Pintsized pugilists learn the benefits of courtesy, respect, discipline, and punching in motor-skill-enhancing Tiny Tigers classes. Badges reinforce exemplary behaviors in and out of class, such as scholastic excellence, helping out the folks at home, and participating in community events. This program feeds into the Karate for Kids session, which uses a similar badge system to recognize more mature achievements, such as improving grades or performing special classroom duties such as spearheading the movement to get rid of grades. In adult sessions, instructors aid aspiring fightsmiths in developing the fitness to perform tae kwon do’s demanding, high-speed punches and kicks. Additionally, they foster the self-confidence that comes from being able to defend against an attacker.
Classes are held Monday–Thursday at any of three locations, as indicated on the online schedule. <p>
Triumph Martial Arts
Matt White cinches his uniform with a fourth-degree black belt in tae kwon do, heads down to one of Triumph Martial Arts' three locations, and dishes up a fist-full of knowledge earned over 25 years of mat-slapping training. Recognized by the American Tae Kwon Do Association as the Regional Instructor of the Year in 2008 and 2011, Mr. White takes pride in combative victory and from passing those skills on.
In keeping with the Association's instructional format, Mr. White and his battery of four instructors teach the martial art and philosophy of tae kwon do to kids and adults. Tiny Tigers sessions reach out to students as young as 4 years old, teaching them important values such as helping around the house, excelling at schoolwork, and how to survive a wildebeest stampede. Students as old as 55 have started with no experience, going on to successfully earn their black belts.
