In addition to our internationally recognized Taekwondo for Kids Program, Parks Hidden Tiger Do Jang and Black Belt Academy offers Tiny Tiger Program. The Tiger Program was developed specifically for preschool age 3 through 5. 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 and enhance their ability to pay attention and follow directions. All classes are taught using the most sage, fun, and exciting instruction methods available for this age group. This program works in conjunction with the Taekwondo for Kids Program, thereby emphasizing the same important monthly themes and value system.
Tigers have their own unique victory patch and stars. Stars are rewarded for outstanding behavior during class as well as following direction. Tiger training is designed to be fun and fulfilling for each student. This is because Tae kwon do is an individual activity rather than a team sport. Therefore every student is an active and valuable participant in class. They workout with kids their own age and size under well-supervised conditions, and progress at their own pace.
Through personal growth and achievement, students advance with a martial arts belt rank but are also acknowledged for outstanding performance in martial arts class, school, home and special events. The rank and testing system used by the Tigers is slightly different than Taekwondo for Kids. Tigers will earn 7 stripe belts to advance one full color belt rank. This system is used to prepare for Tigers for Taekwondo for Kids Program where most of the Tigers will advance to Taekwondo for Kids program within 2 years.
Remember, no two kids are alike, they all learn at a different pace and a different way. We take the time and work with the kids to develop who they are from where they are. We want your kids to succeed and be fulfilled. We work hard to encourage and uplift your child to new heights and new abilities in Martial Arts and in life.
