The Tiny Tigers Program focuses on improving pre-school age children’s basic motor and listening skills. These skills make children more confident and build an enthusiastic outlook towards learning. This program enables children to become better students at school, better listeners at home and more ambitious in their endeavors. We believe the time between the ages of 3 and 5 are the most important years of a child’s development. Our program will enhance positive development in a fun and motivating way. Children will benefit from developing the following skills: • Focus • Teamwork • Control • Balance • Memory • Discipline • Fitness • Coordination Children will learn the eight skills through a variety of positive reinforcements. Class skill stripes are rewarded when children earn them in class. Each child will earn eight stripes, one for each skill. Once all eight stripes are earned, the child will qualify for advancement to the next belt level. Advancement to a new belt level is done at a Tiny Tigers Belt Promotion which will be approximately every 8 – 10 weeks. The Tiny Tiger sessions are to be Non Contact and/or Light Contact only. If Semi or Full Contact classes are provided students must come to sparring sessions at Gold Country Martial Arts Center in Placerville.
We pride ourselves on helping our members safely in a FUN, positive, and injury-free environment! Parents all over the Placerville area give our martial arts classes credit for increasing their child’s ability to focus, building their self-esteem, and igniting a passion for self-improvement they never would have expected.
Much More than “Kicking & Punching”
Although many people think the martial arts are just about fighting, the truth is that the physical “kicking and punching” are really just the “tools” that we use to teach the more important, and MUCH more
valuable lessons about “yourself”.
When you train in our martial arts program, you take advantage of the best self-improvement system in the world.
Through the practice of physical self-defense skills, you will follow a blueprint for a successful life based on discipline, focus, and perseverance.
The Adult Taekwondo classes are taught using traditional Kukkiwon martial arts principles. Also included in the classes are physical and mental development. Students are taught punching and kicking skills in a safe and fun environment while also providing adults a positive outlet for self-improvement, personal growth, building confidence, stress relief and management, potential weight loss, and developing a healthy lifestyle.
