Juniors Ages 6-11
The Tiger-Rock Junior Martial Arts™ training program stimulates confidence and leadership through achievement and physical skill building. Participants between the ages of 6-11 will enjoy participating in the various athletic and artistic elements of class that cultivate them into becoming skilled martial artists. We incorporate Tiger Rock Bully Know curriculum to further reinforce the skills needed to empower children when faced with bullies.
Our Junior Tiger Rock Martial Arts program offers daily lessons for ages 6 and up. These lessons develop self-esteem and confidence, teach discipline and self-control, help channel energy, develop lifelong self defense skills, are fun and encourage positive work and academic values.
Important achievements are marked by a progressive belt rank system that rewards students for meeting their goals. The 15 step R15E curriculum is the Tiger Rock Life Skills program that compliments and accompanies students during each step of this journey.
Students are continually asked to achieve new levels both physically and emotionally. Our environment, though demanding, is one of achievement through individual growth. By focusing and trying hard, our students realize that they can be highly successful in Tiger Rock Martial Arts and in life.
Our Honors and Leaders program, and our Demonstration Team are additional life skills opportunities that students have the opportunity to be invited to participate in.
Key Areas of Training
Striking and kicking Lessons for this age group includes various drills, including striking and kicking. Students will learn various kicking techniques and defensive striking moves. Your child will learn how to defend his or herself from aggressive threats. However, these lessons also have additional benefits, such as developing your child’s athletic ability, improving motor skills, and boosting your child’s physical fitness.
Takedowns and self-defense Our kids martial arts training program works to make students more effective at defending themselves. This includes teaching stranger awareness and how to react in situations where they feel threatened. As your child improves his or her coordination and motor skills, your child will feel more confident.
Anti-Bullying Education Unfortunately, elementary school may expose children to their first experience with bullying. However, our kids martial arts training system at Tiger-Rock incorporates anti-bullying education. We teach our students how to react and defend themselves against bullies.
Good Citizenship Students are encouraged to be good citizens off the mat. This includes respect for authority and academic accountability. We also have an Honors Program that will be available as your child advances in rank. This program will allow students of proper rank to participate in activities that promote leadership.
Full participation “Nobody sits on the bench!” is our motto for the Juniors Program. Our classes encourage full participation. We pride ourselves at having an inclusive environment at your neighborhood martial arts academy. This environment allows for students to have a positive social experience and participate in various martial arts activities without feeling left out.
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.
