Elementary and middle school bring new challenges both academically and socially. A constructive after-school activity such as kids martial arts training can help your child with these challenges. This is where Tiger-Rock Martial Arts comes in, your neighborhood martial arts academy serving the communities of Enterprise, Daleville, Level Plains, New Brockton and Elba. We have a specially designed curriculum for elementary school students – the Juniors Program. This program represents the next step in kids martial arts training. Students learn about goal setting, self-defense, and vital anti-bullying tactics in a fun and action-packed environment.
Key Areas of Training
Striking and kicking Lessons for this age group includes various drills, including striking and kicking. Students will learn various kicking techniques and defensive striking moves. Your child will learn how to defend his or herself from aggressive threats. However, these lessons also have additional benefits, such as developing your child’s athletic ability, improving motor skills, and boosting your child’s physical fitness.
Takedowns and self-defense Our kids martial arts training program works to make students more effective at defending themselves. This includes teaching stranger awareness and how to react in situations where they feel threatened. As your child improves his or her coordination and motor skills, your child will feel more confident.
Education Unfortunately, elementary school may expose children to their first experience with bullying. However, our kids martial arts training system at Tiger-Rock incorporates anti-bullying education. We teach our students how to react and defend themselves against bullies.
Good Citizenship Students are encouraged to be good citizens off the mat. This includes respect for authority and academic accountability. We also have an Leadership Program that will be available as your child advances in rank. This program will allow students of proper rank to participate in activities that promote leadership.
Full participation “Nobody sits on the bench!” is our motto for the Juniors Program. Our classes encourage full participation. We pride ourselves at having an inclusive environment at your neighborhood martial arts academy. This environment allows for students to have a positive social experience and participate in various martial arts activities without feeling left out.
Advancement & Competition Students are encouraged to take advantage of multiple opportunities per year to advance in belt ranking. These belt tests give students the opportunity to apply what they have learned on the mat. Also, as a member of Tiger-Rock Martial Arts, your child will be invited to participate in yearly tournaments in the fall, spring, and summer. Much of our training is geared towards preparing students for belt testing and competitive events.
