Our Kids Martial Arts Programs
Students that are 4, 5 and (some) 6 years old will be enrolled in our Tiger-Cubs Program. This program serves as the early childhood training curriculum at Tiger-Rock. Students will learn symmetrical movements and lay the foundation of balance and coordination. Tiger-Cub lessons are some of the most exciting and fun 30 minutes your child will enjoy in his or her day.
Students that are 6 to 11 will be placed in our Junior Program. The Junior Program builds self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-control. Our drills and exercises help channel positive energy. In addition to speed and agility drills, martial arts exercises, and kicking, sparring, and striking drills, Junior students also learn real world self-defense and participate in anti-bullying education. These fun, action-packed classes usually last 40 to 45 minutes.

Many parents consider martial arts a valuable way to help their kids become more disciplined. In fact, many of our parents here at Tiger-Rock Martial Arts of High Point report a noticeable improvement in their child’s behavior a few months into their martial arts training.
At Tiger-Rock, we teach lessons of self-control, respect for authority, how to properly channel their energy, and following instructions. These valuable life skills will improve your child’s behavior at home and your child’s conduct and academic performance at school.
Build your child’s self-esteem and self-confidence
Martial arts helps children acquire new skills and develop the ability to do awesome things they may not have done before. Our academy focuses on providing positive reinforcement to our young students, helping to build on the successes they achieve on the mat after each lesson.
As your child continues their martial arts training, they will build their self-esteem and their self-confidence. This can go a long way in combating issues such as peer pressure, bullying, poor academic performance, and behavioral issues.
Anti-bullying and self-defense
Tiger-Rock Martial Arts of High Point akes bullying seriously. Our younger martial arts students are taught how to protect themselves from bullies through de-escalation and necessary physical evasion. We also encourage students to report bullying to their parents or to any adult with proper authority.
Moreover, we also instill the important life skill of self-defense. Self-defense encompasses stranger awareness, bullying awareness, and protecting oneself from an opponent. We will teach your child important tactics and strategies to use when necessary.
