I joined TSK after taking one of their introductory mother-daughter classes and I loved it! My main goal was to lose weight, but the self-discipline is as much what I love about kickboxing at Tiger Schulmann's as the exercise itself. I find it to be calming and focusing, almost like a form of meditation. Under both Sensei's and Joshu's guidance, it's a great way of keeping myself connected both mentally and physically. On top of these great results, I am losing weight and getting more toned and fit, getting stronger. I don't think of it as exercise any more--it is more of a stimulating activity that never gets boring and has become a way of life! Speaking as a woman who is over 40 and never would have thought I could get back to my 15 year old karate-loving self, I think the East Brunswick club is warm and welcoming, both fun and serious at the same time. I strongly recommend it--one visit and I think you'll be as hooked as I was.
I have been with the organization 17 years and counting. Because of my training, my experiences, as a person I gained skills that enriched every aspect of my life and helped to empower me. I have great people I train with and great instructors. My children all grew up in the organization and have taken skills and empowerment with them as well. I have not regretted the day I began training and as an over 50 year old I can say I still train to this day.
I have been training at TSMMA for 8 years. The instructors are great and welcoming. Not only do I get a great work out but I get to train with great people. I have always gone to TSMMA for the exercise and to learn self defense. I had a baby 7 months ago and I gained 50 lbs!!! With the help from Sensie Garzillo and the 90 day challenge I lost it all and then some! My husband trains now and hopefully my son will too someday. If you are sick of the gym, need to lose weight, get muscle tone or just meet some awesome people this is the place for you.
