Martial Arts vs. "Traditional Physical Education"

Targeted Sensory Integration

Vestibular System

Martial arts practice involves various movements that improve balance and spatial orientation, crucial for students who may struggle with vestibular processing. This can lead to greater calmness and stability in everyday activities.

Proprioceptive Input

The deliberate movements required in martial arts enhance proprioception, giving students a better sense of their body in space, which is essential for self-regulation and motor skills development.

Interoceptive Awareness

Through focusing on breathing and internal states during practice, students develop a heightened awareness of their emotional and physiological states, aiding in emotional regulation and the ability to respond more effectively to sensory stimuli.

Our Platform Integrates With Multiple Therapies

Incorporating Martial Arts into Therapy Routines

Motivational Break

Using martial arts as a break from more intensive executive functioning drills can re-energize students, making therapy sessions more dynamic and enjoyable. This approach leverages the intrinsic motivation of martial arts to enhance overall engagement with therapy.

Complementary Daily Lesson Plans

Our martial arts curriculum complements the therapeutic goals of ABA programs, such as improving focus, following instructions, and increasing physical coordination. By integrating daily martial arts lessons, RBTs can provide a holistic approach to development.

Encouragement Beyond Sessions

The program encourages practice outside of therapy sessions, facilitating independence and allowing students to progress at their own pace. This extension of therapy into the home environment reinforces learned skills and promotes a routine of regular practice.
