TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — With the economic uncertainties from the coronavirus, we here at ABC 27 are shining a light on businesses that are doing their part to help out the community while keeping their business open.

Tiger Rock Martial Art says, "We're open, Tallahassee" and is offering in-person classes and virtual summer camps.

Tiger Rock opened in Tallahassee in 1999.

When the state issued the stay at home order, they began doing virtual private lessons and Zoom classes.

After being closed for nearly two months, last week Tiger Rock reopened for a few classes three days a week with extra precautions and sanitary measures.

"We knew that kids and even adults would be going crazy because they lost all coaches, teachers, everything out of life, all mentors," said Brad Fantle, the director of operations at Tiger Rock Martial Arts. "So anything we could do to stay that positive roll model and stay in their lives, we're going to do that."

This summer, Tiger Rock is offering virtual summer camps, as well as their in-person or virtual academy four-week summer course.

They're also offering self-defense courses on their e-learning academy and will soon be adding a bully seminar.
