ATA Tigers is a unique program for children ages 3 - 6
No soul or spirit is ever too young to start it’s own journey. The foundations of our morals, values, and core character traits are formed in our early years. For this reason, the ATA Tigers program is an essential way to enhance the growth and development of pre-school and kindergarten aged children.
The ATA Tigers program was developed specifically for preschool age children ages 3 through 6. This program offers children a strong foundation in essential character qualities such as courtesy, respect, and discipline. Students will learn to control their gross, fine and complex motor skills, safety skills of knowing their full name, phone number, who a stranger is and what to do if they get lost. They also learn practical self defense moves to use, if there is ever the need, and when it is ok/not ok to use their martial arts training.
At the heart of the ATA Tigers program are the nine awesomely-animated characters who in story form, train with the students. Each character has a distinctive personality that can be used to help teach life lessons to Tiger students.
The rank and testing system used by the Tigers is slightly different than that of the Karate for Kids. Tigers can earn animal patches to display on their Dobok and animal print belts.
