The SKILLZ Needs for Successful Learning

This program was designed specifically for children and adults with many types of special abilities. The program introduces specialized skill-based training for athletes who have limited physical, intellectual, social, and emotional abilities. With that said, more emphasis is placed on building fundamental skills training with a strategic balance of Martial Arts.

The best part of our Special Abilities Skillz program is the physical, intellectual, and emotional growth that you will see which will provide the skills preparing them to thrive in the future.

Special Abilities Skillz Martial Arts

We cover one of the 8 core skillz per class and each class includes:

  • Warm up exercises.
  • A mat chat about the skill being taught.
  • 2 to 3 skill building drills.
  • Students will then demonstrate the skill.
  • Learned to earn their skill stripe.

Students must earn all 8 skill-stripes in order to graduate to the next belt level. once they earn their next belt they will continue to run through all 8 skillz earning skillz-strips by completing a more challenging curriculum as they advance to the next rank. after they successfully complete all 9 belt ranks in the program, students will graduate into one of our traditional martial arts programs.

requirements for the 8 core skillz

  • Awareness: Duck under targets swung at them to build spatial awareness and understanding of the correlation between a moving object and themselves while processing speed and movement of other objects.
  • Detailing: Demonstrate proper punches while applying fine motor skills in a simple manner to make it easier to eventually process more intricate movements.
  • Observing: Name techniques demonstrated by the instructor to build the ability to maintain longer than normal eye contact to develop increased focus and attention span.
  • Listening: Demonstrate punches on the beat of a metronome to correlate sounds with the timing of their punches to learn to pick up on and process audio cues.
  • Communication: Explain how to do 1 of the techniques they have learned so they can better communicate with their peers and instructors more effectively and using their own words.
  • Rentention: Perform 3 basic blocks and strikes called out by the instructor to practice retaining information and building long term memory and leading to a better understanding of the technique.
  • Durability: Perform simple static warm-ups to increase muscle tone throughout the upper and lower body, as well as, in their core.
  • Determination: Students will break boards to help them to learn to be more comfortable with the sensations, sounds, and emotions associated with breaking boards.
