What`s Happening @ Tactical Martial Arts

Hello Everyone!

We hope everyone is doing well during this challenging time, but this too shall pass! We just wanted to get everyone up to date on what is going on here at the school and our current “game plan”.

CLASSES

We have been teaching classes virtually since mid March and after much trial and error, we have began using Zoom vs. Facebook Live and You Tube. Reason being, is that with Zoom, we do not experience the delays and sometimes  getting booted offline as we did with the lives, which was becoming rather problematic for all of us, especially the students trying to learn new material. Also, with Zoom, if you are not able to get onto the class at that time, we can send out a recording of the meetings, so sort of like with You Tube, you can watch it on your own time. Best of both worlds right? We currently have a schedule of teaching virtual classes Tuesday- Thursday, classes are broken down like they are on our regular schedule. We have Tiny Tigers, Karate For Kids, Adult Taekwondo and Krav Maga offered during various times throughout the day.

 

On the week of April 27th, we began allowing up to six students to attend in house classes here at Tactical Martial Arts during various class times as well. We are using extreme caution by social distancing and continuing to thoroughly sanitize all surfaces prior, during and after every class. As well as  checking temperatures of every individual that enters the building and making sure students are sanitizing their equipment prior to each class. We are also offering private lessons where students can either come into the facility prior to classes or virtually and work individually with an instructor, this is proving to be successful as well.

 

We plan to continue offering all three class options (virtual, in facility and private lessons) until at least the beginning of June. We will send out updates are changes occur.

 

We are currently sending out the links for both in facility and virtual classes to all students on Wednesday the week prior to the classes.

Example, today is 5/6/2020, we just emailed the links for the week of May 11.

 

Unsure about joining us? Register NOW for a 5 Class Trial for JUST $25.00. This is valid for Tiny Tigers, Karate for Kids, Adult Taekwondo and Krav Maga programs!

Offer Valid Through May 15th

The Importance of Developing a Child’s Focus

One of the most common problems that many children have is in focusing on particular tasks for long periods of time. Developing memory, focus, and attention spans when a child is between the ages of three and five is very important. As a parent or a pre-school teacher, one has to constantly monitor and observe a child, to deduce whether he or she is adequately developing these skills. Doing so will ensure that in the future, when a child is required to deal with large tasks and projects, he or she will be able to “apply” the mind for longer periods of time and yield greater results. Structured, enjoyable activities such as pre-school karate help children learn to focus on the task at hand.

Effects of Technology

Some experts have concluded that the reason why many children today have trouble focusing on tasks for long periods is due to a ‘glancing culture’ that has proliferated as technology
has advanced. The ways in which they interact with digital media have by and large reduced their ability to focus on ordinary or repetitive tasks, and to persevere through less stimulating activities like studying. Video games and social media like Facebook and Twitter can be entertaining and educational, but aside from specific applications, they generally do not assist with cognitive development in a child. In the past, children were encouraged to play games that build cognition among other skills, but that trend has diminished across the United States.

The ability to focus on a particular task, project, or lesson has a direct bearing on the amount of information a growing child can retain and later apply. The capacity to filter out irrelevant distraction and tune oneself to a particular project helps develop self-control in a child as well.

(Good and Consistent) Practice Makes Perfect

Developing a child’s focus is like developing any kind of muscle in the body. More than anything, it takes a whole lot of practice! Parents and pre-school teachers are advised to schedule tasks and activities that help develop a child’s mental faculties. In certain cases, this may be as simple as scheduling time slots where children are required to play particular cognition-building games such as puzzles, riddles, brainteasers, and so on. Some experts believe that even a few moments of silent meditation can do wonders for developing a child’s ability to focus.

While it is extremely important to ensure that children are integrating skills that allow them to focus, one should also keep in mind that they may get exhausted from time to time as well. As a parent or a pre-school teacher, one should regularly schedule breaks where children can relax and rejuvenate both body and mind between tasks.
