Tiger Kids

We are now enrolling 4, 5 and 6 year olds in our Tiger Kids program. This class will meet for 30 minutes of fun and learning once a week. Tiger Kids is designed to be a "readiness" program for karate students. Coincidently, many of the skills needed to be ready to learn karate are also skills useful in school and other group activities. Developing these abilities tends to increase self-respect, confidence, and self-esteem. Through games and drills, the students will learn and practice in a fun environment not only simple karate moves, but also many of the same skills they need to succeed in these other settings.
