ANCIENT ART FORM - MODERN OLYMPIC SPORT

Children's classes are divided by both age and skill level. All children are taught at their own pace to develop their present capabilities and bring out their hidden potential. The Masters are committed to helping each and every student improve. The goal of the White Tiger children's program is to provide benefits that extend beyond the walls of the Martial Arts school. Many parents, doctors, teachers and psychologists find that Martial Arts improve children’s academic progress – attention span, listening skills, cooperative learning, following directions and leadership skills are all areas of training that directly carry over to the academic classroom.

As a society, we are becoming better educated about the needs of children who suffer from ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) and ODD (Oppositional Defiant Disorder), not to mention peer pressure and alienation. A well-rounded Martial Arts curriculum can help your child cope with these problems and develop essential physical, motor, linguistic, perceptual and social skills. Children as young as three years of age learn fundamental movements that can improve their sense of balance and coordination. As boys and girls advance through their training, they'll be introduced to more complex drills that will challenge and improve their ability to concentrate, which in turn can elevate their self-esteem.

TEENS

As childhood slips away, youngsters enter a stage where they become increasingly independent of their parents. Their physical growth is readily apparent but their intellectual and emotional development cannot be as easily measured. Lines of communication can become crossed, tangled, strained and, in some cases, completely disconnected. Unlike organized team sports, which often fail to nurture the individual, Martial Arts can provide your son or daughter with the chance to become stronger and more flexible and to improve their overall health and self-image. They'll come to recognize the rewards of hard work and discipline, which often lead to improved academic performance. They'll make friends who share a healthy interest and they'll fortify themselves against negative peer pressure. Youngsters who have been taught to respect their bodies and minds are less likely to fall prey to using life-endangering substances or engaging in activities thatcan destroy their health.
