  • Whole-Brain Parenting: Engaging the Brain for Optimal Development

    Whole-Brain Parenting: Engaging the Brain for Optimal Development

    On any given day, we may experience moments of high emotion in reaction to an event, or we find ourselves trying to control everyone and everything around us. Either way, our mental well-being is in danger, especially if we find ourselves stuck in either scenario for long. It can be difficult for children to get unstuck without some help from a parent or other adult. To give children the support they need when faced with this, parents must have a basic understanding of their child’s brain development. By incorporating this knowledge into interactions, parents can support children in learning and growing through a whole-brain approach. To help us get a clear understanding of how these ....

  • The Developing Mind: Understanding Your Child’s Behavior

    The Developing Mind: Understanding Your Child’s Behavior

    One of the biggest struggles in parenting is understanding why perfectly sweet and smart children can, in an instant, turn into the most difficult beings ever faced. It’s often as if a switch was flipped and chaos has ensued. This typically results in parents becoming frustrated at their child and disciplining them in the heat of the moment. And while this may seem like the best option, it can be counterproductive in many ways. When parents become knowledgeable about the basics of brain development and how this affects behavior, they can help integrate all areas of the brain and have better parenting success. The key to whole-brain integration is having a basic understanding of ....

  • Restoring the True Spirit of the Season

    Restoring the True Spirit of the Season

    With the holiday season in full swing, families everywhere are struggling to make suitable plans for the pandemic. While our typical holidays are full of family gatherings, parties, and many other busy events this year, the pandemic has put a damper on our holiday traditions and, instead, increased our stress. And although our regular events are halted due to safety concerns, we must find ways to make the best of the situation. Using these uncommon times to foster empathy in children and get back to the true meaning of the season will help make the holidays special. All humans are born with the capacity to be empathetic. However, we are not instinctively considerate of others, but empathy ....

  • Nunchucks Training at Wushu Central Martial Arts Academy

    Nunchucks Training at Wushu Central Martial Arts Academy

    Nunchucks, or "nanchaku" in Japanese, is a weapon made popular by Bruce Lee and animated series like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Nunchucks are composed of two sticks connected with either rope or a chain. While dazzling to observe and fun to practice, it does take proper training to use nunchucks safely. The last thing you want is to accidentally hit yourself! At Wushu Central Martial Arts Academy, nunchucks training is offered only to our best students when they are invited into our Hyper Pro Training program. This is an invitation-only class where students learn a variety of high-level weapons such as nunchucks, bo staff, bokken, and more. These students also get to represent Wushu ....

  • Attachment Awareness – How Attachment Styles Affect Classroom Behavior

    Attachment Awareness – How Attachment Styles Affect Classroom Behavior

    All children have their own unique way of interacting with the world around them. And while much of this is contributed by their temperaments, the degree of emotional nurturing plays a significant role. This essential piece is how attachment is formed. The emotional bond between a child and their parent lays the foundation for how the child will relate to other people and environments they encounter throughout their lives. When we know how the type of attachment contributes to behaviors observed, we can then serve children in the classroom in a more effective way. Dr. John Bowlby, along with Dr. Mary Ainsworth, developed the Attachment Theory. They created the “attachment behavior ....

  • Holiday Parenting – Keeping the Joy Alive

    Holiday Parenting – Keeping the Joy Alive

    The hustle and bustle of the holiday season, this year, maybe a little less intense but, no doubt, still exciting. While holiday parties may be missing from our typical December schedules, the pandemic can’t stop the spirit of the season! Decorating the house, wrapping gifts, and baking goodies will keep the joy alive. Ultimately, just as in any other year, however, the excitement can become overwhelming and put children into full sensory overload. This, coupled with the world’s unsettledness, can increase cortisol, causing more stress than joy. Implementing positive strategies into our routines can help counteract these tensions and reconnect us to the season’s true ....

    Balance Feels Best – Helping Children Neutralize Technology Overload

    As digital learning has become a widely preferred alternative for school, children everywhere are now “required” to be on devices in the wake of the pandemic. This is quite a change from the screen time limits that parents have attempted to enforce for years. Now, allotting time for school online, connecting with distant relatives via video chats, and participating in physical activities virtually are all a part of our everyday lives. Therefore, our new reality is challenging parent’s view of how much screen time is too much. Parents everywhere must shift their rules regarding their children’s use of technology and implement a balanced online lifestyle with other ....

  • Happy Thanksgiving

    Happy Thanksgiving

    GIVING THANKS I think we can all agree that 2020 has been a year like no other. As your martial artsacademy, we had to pivot very rapidly to continue serving our community. We evolved repeatedly as we made adjustments to constant changes, and every month felt like starting again. I think it is fair to say that we've worked harder this year than ever before. The world has experienced multiple disasters: COVID-19, wild fires, riots and looting, just to name a few. I know some of you have lost loved ones over this past year. Despite this being the most challenging year in memory, I am so grateful for many things: OUR INSTRUCTORS - Our team pulled off the miracle feat of meeting the ....
