SYUZANDO

In the Japanese and other Asian cultures, the concept of DO (pronounced ‘doh’) represents the ability to persevere and is taught through many activities.

Life is filled with many challenges, and children who learn skills to overcome them are better prepared for the future. Sports, music and other lessons teach these skills and instill an instinct to persevere and work through things that others believe are too hard or challenging.

  • Judo
  • Kendo
  • Taekwando
  • Kado (flower arrangement)
  • Sado (tea ceremony)

…and in Abacus – Syuzando (syoo-zahn-doh).

When JAMS students apply DO to their classes, and with the support of their parents to not give up and follow through the challenges they experience, they will not only benefit in terms of math skills, but life skills as well.

We’re equally proud of our many alumni who have gone on to big things in academics, as well as students who have overcome struggles with math and other learning challenges. As with sport or martial arts, not every student goes on to win awards and acclaim. But students who learn and apply DO go forward with a stronger ability to meet and overcome life’s challenges.
