Movement: Reducing the Effects of Sitting

In today’s digital age, the convenience of technology has transformed our daily routines, offering unparalleled ease in how we work, shop, and entertain ourselves. This modern lifestyle, however, comes with its drawbacks, primarily the increase in sedentary behavior. This trend is not just affecting adults but our children too, exposing them to a myriad of health issues once thought to be adult concerns.

The human body thrives on movement. Prolonged sitting can lead to significant health complications such as heart disease, obesity, and poor posture, alongside neck and back pain. For children, who are now spending considerable time glued to screens, the stakes are even higher. Beyond physical ailments, the lack of movement adversely impacts their mental health, concentration, and even spatial awareness due to an underdeveloped vestibular system.

Fortunately, the remedy is as simple as it is effective: movement. Regular physical activity enhances blood circulation, fosters new brain cell growth, and revitalizes our entire system. For children, integrating movement throughout the day is crucial. This can be as straightforward as taking stretch breaks in the classroom, encouraging active play during recess, or parents limiting screen time in favor of more engaging physical activities like family walks or sports.

The SKILLZ Child Development Centers offer a structured solution to this modern dilemma. Through specialized classes, they focus on developing both the physical and mental faculties of children. These sessions not only aid in physical development but also support cognitive growth by stimulating brain chemistry in positive ways. Furthermore, the Parent SKILLZ program offers invaluable tips for fostering a healthy, active lifestyle at home, emphasizing the importance of parental involvement and role modeling in establishing lifelong healthy habits.

As we navigate the conveniences of modern technology, it’s imperative to remember the basics of human physiology. Our bodies and minds are intrinsically linked to movement. By embracing a more active lifestyle and instilling these values in our children, we safeguard their health and ensure a foundation for lifelong well-being.

Basic SKILLZ
1st Grade - 3rd Grade

It's often easy for teachers and parents to overestimate 5-6 year old children. They're better at following directions and paying attention than younger children, but they still need some help controlling themselves and focusing on tasks.

Core SKILLZ
3rd Grade - 5th Grade

Children are like sponges. They absorb things quickly and easily - far more easily than we do as adults. Not only are they getting healthier as they learn martial arts, but they're also learning the value of self-discipline and respect.

Teens Karate
High School Program

Instead of giving into the moodiness and attitude, take them to our dojo instead! Teenagers are smart and capable - but they can also be their own worst enemies.

But all they need is an outlet for their frustrations - and an opportunity to be their best.- DISCOVER -
