Welcome to The Tiger-Cub and Juniors Programs
There are two children’s programs from Tiger-Rock Martial Arts: Tiger-Cubs and Juniors. Tiger-Cubs is their early childhood program for children between the ages of 4 to 6. Juniors are the elementary program that is for children between the ages of 6 and 11 years old.
These programs teach children the basics and help them to build a foundation in martial arts. Tiger-Cubs will practice symmetrical movements to help them develop balance and coordination. Juniors will learn kicking and striking drills that will develop their speed and agility.
Tiger-Rock doesn’t just train ages 4 – 11; they also train teenagers and adults. The children’s programs help lay the groundwork for the later classes as they get older. Throughout their time with Tiger-Rock, they will build their self-discipline, confidence, and self-concept.
Since they are building their foundation in martial arts, they focus on training that refines their cognitive development. Coordination and balance are an essential part of your child’s life right now. We assist them through this time of their development by teaching them bilateral movements, which will help asymmetrical development. Each class is an action-packed and dynamic 30-minute class.
Learning to listen and focus will help aid your child in their schoolwork and later in life. Listening is a skill that comes with practice. This is why Tiger-Rock helps children channel their focus through specific moves and instruction that will help them focus their body, eyes, and mind.
Obey Your Leaders
After your child has practiced their focusing and listening skills, then they will begin to learn how to obey directions. Children are often expected to listen to their parents, and the instructors at Tiger-Rock will help teach them to carry out their parent’s and teacher’s instructions through respect.
Learn New Skills
As they learn how to listen, focus, and obey their parents and teachers, they can achieve effective learning. Through discipline, they are better able to take in the information they need—these skills transition well from the mat to elementary, High School, and College classes.
Share With Others
Sharing is an important lesson that not only applies to children. Everyone has to learn to share the world with each other. A way that Tiger-Rock teaches their students to share is by helping them to see the importance of taking turns. Through sharing, students learn how to respect one another, and learning this skill will have a large impact on their life.
Patience in Practice
Through these skills, they will begin to learn patience. As they take turns and listen to their instructors and parents, they will find that some of the best things take time. Not everything is learned all at once, and some things are truly worth the wait.
Here at Tiger-Rock, we teach life skills that will build a foundation of their ethical and moral beliefs. These 7 life skills will help them to become dependable and respectful leaders as they grow.
After your little one graduates from Tiger-Cubs, then they will become a part of Juniors. Juniors are for children who are ages 6 to 11, and they focus on more advanced movements. Some of what they practice are striking and kicking drills, which are to help them build their speed and agility. Additionally, they will continue to practice the 7 life skills your child learned in the Tiger-Cubs program.
Practice Makes Perfect
Your child will continue to practice these skills and master them through their classes. Over time these skills will help your child to become a respectable and dependable adult as they age.
Attitude is Everything
Having the right attitude can help your child to overcome challenging obstacles and increase their mental strength. Tiger-Rock encourages students to adopt the mentality “I think I can. I know I can. I CAN.”
Courage in Challenges
Students can pair the right attitude with the courage to overcome challenges in their lives. It takes a lot of courage to stand up for what you believe in, and we want to help them to have the courage to make their voices heard.
Tiger-Rock’s main goal with these 7 life skills is to help our students become the best people they can be. Here they won’t only develop physically, but they will develop emotionally, socially, and mentally.
These skills are created to help each child become an effective leader. As your Junior practices these skills and implements them in their daily lives, they will see the benefits that these skills have to offer. These skills will help them to reach their goals and become successful in life.
In addition to the Juniors class, we offer an honors program for those who excel on and off the mat. Through the honors program, your child will have the opportunity to participate in leadership roles that will help them grow their skills.
