To get better information on "abacus", please watch this video first.

Each movies are just a sample. Outcome will be different with each students.

Abacus is a Japanese traditional calculator, with which you can calculate addition,subtraction, multiplication and division quickly.
There are two good things through learning abacus.
One is to enable you to do a quick mental calculation and the other is to enhance braindevelopment.



To be able to do a quick mental calculation

As you see in the video, you can do a quick mental calculation after the practicing abacus because you learn "Abacus- based mental calculation" at the same time.
It's a method that you use imaginary abacus in your mind and calculate.
The person in the video is using this skill.
In other words, if you don't learn abacus you'll never learn this either.
You actually touch imaginary abacus in your mind and calculate just like you have a real abacus in your hands. We call this technique "Anzan(mental calculation in Japanese)"


Good for the brain development

Let me talk about human brain a little. It's said that in the human brain the left and right sides have different functions.
It's believed that the right hemisphere is used as recognizing images, graphics, music and facial expressions. It mainly controls total visual information and intuitive feelings.
On the other hand, the left hemisphere controls logical thinking, language, conversation,concept, calculation, recognizing sounds.
According to the interpretation above, you're using your left hemisphere to do the calculation.
However we use right hemisphere to learn "Abacus-based mental calculation" in our school.
We have imaginary abacus beads in our mind and move them to calculate just like we use a real abacus.

We image an abacus in our back of the right hemisphere.
It's easier for younger children to have this image.
The more you learn "Abacus-based mental calculation" the more you use your right hemisphere and that's how it's good for the brain development.
Isn' t it amazing that you can use your right hemisphere for the calculation ONLY when you learn Anzan-Abacus-Based mental calculation?


To Study SOROBAN

The best age to start abacus is under ten years old. Adults cannot learn as well as children.
Thus, learning abacus help your brain develop and train your calculation ability and concentration.
It's not easy and it all depends on individual effort to master it.
We think in Japan you need at least 3 years to reach such level as to be able to use the mental calculation skill in your actual life. Anyone can get the skill as long as they do the best.
Our goal is to increase the number of people who use this skill all over the world.
