Cubs Taekwondo (Ages 3-5)

Why Tiger-Rock?

The main emphasis of the Tiger-Rock Cubs program is to provide the instruction, structure, and environment to enhance the development of children between the ages of 3 to 6.  This specialized program is focused on the particular needs of this age including physical maturation, coordination, social skills, self concept, attention span, mental acuity, safety awareness, and self discipline.   Tiger-Rock Martial Arts instructors are extremely gentle and patient with participants.  Positive feedback, gentle motivation, and encouragement are the principles of instruction.  Whether it is learning to block, to be more aware of strangers or learning about leadership, our students win the day through play-based action scenarios, staged physical challenges and cognitive development drills.  After students graduate from the Tiger Cubs program they are eligible to enroll in the traditional programs for youth.

Certified Instruction

You can be assured that your youth are receiving the highest quality of instruction.  Tiger-Rock Martial Art Instructors are required to be certified and earn continuing education credits to keep up-to-date with the latest policies and teaching methods, ensuring safety and enhanced learning.  Tiger-Rock Martial Arts International recommends that all Instructors in the academy maintain a current CPR and First Aid certification. Tiger-Rock Martial Arts also require academy owners to conduct background checks on all annually-qualified Instructors and academy workers who are 18 years old or older in their academies. Academies place a high priority on protecting the safety of members.

Cubs TaeKwonDo



From our first visit, three years ago, with each private lesson, testing, and tournament, we have been consistently impressed with the high level of instructor preparation, the personal interest each instructor has taken in our children, the quality of instruction, and the thoroughly professional conduct from each member of the staff we have experienced at Tiger-Rock.

Testimonials

Read what people are saying about our programs.

 


"I think the academy is well-organized and flexible, and the instructors are keeping a good balance between the discipline required by martial arts and the softness the tender age of 8 requires."

--Yiannis A.

 
"The year that we started at Tiger Rock, my son was struggling in many ways. He has been diagnosed with a mild case of benign essential tremors. This is a neurological disorder that causes mild tremors in his arms and hands. It helps in every area in which he needs help:  balance, coordination, and strength. I have to say that the biggest change I’ve seen in Owen is his confidence.  A big part of that is from Taekwondo. He BELIEVES he can do anything and he has developed a very good work ethic to be able to do what everyone else does."
--Michele M.
 
"My son and I started Taekwondo together when he was 8 years old.  We stayed with it and went on to earned our black belts together.  Now that he's a teenager, we still both agree it's one of the best things we could have done together.  It really gave us something to connect on.  Now we'll always cherish the accomplishment, the shared interest and the shared time."

"This morning Hudson set the table for breakfast while I was cooking. He said, 'Mama, that's self-discipline.' Then he explained to his sister and baby sister the difference between discipline and self-discipline. When I told him that was pretty important, he replied, 'We learn more in karate than just moves, Mama.'"
