Little Roos Curriculum

Tigers (Ages 8-14)

This class teaches Karate basics (kicking, punching, rolls, falls, and footwork), katas, ground grappling, jujitsu, and some basic stick techniques and more. This class incorporates various activities to develop the student’s concentration, coordination and other skills.

By the time a student reaches Black belt level in the Tiger Program, s/he will have the equivalent of a Brown belt in Isshinryu Karate, Small Circle Jujitsu, and Modern Arnis.

As a student is promoted through the children's program, they will earn their promotion through the school, but the curriculum is organized so that they will have the training to obtain a belt (two steps lower) in both adult classes of Small Circle Jujitsu and Modern Arnis.

Advanced Tigers

This class continues the students martial arts education by incorporating more advanced self-defense techniques, pressure point manipulation, weapons training and kata breakdown (self-defense application for moves in the kata).

Saturday from 9:45am to 10:15am.

Advanced Tigers are also welcome at Tigers classes from 5:00pm - 6:00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and the all-ages kid's class on Saturday morning from 9:00am to 9:45am.
