The lesson consists of a warm up, followed by a variety of karate stances, blocks, strikes, kicks, punches and kata. Tiger Tigers also get the chance to partake in sparring and this is delivered in a variety of ways; focus pads, prearranged sparring drills, freestyle sparring and a lots of other different activities to provide children with multiple ways to learn.
Tiny Tigers have an adapted grading syllabus where they are able to earn merit badges for a variety of techniques they learn - these are called badge days and are held every month.
