At Tiger-Rock Martial Arts, we use an approach known as counter-aggression self-defense. Using elements of various martial arts including taekwondo, hanmudo, and jiu-jitsu, among others, this self-defense curriculum focuses on honing striking, kicking, grappling, and evasion skills.
Moreover, Tiger-Rock’s self-defense program also teaches awareness, such as risk factors, what to pay attention to, and do’s and don’ts when you encounter an aggressive threat. We don’t teach fanatical, stunt-driven theatrics that you would see on a movie or TV show. As a Tiger-Rock student, you will learn skills that you can use in a real-world setting.
