About our Lions, Tigers & Bears™ Program: Our Lions, Tigers and Bears program is a complete martial arts and character education curriculum designed to lay a strong foundation to prepare young students, age 4-8, for more advanced martial arts training in the future. The LTB program was created and trademarked by TNT instructor, Patty Troia, as a curriculum specifically designed to meet the unique needs and learning abilities of young children. Based on more than 31 years of teaching experience, the LTB program was developed to introduce both martial arts and character skills to young students using age appropriate teaching methodologies.
In addition to self-defense techniques and self-defense awareness skills to help keep your child safe, children also learn basic martial arts techniques, presented in a fun and exciting way, to promote the development of motor skills. The Lions, Tigers and Bears program also includes a complete character education program to instill important life skills and character traits.
