Become more focused, fit, and disciplined with martial arts

Enrolling into a martial arts class can be a life-changing experience. So many students, both young and old, have improved their ability to focus, their health, and their discipline at Tiger-Rock.

Focus is a major part of taekwondo instruction. Our instructors teach the value of making sure you concentrate and follow directions. You will learn to pay attention to detail as you learn the various moves and patterns on the mat. Unsurprisingly, a lot of this will translate from the mat to other aspects of your life, whether it is work, school, or just chores around the house!

Martial arts training can make you healthier, too! Taking martial arts classes can improve your cardiovascular health. It’s almost like going to the gym! Plus, martial arts can help practitioners lose weight, tone muscles, and build core strength. For kids, it is a great after school activity to keep them active. For adults, martial arts is a great way to relieve stress after a long day.

Finally, martial arts will help you become more disciplined. You will make certain changes to adapt to the martial arts lifestyle. From additional punctuality to changes into your diet, martial arts training can help transform you in more ways than you can imagine.

    Highly recommend! This location is always super clean! The entire staff is extremely friendly and even though there are a lot of students, they always seem to have time for every single student's needs whether it be to tie their belt, … More help with karate gear or advice. Being new to the area, this karate studio has been very welcoming and informative.

    Tiger Rock has changed my son's life for the better. Colt has dyspraxia and Tae Kwon Do has improved his life immeasurably. We love the staff and they are always available to help if we need it.

    We LOVE Tiger-Rock. We have our 7 and 5 year old enrolled and the instructors and helpers have been incredible. Our 7 year old has Down Syndrome and they have gone above and beyond to make sure he’s included-they usually have someone with … More him to help with form and they usually keep him near his sister. We appreciate everyone there including the other students who are all great kids. Very glad we happened upon this great group!

    They teach the children much more than martial arts. They will help the younger kids learn respect, diligence, responsibility, and many more life skills that aren't always taught unless by the parents. Everyone has always acted very … More professional and do a wonderful job at communicating with the parents.

    Wonderful staff and positive environment! We had one class here and were super impressed with the staff, facility and overall experience. This environment is so wonderfully refreshing compared to other places our daughter has trained. … More The kids have fun! The staff is professional, capable and respectful-not just to each other, but to the kids that look up to them as well. It is a bit farther of a drive for us but the peace of mind is worth it! So glad we found this place!!

    My 4 year old son had expressed interest in learning martial arts. Tiger Rock of Hagerstown, Md was recommended to me by a friend that also has a child my sons age in the program. I called and by the time the call was over I had every bit … More of information I was looking for plus more! Two days later we decided to try out the 3 class trial and my son is now an enrolled tiger cub and loving every single minute of it. He would attend class every day if he could! Highly recommend! ((( the staff members are all top notch also )))

    Tiger Rock is amazing. My children have trained here for over a year, and their growth on the mat and in the real world is commendable. In addition to taekwondo my children participate in XP weapons. On one occasion they left their weapons … More at home for a class. Instead of telling me sorry you have to go I was allowed to borrow weapons so my children could complete class. Tiger rock Rocks!!!
    Update: Tiger Rock is still amazing!!! The instructor team is amazing and the Tiger Rock families are amazing. I couldn't have chosen a better team for my daughters' taekwondo journey. They began this journey with the Amazing Ms. McGee, and are just as privileged to continue with Mr. Ash. My girls have learned to deescalate, but they also know how to defend themselves should they ever need to.
