WHAT TO EXPECT

What will you get up to in one of our classes

Our Tiger Tots classes are specially designed to help younger children gain a solid grounding in the benefits of martial arts in a safe and responsible environment. This training system is designed to improve motor skills while enhancing attention skills. The instruction teaches the basic fundamentals of self-defence in a positive environment & includes a number of ‘life skills’. Classes use a range of techniques, including games, to teach & reinforce skills.

Our Beginners Classes will combine a range of the following & will be different in every class:

  • Warm up / stretching

  • Basics – single techniques & combinations, static & moving

  • Padwork

  • Working with partners

  • Patterns of movement / Forms (hyungs)

  • Self-defence techniques

  • Strength building / cardio exercises

Graduations are extremely important events at Family Martial Arts Centres and are held every two months. Tigers from all Family Martial Arts Centres across the North West graduate together at the same venue, watched and supported by their friends and family and is a great opportunity to show everyone what we have been learning over the past couple of months in class. It is at these events that students are awarded their next coloured belt and certificate. It is via these Graduations that students progress through the ranks within martial arts.
