Similar to the Karate for Kids program, ATA Tigers have their own unique victory card and “Victory Stars.” Stars are earned in the same way as the Karate for Kids program, with slight modifications in recognition of the preschool age of the child. Four different colored victory cards are available to accommodate all the stars that can be earned by a high achieving Tiny Tiger. Except for the logo, the four victory patches are the same as the Karate for Kids patches.
Upon graduation from the Tiny Tigers program into the “Junior” or “Big Kid” program, Tigers are rewarded by the opportunity to wear the “Big Kids” or “Karate for Kids” uniform.
The rank and testing system used by the Tigers is slightly different than that of the Karate for Kids. Tigers can earn eight collectable animal patches to display on the uniform as follows:
- Tiger for orange belt;
- Cheetah for yellow;
- Lion for camo;
- Eagle for green;
- Phoenix for purple;
- Dragon for blue;
- Cobra for brown;
- Panther for red.
All eight patches, as earned, can be displayed on the child’s uniform.
