Martial Arts School

The Tiger-Rock System

The Tiger-Rock System is built on a single idea: to transform every student in our program into a Black Belt on and off the mat. Our elite martial arts training program is designed to develop disciplined, selfless, and courteous individuals who will make a positive impact in the Austin community & beyond.

  • Integrated martial arts training that combines various forms of martial arts
  • Real-world, street-smart self-defense training to add another layer of protection in an unpredictable world
  • Timeless life skills training that prepares students for the future starting today


Much of our martial arts system is based on the Korean martial art of taekwondo. Originating in postwar South Korea, taekwondo arrived on American shores in the early 1970s. Today, it is the most widely practiced martial art form in the world.

  • Drills focus on improving balance, coordination, and confidence through kicking, striking, and agility drills.
  • Taekwondo helps instill self-discipline in trainees of all ages. Through it, you learn the value of personal responsibility, respect for others and yourself, goal-setting, and perseverance.
  • Taekwondo yields incredible benefits for all kids and adults, including improvements in physical fitness, self-confidence, and your ability to focus.
