What our Tiger Tots class offers

Tiger Tots Class 3-5yrs

Tiger Tots

Ideal for Nursery + Reception Kids

Our Tiger Tots Class is a unique way in which we teach foundational martial arts movements and essential life skills. Our Tiger Tots love martial arts and parents love watching their kids learn and grow in a positive, well-disciplined and encouraging atmosphere. The Tiger Tots program teaches each child to recognise the importance of focus and determination and how these aspects lead to reward and achievement.

Over 2 decades of experience and plenty of science research has taught us that among the ages of 2½ to 6 years, accelerated learning takes place among children when accompanied with a parent compared to children learning on their own. Our unique coaching methods use this ‘already established bond’ of the child with the parent to accelerate learning in an age appropriate, educational, motivationally exciting and playful class based on the physical, intellectual, emotional and social stage of development of each child who attends. Children develop the following skills on a step-by-step basis;

Movement Control & Coordination, Confidence, Social interaction, Team work, Discipline, Respect, Conformity, Martial Arts Skills, Fitness, Focus, Balance, Memory, Awareness

Tiger Tots classes are based on positive recognition, reward and reinforcement for effort, skill, manners, sportsmanship and respectful for others. Tiger Tots training builds a strong foundation that can easily be applied to schooling, sports, arts and social settings outside of class. These skills will help them enter society with a more confident and enthusiastic outlook. They will become better students at school, better listeners and more ambitious towards the future.

Classes start simple and gradually become more challenging based on each child’s individual pace and readiness for new material.

Our instructors focus on skills with drills, routines and “mat chat”. To the children, these drills often look like “play” and that makes learning fun! But look more closely and you will see the hand and-eye coordination at work, memory skills being enhanced, and focus and listening being highly developed from this early age!

At the end of each class, Sensei awards Josie The Tiger to the best performing child in that class. This keeps the program exciting and challenging for the Tiger Tots. Then every 3 months there is a Belt test for progression. Your child will learn how to set goals and achieve them by accomplishing their new ranks. Then, they progress onto the Regular Program at 5yrs without having to start all-over again!

Tiger Tots grade from white belt to brown on the Tiger Tots syllabus being exposed to positive social interaction along the way that will build their confidence. They will learn how to work with others and follow directions from their instructors, a necessary preparation for the skills required for excellent schooling. Tiger Tots Class will prepare your child for our Regular classes that start from the age of 5yrs when the class instructor decides what Belt level your child will continue training in The DOJO Regular Class. Tiger Tots enter our Regular Program with balance, coordination basic techniques and focus which enables them to succeed and advance at an accelerated pace.

We’ve had outstanding success in teaching kids how to become goal-oriented, athletic and academic achievers. We believe that every child has the potential to become a high achiever in life!
