The Tiny Tigers Taekwondo program was developed specifically for preschool age children. This program offers 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 listen, 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, thereby emphasizing the same important monthly themes and value system.
|“We started our 6 year old girl in tae kwon do so she could keep active and stay in shape. We really didn’t have many expectations…Over the last year and half we’ve watched her grow in so many ways. The classes have given her confidence, manners, structure, strength and a sense of commitment that shows up in class and outside the class as well. The teachers are fun; they care about the individual needs of the kids and are great role models for the kids to look up to. We really can’t wait to get our 3 yr old boy started so he can hopefully follow in her footsteps.”

Tiny Tigers have their own unique Victory Patch and Victory Stars. Stars are earned in the same way as theKarate for Kids Program, with slight modifications in recognition of the preschool age of the child.
Upon graduation from the Tiny Tigers Program into the Karate for Kids Program, Tigers are rewarded by the opportunity to wear the Karate for Kids Victory Patch.
The rank and testing system used by the Tigers is slightly different from that of the Karate for Kids. Tigers learn material in smaller blocks and promote in half-steps. This allows better retention and understanding of the material at all levels.
