Tiny Tigers Program:Our Tiny Tigers Program is for ages 4-6 years old. This program focuses on childrens safety and character building. We teach Fire Safety, Stranger Danger, and Personal Safety with strong focus on Character Development. The obstacle courses are fun too!
Tae Kwon Do Juniors:Our TKD JRs Program is for ages 6-12 years old. This program focuses on basic techniques, poomsae, and weapons. As students progress, they learn more advanced techniques and weapons! Weapons include single and double nun-chuks, single and double escrima stick, kamas and bo staff!
Adult Classes:Our Adult Program is for ages 13 and above. Unlike the childrens programs, the adult classes focus more on conditioning and self-defense. We believe practical self-defense is the best way to go! We taper our workouts to meet anyones goals no matter what your fitness level!
"creating leaders with integrity!"
We believe Martial Arts isn't just punches and kicks. During your childs first lesson we will go over our 7 magic words sheet which promotes courtesy inside the Dojang and out! Each week we talk about different black belt attributes such as Goal Setting, Self Control, Integrity, Perseverance and more! We encourage parents to bring notes about the great things your future black is doing at home to reinforce those great habits!

Creating Leaders with Integrity!
"As a teacher I feel Mr. St.Clair's teaching style is developmentally appropriate for the age groups and he understands each kid is different.Tiny Tigers not only learn taekwondo, they also learn personal safety, fire safety, and stranger danger.He teaches them social emotional skills needed in their every day lives like compassion, perseverance, and courage. He challenges kids to use these traits in their daily lives and then recognizes their efforts in class, in front of everyone.I highly recommend this school for all ages and abilities."- Sheila Vasquez
