We are pleased that our dojo specializes in helping children who are on the spectrum, but we also offer adult classes here at Sensory Taekwon-Do. For those adults who are on the spectrum, are special needs, or Down Syndrome, you too can take advantage of all the wonderful results that learning martial arts will do for you. Enjoy having fun with other people who have challenges similar to you. Make friends, boost your self-confidence, and get the benefits of regular exercise all at once.
Our Ridgewood taekwondo classes are specifically tailored to each person. You are a unique individual, so your needs and preferences are going to be different than those of everyone else, so we make sure that the plan for you reflects that. There have been many neurological studies that show benefits for physical activity in general, and for martial arts especially, when it come to strengthening brain connections. That alone would be reason enough to recommend our Ridgewood taekwondo classes. But there’s much more to them than that. Your balance and muscle coordination are positively affected. Plus, your sense of body awareness grows. It’s also a very good idea to learn the principles of self defense, and that is something that we are committed to. Best of all, you’ll have a great time. Martial arts are about discipline, but they’re also about good feelings. Many of the same principles that apply to our younger clients are also true for our adult ones. We work with you one on one, using audio and visual stimulation to maximize your experience.
We are confident that our Ridgewood taekwondo classes will be a fulfilling endeavor, so contact our office to either set up an appointment for yourself, or if you want to do so for loved one or friend, we encourage that, as well. Take that first vital step.

Fort Lee special needs classes
Martial arts has been a way to improve concentration, focus and discipline for centuries. At Sensory Taekwon-Do, we offer Fort Lee special needs classes for children who may benefit from our unique methods. The founder of Sensory Taekwon-Do, Dr. Kerry Escamilla, has been treating children on the autism spectrum as well as children with ADD for many years and since his program started in 2006.
Dr. Escamilla believes in a whole brain/whole body approach to treating children with these disorders. With a neurology and martial arts background, his advanced training in both and in functional medicine, he is an expert on combining these therapies with early childhood spectrum disorders. His Fort Lee special needs classes are done in a highly structured environment, which helps improve concentration in children due to the consistency of the programs. The programs involve a wide variety of natural therapies used to help children with autism, including sensory integration, brain balancing activities and nutrition counseling and intervention where necessary. We tailor our programs to target nervous system function by using corrective exercises and activities, which help to strengthen and improve the connection between brain structures and have been shown to help manage children on the autism spectrum.
Our Fort Lee special needs classes include martial arts classes for children with autism, weight loss and detox exercise programs, Taekwon-Do for adults, physical training for children with sensory disorders, and more. We know that children who have sensory disorders have different degrees of severity, so we tailor each program to your child’s unique set of skills and needs. Because these children are impacted by impaired social interaction, communication and restricted behavior, they have trouble with focus and with concentration. Our programs are designed to enhance their physical abilities in a way that helps them find comfort and discipline.
New Jersey taekwondo
Children on the spectrum are often affected by a wide range of symptoms. To be effective, treatment requires a whole brain, whole body approach. Our breakthrough New Jersey taekwondo and martial arts program is custom designed for each child’s neurological profile. The core of this program of special needs recreation is extracted from cutting edge neurological studies that incorporate movement exercise to help create healthier pathways in the brain.

Those patients with Down’s Syndrome can also benefit from our special needs recreation. We incorporates the senses during the Taekwon-Do sessions. The auditory is stimulated by playing music specifically designed to right brain and left brain functions. Visual senses are used when students are modeling the instructor. Vestibular encompasses balance and this worked on heavily during the session. Proprioceptive involves the sense of position of your body parts. Students must use this sense to focus on where they are placing their own body parts are they are performing the martial art exercise. The tactile or sense of touch is brought in throughout the session with the climbing wall, balls and other equipment that is used during the group.
Our special needs recreation has evolved to include sensory integration, brain balancing activities, and nutritional interventions thus making it a true whole body-whole brain approach to treatment. At Sensory TKD, we adapt what is known about nervous system function to prescribe corrective exercises and activities to help improve and strengthen connections between brain structures.
