Over the 18 months my son has participated in the program, not only has his strength and overall physical condition significantly improved, his tactile sensitivity has diminished (he can tolerate his feet being bare), and some of his repetitive behaviors have diminished as well. The structured progression of TKD really appeals to his need for order and the mental challenges are exciting for him to master. The desire to live up to Master Chasse’s expectations have also led to improved focus on school work. I’m very glad to have this added positive influence as my son enters the critical middle school years. The travel from out of town to participate in this great program is well worth it.
