Our Instructors are the pride of Tiger Rock Martial Arts. These individuals have dedicated their lives to the Tiger Rock Martial Arts method and helping others learn their art. Becoming an Instructor in the Tiger Rock Martial Arts takes tremendous commitment and many hours of training. Maintaining a teaching certificate is a continuing process involving further education and annual renewal.
All Level 3, 4 and 5 instructors are required to assist teaching a minimum of 250 classes, create at least 75 written lesson planners and spend a minimum of 12 months as a Level 2 instructor before testing nationally for certification. All Level 1 and Level 2 instructors work under the guidance of a Level 4 instructor.
CPR and First Aid Certified
All Instructors who are 18 years old or older are required to maintain CPR and First Aid Certification as part of their Instructor qualifications.
Tiger Rock Martial Arts conducts background checks on all Instructors who are 18 years old or older, and Tiger Rock Martial Arts-licensed member academy directors conduct additional background checks on all volunteers, trainees, and employees who are 18 years old or older in their academies. We are serious about protecting the safety of our members.
Annual Qualification and Continuing Education
All Tiger Rock Martial Arts Instructors are required to earn a minimum amount of event credits in order to keep their certification active. This requirement was put in place for several reasons. By attending these international events, our Instructors are kept up-to-date with the latest policies and teaching methods being implemented in our organization. It is Tiger Rock Martial Arts belief that when an Instructor stops training and developing, he or she stops being a good Instructor. The continuous training and development that we require helps make the Instructor more creative, realistic, and effective, and it gives him or her much needed insight into teaching.
