Tigers and Advanced Tigers
- For our students ages 8 and older.
- 50 minute classes once and twice a week.
- Classes focus on formalized set of lessons and building solid technique.
The Tigers and Advanced Tigers classes are designed for students 8 and up, and emphasize building strength, focus, discipline and technique through the study of self-defense lessons and traditional Hand Forms, as well as 3-to-5 move defense drills which promote think-on-your-feet application of learned moves. Upon reaching their Green Belt rank, students become Advanced Tigers and begin focusing on fine-tuning their skills, freestyle training and developing their own weapon lessons and Weapon Form for their Black Belt Test.
During Stripe and Belt Tests, students demonstrate the lessons and exercises they have been taught, a number of Hand Form moves from their chosen form, and 3-to-5 move defense (Advanced students demonstrate freestyling instead).
ALL TIGER AND DRAGON STUDENTS MUST HAVE AN “INTENT TO PROMOTE” FORM SIGNED BY THEIR PARENTS AND TEACHER TO BE PROMOTED TO THE NEXT BELT RANK.
This is a form by which we make sure our students are trying hard in school and being respectful at home and in class. This is one of the main goals we have for our students here at American Tiger Martial Arts.
