Classes

Jackson YMCA
Classes are held in the Hurst Room of the Jackson YMCA. For current fees, please see the Jackson YMCA website, or speak with a representative at the front desk. Please note that fees and schedules vary based on your YMCA membership status and whether you are registering for the adult or youth program.

Class Description


Jackson Aikido offers separate adult (ages 14 and up) and youth (ages 5-13) programs. While the concepts of Aikido taught in both programs are the same, the youth program has a greater emphasis on discipline and creating nice relationships with healthy exercise. Adult classes contain a more rigorous workout with more dynamic throws and pins.
