Ticconi's ATA Martial Arts
The ATA Tiger curriculum program was developed specifically for preschool-age children ages 3 through 6. This program offers children a strong foundation in essential character qualities such as courtesy, respect, and discipline. In addition, the program is designed to improve children’s motor skills and enhance their ability to pay attention and follow directions. This curriculum should provide students with the most fun and exciting training methods available for this age group.
The rank and testing system used by the Tigers is slightly different than others as well. Tigers can earn eight collectible animal patches to display on their uniforms as follows: Tiger for orange belt; Cheetah for yellow; Lion for camo; Eagle for green; Phoenix for purple; Dragon for blue; Cobra for brown; Panther for red.
Why you should choose ATA Tigers
One of the central tenets of all forms of martial arts is an absolute focus on self-discipline. Kids with a martial arts background, however, are continually reminded of how essential self-discipline is.
Confidence comes with achievement, so your child’s self-esteem level will get a boost with every new move they master and every belt they earn.
Improve Listening Skills
In order to master the skills being taught and advance through the belt ranks, your child will have to exercise superior listening skills.
Instills A Sense of Respect
Respect is not what you know, it’s what you do. Learning Songahm Taekwondo will teach your child that you earn respect by showing respect towards others. When attending classes, your child will be learning lessons in respect along with the exciting techniques and skills of Songahm Taekwondo.
