Our Tigers program is designed to build strength, confidence, and coordination in martial arts skills. We encourage this growth through a play-based curriculum so students are motivated to learn in the most natural way possible.
Tigers learn the basics of self-defense; how to strike with focused power, how to be strong in a stance, and how to escape common holds. They also learn our basic verbal self-defense techniques. They learn how to intelligently use their bodies, and build up strength and flexibility. Students are taught our core character attributes: Honesty, Courage, Self-Discipline, Empathy, Respect, Confidence, and Focus.
We teach these traits by talking through real-life scenarios that are applicable to their age. For example, how to treat your parents with respect, how to have empathy for their peers, or how to stay disciplined with your chores. These are the attributes of a black belt, and so they are every bit a part of our curriculum as the kicks and techniques.
