Martial arts offers benefits at every age

Younger students build motor skills with the symmetrical movements they learn in class. Plus, they learn the value of listening and following directions. As a result, they will become more disciplined and better behaved.

Elementary and middle school students will build character, learn self-discipline, and pick up better habits with martial arts. Moreover, they will learn how to defend and protect themselves from bullies and strangers. In addition, we teach accountability and respect.

For high school students, we teach self-defense, self-discipline, and respect for authority. At the same time, we instill values of leadership and good citizenship. These are tomorrow’s leaders—and we want to do our part to prepare them for the road ahead.

Adults will enjoy a great workout, stress relief, and renewed physical fitness and mental keenness. By training at Tiger-Rock Martial Arts, adult martial artists will enrich their lives in ways they could have never expected.

Grow your focus; build your confidence

You will become more focused & confident.

In our classes, we go one step at a time. Martial arts involves a great deal of repetition. Not only will you improve your motor function, but you’ll sharpen your mental focus. It takes great concentration to perform many of our techniques. That’s why martial artists are typically second to none when it comes to focus. In fact, you’ll start seeing a change in other areas of your life as you advance in training.

Have fun, reduce stress, and improve your health

Improved personal fitness

As shown above, martial arts is a great way to improve your physical fitness. You’ll notice that training strengthens core muscles, improves flexibility, and enhances your endurance. Altogether, martial arts can help you reach peak physical fitness.

Reduced daily stress

Hey, we all live hectic lives. Without a doubt, martial arts is a great way to blow off the steam of a long, rough day. At the same time, stress reduction has important mental and cardiovascular benefits. So not only will you get to reduce your stress—you’re going to be healthier because of it.

Start having fun

Finally, martial arts is incredibly fun. Unsurprisingly, many of our students find martial arts training to be addictive. With every new challenge presented and met, you will come to love training at Tiger-Rock Martial Arts.

    I don't usually do online reviews, and this one is under unusual circumstances, but I feel like … More I owe it to these great folks. I signed my teenage daughter and I up at an introductory rate for a week of classes. My hope was that we could continue to do these classes together if she enjoyed them, and maybe it would keep her out of trouble and help us bond a bit. Due to unfortunate changes in circumstances (which were not at all Tiger Rock's fault), we never got started with them. I had to humbly ask for a refund. There's more to the story and I won't get into all of the details here, but the people at Tiger Rock were very gracious and understanding about the whole situation. I walked in there expecting that I would probably be out-of-pocket for at least something, but that was not the case at all. They were beyond fair about the whole thing and treated me with far more kindness than I ever expected. Also, their whole facility is spotlessly clean, even their bathrooms. I've never seen such a clean martial arts school before. You can tell that they take sanitation very seriously at Tiger Rock. I can't speak personally about the actual classes themselves, but from a business standpoint, Master John and Master Rachel (the owners) are class acts and definitely know how to treat people. I fully intend to bring my younger daughter there to take their junior level classes when she's a bit older. Definitely give Tiger Rock a shot, especially if you are looking for a martial arts school for your kids.

    The entire staff and team are amazing! My son has been attending Tiger Rock for almost three years now … More and it is well worth the time and the money. The entire staff knows our name and are invested in my child and his growth and development. We love attending classes and they have a great flexible schedule for various age groups. The staff work on fun activities in class as well as out of class to build a great report with the children. There is a great balance of discipline and routine and my son just adores it!
