Weekly SuperKid Game Lessons

In the SuperKid Game, students take on challenges in mindfulness and Tai Chi to collect coins, keys, gems, and other treasures that reflect their new levels of mastery.

More advanced SuperKid Game lessons focus on the practice of resilience, responsiveness, and better info (awareness + understanding) for better action, including:

  • Tuishou, or Tai Chi "sensing hands," which has trained warriors in awareness and responsiveness for hundreds of years

  • Meditation and heart-rate variability biofeedback

  • Journaling and discussion inspired by our discovery series textbooks on relaxation, mindfulness, and optimal action

  • Semester-long focuses, including our “Defense Against the Dark Arts” Stress-Resilience intensives and The Art of Learning Project themes

  • Our Being Your Best Summit where SuperKids can ask top performers about their pursuit of excellence and mental preparation

These SuperKid Game lessons (with opportunities for extensive 1-on-1 coaching) are essential for helping children dig deeper into their learning experience.

Weekly SuperKid Tai Chi class - Level I, II, III

SuperKid Tai Chi students develop confidence in themselves and what they can do. They know that doing your best is a journey and an adventure of discovery.

Level 1 -

  • Tales from the Hero-Warrior Training: Book I motivate mindfulness practices as a series of martial art adventures and scientific discoveries.

  • Students then apply the skills of mindful relaxation (or wuwei) to the practice of traditional Chen-Style Tai Chi form.

  • Through challenges that demonstrate the power of Tai Chi as an internal martial art, children can discover for themselves the power of meditation -- they can see the results!

Level 2 -

  • The adventure continues as the hero-warriors in-training learn about optimal performance in Book II

  • Practice of the 46-move Wuwei Fan Form, as "sword junior" preparation

Level 3 -

  • Deepening the practice of Tai Chi Chen-style barehand form as a "moving meditation," while tripling students' repertoire of moves.

  • Book III of Hero-Warrior Training on stress-reduction and emotional resilience

These classes lay the foundation of practice for future refinement of awareness and skill. SuperKids at the Academy are doing Tai Chi twice a week all through the academic year—a commitment of about 10+ hours every month.
