Tiger-Rock Martial Arts International is one of the largest franchises of its kind. The Lafayette branch takes full advantage of the academy's far-reaching influence to draw a team of experienced instructors who haven't seen a cinder block they couldn't chop in two. Describing the scope of the academy's courses is as futile a task as going toe-to-toe with one of these instructors, but the options range from casual fitness classes to tutorials in handling martial weapons.
