Martial Arts Lincoln and Omaha NE:  TaeKwonDo

Tiger Rock Martial Arts Academy offers TaeKwonDo for children and adults. With 6 locations in the greater Lincoln area and 2 in Omaha we have continued to expand to serve our communities.

We know that students of various ages learn in different ways and in fact have very different goals.  To meet each individuals needs, we have customized training programs for each group that is divided by age and then further divided by rank as students progress. We offer the following TaeKwonDo Martial Arts programs:

Tiger Cubs: (ages 4-5)

In the Tiger Cubs program students work on developing the foundational skills to be successful in our Junior TaeKwonDo program. Social skills, listening skills, stranger awareness, coordination and confidence are all a huge part of the Tiger Cubs class.  We get great feedback from teachers and parents all the time when our students start school.  Consistently this feedback indicates that students who train in our Martial Arts/ Taekwondo program are simply heads and shoulders above their classmates in every field from behavior to focus and all the other skills a child needs to be successful in an academic environment.

Junior TaeKwonDo: (ages 6-12)

The Martial Arts Junior Taekwondo program has a wealth of benefits for students during critical formative years including:

  • Increased confidence and self-esteem
  • Emotional maturity
  • Improved focus, listening and concentration skills
  • World class physical fitness and health
  • Improved nutritional choices and healthy lifestyle
  • REAL self-defense skills
  • Anger Management
  • And surrounding the students with POSITIVE ROLE MODELS!

Adult TaeKwonDo:   (Teens and Adults)

The Adult Martial Arts Taekwondo program has many of the same benefits of the Junior Martial Arts TaeKwonDo program but also incorporates curriculum not offered to the juniors including more combative skills and techniques that are needed by adults in LAST-RESORT situations.  Adults who participate in our martial arts program enjoy:

  • Improved health and body composition
  • Stress Relief
  • Improved flexibility
  • REAL martial arts self-defense skills
  • Network of positive, like minded adults with similar goals

We enrolled at Tiger Rock Academy for our son when he was in 6th grade for a variety of reasons.  As parents we wanted to make sure that he grew up to be confident in himself as well as others.  It was also important that we enhanced a strong work ethic along with developing him in leadership, good values, and a good sense of self worth.

When we visited one of Tiger Rock Academy, we were very impressed.  We saw all the above offered. The martial arts class was structured and we witnessed respect for parents, teachers, fellow students and for themselves.

Through martial arts training at Tiger Rock Academy over the last couple of years, our son is very confident in himself and sees the possibilities that he can do anything he sets his mind on.  His grades are better in school, he doesn’t just have more friends…he has great friends (and the right kind).  He has also lost weight and improved his physical strength. The thing I love the most his how respectful he is to his mom and dad and other members of our family.  Our son is turning into a Leader.

Also, we are parents of 5 children.  I have been a soccer, volleyball, football, and baseball mom.  This is the only activity that I can honestly say that everyone cheers.  There are no parents yelling at the coaches, no parents yelling at their kids, and no kids blaming others.  It has been a very positive experience!

Martial Arts Lincoln NE:  Jiu-Jitsu/Grappling Program

In addition to our core Martial Arts TaeKwonDo program, Tiger Rock Academy also offers Jiu-Jitsu and Grappling instruction to help round out our students martial arts training and experience.  Jiu-Jitsu/Grappling is designed to give students the tools and techniques to effectively defend themselves when conflicts go to the ground.  Students learn to defend themselves against larger and stronger opponents by using our martial arts ground fighting systems for men and women.

An important difference between our Martial Arts Jiu-Jitsu/Grappling program and others you may find is our focus on SAFETY.  Our martial arts program is filled with professionals, doctors, attorneys, moms, dads and everyone else in our community who DO NOT want to show up to work, school or even their house the next day looking like they have been to “Fight Club”.  EVERY student is charged with the safety of their partner, so everyone protects everyone else in the lesson.  Students with the wrong attitude or who are careless are simply dismissed from the martial arts program. So if you are looking for an EFFECTIVE and SAFE Jiu-Jitsu/Grappling martial arts program then Tiger Rock Academy is the place for you!

Jiu-Jitsu Martial Arts at Tiger Rock Academy gives me a new way to workout.  It also brings the benefits of learning a new and practical form of self-defense.   This martial arts program is very safe and the instructors are experienced and knowledgeable.  Jiu-Jitsu Martial Arts at Tiger Rock Academy increases your stamina, teaches you proper breathing and most important to me–patience.

Taking yoga has helped build both strength and flexibility. Each session is different and always leaves me feeling stronger and more energized. A few weeks after starting yoga classes at the TKD Martial Arts academy, I had to have surgery, which put me out of commission for 6 weeks. From just the short time in yoga, I could tell it had really helped build my core muscles, which made my recovery much faster and easier.  Yoga was the first thing I was back and doing at 6 weeks and it was amazing how quickly I was able to rebuild my strength and flexibility. The instructors are fantastic and they make each class truly enjoyable.

–Teresa Searls
