NICU and Autism: How Martial Arts Helps to Cope

NICU and Autism: How Martial Arts Helps to Cope




There is nothing more fabulous and wonderful than being the proud parents of your tiny bundle of joy. However, if you have reached this page looking up NICU, perhaps your journey wasn’t all that easy for you. Perhaps you have experienced the nightmare of having your little one in the NICU or witnessing a loved one going through the experience of neonatal complications. If you are here seeking help for yourself and your loved ones who experienced an NICU situation, it is important to know that with right care and support, things can be made alright.

Premature Birth and the NICU Experience: Causes and Consequences
Babies are usually admitted to an NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) if they are born without completing minimum healthy gestation period, which is 37 months. Though babies with complicated health conditions are also admitted to NICU, usually premature births are the most common reason. Data indicates that premature births are much more common than they are usually thought to be – according to CDC, one in every ten babies in US are born premature.

There are a number of factors that might lead to premature birth. Some of them, like tobacco, alcohol and drug use perhaps are those we can try to avoid. Most of them, however, are beyond our control – ranging from health conditions and complications in conception to personal history and infections. A better way to avoid neonatal complication is to check for the symptoms ranging from bleeding and spotting to backaches and diarrhea and do the regular checkups. 

However, if you unfortunately find your baby having to go through the NICU, the most relevant question that needs to be asked is of coping. Coping is not just about the experience - about praying your baby to turn out a fighter and not lose your strength of mind seeing your child’s suffering. It is also about preparing yourselves to face the long-term consequences. In the words of Linda C., the popular blogger who writes about her NICU experience at http://www.nicumama.com/, one cannot ever be sure if they ever survive the NICU. Linda’s own journey started in 2001, when her son was born premature, with severe health conditions. He had to undergo NICU, had to move in and out of the ventilator, even undergoing a tracheostomy and using a g-tube early in life. Though the family survived, the experience left the child with a complex medical history including autism. Though everyone’s experience may not result in complex medical consequences, it is important to know that it could happen.

Coping through Martial Arts: How Does it Help
Consequences of NICU include an increased chance for the baby to develop autism, and other medical complications. Though professional medical help is the most important, alternate healing methods like martial arts can help to cope with a situation like NICU. Martial art helps kids in the autistic spectrum to resolve physical, psychological, social and behavioral challenges, thus improving their life. Bruce McCorry’s Academy, where Linda’s sister, Sandra (Miss Sandra) is an instructor, has a history of helping kids with autism to lead quality lives. Parents of the NICU baby too can use martial arts to manage stress and negative thoughts. A number of regular martial arts and energy healing can help in this. Martial arts may not make everything alright, but it sure might help you to cope better.

Bruce McCorry’s Martial Arts Lessons for Kids: The Stepping Stone to Success in Sports

For many parents, training their kids for sports is the same as making them practice just one specific sport at hand. However, to make your kids sport champs, what you need is a broader strategy that makes them physically stronger and mentally prepared. Sculpting the right physique, sharpening the right senses, and cultivating the right mindset is the key to success in any sports.

There was one time when autism was not a widely discussed topic in parenting circles. Fortunately for millions of children out there, this situation has changed with increased awareness regarding the condition. Today’s parents know about and discuss autism. With the right kind of diagnosis, help and training, many kids in the autistic spectrum are able to live better lives today. April being the National Autism Awareness Month, it is important to bring the nation’s attention to the cutting edge research going on in different fields that can help autistic kids. This article familiarises how martial arts are proven to be one of the most helpful activities for autistic children. Coupled with proper diagnosis and professional help, martial art can aid children in the autistic spectrum to lead better lives.

The 21st Century Solution: Martial Arts for Children with Autism
We are in 2018, and our knowledge of the physiological, neurological and psychological facets of autism has improved a lot, which means that now it is possible to think of new and unconventional help strategies for autism. Martial art is one among these.


  • Many children within the autistic spectrum repeat behavioural loops, develop physical symptoms, and most commonly, remain socially inept. A landmark study in the University of Wisconsin-Lacrosse proved that martial art learners with autism showed remarkable improvement in physical and social skills compared to those who do not train in martial arts.
  • In 2016, F. Bahrami of Isfahan University elucidated through research that communication and social abilities in autistic kids can be improved through the teaching of Karate.
  • In 2016, Y. Kim et al, who pursued research on Taekwondo, came to the conclusion that physical balance and coordination improve in autistic kids who are Taekwondo learners.
  • Paul Zehr, writing in 2017, noted that repetitive behaviour, which is a commonly shared trait among kids who fall at different spots in the autistic spectrum, can be cured through structured martial arts lessons.
  • More than one study has noted how kids with ADHD can be helped through martial arts. Kids with ADHD remain hyperactive and find it difficult to focus their attention on the task at hand. Training in martial arts is shown to improve focus and help hyperactivity in them.
  • Visualizing is one martial arts strategy that helps autistic kids. Autistic children who have difficulty in organizing and executing the whole picture of an idea can get help with the visualizing techniques used in many martial arts.


Bruce McCorry’s Academy: Quality Martial Arts For those with Special Needs

Children in the autistic spectrum need not just a martial art school, but a caring martial art school where they will get individual attention and the right martial art solution for their specific problem. This is why Bruce McCorry’s Academy (Peabody, MA) becomes different when it comes to kids with autism. Academy has a special needs program uniquely designed to help children with conditions similar to autism, and hundreds of children have benefitted from the program over years. At Bruce McCorry’s, we teach martial arts with the realization that it is surely not the once-and-for-all cure for autism. Nevertheless, we move forward with the belief that every child is entitled to an equal and normal life, and martial arts is one way of helping autistic kids to claim their share of quality life.
