At Tiger Kim's Tae Kwon Do Center, your child will set short-term achievement goals every 30 days and will graduate to a new skill level (i.e. belt rank) approximately every 2-3 months. it is important for each child to learn to set short term, intermediate, and long-term goals. It every student's goal to acquire the Black Belt in approximately 36 months. The Black Belt serves as an important tool to build tenacity, as well as to teach your child the importance of consistency in any activity or program.

In order to be promoted in belt rank, your child will be required to participate in and successfully complete exams sanctioned by the school. During these exams your child will be evaluated in skill level. More importantly however, the degree of improvement, the will to succeed, and positive attitude demonstrated by the student will be stressed. It is important for all parents, relatives and teachers to attend promotional testing and witness the children's progress, thus encouraging them to continue their study of Tae Kwon Do.

We offer a special "Star Award System" for children. Parents keep monthly report cards, designed by Master Tiger Kim, which encourages children to create good positive habits at home, such as finishing tasks, keeping their room clean and listening to parents. Every month children bring this report card to class and if they have a good parent report, they receive a "star".


All young people in the program are asked to bring copies of their grades from school at the end of each marking period. Those who show improvement in grades will be openly recognized. Those who show a drop in grades or exhibit poor grades will be privately counseled.


It is constantly stressed to students that they must never use Tae Kwon Do skills to be abusive or offensive, and their skills may only be used defensively. We, the instructors, make sure to be outstanding role models for our students and live up to the Black Belt code.
