Typical Class Breakdown

In our Tiny Tigers program, our skilled martial art instructors keep the 30 minute class jam-packed with age-appropriate drills and activities, transitioning to a new one every 3-5 minutes to maximize energy, interest, and student engagement. We keep a fun and positive environment to further build your child’s confidence as we develop their character, mentality, and skills.

They say it takes a village to raise a child and we agree–the good news is, we are here to help set your child up with a successful future, inside and outside their martial art school!

What Makes Us Different from Other Karate Studios

Our martial arts classes for Tiny Tigers will build skill in all the above areas mentioned, while setting up students for success in future, more advanced self-defense techniques. We will help your little one with their strength, conditioning, and flexibility, so that when they are ready for the Juniors Program, they have the martial arts foundation they’ll need in order to be successful.

American Legacy’s innovative approach to self-defense and martial arts combined with our remodeled, state-of-the-art studio has made us the Karate class leader in Rolling Hills, Palos Verdes, and Torrance.
