IMAGINE IF EVERY CHILD LEARNED THE RESPECT, COURTESY, AND DISCIPLINE THAT THE MARTIAL ARTS TEACHES. THE WORLD WOULD BE A DIFFERENT PLACE.

 TIGERS (5-7 years).............The youngest of the White Mountain Karate students.   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.
