White Tiger School of Teakwondo, family founded in 1994, is one of the few schools in Connecticut certified and licensed with the International Taekwon-Do Federation (ITF). ITF certification means that rank earned in our school is recogonized in any ITF school anywhere in the United States and world. Our students regularly compete nationally and internationally. Over the years we have produced a number of world champions.
The way we teach ITF style Taekwondo is different from Karate, Jiu Jitsu, Aikido, Hapkido, Judo and many other styles of martial arts because we treat Taekwondo as an art, a way of life. Adult practitioners find over time this art grows to become a pillar in their lives and a source of strength and determination.
And it's even more pronounced in our children's program. We accept children of all ability. Parent's quickly notice how training at White Tiger School of Taekwondo positively manifests itself in their children. Better balance, clearer speech, direct eye contact, attention to others, an inner calm are just some of the comments we hear regularly.
Our Mission is for all our students to reach their full potential. Visit us any time to find out more and ask other parents you meet at our school how their children have benefited from our family friendly approach to martial arts.
White Tiger children's program is geared for children aged 4yrs old to 11yrs old who are ranked white belt and above. We recommend that children train 2 days a week either Mon and Wed or Tue and Thur.
Our classes are heavy on discipline and provide a positive environment for each child to maximize their TaeKwon-Do learning experience and potential. As children move through our program, each child has the opportunity to compete in local and world competitions, seminars, specialty classes.
If you are thinking about Taekwondo for your child we encourage you to visit us during class time so both of you can see, first hand, what Taekwondo is all about and have an opportunity to get answers to any questions you may have.
