As an inclusive martial arts school, Ko Martial Arts is committed to helping students of all abilities find healthier and happier versions of themselves. We know that the physical, social, and emotional learning is a major contributor to a child's wellbeing. We sat down with Cassidi Jobe, owner of We Rock the Spectrum Gym KC, to discuss what inclusion looks like for children with developmental differences and to hear their personal journey to find community-based facilities that allowed our children to play with their peers and have their unique sensory needs fulfilled.
We are honored to be able to support organizations like We Rock the Spectrum Gym to create communities where children with and without disabilities can engage, learn, and play in an environment where they feel included and valued.
In a world where everyone—kids included—are being inundated with the call of instant gratification, we must teach them that delayed gratification is a more satisfying, character-building gratification.
