THE STORY:

As a general pediatrician, I am frequently asked by parents of children with ADHD for alternatives to treatment with medicine.  These children either cannot or do not want to deal with the side effects of medication.  For years, I have been looking for ways to help these children and their families.  And then one day I stumbled upon Taekwondo…

It happened when a patient of mine who couldn't tolerate ADHD medications told me that Taekwondo had helped her to control her symptoms.  The girl’s mother and teachers raved about the improvements they had witnessed.  They told me about Master Dan Vigil’s "Life and Character Skills Martial Arts" program and how it had helped other children with ADHD that they knew.

I immediately wondered – could this be something that might help my other patients?  Later that week I called Master Dan and asked him if he might be interested in studying his program for children with ADHD --- Dan agreed and the Martials Arts as ADD/ADHD Treatment Trial (aka the MAAT Trial) was born!

We need your help to get the MAAT project off the ground and study whether Taekwondo can help more children with ADHD!

As someone with ADD (diagnosed at age 33) and a person who has trained in Taekwondo prior to diagnosis, and now in Shaolin Kung Fu also, I have personally found benefit from martial arts training. As a medical professional and skeptic, I would love to know if the connection is real or placebo. I hope it is real, but would like to know either way. 2 years ago
