How Does Martial Arts Complement Play Therapy?

Matt Canale, LCP, Synergetic Play Therapist and recent Black Belt in Jiu-Jitsu answers the question: "How Does Martial Arts Complement Play Therapy?"
Matt explains how skills learned in Jiu-Jitsu can help your child integrate and practice the skills they are learning in the playroom. Specifically, Matt recommends Jiu-Jitsu to children struggling with self-esteem and anxiety issues. Jiu-Jitsu can integrate skills being learned in the playroom such as regulation, problem solving, attuning to another person and how to meet challenges.
