AikiQuest is a program that uses the martial art of Aikido to support neurodivergent adolescents and adults in their quests for lives of dignity, meaning, and joy.
The AikiQuest program offers specific supports to make this transformative art open and available to neurodivergent individuals. These include:
*A full-hearted embrace of the neurodiversity paradigm and deliberate avoidance of languages, concepts, and mindsets associated with neuropathology.
*Small classes with multiple instructors and mentors where students receive individual attention and progress at their own pace.
*An aesthetically pleasing, low-impact sensory environment.
*Practices of etiquette and respect that are clearly communicated and gently enacted.
*Verbal and non-verbal teaching methods that cultivate fully-embodied learning.
*A friendly and supportive community of neurodivergent and neurotypical individuals.
