Grappling

Ever wonder what it would be like to learn the techniques that you’ve seen on television. Now you can learn those fundamentals in a safe, non-threatening environment.  It is the perfect complement to our intense stand-up kicking and punching Taekwondo core. 

Our Grappling

Tiger-Rock Grappling combines powerful ground fighting and grappling moves such as chokeholds and joint locks to overpower an opponent. Tiger-Rock Grappling can be used for self-defense, for fitness, and as a sport.  Grappling has been known to exist as far back as 15,000 years ago! From the Trojan War to the modern octagon, grappling has been found in cultures as diverse as the Native populations of the Americas to the royal families of the Middle Ages.  Even Henry the VIII found time to grapple against rival King Francis I of France.  The program is open to all active members (no age limit). The program blends the best grappling systems, including American wrestling, in a dynamic way to create a challenging ground program complimentary to our Taekwondo program and culture.

Adult Grappling



It (Being part of Tiger-Rock) has impacted me in many ways, one major way is the community of it, the friends you constantly make from doing something that you love to do is very rewarding. From the physical aspect, I have learned to take that very seriously, I work out daily to keep in top shape and from that I eventually started eating a lot healthier.

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.'"
