Martial artists are like walking, talking superheroes. Power cards link martial arts skills to the cornerstones of character development: practicing self control, respect for others, and self discipline. The kids want the cards, but they have to successfully complete the mission on the back before receiving the next card. Keeping their room clean. Not interrupting when someone is talking. Thanking you for bringing them to class. These are their missions, and the doorway to responsible adulthood.

PowerCard Series


Tiger Series Checklist (pdf)
This first series introduces students to the Power Card program. Cards are earned by completing character based missions. Each task relates back to one of the three rules we live by as martial artists. When you complete the task and the appropriate supporting adult has signed off on it, you bring their checklist in to receive their next card. Once you complete all nine tasks of a series you receive the Bonus Card.

The new illustrated version of the Tiger Series are in and they look AMAZING! If you already earned Tiger Series cards, you will need to re-earn the new ones. We created a fun alternate checklist with new missions to make it fun and interesting :)
