Get in the Game


At Tiger-Rock we believe that the purpose of our training is to compete, defend, and advance. Through regular participation we can accelerate development of our martial arts skills, protect ourselves, and achieve recognition. Together through consistent training and our event experiences we achieve our goals and are recognized for achievement, effort, and contribution.


Competition is a part of our lives every day. Whether for a better job, grades in school, or a closer parking spot at the grocery store; we are constantly competing. Tiger Rock students test their skills and performance by competing in three events annually. We accelerate our skill development and earn the opportunity to distinguish ourselves.


Defense and Personal Protection are an integral part of every training session. From day one new students will learn how to empower their voice and escape from dangerous situation. As a student’s skills and self-confidence develop and improve they will learn how to avoid these situations and protect themselves should a physical situation arise.


The culmination of a Tiger Rock Students training is the opportunity for advancement and the Champions ceremony. Students are throughouly tested on their physical skill, knowledge, and performance resulting in rank Advancement.
Students who achieve their advancement are recognized by their Instructors at the Champions Ceremony.
