“There is a growing trend that more and more children have a special need of some kind whether it be Attention Deficit, Hyperactive, Autism, Aspergers, Social Anxiety or some other. I have been working with kids with these gifts both in group classes and one on one since 2007 when I was exposed to an autistic 16 year old with the attention span of about 5-10 minutes.
"Over the course of a year of one on one lessons we were able to work on muscle control, coordination, and attention span to be able to do 45 minute lessons (including group classes) and skill set to promote to Yellow Belt in Tae Kwon-Do. Since then I have been given a heart for people with special needs and the power, confidence and courage they gain from doing martial arts.
"I use punching and kicking as a tool to encourage them to work on other areas such as memory, balance, teamwork and concentration. I have seen kids and teenagers grow in so many areas of life, that I am not sure would have happened as quickly if it was not for the help of martial arts in their lives.”
- Mr. Chris Rowe, 4th Dan, Founder
