Developing martial arts programs for not just schools, but for educational systems across the world.
You are right, Paul. In addition to providing an outlet for physical activity, martial arts also fosters many other important skills. Specifically, the traditional practicing of martial arts by children has been shown to improve executive functioning skills. Executive functioning consists of a variety of cognitive abilities, including problem solving, impulse control, working memory, and attention, among others.

A well-worthy read! http://www.sciencemag.org/content/333/6045/959.full http://www.sciencemag.org/content/333/6045/959.full.pdf Cheers! Janice
