Here’s what to expect in our kids martial arts class
Striking and kicking
Kids martial arts lessons includes various drills, including striking and kicking. Students will learn various kicking techniques and defensive striking moves. Your child will learn how to defend his or herself from aggressive threats. However, these lessons also have additional benefits, such as developing your child’s athletic ability, improving motor skills, and boosting your child’s physical fitness.
Takedowns and self-defense
Undoubtedly, we live in an unpredictable world. As such, it is important your child knows how to react in self-defense to keep him or herself safe. Therefore, we help your child with their coordination, motor skills, and awareness. Thus, your child will build self-confidence and self-assurance which leads to effective self-defense.
At Tiger-Rock Martial Arts, we take bullying very seriously. Bullying can have a profound effect on a child’s life. It is critical that your child knows how to respond and defend themselves against a bully. That’s why we made anti-bullying education a major part of the Junior and Teen curriculum. We teach our students how to react and defend themselves against bullies, including de-escalation and counter-aggression.
We encourage our students to be good citizens on the mat AND off the mat. This includes teaching values of courtesy, humility, respect for authority and academic accountability. In fact, we have an Honors Program (Juniors) and Leadership Program (Youth) for exemplary students. These programs will allow students of proper rank to participate in activities that promote leadership.
As we say at our academy, “Nobody sits on the bench!” Our classes are designed to be fun and engaging where everybody participates. That’s why at Tiger-Rock Martial Arts, we craft an inclusive environment that is safe, fun, and positive. Thus, our students have a positive social experience and participate in various martial arts activities without feeling left out.
Advancement & Competition
Students are encouraged to take advantage of multiple opportunities per year to advance in belt rank. Tiger-Rock belt exams give students the opportunity to apply what they have learned on the mat. In addition, your child will be able to participate in yearly tournaments in the fall, spring, and summer. In fact, much of our training is geared towards preparing students for belt testing and competitive events.
