Dr. Escamilla believes that Taekwon-Do activities are especially beneficial for children who suffer from ADD. He has conducted years of research on brain function and has structured his program to include sensory integration therapies to help children who have trouble focusing and concentrating. The practice has been shown to improve focus and concentration due to the structure of the martial arts environment. Our programs are designed to fit each child’s neurological profile and are extracted from studies that are intended to create new and healthier pathways within the brain using movement and exercise. This promotes better connectivity and growth. During Taekwondo ADD treatment in Tenafly, the classes will incorporate each child’s senses using music specially designed to stimulate the auditory right and left brain.
