Kids & Teen Martial Arts
We offer programs for pre-school, elementary, middle, and early high school students. These Tiger-Cub, Junior, and Teen Programs feature martial arts and life skills lessons designed for each age group.
The Tiger-Rock advantage means that your child builds so many positive character traits at Tiger-Rock and increases physical ability too! Tiger-Rock Martial Arts physically and mentally challenges each student to become the best all-around person they can be, through skill-building in martial arts.
Fitness: Our programs teach a variety of martial arts concepts and maneuvers. Grappling, striking, and strength training are all involved in the learning process, helping students become healthy and develop physically. Kids of all ages develop stamina, balance, agility, coordination, and cardiovascular fitness through our martial arts classes.
Conflict Resolution and Bullying Prevention: Another more physical component of Tiger-Rock martial arts is learning self-defense techniques to decrease bullying incidents. The main theory is always that verbal conflict resolution is the best method for solving a problem! Thus, our Kids Program teaches other bullying deflection techniques such as confident body language, awareness of surroundings, and walking away when appropriate.
Social Skills: Learning to connect with others through communication, eye contact, politeness, and conversation is something Tiger-Rock strives for. Through effective and assertive communication, kids of all ages experience the success of being able to make new friends with the common ground of martial arts. Another necessary component of a successful Martial Arts class is cooperation and teamwork amongst participants and with instructors. We’re all in this together, and we hope your child will enjoy being a part of our family!
Discipline and Responsibility: All ages practice discipline by attending classes regularly and focusing during classes. Intense focus is required for the practice and performance of the intricate maneuvers taught in Tiger-Rock classes. They’ll love how it feels to master a maneuver due to their application of discipline and practice! All ages develop in responsibility through making their own decisions without authority, along with the accountability of their choices during our classes.
Self-Esteem and Confidence: Practicing self-care and respect for others are important concepts in martial arts. All ages can benefit from the empowerment that comes from learning self-defense (both verbally and physically) and intuition development. Confidence is also built through competitions, by moving up in belts, and completing difficult and new maneuvers. Your child learns to feel comfortable in his/her own skin!
