The scientific fact of using " squats " as punishment in the school

The Scientific Reason Behind The 'Ketuk Ketampi' Punishment

Remember the ‘good’ old school punishments - holding the earlobes with arms crossed over your chest, bend the knees to sit and then stand repeated times until your teacher ask you to stop!

In Malaysia, it’s known as ‘Ketuk Ketampi!’

Ever thought why the school teachers would give this unique punishment? There is a reason behind it!

This form of punishment has been in practice for centuries and was given to the students who were weak in their studies. 

Talking about the logic behind this punishment, it is very interesting to know that this particular posture increases the blood flow to the memory cells in brain. 

It also synchronises both sides of the brain to improve neural function. It stimulates neural pathways via acupressure points in the earlobe, sharpens intelligence. This helps those with autism, asperger’s syndrome, learning difficulties and behavioural problems.

This is the ancient method of increasing memory power and the Europeans are now using this very diligently. They are recommending this posture or exercise to treat many cases.
