Developing Leaders


Grandmaster Rick Hall believes in developing the leaders of tomorrow by giving participants the training to learn self-discipline, better focus, listening skills and self-control. These elements are essential in creating the skills and motivation needed to experience success in later years and better grades now. We also believe in creating a strong sense of commitment to community through citizenship and service. Tiger-Rock Taekwondo for youth is built on the solid principles of our tenets: Honor, Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control, Courage, Community, Strength, Humility and Knowledge.



Tiger-Rock Taekwondo helps build confidence, self-esteem, and self-defense skills. The Tiger-Rock philosophy and training techniques teach students how to successfully adapt and react to various social environments including the unexpected ones. In fact, the University of West Florida Education Department validated through research that our Taekwondo training enhances social and emotional intelligence. In addition to enhancing social skills, Tiger-Rock Taekwondo for youth teaches children how to properly protect themselves from threatening situations such as schoolyard bullying. Our program also addresses safety behaviors when confronted by a stranger.
