Classes for Children

Kickin’ Cubs

KICKIN’ CUBS are students 3 to 5 years of age. These students follow a different ranking system than students 5 years of age and above. KICKIN’ CUB classes are only a half-hour in length to account for the younger student’s shorter attention span. Classes teach students reaction training, eye-hand coordination, and listening skills, along with a simplified martial arts curriculum.

The additional ranks at this level allow the KICKIN’ CUB students to progress at a more manageable rate which gives them more time to develop their martial arts skills.

The colored stripes on the White Belt are unique to KICKIN’ CUBS. These belts fit in the standard ranking system between Big Tiger White Belt/ Camo (when coming in from KC) and Big Tiger Gold Belt.

NOTE: Not all KICKIN’ CUBS will be required to earn all seven of the striped belts before progressing to a Big Tiger Belt. Early graduation from Kickin’ Cub classes to Big Tiger classes is based on the student’s comprehension of techniques and the instructor’s assessment of their readiness to move up to Big Tiger classes.

Big Tigers

BIG TIGERS are students 6 to 7 years of age. These students follow a different ranking system than students 8 years of age and above. BIG TIGER classes are only a half-hour in length to account for the younger student’s shorter attention span. If the class size is larger than 8 students, class will be 45 minutes long. Classes teach students reaction training, eye-hand coordination, and listening skills, along with a simplified martial arts curriculum.

The additional ranks at this level allow the BIG TIGER students to progress at a more manageable rate which gives them more time to develop their martial arts skills.

The colored stripes on the Camo Belt are unique to BIG TIGERS. These belts fit in the standard ranking system between White Belt and Gold Belt.

NOTE: Not all BIG TIGERS will be required to earn all seven of the camo-striped belts before progressing to a Standard Student Belt. Early graduation from BIG TIGER classes to Beginner classes is based on the student’s comprehension of techniques and the instructor’s assessment of their readiness to move up to Beginner classes.
