Our Martial Arts Training: 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?
In Dr. Richard Restak’s book on brain enhancement, ‘Mozart’s Brain and the Fighter Pilot Unleashing Your Brain’s Potential,’ he recommends athletic endeavors that organize specific physical movements, which in turns, provides 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.
