Syuzando – A Life Skill
In Abacus, Syuzando is something that students will benefit from well beyond math skills…
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.
In the Japanese and other Asian cultures, the concept of DO (pronounced ‘doh’) represents the ability to persevere and is taught through many activities.
- 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.

From Our Parents & Students...
Max is relatively new to the abacus world. He is a vivacious young man that has many abilities we are trying to tap and mold. Sensei has tapped into his number sense and is showing him the numerical pathways to learning. He has made several comments about abacus helping him understand his school math, and in fact making it quite easy. It has also given him a confidence around others that surpasses his sisters. He is eager to show his anzan and abacus calculating skills to his friends, his sister’s friends, and almost anyone that will allow him the time. -- Kelly & Erin Wheeldon
