Founder's Welcome

Tennis-Certificate

Dear parents,

How would it feel if you could grow up once again, learning about the world, alongside your children? In a way, we all do this, as parents, but what if we could really see it through their eyes, experience the same wonder and be in awe with every new thing discovered?

My name is Mircea Cojocaru and our mission is to create and deliver professional extra-curricular sports programs for cognitive & character development in Hong Kong.

At our professionally-designed sports classes we offer child-centred education. We serve and support children by helping them uncover latent needs, behaviours, and desires through reflection and dialog. We listen before we speak, we search for meaning before we judge. We help children develop their ability to think, have a voice, make a difference, discover their spark while engaging in the sports activity they love. Using methodologies such as action-reflection learning, thinking methods and video analysis, we make learning fun and enjoyable.  We guide each student on a journey toward becoming a mindful leader, an idea & thought creator, a decision maker.

We promise to nurture every child’s potential and help him become aware of the numerous possibilities s/he can discover inside oneself and further develop.

Why learn thinking methods?

Sports-Thinking

Thinking methods help children develop the ability to respond and manage emotions while building the  fundament for fuelling creativity, rationality and empathy.

Thinking methods train children’s minds ability’s to:

  • process information’s
  • analyse benefits and risks
  • understand emotions and influence self-esteem.
  • embrace change
  • create possibilities, choices and
  • conclude

By doing so participants will create a beautiful mind free of confusion and stress.

Why learning through sports?

Thinking-methods

Sports influences learning directly, science has proven that the brain ability to learn is at the maximum capacity when you are in the recovery phase after a period of high-intensity exercise. Adding exercise to your lifestyle sparks your brain function to improve learning on three levels:

  • First, it improves mind’s alertness, attention,  mood, and motivation.
  • Second, sports makes you a better learner as it prepares and encourages nerve cells to bind to one another, which is the cellular basis for logging in new information.
  • Third, it spurs the development of new nerve cells from stem cells in the hippocampus which improves your long therm memory.

Here is what  John J. Ratey, MD, an Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School  has to say about exercise and sport:
“Exercise increases levels of serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine — important neurotransmitters that traffic in thoughts and emotions. You’ve probably heard of serotonin, and maybe you know that a lack of it is associated with depression.

What you may not know is that toxic levels of stress erode the connections between the billions of nerve cells in the brain, or that chronic depression shrinks certain areas of the brain.

Conversely, exercise unleashes a cascade of neurochemicals and growth factors that can reverse this process, physically bolstering the brain’s infrastructure. In fact, the brain responds like muscles do, growing with use, withering with inactivity. The neurons in the brain connect to one another through “leaves” on treelike branches, and exercise causes those branches to grow and bloom with new buds, thus enhancing brain function at a fundamental level.”
