For confidence, focus, and achieving anti-bullying tactics 100% Agree! And for anyone who has any questions feel free to ask. This is where Lila studies martial arts. She has been here for over 2 years now and as a parent I checked out about 4 other schools before deciding on this one. Very happy with our decision and Lila Loves it here!

Master Chris and the entire team are wonderful to work with. They really took the time to get to know our little guy. His concentration and focus have really improved over the last few months and his behavior at school has improved as well. Definetly worth the investment.

Couldn't be happier with the training my daughter has received. She has learned so much! Most don't realize that besides the physical part there are so many mental aspects and life lessons that she has learned. The leadership abilities and confidence she has learned is something she could have never learned at this age. I am beyond thankful to Master Chris for everything we have and will continue to learn from the program!

It's always hard finding the right place that your child fits in to. We have had nothing but amazing experiences here, and my son (5 yrs) loves it! We started in the fall, and he looks forward to every class. The staff is amazing, and knows how to work well with children which is hard to find sometimes. They learn a lot of life lessons, respect, discipline, as well as self defense. We are so glad we came here!

Childhood Brain Training at Inspire Martial Arts in North Royalton

The learning process is vital to the healthy development of a child’s brain and their experiences and interactions largely influence how this happens. This process doesn’t just take place in the classroom but in all areas of the child’s life.

Because of this, learning is better approached when it is an active process that triggers the appropriate areas of the brain. By utilizing this method, learning becomes more exciting and therefore, more beneficial to brain development and ultimately increasing intelligence.

The brain is the command center for the body.

When a baby is born, it has all the brain cells it will have for its entire life. The early years of a child’s life are most important to the development of the neural connections between these cells, which helps the brain grow and mature.

Utilizing working memory in order to assist in making these connections will lead to quicker increases in brain development and intelligence.  Working or active memory is the ability to keep information in the brain for a short period of time in order to solve a problem.

This generally happens in the frontal lobe of the brain, a part that is not as developed in younger children. However, when children are taught with methods that make use of their active memory, their brain makes many neural connections that help with development. It’s a workout for the brain.

And even better, is that through this type of training, fluid Intelligence is nurtured so a child’s ability to use logic and reasoning to solve problems or analyze new situations becomes more developed.

After years of research , Chris Gehring created the Inspier martial arts program so that it would target development.

As the final step in creating this innovative curriculum, the teaching procedure was created. This includes using active learning and working memory to develop the neural connections in the brain, therefore fostering fluid intelligence. By teaching this way, the program maximizes learning in the students.

This groundbreaking approach to teaching martial arts encompasses a process that is like no other.

After the students have warmed up the instructor delivers a short mat chat that discusses the details of the skill of the day. This initiates active learning, which gets the neurons in the brain to start activating. The students then participate in a game-based learning drill related to the skill and this stimulates their working memory and, therefore, creates new connections in the brain. The final step is testing for a Inspire-stripe, which fosters fluid intelligence and their ability to retain information more efficiently.

When children are young it is vital that their brains are stimulated in a way that creates more neural connections. Involving them in programs that have this type of brain-training is essential. By participating in programs like this, children develop better working memory and their ability to reason and logic, when presented with novel situations, is improved.
