We are fully aware of special needs children and this is reflected in our appraisal towards grading. A child with special needs will take longer to achieve some of the basic skills. Working with children for over twenty years has shown me that these children really do benefit from this type of training. Again I cannot stress enough that patience is needed from the coach, the child and, above all, the parents.
Concentration in some children has first to come to fruition before Martial Art skills can be learnt. With Karate training your child will learn how to focus attention on the technical skills required thus promoting the important ingredient of concentration. Without concentration nothing can be achieved in either Karate training or any other skill based activity, especially at school. Special needs children undertake in their training to reinforce their ability to master the art of concentration; this is what the Martial Arts are really about. Motor skills, balance and coordination are the foundation of Martial Arts techniques; this is where this type of training really helps the child in question.
Please be patient………Thank you.
