Key Training Areas
Striking, kicking, and sparring – Tiger-Rock’s teen martial arts lessons include striking, kicking, and sparring drills. These drills help improve motor skills, physical ability, and physical fitness. As teens advance in these drills, their timing, coordination, and balance improves. Core endurance is enhanced. They also help teens further develop their capabilities in self-defense.
Physical fitness – Helping teens stay fit is a core goal in our program. We incorporate various martial arts calisthenics in our classes to help build upper- and lower-body strength. In combination with typical teen martial arts striking, kicking, and sparring drills, a complete workout that improves a teen’s cardiovascular health and core endurance is developed.
Self-Defense and Anti-Bullying – Unfortunately, bullying escalates at the intermediate and high school level. It is important for a teen martial arts student to know what to do when being bullied. Our anti-bullying education is extensive and our training program includes extensive self-defense training. We want to help teens gain the ability to protect themselves safely and effectively.
Confidence – Students in this age group begin to reflect deeper on their self-image. At Tiger-Rock Martial Arts, we understand how important it is for teens to have a positive self-assessment. For many teens, self-image and self-confidence shapes their physical, mental, and emotional well-being. In our inclusive environment, we aim to teach with positive reinforcement while giving every teen student the tools they need to succeed not only on the mat, but off the mat as well.
Leadership & Citizenship – Some of the most important life lessons are taught during this time. We feel that it is important for teens to cultivate those life lessons positively to make a better world. We extensively train our students in the values of good citizenship and strong leadership. In fact, we offer a Leadership Program whenever a teen student achieves a certain rank. It’s more than a martial arts system; it’s a way of life.
Advancement and Competition – Students are encouraged to take advantage of multiple opportunities per year to advance in belt rank. Tiger-Rock Belt Exams give students the opportunity to apply what they have learned on the mat.
As a member of Tiger-Rock Martial Arts, teen martial arts students are encouraged to participate in our annual fall, spring, and summer tournaments.
Much of our training is geared towards preparing students for belt testing and competitive events.
