The MAIN OBJECTIVE of the project is to provide European schoolchildren with an innovative tool to efficiently cope with bullying and other types of aggressive behaviours in a peaceful way. The SkillAiPlus method is based on Aikido, and is transferred to children in cooperation between schools and sports associations. Building on the results of a small-scale project (SkillAi), SkillAiPlus will be developed and deployed to better fit the different target groups and to have a bigger European impact.



1) Skill development of Aikido instructors to apply SkillAi+ (by train the trainer events, blended module, pilot testing and sharing good practices)

2) Skill development of teachers and social workers so they use SkillAi+ (by seminars, pilot testing, blended module and mentoring)

3) SkillAi+ skill development of children aged 10-18 (by pilot events, SkillAi+ School Roadshows, weekly SkillAi+ Aikido sessions, a blended module and individual learning)

4) Endorsing SkillAi+ in the European Aikido network (by a pan-European impact campaign, events and a collaborative educational platform)
