Hanshi Thomas L. Felder

Tigers (16 - ADULTS)

We offer adult and advance student training in Tensho Goju starting at 16 years through senior adult. The selected training is a vehicle for instilling students with knowledge and essential skills for survival on the streets and combat situations. Moreover, each session involves an intense physical workout that conditions and tones the body improving fitness levels, health and stress relief. The training encompasses a variety of developmental targets with technique delivery using hands, fingers, fist, forearms, elbows, head, knees and foot. In addition, conditioning applications are worked from standing, sitting, kneeling and ground positions for a full level of versatility.

Fighting Tigers (YOUTH 8 - 15)

Our youth training program is the foundation in developing youth ages 8 to 15 years old in Tensho Goju ideologies, concepts and theory. Master Felder is a motivator delivering positive attributes with many philosophies that keep students goal oriented to deter negative behavior patterns and negative thoughts. In addition, we place personal emphasis on education by encouraging our academy students to maintain academic level of A’s & B’s. This mental mindset combined with hundreds of self defense applications and Tensho Goju logic will give each student an advantage in a hostile situation.

Lil Tigers (YOUTH 5-7)

Our Lil Tigers program is an absolute fantastic foundation for younger children that are developing fundamental cognitive skills, as well as balance anc coordination. These Lil Tigers meet twice weekly in a group session under a curriculum specifically designed to help enhance their discipline, confidence, and respect to all. Parents will notice a gratifying difference as their child continues to grow in our academy as a posive light. Moreover, parents will have the opportunity to train with their child in the first session.
