Tiny Tigers

Tiny Tigers Class

In Tiny Tigers classes we will be preparing your child with skills needed to learn martial arts, however you will find many of these skills will also help them in school and other social situations.

They will be taught pre martial art skills in a fun non violent manner. These skills will be vital to help them access Thai Tiger and Junior Thai boxing classes in the future.

These include:

Physical skills - balance, co-ordination, flexibility and overall fitness.

Mental skills - listening, following instructions and concentration.

Emotional and Social skills - building confidence, making friends, respect, learning manners, following rules.

Your child will be playing games to develop fitness, flexibility, balance, co-ordination, such as team games, assault courses and races. some of these games will include punching and kicking pads to develop thai boxing skills.

Tiny tiger classes will be kept small, no more then 16 children per class, this way we can ensure they all get the focus and attention they need.

So book quick before the places are taken!

Thai Tigers

Thai Tigers Class

Thai Tigers classes continue from Tiny Tigers and will continue to develop your child's physical, mental, social and emotional skills further.

If your child has not attended Tiny Tigers this is not a problem, we will ensure they are given the support needed to access the activities and games.

The games and activities will be similar to those in Tiny Tigers but will become more challenging! For example, more punches on the bag at the end of the course, longer and more difficult assault courses etc. The older children need the challenge to keep them motivated and interested, but they will still be having fun!

Along side the games the children will now be preparing to become Junior Thai Boxers. We will be teaching them simple techniques, different punches, kicks and how to hold the focus and Thai pads properly for partner training.

Strict rules imposed to ensure safety and it will be reinforced where we do and do not use these skills! These skills are taught as a technique to use in class and on the pads only!

Again we keep the Thai Tigers classes small with a maximum of 20 children per class. We want your child to have the attention they need to learn to the best of their ability.

White Belt Club

White Belt Club

This class is for children who are seven years old plus or have attended Tigers classes for a length of time and graded to red tag level.

The aim of this class is to provide more challenge for students who have skills and physical ability to move on from Tigers but not quite old enough/big enough for Juniors. During this class students will work on skills, techniques and combination drills to gain red, brown and black tags and will be fully prepared to move into a Juniors class with ease and confidence.

Many students will be ready for their yellow belt grading by the time they move into Juniors and will usually gain yellow belts with tags! This class may also suit new members who may be old enough for Juniors but who are less confident. This class is usually smaller in numbers and taught in a more supported way. It will give them a good base of skills and techniques before starting juniors.

As with all Hertfordshire Martial Arts classes 1st class is free!

Recommendations

My little angels have been going to martial arts at Hertfordshire martial arts for a while now. My boy started when he was 4 and is showing real signs of improvement. My girl started when she was 3. She has been going now for about six months and she loves it.

Class atmosphere is very good. Emma has a real gift with children. The kids learn without knowing that they are learning. There is also emphasis placed on keeping the punching and kicking and punching to class/pads which is the reason I wanted my boy to go in the first place.

I would highly recommend the school to other parents. Bring your kids and watch their confidence grow…

A very pleased parent.
