  • Martial Arts: The Secret Senses To Better Behavior

    Martial Arts: The Secret Senses To Better Behavior

    We’ve all heard of the main 5 senses; taste, touch, smell, sight, and hearing. However, there are two other, very important, senses that don’t get enough attention. Those are the vestibular sense and proprioception. These two senses are vital in the development of a child but are often overlooked, especially in today’s world. This is mostly due to the fact that safety is of the upmost importance for anyone working with children. And while safety is important, the constant lack of “risky play” is contributing to the underdevelopment of these two senses. The vestibular sense is most easily understood as the sense that helps us with balance and movement. This ....

  • Skills-Based Training vs. Technique-Based Training

    Skills-Based Training vs. Technique-Based Training

    Most martial arts forms are rooted in tradition and have been taught the same way for years. And while tradition is vital to keeping the art preserved, the way it is taught in today’s modern world isn’t as effective. As times change and as we become more educated, we must adjust to meet the needs of the people we serve. This is especially true when teaching children. Traditional martial arts is taught as a set of techniques that progressively get harder as each new level is attained. These techniques are the same for a 3-year-old as they are for a 13-year-old, yet the abilities of these two ages are completely different. Because of this, most children often become ....

  • Martial Arts Cross Training - The Secret to Developing More Well-Rounded Athletes

    Martial Arts Cross Training - The Secret to Developing More Well-Rounded Athletes

    An athlete is defined by Merriam-Webster as “a person who is trained or skilled in exercises, sports, or games requiring physical strength, agility, or stamina.” Athletes in specific sports train to be at the top of their game, but how much better of an athlete would they be if they had a well-rounded cross training program? For years, martial arts has been viewed more as an “art” than a “sport.” And while, there is much beauty in it, there is also a lot of blood, sweat, and tears that go into the training. However, that is the part that the general population does not see. Training in any form of martial arts is rigorous and is, by far, one of the ....

  • Fostering Self-Actualization in Children and Teens

    Fostering Self-Actualization in Children and Teens

    When we think of human behavior, we often first focus on the problems or deficits that people have and how this affects their achievements, or lack thereof. Rarely is the first thought of what motivates someone and how to utilize that to help them grow and develop. Abraham Maslow’s development of the “Hierarchy of Needs” helped create a shift in psychology and how we view human behavior. When Maslow created his “Hierarchy of Needs” his goal was to look at human behavior from a different perspective. All other schools of thought, at that time, were focused on the problematic behaviors of humans. So, this new viewpoint challenged professionals to approach ....

  • Emotional Development for Children on the Spectrum

    Emotional Development for Children on the Spectrum

    Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is most characterized by the emotional and social difficulties that people with this disorder possess. And while these two areas have much cross-over in relation to the development of an individual, it is important to understand the emotional challenges as a separate entity. The emotional development of a child with ASD can be very difficult. They have a hard time expressing their emotions which can lead to a lot of anxiety for them. Because of this, they may have emotional outbursts which can be intense and generally do not match the situation they are in. Although self-calming is challenging for them, the attempts they make at this are often by doing ....

    Intellectual Development for Children on the Spectrum

    Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a brain-based syndrome that is characterized by impairment in communication and social interactions. However, the implications of ASD on the development of a child includes all areas. Since ASD affects communication, cognitive development is affected and difficulty with learning can result. To be clear, though, ASD is not a learning disorder. In fact, children with ASD usually have average to above-average intelligence. The problem is that the communication difficulties that they have impact learning directly because their language skills are underdeveloped. Because they have difficulty when listening and speaking, learning things in the same manner as ....
