TAGB Tigers

The TAGB TIGERS is a children's club offering energetic activities that aim to put the fun into physical fitness, through the popular martial art of Tae Kwondo. We run tigers classes in our clubs at Witheridge and South Molton.

Not only will Tae Kwon do improve the level of fitness, flexibility, agility and social ability but Tigers will help the children understand what exercise is, how their body works and how important being active is. Tae Kwondo will help with disipline and respect in social aspects and will spread through out there adult lives. Activities with the Tigers include fun and games through martial arts to keep the children motivated and having fun. Tigers have been set along side with the National Curriculam requirements for Physical Education and incorporates target setting to provide easily attainable goals.

Research has shown that:

1 in 4 school children are overweight.
A large percentage of children rarely achieve the levels of activity required to maintain a strong heart and lungs.
We hope to help reverse this situation by offering children the opportunity to be active whilst learning the dynamic art of Tae Kwon Do in a safe and fun environment.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should my child wear to their first lesson ?

Any loose comfortable clothing they can move freely in, e.g. tracksuit bottoms or shorts and a T-shirt.

Does my child require any special equipment ?

No, just a small bottle of water: we have drinks breaks roughly every 15-20 minutes.

Do I need to book a place in advance ?

Due to the popularity of some of our Tigers classes, please contact us in advance to ensure availability.

Can I watch my child take part ?

Of course, parents are more than welcome to watch from the back of the class. All we ask is that noise is kept to a minimum so as not to distract the students during the lesson.

Finally

Our system of training is based on inner development and self-expression; concentration, focus, goal setting, self-achievement are the topics of discussion. Motor skill development, co-ordination, flexibility and self-awareness are the basics to the physical training.

Children learn to reach their full potential through our confidence building martial arts program. Caring Instructors provide expert training in a fun and safe environment to produce positive results.

We always make sure that each session is fun and informative, the instructors are specifically chosen for their abilities to help promote success and improvement for the individual.
