. During that time, I have seen a remarkable change in my children's self-confidence... My children now have no apprehension about being away from their parents, or trying new things."

Mumonkan-Do Aikido has remained in the same Orange County location (on Skypark Circle in Irvine) since we opened the dojo in 1990. The Youth Program was created shortly thereafter in 1991 by McBratney Sensei. In addition to the classes at our Irvine Dojo, the Youth Program has been taught to hundreds of children and teenagers at Orange Coast College, Saddleback College, Rancho Santiago College, and many more locations. We provide quality Aikido instruction in a fun - but disciplined - atmosphere aimed at youth aged 8-16.
