Benefits of Taekwondo for


The Tiger Program was developed specifically for preschool children ages 4 to 6 years old. This Program offers children a strong foundation in essential character qualities such as courtesy, respect, and discipline.

All classes are taught using the safest, fun, and exciting instruction methods available for this age group.  This program works in conjunction with the Karate for Kids program, thereby emphasizing the same important monthly themes and value system.

Just like in the Karate for Kids program, Tigers have their own unique curriculum and age-appropriate program. We want our Tigers to learn the fundamentals of Taekwondo through the modified curriculum and zero downtime classes we offer. The students learn martial arts while having fun!

Upon graduation from the Tigers program into the “Junior” or “Big Kid” program, Tigers are rewarded by the opportunity to wear the “Big Kids” or “Karate for Kids” patch.
