    Physical Development for Children on the Spectrum

    As defined by the American Psychiatric Association, “Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex developmental condition that involves persistent challenges in social interaction, speech and nonverbal communication, and restricted/repetitive behaviors.” And while this is at the core of ASD, what tends to get overlooked are the significant difficulties that some with ASD face in relation to movement and motor planning. In the early years, children with ASD are typically behind in their gross motor development by about 6 months in comparison to their non-ASD peers. As children get older, physical challenges are more apparent when it comes to fitness and sports. They typically ....

  • Fostering a Positive Growth Mindset

    Fostering a Positive Growth Mindset

    We all love to see our kids excel in everything they do. There is no doubt that when kids finally nail their form, or fly across the mat and break a board; everyone involved shares a sense of accomplishment. BUT it is only a matter of time before our students come across something that challenges them. Before we go any further, let’s agree that challenges are good things! If you are never challenged then either you aren’t working hard enough, or you’re not growing. Both of those are opposite concepts in relation to martial arts. From rank to rank, everything gets harder because being a Martial Artist is about growth and being better than you were the day before. Getting ....

  • How Wushu Central Teachers Turn Negative Behavior Into Teachable Moments

    How Wushu Central Teachers Turn Negative Behavior Into Teachable Moments

    As seasoned Martial Arts instructors, we have witnessed just about every sort of behavior and outburst from working with hundreds of kids over the years. We have seen it all from playful name calling to angry tantrums. Some things are hard to not take personally, but our experience allows us to put things into perspective so that we may have the opportunity to use this as a moment of learning. If you ever thought:
    “You are making me so mad!”
    “Can’t he/she see this hurts my feelings?”
    “I can’t believe he/she is so ungrateful!” Don’t feel too bad because everyone does at some point. But with a little perspective, you may be ....

  • Game-Based Learning for Future Starz

    When we hear the word “learn” we often think of children sitting in a classroom, at a desk, with a teacher educating students on a particular subject. We rarely ever imagine playing a game as a teaching and learning tool. However, the benefits of utilizing this can span more developmental areas than learning about a single subject through lecture and worksheets. As O. Fred Donaldson said, “Children learn as they play. More importantly, in play, children learn how to learn.” Children between the ages of 7 and 9-years old are what most people consider “the golden age.” They are at a unique growth period in their life. They are proficient in their ....

  • Game-Based Learning for Wushu Kidz

    When people generally think of “play” they think of fun and games…something simply for amusement and nothing more. However, there is a bigger, and more important, piece that is often overlooked…learning. As Kay Redfield Jamison said, “Children need the freedom and time to play. Play is not a luxury. Play is a necessity.” The same is true for game-based learning. When parents hear this term, they think that their children will only be “playing games” and that no learning will be involved. What a lot do not understand is that game-based learning helps children develop physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially, all at the same ....

  • Game-Based Learning for Little Heroes

    Play is often overlooked as a critical learning tool for children. Play is defined as “engaging in activity for enjoyment and recreation rather than a serious or practical purpose.” It is seen as a type of “free time” when nothing else important is happening. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. For 3 to 5-year old's, play is vital to their overall development and learning. Children between the ages of 3 and 5 years old are growing physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially, at a very rapid rate. They are discovering new things daily and are attempting to navigate the world with very little information and abilities. Because of ....
