ATA Tigers (ages 4-6)

Warrenton, MO (preschool - first grade)

Our ATA Tigers program is developed specifically for children ages 4 through 6. 

​ATA Tiger characters help engage students and teach TAEKWONDO tenets such as courtesy, respect, and discipline.

Classes are safe and fun!   Our fast paced 30 minute classes are designed to improve children's motor skills, enhance their ability to pay attention, and follow directions, and at the same time builds their confidence and courage to try new things.

​The taekwondo based curriculum provides students with the most fun and exciting training methods available for this age group. The program works in conjunction with other programs, thereby emphasizing the same important monthly themes and value system. Upon graduation, ATA Tigers move into the "Junior" or "Big Kid" program.

​Tigers can earn eight collectable animal patches to display on their uniforms as follows: Turtle for white belt; Tiger for orange; Cheetah for yellow; Lion for camo; Eagle for green; Phoenix for purple; Dragon for blue; Cobra for brown; Panther for red. 


No soul or spirit is ever too young to start it’s own journey. The foundations of our morals, values, and core character traits are formed in our early years. For this reason, the ATA Tigers program is an essential way to enhance the growth and development of pre-school and kindergarten aged children.

Why You Should Choose ATA Tigers


U.S. Center for SafeSport Trained

To keep sport safe, we identify safe instructors, volunteers and staff before they start working with athletes.

"S" is for Safe!  If an instructor needs to talk to an athlete or treat an injury, two adults are always present.

"A" is for Action! - When something isn't right, we take action.  Parents are encouraged and welcomed to watch classes and help make sure the climate is safe for ALL kids.

"F" is for Fun! - We play well as a team and treat others with respect. Even if we don't win, we still have fun because we love to play our sport.

"E" is for Everyone! - The rules apply to all of us. We treat each other fairly. Everyone is welcome to participate.


About Secrets...

A good secret is one that makes us happy and feel good, like a secret birthday party where you get to yell "Surprise!" 

Bad secrets are ones that make you feel scared or icky and you should NEVER keep to yourself.  They are things you should tell your parent(s) or a loved one who takes care of you.  If a grown-up ever tells you that you have to keep a secret "or else something bad will happen," that would be a bad secret.


SafeSport provides free training for Parents and children of all ages.  Find out more at
