TIGER CLAW KUNG FU ACADEMY is a martial arts training center with the purpose of increasing the depth of its cultural roots and enhances the lives of children and adults alike. By providing children with opportunities to realize their full potential through fulfilling life experiences, our academy is their Dream maker.
The criteria for dreams to become realities is based upon whether the dream or experience, if granted for the youth, will be one that will enrich the child’s life above and beyond those experiences encountered every day. As a martial arts academy, “TCKFA” is committed to the idea that even one adolescent or childhood experience may touch a child’s life forever.
By granting “Dreams” for children we increase their self-esteem, confidence, sense of self-worth while providing them with a positive and wonderful experience that they may bring with them throughout the rest of their lives. Moreover, research has shown that the difference between success and failure in a person’s life can be affected by the presence of positive intervention during childhood. That is why “TCKFA” is committed to play an essenssial role in our kid’s lives.

Students utilize their training to learn to make changes from within to affect their outward lives. Challenges are met with enthusiasm because of the promise of positive results. Self-confidence is cultivated through patience and gentle guidance. The martial arts student learns to optimize time, guaranteeing an upward spiral of successful events to shape the essence of his/her life. One constant impression remains: everyone who leaves after training at the kwoon/dojo has had the workout of his/her life! Our comprehensive course study insures a complete martial arts experience for beginning and advanced students alike.
