Help your child improve social skills, life skills, and self-discipline with martial arts

Tiger-Rock students take part in full-participation martial arts classes designed for elementary school students. Students participate in kicking and striking drills, as well as self-defense and anti-bullying exercises.

In our kids’ martial arts classes, we teach the importance of good citizenship, stranger awareness, and self-confidence.

BETTER LISTENING LEADS TO BETTER GRADES

Martial arts requires students use their mental and physical skills together to achieve their goals.

One of the first things that our students learn as martial artists is how to listen like a Black Belt.

Learning to focus their eyes, their mind and their bodies on a single person speaking to them or the action that they are doing leads to improved results.

Concentration is the key

Building the ability to concentrate is one of the best ways to combat ADD & ADHD.

The first key our students learn is to focus their eyes on their instructor in order to increase their ability to learn visually.

The second key our students learn is to focus their mind.  Learning the ability to tune out the noise and distractions round them increases their ability to assimilate and retain the lesson they are given.

The final key is learning to focus their bodies.  Learning to sit still and reduce the urge to fidget encourages them to not be their own distraction while in the lesson

BULLYING HURTS KIDS PSYCHOLOGICALLY

Children who are bullied often suffer from low self-esteem, fear, and poor school performance. Their lives revolve around the actions of bullies.

Bullies focus on kids who seem fearful or vulnerable, but martial arts teaches kids to be confident and self-assured.

Martial arts build mental, emotional, and physical strength – and by teaching self-respect, it helps children believe in themselves, which makes them poor targets for bullies.

HOW TO SET (AND ACHIEVE) GOALS

Sometimes kids don’t appear to care about setting goals in the short or the long-term.

Studying martial arts require kids to pursue goals on a regular basis. With each skill they learn and each belt they earn they will have something representative of a goal they’ve achieved.

By showing goal-setting in this way, kids are provided with the tools they’ll need to set achievable goals in school, at home, and in life.

DISCIPLINE BEGINS WITH YOURSELF

One of the first things our students learn as martial artists is the difference between discipline vs self discipline.

Discipline is when someone has to remind them to do the right thing.

Self discipline is when they do the right thing without being told.
