For children with special needs, the benefits of martial arts can be invaluable. Consistency and repetition are key - repetition of the same location, same faces, same curriculum, and knowing what to expect are the process to help them succeed. With continuous structure and fun exercises, even the child with multisensory issues can rise to the occasion. Adding a traditional martial arts program to a child's existing therapies can only assist them in reaching their goals faster.
