Spectrum Classes (5-7 yrs.)
Spectrum Classes Tweens (8-15 yrs.)
This class is designed especially for children with Aspergers or who are on the autism spectrum. We will concentrate on building social/personal skills such as: cooperation, teamwork, verbal and auditory listening, facial/body cues, healthy frustration outlets and respect for oneself/others as we use martial arts strikes, blocks and kicks to build focus, discipline and self control. We will tone core muscle groups to promote a healthy body image and conduct weekly "mat chats" to encourage group solidarity. Ultimately, students will learn how to choose peace instead of anxiety and how to remain calm when facing adversity.
