Studying martial arts is ideal for young children. It provides them with an outlet for their energy. But, it also teaches them about respect, discipline, and other core values that will go with them beyond the class. Tiny Tiger classes teach kids to control their movements and behavior, and they’ll learn social skills and interaction at the same time.
Children from 6 to 12 years of age have several different needs. A few examples include: self-confidence, physical coordination, increased attention span, self-discipline and a sense of individual accomplishment. Tang Soo Do can fulfill all of these needs and more. Many parents notice vast improvements in their child’s behavior and some school counselors have recommended martial arts training for just this reason.
Tang Soo Do strives to achieve personal development and growth. In doing so your child will obtain the positive character attributes of patience, concentration, self discipline and self confidence, as well as a healthy body. What they learn today will still be valuable for all of their tomorrows.
Our specialized children's program offers an age-specific curriculum that is professionally designed to teach children ages 6-12 years of age in a fun, exciting, and enriching manner. The program is made to improve children’s coordination and balance, enhance their ability to pay attention, follow directions, and to learn self-control. Students also learn conflict resolution, which along with learning to physically defend themselves, is a great deterrent against today’s vast bullying problem.
Grandmaster DiScipio has always been involved in teaching our students to deal with bullying situations- including avoidance techniques, conflict resolution and always using physical responses as a last resort. In addition to teaching self-defense and physical fitness, we emphasize the tenets of Tang Soo Do: Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control and Indomitable Spirit. Our goal is to develop well-rounded individuals who are mentally and physically capable of defending themselves and others.
Grandmaster Marco DiScipio's “Bullying Stops With Me” initiative is designed to help our students become a safe friend to classmates who may feel isolated, alone, or physically intimidated. Our students can be the safe person in school or in other places where kids could be targets. This doesn’t mean our students will be involved in fighting. Rather, they will seek out students who may be eating alone, getting picked on or are targets of unfair treatment and they will learn how to seek proper adult assistance.
