About our Tiger-Cub and Juniors Programs
Tiger-Rock Martial Arts offers two programs for kids—the Tiger-Cubs program for early childhood development and the Juniors Program for elementary school-age kids. Students in these programs learn self-discipline, self-defense, life skills, and anti-bullying tactics in a fun and action-packed environment.
The Tiger-Cubs Program is offered to students ages 4 to 6 years old. This program is designed to bolster early childhood development. Students will learn the basics of taekwondo, acquire listening skills, and develop self-discipline.
The Juniors Program is available to elementary school students 6 to 10 years old. Students in this program learn martial arts exercises and forms, how to stand up to bullies, and self-defense techniques. Students improve their self-discipline, self-confidence, self-concept.

Striking and kicking
Lessons for this age group 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
Self-defense is one thing; knowing what to do when a threat is oncoming is another. Our kids martial arts training system helps students react properly for effective self-defense. As your child improves his or her coordination and motor skills, your child will feel more confident.
Unfortunately, elementary school may expose children to their first experience with bullying. However, our kids martial arts training system at Tiger-Rock incorporates anti-bullying education. We teach our students how to react and defend themselves against bullies.
Students are encouraged to be good citizens off the mat. This includes respect for authority and academic accountability. We also have an Honors Program that will be available as your child advances in rank. This program will allow students of proper rank to participate in activities that promote leadership.
