ATA Tigers is a unique program for children ages 3-6.
(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.)
In addition to our internationally recognized Karate for Kids program, we offer the Taekwondo for Tigers program. The Tiger 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. In addition, the program is designed to improve children's motor skills and enhance their ability to pay attention and follow directions. All classes are taught using the most safe, fun, and exciting instruction methods available for this age group. This program works in conjunction with the Karate for Kids program, thereby emphasizing the same important monthly themes and value system.
Just like in the Karate for Kids program, Tigers have their own unique victory bag tag and "Victory Stars." Stars are earned in the same way as the Karate for Kids program, with slight modifications in recognition of the preschool age of the child. For instance, one of the ways a child can receive a Victory Star is by parents recording the child's good deeds on a Good Deed Sheet and turning it in to the instructor. Four different colored victory patches are available to accommodate all the stars that can be earned by a high achieving Tiger.
