Mighty Tiger Classes
Martial Arts: Preschoolers/Toddlers
Children Ages 3 year-olds to 5 year-olds
At Asheville Sun Soo, our Mighty Tiger classes serve preschool-aged kids (3-5) in a playful yet structured and disciplined environment. When toddlers learn karate, they learn manners, balance, listening skills, and more. We find that parents are often looking for activities for preschool-aged toddlers or after school activities for kindergartners. Our classes at Sun Soo are much more than an activity for toddlers. These classes offer a significant opportunities for toddlers to learn life skills. These classes are designed to develop fundamentals in critical areas for kids at this age. Finding classes for 3 year-olds and 4 year-olds that are not in the typical “mommy and me” format is a difficult task. In the Mighty Tigers class, emphasis is placed on helping our toddler students develop in a well-rounded manner: socially, with excellent manners, taking initiative, and being a contribution; physically, with balance, coordination, reflex development, and left/right distinction; emotionally, with emphasis on personal responsibility; mentally, with attention to detail, listening skills, and the ability to focus; and in the early stages of self defense, by learning to distinguish between healthy and harmful situations, and how to get away from danger.
Most of our toddlers in the Mighty Tigers class develop so well in this program that they graduate to the Kids Beginner classes and are able to continue a long and fruitful practice built on their excellent Mighty Tiger foundation. Our Mighty Tiger classes have superb teaching ratios and are led by Master Amy Dexter, currently a 4th degree black belt and Director of Mighty Tigers, who holds a B.S. in Elementary and Special Education. Master Dexter is accompanied by several other adult instructors as well as adult and teen assistant instructors.
