The TEDxUCLA Community is welcome to finally experience 'Cognitive Kali' at the World Famous Pauley Pavilion Arena Floor on June 3rd at 3:30pm.

This unique experience is provided free of charge by the UCLA Martial Arts Program;
At the 2016 TEDxUCLA Main event Paul McCarthy introduced the idea behind 'Cognitive Kali', an interactive physical based program that he hypothesized could potentially help individuals with alzheimers, dementia, any mild cognitive impairment and even victims of traumatic brain injuries. With the help of neuroscientists around the world (including Dr. Sean Mullen, 2018 symposium presenter!) he has developed a method of teaching physical activity using 'Kali', a Filipino martial arts that emphasizes; hand to eye coordination, bi and quad manual movement, reaction time, mid line crossing, rhythmic motions to create a pedagogical approach that ensures the participant is always progressively moving towards more complex movements. This program engages the mind while activating the body for a wellness benefit that could hit two birds with one stone! Check out his team below that were part of the 2016 talk and will be assisting with this Adventure for the TEDxUCLA Family!
