The Tiny Tigers Program follows the belief that it is never too early to begin with skills to inspire confidence, self-motivation, and self-control. Through a carefully planned program tailored for the youngest among us (ages 4 to 8), here are the basic rules for our Tiny Tigers ("Tiny Tiger Creed"):
- I will obey my Parents
- I will clean my room
- I will wear my seatbelt
- I wil brush my teeth
- I will have good manners
If you can follow these rules and wish to learn about Traditional Martial Arts in our Traditional Taekwon-Do Program along with forms (hyung, poomsae, kata), board-breaking and fun non-contact sparring you are ready for Tiny Tigers classes at the Bettencourt's Taekwon-Do America.
Bettencourt's Taekwon-Do America will gladly schedule a private lesson to evaluate 3 year olds to determine if they are ready to participate in the Tiny Tigers Program.
To graduate into the Youth program from Tiny Tigers here are the requirements:
- Tiny Tigers must be at least 7 years old.
- Tiny Tigers must be recommended for transition by the Tiny Tigers Director and Grand Master Bettencourt.
