Start your Transformation Now!

We can change you from the inside out!  We have what you need…better fitness?  More energy? Increased coordination?  Better flexibility?  Weight loss?  Stress management? All of these can happen for you.  We know that adults who engage in Tiger-Rock Martial Arts programs can dramatically increase their fitness level, lose weight and lower stress levels.  This isn’t your grandfather’s karate class.  Tiger-Rock Martial Arts International® has blended modern sport science, the latest research and hundreds of years of martial arts tradition to provide you with the finest martial arts experience available. 

What is Tiger-Rock Martial Arts? 

We start with our core Taekwondo art.  Adults immediately feel the energy and power that comes from movements that involve kicking, punching, turning and striking.  Dramatic changes occur over time that you could not imagine possible.  Greater flexibility, faster response times, improved concentration all translate into the ability to make everyday life easier both at home and at work.  Keeping up with the kids, the boss, school assignments and weekend activities now become almost effortless.

Why Tiger-Rock?

We have taken the martial arts experience to a new level. Our programs focus on the components that increase fitness, artistic precision, and self empowerment.   Countless hours of research and staying abreast of the latest sports science are just the beginning.  We understand the fundamental history and philosophy of our martial art.  Our tradition originated with one of the five original schools of Taekwondo practice, the Chung Do Kwan.  Building upon this powerful and prestigious ancestry, we constantly strive to evolve and refine the art just as our Taekwondo forefathers directed their efforts.  Our curriculum is never stale, outdated or unsafe.  Our martial art is not a relic of another time. 

What’s the benefit?

Imagine the possibility of burning up to 800 calories in one session.  No more clothes you can’t squeeze into.  Make your friends keep up with you for a change!  You just cannot get this experience in a gym or trying to workout on your own.  Our instructors are highly trained, focused, professional martial artists who mentor and guide you through this dynamic journey of transformation.  Through this special relationship, adults learn valuable self-protection skills, and greater mental strength. The warrior tradition comes alive in a safe, controlled environment that challenges each individual in every class.

Tiger-Rock Martial Arts provides the motivation to stay with an exercise program. It is a full body workout with a focus on safety to ensure it can be done long term. I started with Tiger-Rock Taekwondo 5 years ago at the age of 39 and am healthy and strong because of the ongoing draw that this type of exercise program can provide.

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."
Catherine S.
"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.'"
