We specialize in teaching Karate to children and adults, with a focus on those with ADD/ADHD, Autism and all learning disabilities
Karate helps improve focus, memory, mood, self confidence and mind body connection or complex motor planning plus the physical benefits of increasing strength, flexibility, balance, and cardio performance. Exercise is the most beneficial intervention in people's lives to optimize brain and body function. Our style of teaching is especially beneficial for children and adults with ADD, ADHD, Spectrum Disorders, Dyslexia, Reading or Mood Disorders and other learning difficulties. The format is structured, methodical, and repetitive, creating the boundaries beneficial for Attention Deficit Disorder and the routine required by those with Autism or Aspergers, and the discipline that creates success for everyone. In each class we use multisensory instruction, adapt our teaching to the student's learning style and their mind body capabilities.
