Tiger Martial Arts
Classes are held weekly and offer something for everyone. Tiny Tigers is perfect for young children who wish to learn the basics of martial arts. Students will learn respect for others, discipline, and self-control as they progress through the fundamentals of Tae Kwon Do while exercising and improving balance. Junior classes are the next step for progressive students who wish to continue their education. Junior students will continue to learn Tae Kwon Do forms and drills which will become more intensive as they progress through the belt ranking system.
For those parents or other newcomers who are interested we also offer adult classes which implement the integrated martial arts styles. Adult classes usually range in age from the late teens on up. ..
