The Tiny Tiger program offers children a strong foundation in essential character qualities such as courtesy, respect and discipline. In addition, the program is designed to improve children’s motor skills and enhance their ability to pay attention and follow directions. All classes are taught using the most safe, fun, and exciting instruction methods available for this age group. This program works in conjunction with the Karate For Kids program, emphasizing the same important monthly theme and value system.
Our school utilizes full-length color stripes in belts to signify the various ranks. White, White/black stripe, Orange, Orange/black stripe, Yellow, Yellow/black stripe, Camo, Camo/black stripe, Green, green/black stripe, Purple, Purple/black stripe, Blue, Blue/black stripe, Brown, Brown/black stripe, Red, Red/black stripe, Black stripes run along the center of the belt from one end to the other. There are also black wrapped stripes around one end to signify “time-in-grade” with advancement to the next belt color after obtaining three (3) stripes.
In addition to our other programs, we offer the Taekwondo for Tiny Tigers program. The Tiny Tiger program was developed specifically for preschool age children ages 2 through 6. This program offers children a strong foundation in essential character qualities such as courtesy, respect, and discipline. In addition, the program is designed to improve children’s motor skills.
Just like in the Karate for Kids program, Tiny Tigers have their own unique victory patch and “Victory Stars.” Stars are earned in the same way as the Karate for Kids program, with slight modifications in recognition of the preschool age of the child. Four different colored victory patches are available to accommodate all the stars that can be earned by a high achieving Tiny Tiger. Except for the logo, the four victory patches are the same as the Karate for Kids patches.
Upon graduation from the Tiny Tigers program into the “junior” program, Tigers are rewarded by the opportunity to wear the “Karate for Kids” patch.
