Developing the ability to focus and concentrate is essential to child development. As a result, your child will be exhibit more discipline.
Self-Discipline We cannot understate how important instilling self-discipline is at a young age. It helps shape childhood behavior. In fact, self-discipline is a key tenet of Tiger-Rock Martial Arts. Students are encouraged to focus on the tasks at hand. From there, your child will learn personal responsibility and self-control.
Stranger Awareness At this age, kids are typically impulsive, curious, and eager. Unfortunately, there are elements in this world that aim to take advantage of that. That’s why at Tiger-Rock Martial Arts, we incorporate stranger awareness training into our kids martial arts classes. It is an additional step we take to help keep your child safe.
Advancement & Competition Students are encouraged to take advantage of multiple opportunities per year to advance in belt ranking. These belt tests give students the opportunity to apply what they have learned on the mat. Also, as a member of Tiger-Rock Martial Arts, your child will be invited 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.
