TIGERS (5-7 years).............The youngest of the White Mountain Karate students in our Black Belt program. The primary objectives to this program include:
- CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT......We emphasize the 8 virtues of a black belt (COURTESY, COMPASSION, MODESTY, INTEGRITY, SELF CONTROL, PERSEVERANCE, INDOMITABLE SPIRIT, AND GRATITUDE). These character traits are essential in the development of all young people.
- PHYSICAL FITNESS......We help to develop skills like coordination, balance, core strength, and flexibility. Children learn that physical fitness can be fun and rewarding through engaging drills.
- SELF DEFENSE......Conflict resolution is not solved with hitting and abusing. Students are taught different self defense strategies that can help them make better choices when it comes to defending oneself, whether against bullies or strangers.
