Brain Food For Your Child and Other Benefits
All sport activities are good for your child’s health, but why not choose one that helps in brain development?
Included in Dr. Richard Restak’s wonderful book, Mozart’s Brain and the Fighter Pilot Unleashing Your Brain’s Potential, is the chapter “Organize a physical exercise that aims at brain enhancement.” He believes that key to brain enhancement are physical exercises that emphasize:
- strength &
- dexterity exercises
When combined, hand, leg & eye coordination improve which then stimulates the brain’s development to problem solve, memorize and to set and finish goals.
And which sports include all of these? Our Martial Arts training where students learn to master coordinated movements that work on balance, strength and dexterity. As an added bonus, the forms constantly challenge the students to learn something new which is important for strengthening the brain.
As our students master the martial art skills of coordination, strength and balance, they are establishing brain development and confidence for superior athletic development. We know from experience that that this athletic development can be applied to any other sport your child may do now or in the future.
Our classes offer a great balance between fun socialization and the recognition of individual achievement. Cooperation is learned as students work together in group training drills and in favorite games that complete each class. Confidence and pride is instilled as children master new skills symbolized by our belt program.
Our Black Belt Program
And our black belt program is designed to instill leadership qualities in our younger students. We often hear from parents that their child’s proudest moment was achieving their black belt.
