If your child has a learning disability, he or she may well benefit from the services that we offer at Sensory Taekwon-Do. At our facility, we offer For Lee special needs martial arts classes for children who have learning disabilities.
At our unique martial arts program, we offer classes for children with learning disabilities, as well as for children without learning disabilities. Our program actually uses a breakthrough martial arts program that will work with each individual child’s neurological profile. The Fort Lee special needs martial arts programs are based on leading-edge studies that show how movement incorporated into a person’s activities can actually create healthier pathways to the brain. The goal of the program is to stimulate areas in the brain that are involved in balance, body awareness, muscle coordination, strength, and working memory to improve growth and connectivity. We use a whole brain whole body approach to achieve our goals. Nutritional coaching may also be involved in our programs. All of the senses are used during our martial arts sessions. Music is played that addresses right brain and left brain functions. The Director and Innovator of our Fort Lee special needs martial arts program is Dr. Kerry Escamilla. Dr. Escamilla has advanced training in neurology and functional medicine; his area of expertise is on early childhood spectrum disorders. He is a 2nd degree black belt and knows how well martial arts are able to benefit students with learning disabilities, or who are on the spectrum. We also offer physical training classes for children with sensory disorders. We also can provide weight loss and detox exercise programs and even offer birthday parties and after school programs.
