At Sensory Taekwon-Do we offer programs to help children on the autism spectrum. Our program has developed over the years to specialize in helping children with various specific challenges. Now we are happy to offer a problem that helps children to lose weight. At Sensory Taekwon-Do we help many children with Tenafly autism spectrum taekwondo programs that address a wide variety of issues facing our children.
At Sensory Taekwon-Do our instructors are Dr. Kerry Escamilla, and Master Young N. Kim. Dr. Escamilla is the Director and Innovator of Sensory Taekwon-Do. He has advanced training in the areas of neurology and functional medicine, and specializes in early childhood spectrum disorder. Dr. Escamilla developed Tenafly autism spectrum taekwondo to help children with his whole brain/whole body approach to treatment. This innovative treatment has its origin in Dr. Escamilla’s martial arts background. Over the years, Dr. Escamilla has expanded the program to treat many additional issues, including weight loss for children.
Our Tenafly autism spectrum taekwondo program involves sensory integration, brain balancing activities and nutritional interventions. We now offer a weight loss and detox exercise program, as well as other services. Among the other services that we now offer are: martial arts classes for children on the Autism spectrum; special physical training classes for children with sensory disorders; attention for unique case children on the Autism spectrum; adult Taekwon-Do classes; and birthday parties and after school programs. Sensory Taekwon-Do is a martial arts program not only for children on the spectrum, but for children with and without learning disabilities. The heart of the program incorporates movement exercise that will create healthier pathways to the brain. Growth and improved connectivity to the brain can be increased by stimulating the areas that incorporate balance, body awareness, muscle coordination, strength and working memory. We incorporate a one-to-one treatment plan which includes nutritional coaching. During a Sensory Taekwon-do program, the senses are incorporated with the movement. The auditory is stimulated by playing music designed to stimulate right brain and left brain functions. Visual senses are encouraged by modeling the instructor. The sense of tough is used throughout the session with the climbing wall, balls and other equipment.
