Key Areas of Training
Balance and Coordination A major part of our curriculum are symmetrical movement exercises. These exercises focus on left- and right-side motion. These activities help these young students develop balance and coordination. Good balance and strong coordination at an early age form the foundation of self-confidence and self-control.
Focus and Concentration Tiger-Cub students participate in striking, kicking, speed, and agility drills. Not only will the drills help with motor skill development, but they will also enhance the student’s ability to focus. Focus and concentration are essential pillars of child development. This will help your child become more disciplined.
Self-Discipline Key to early child development is self-discipline. Self-discipline helps shape childhood behavior. At our academy, we instill values of self-discipline through our training. We encourage our students to focus on the drills and tasks at hand. From that, your child will learn personal responsibility and self-control.
Stranger Awareness Kids at this age are, by nature, very impulsive and eager. That’s why it is important for your child to know what to do when approached by a stranger. Our lessons incorporate stranger awareness, also colloquially called “stranger danger”. Through these lessons, we aim to teach your child what he or she needs to know to be safe. This is also a foundation of self-defense.
Advancement & Competition Students are encouraged to take advantage of multiple opportunities per year to advance in belt rank. Tiger-Rock belt tests, usually held roughly every 8 weeks year-round, give students the opportunity to apply what they have learned on the mat.
In addition, as a member of Tiger-Rock Martial Arts, your child will be encouraged to participate in yearly tournaments in the fall, spring, and summer. Much of our training is geared towards preparing students for belt testing and competitive events.
