Little Tigers & Big Tigers are Karate Classes specially designed for children between the ages of 4 and 9 years old.
Osuna Karate teaches Little Tigers & Big Tigers class on Saturdays from 9:15 am to 10:00 am at the Springbank Dojo.

 This is a full year session September to June divided in 3 blocks: Fall, Winter & Spring

Little Tigers: It is a class designed for children ages 4 through 6 years old, who are just beginning to develop gross motor skills, hand-eye coordination,  concentration  and attention skills and get ready for more organized activities at this preschool-kindergarten years.

The Little Tigers classes use the "concrete reasoning" stage of development that the students are in at this age, where everything is black and white to them, in order to teach them about following rules, working with others and cause and effect of work and reward.
On the physical development side students are improving coordination, balance, body coordination. Activities such as hand blocks, punches and kicks are taught to help build a base from which self defense tactics are built.

Big Tigers / Children beginners
: It is a class designed for children ages 7 to 9 years old, who are in school settings and have developed gross motor skills, have spatial awareness, coordination, attention, concentration skills have been reached to their natural development level. This class is more focused on using these skills and integrate them into Karate. In this class kids will get their first level (Kyu) completed at the end of the year and if all requisites are completed.
Osuna Karate offers a unique experience in our Little Tigers and Big Tigers classes.
As is the focus with all of our classes, we want to meet the student on their current learning level and apply training which addresses their physical needs as well.
Mentally, we challenge students to build memory skills with names of techniques and other terminology, as well as learning about how to use physical skills to escape and seek help.

Our Little Tigers program has proven to be a great development opportunity. After 7 years of running this program, many of the young practitioners in our regular class are Little Tigers' alumni.
