    We adapted the lesson plans for the students to fit their learning styles, but also because the class consisted of students at different martial art skill level. As the classes continued, the students increased their martial art skill level. Another gain was noted throughout the course of the program, in that the students had become a close group of friends. These friendships created a fun and relaxed atmosphere, which allowed for focused learning that was not possible for these children in the mainstream program.

In partnership with MAMBEC, we've developed the ADAPTS 360 program. It is a Martial Art program that uses Adaptive Development and Parent Teaching System with a 360 degree approach. It involves every party, children, parents, and instructors in giving and receiving feedback. This is our pilot project in providing a recreational and educational program for children with challenges. Coaching and training for the children is facilitated by Black Belt Coaches using instruction developed specifically for these children. The ADAPTS program provides techniques with an integrated team to ensure professionalism and achieve our goals.
