Focus without distractions.
Kids move quickly through childhood – and everything is a learning experience. Their world and perceptions are different. Like a puppy or a kitten, they are innately curious about almost everything, and it often becomes hard to prioritize what is most important to focus on at the moment. Even if they know that something should have all their attention, it is still very hard to do it. When kids are in constant motion – in their bodies and their minds – it’s difficult for them to turn off that ‘busy switch’, and direct their focus over to the one most important thing.
Tiger Schulmann’s program for kids creates a positive difference.
The Benefits of Tiger Schulmann Training
One of the most important benefits of the Tiger Schulmann’s martial arts training is improved focus. No matter a child’s age or stage of development, they will improve. Even parents of children with ADD and ADHD have confirmed a significantly increased ability to concentrate, longer attention spans, and more appropriate behavior. This translates to better grades. Parents and teachers have both acknowledged the amazing change after a child started training in a Tiger Schulmann’s program. Once a young person learns to improve their focus, they will see they can easily do things that were previously more challenging. Or even overwhelming! Once that happens, they will really start to enjoy learning – not just in school, or martial arts – but in everything they do.
It’s not surprising – our instructors see it every day in class. The martial arts school becomes the foundation for enhanced focus, and the training has such a positive effect on the student in so many ways.
The benefits gained from Tiger Schulmann’s martial art training extend far beyond the martial arts school. Focus helps kids in every activity, including other sports, social interactions, and classrooms.
So many Tiger Schulmann’s students have grown up to attend and flourish at prestigious colleges and universities, and onward to great accomplishments in their adult careers.
Acknowledgement from the Education Community
Not only do many pre-school and grade school teachers recommend Tiger Schulmann’s Martial Arts – they enroll their own children. There is no better affirmation than that.
The public, private or homeschool environments are not always the optimal place to acquire and refine these attention focusing skills. There are so many variables throughout the day. The martial arts school, however, is completely different and unique. The kids feel that vibrant energy as soon as they enter, and the fun atmosphere encourages them to totally focus in on their class.
This space is also one of encouragement. All students feel welcomed, and one very apparent display is the bonding with their teachers, and the friendships that develop between students. For the first time, the child, teen, or young adult may feel like this is somewhere they truly belong – this is THEIR place with THEIR peers and the senior students they look up to. It is a special environment where, confidence, discipline and focus continues to grow.
The Focus Challenges
- It’s been proven that kids can lose their attention when doing things that they feel are too hard for them. Acknowledgement of the smaller parts of the task goes a long way to encourage them and their progress.
- Kids can often feel overwhelmed if they have to look at the big picture instead of elements or components of it. Cleaning up their entire room may be too much to consider – but splitting the tasks into individual items is easier for them to feel is doable.
- TV and screen time can diminish a child’s attention span. Limiting it to an hour per day has shown benefits.
- Any mental health issues can compromise a kid’s focus. Anxiety, sadness, and anger can all be negative things. Having a positive outlet and encouraging the child to express their feelings will certainly help.
At Tiger Schulmann’s we know what we can do to make a difference. And we have had much success doing it. Our experienced instructors know how to get kids to change for the better. The study of martial arts, and the timeline of the training process creates a path to an increased ability to focus, one that expands incrementally over time. Combine that with our instructors knowing what makes a kid tick, how they think, and what they need to flourish. At the same time, they relate to every student as young person who is a unique individual. They know how to connect with your child. The results will be obvious.
When Kids Learn to Focus
- Overall attitude changes for the better.
- Concentration increases.
- There is new ongoing enjoyment from accomplishing things that used to be struggles.
- Better grades will result.
- Parents become thrilled with the apparent changes.
Kids will feel more in control, and better able to choose to be calm in situations that require that behavior: the restaurant, the place of worship, the waiting room, the classroom, the long car ride, the dinner table.
