Neuron-DoŽ - Integrating Physical Movements with Learning

Neuron-DoŽ is a new style of Tae Kwon Do which integrates physical movements with cognitive strategies through martial arts instruction. Martial Arts have been known to help students with various needs ranging from physical, emotional, behavioral, and cognitive. Neuron-DoŽ offers a way to understand and approach these issues. However, the best way to learn Neuron-DoŽ is to experience it for yourself. 

Led by the creator of Neuron-DoŽ, Dr. Douglas DeMassa, this lecture will have you participate in an introductory class with explanations and reasoning behind the movements learned. Please note that though this is an active lecture, those that are not able to fully participate in the movements will still benefit from the knowledge gained through observation. The idea behind Neuron-DoŽ is that it is adaptable to all abilities and ages.

Dr. Douglas DeMassa is a 4th degree Black Belt and the creator of Neuron-DoŽ. He has been training in Martial Arts since he was seven years old and has been teaching martial arts since 1995. Dr. DeMassa is a Doctor of Chiropractic, has a Masters in Nutrition, a Bachelor of Science in Sports Biology, and over 300 hours in post-graduate education in Chiropractic Neurology with a post-doctoral qualification in the treatment of ADHD, learning disabilities, and behavioral disorders. Dr. DeMassa is also an Adjunct Professor at the University of Bridgeport-College of Chiropractic for the Maternal and Child Health course as well as an instructor for the International Chiropractic Association Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics in which he has lectured in Montreal, Canada; Sydney and Melbourne, Australia, and Bournemouth, UK.
