They (and You) Will Get More Active: This is the obvious reason kids should do martial arts in this day and age – to get active and moving. The martial arts offer many benefits, but when it comes to fitness, becoming a true martial artist means becoming a supremely fit person.
They’ll Connect Their Mind and Body: A martial artist is taught to see, feel, and listen – both internally and externally. Tapping into intuition, fear, and courage are examples of being able to put the physical together with the mental. How often have we heard the phrase “being paralyzed with fear”? Being able to combat such a thing is what you learn in the martial arts.
LITTLE TIGERS FORMULA
FLEXIBILITY & BALANCE
Classes are jam packed with excitement for children from the ages of 3 to 5. Students improve flexibility, practice martial arts & do exciting drills that are guaranteed to improve coordination and strengthen child development. Our curriculum helps to develop fine and gross motor skills.
LITTLE TIGERS CLASS
Our Little Tigers classes are an exciting way to stay active and learn an effective self defense style. Classes help to improve flexibility and build strength though performing forms, combinations, and foot work. Workshops, traditional self defense, and sport style, help each student to find their own path and to develop according to the goals they want to achieve!
LITTLE TIGERS MORALS
Our Little Tiger Program does not stop once the student leaves the mat. We provide life lessons that teach students good habits that follow them long after they have finished their class. Respectful greeting and answering, our 5 finger rules for behavior, and our “I will not complain to…” list are just some of the lesson we teach.
One of the most important lessons that students learn in our program is goal setting. We set up achievable goals for our Little Tigers and motivate and guide them to accomplish them. Once they demonstrate the skill required at an age appropriate level, they are rewarded with a stripe. Once all stripes for that belt are earned, they are invited to test for the next belt.
LITTLE TIGERS EVENTS
In addition to the physical and mental focus our program also helps our Little Tigers develop social skills through Little Tiger only events. Movie Nights, Snowball fights, Superhero events, and other fun events are run each month so our students can interact with their friends (and give mom and dad a night off).
