What to expect in our kids martial arts class
Kicking, striking, and exercise drills
Generally, our classes incorporate kicking, striking, and exercise drills that will help build strength and confidence. Much of our drills are built around repetition, which enhances a child’s ability to focus. Also, this gives your child a foundation in self-defense.
Agility and speed exercises
Helping kids become more fit physically is a key concern at Tiger-Rock. That’s why we incorporate various agility and speed exercises for older students to improve their conditioning. Thus, over time, students will begin to build a degree of martial arts athleticism that can prove beneficial if they decide to take up other activities, such as team sports.
Unfortunately, bullying is a very real threat that a lot of kids face. And how kids respond to bullying may determine what path they follow in life. Therefore, we make anti-bullying education a key component of our martial arts lessons. We teach students how to stand their ground and show confidence. Most of the time, the bully will back down. However, in the event the bully does not, we will make sure you child knows important techniques to protect him or herself, get away, and seek an adult.
Stranger awareness and self-defense
Like most parents, you are considering enrolling your child into a kids martial arts class so they can learn how to protect his or herself. We teach numerous defensive and evasion tactics as part of our self-defense training. However, there’s another key element: awareness. Students learn how to be aware of their surroundings and of strangers, and how to react appropriately.
A great atmosphere and environment
In order to provide the most effective instruction, we focus on being positive, encouraging, and reassuring. Our instructors are not drill sergeants. We encourage students to learn at their own pace. Most of all, we want students to participate. No one sits on the bench at Tiger-Rock! Altogether, Tiger-Rock students enjoy a great atmosphere where they can learn, grow, and have fun.
