Tae Kwon Do and Autism
I know, I know,we all know about sensory integration dysfunctions and the benefits of TKD - getting that corpus collosum to work better. Leo just passed his test for "high red". He's very proud of himself! Most impressive to me, is Leo's ability to perform the required "form" - a series of moves (I think at least 10?); lots of chops, and kicks from all sides of the body - front to back to side and so on. How can his brain memorize and then RECALL this sequence? I have no clue. It's just pretty amazing, especially in 90 degree "weather" in the studio. Mom can brag sometimes, can't she?
