Great Instructors

Head Instructor Tyler Bailey and his Certified Instructor Team dedicate themselves to providing you and your child a fun, safest, and energetic martial arts experience. With over a half a century of martial arts experience between the staff, the Tiger-Rock Team provides wonderful, encouraging instruction to students of all ages.

Age-Based Curriculum

At Tiger-Rock, we believe that martial arts training should be optimized for each age group. That’s why we offer four programs based on age—Tiger-Cubs (ages 4 to 5), Juniors (ages 6-11), Youth/Teens (ages 12-15), and Adult (ages 16+). Each program features a unique curriculum designed to match the physical and cognitive ability of that age group. As a result, students get an enriched martial arts educational experience.

Real World Self-Defense & Life Skills

Many students take martial arts classes to pick up vital life skills, such as self-defense. We teach real world self-defense, helping you learn techniques that will keep you and your family safe when it counts most. In addition, we help you pick up  on other rich life skills such as focus, self-confidence, and discipline. Moreover, as part of self-defense and life skills training for younger students, we focus on anti-bullying, stranger awareness, and evasion strategies.
