Episode Notes

Tim McCarthy has a Master’s Degree in Education and a Grandmaster rank in the martial arts. He has combined his years of experience as a classroom teacher and administrator (in both public and private schools) with even more years of experience teaching and developing martial arts programs to create a simple plan for the education of children. He has spent years researching developmental child psychology, chosen the best studies, and distilled them into simple, understandable language. He then drew on his vast knowledge of activities that help children become stronger physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, and arranged them according to the capabilities of children at each age.

His unique perspective combining Eastern and Western educational philosophy creates a powerful road map for raising balanced children in an increasingly unbalanced world.
