An exclusive martial arts workout

Tiger-Rock’s curriculum is based on taekwondo. Since Tiger-Rock’s founding in 1983, we have expanded our training system to incorporate additional martial arts systems to supplement our taekwondo-based program. We integrate hapkido, hanmudo, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and the latest advancements in physical fitness. Our drills incorporate kicking, striking, sparring, grappling, hand-eye coordination, and martial arts-based calisthenics.

Designed for all ages and skill levels, our system can strengthen muscles, improve anaerobic power, increase flexibility and agility, and bolster your overall physical conditioning and endurance.
