At Black Tiger Karate we strive to give children a strong foundation built with structure and discipline, meanwhile entertaining and educating in a semi-fun environment.
Our classes have a good warm up and stretching to help prevent muscle injuries.
In this class environment we have a diverse range of students whom showing a different levels of attributes. Conditioning our student physically is one of our priorities, but also building a strong foundation is part of our art. We also teach karate history and its basic language to widen the mind. Our structure is based on mental and physical abilities, which creates our body and mind to work as one. Building respect, confidence, modesty, enlightenment, and street awareness in each student is important to us.
These classes consist of three elements, which are – “Kihon” (Basics) we teach the foundations of defensive movements of blocks and counter movements from high blocks. – Kumite (engagement) we create an environment and situations where the basics can be applied and teach how to react properly in many different occasions. – Kata (Form) this is where the student must show discipline, and learns to do the movements in sequences to perform before their piers and instructors. Black Tiger teaches the children to be a good role model for other students whom are at the same level or lower and the community.
