Tiger Schulmann's Martial Arts | Group Shot

USKA Fight Night Proving Ground For Team TSMMA

By Competition News No Comments

Bobby Smith and Gerry DeJesus have spent thousands of hours training their Martial Arts Skills. The two Tiger Schulmann’s fighters were given the chance to display those hard earned Kickboxing talents at USKA Fight Night. Irv Althouse has long provided the most successful promotion for Pennsylvania fighters to get their Kickboxing careers started and that’s just what Smith and DeJesus were hoping to do.

Bobby Smith was up first, the sixteen year old TSMMA Feasterville Sempai making his second debut. A scheduling mix up had him facing a 31 year old in the summer of 2013. That fight was turned into an exhibition and the long wait to make a real debut had Smith amped up.

Smith faced a tough matchup against 18 year old Sean Terry. Terry brought a victory into the ring with him and had not only the age, but competition experience advantage as well. What Smith had was a height and reach advantage. The 6’1″ Smith was towering over Terry and he used that height to it’s full advantage.

Smith plastered Terry with jabs and low kicks right from the opening bell. At one point he landed three low kicks in less than ten seconds to the same spot on Terry’s leg. Smith’s opponent chose to take a knee and use the standing eight count to try and recoup. It didn’t work as Smith came right back out and blasted a round kick. Terry caught it, but ate four punches for his trouble. As soon as he let go of Smith’s leg he ate another low kick and took a knee for the final time.

See the fight here.

DeJesus was coming off a debut victory of his own, looking to build his record to 2-0. The young TSMMA Bethlehem students now trains regularly with Shihan Simpson at TSMMA Allentown and his hard training would serve him well in this explosive matchup. 

DeJesus had a strong opponent in Eddie Alvarez (not that Eddie Alvarez). The two would spend six minutes trading shots and earning the respect of everyone in the house.

DeJesus started out strong using quick movement to create angles and ultimately rock Alvarez with some powerful punches early in round 1. In fact at one point it looked like Alvarez might have trouble continuing as he was wobbly legged. A funny thing happened a minute in though as Alvarez regained his legs and came right back after DeJesus.

It would be the pivotal Round of the fight as DeJesus traded hard shots with Alvarez but either fighter could have been awarded the advantage.

Round 2 was a beautiful one for DeJesus as he stayed right on top of Alvarez from the beginning. The Bethlehem fighter was landing hard shots to the head of Alvarez in combination. He again rocked Alvarez and left his opponent wobbly legged.  This time DeJesus didn’t let up and continued his dominance through the end of the Round.

Alvarez would once again show his warrior spirit making it an amazing learning experience for DeJesus. It was the kind of fight of which future champions are made. Alvarez came right back at DeJesus in the 3rd Round. The two were trading power shots with each landing and staggering the other. The end of Round 3 left the crowd on the edge of their seats. It seemed clear the fighters traded the last two rounds but the first was up for grabs and no one knew what the judges would decide.

Judge one announced 29-28 for DeJesus, judge two 29-28 for Alvarez, and finally judge three 29-28 for DeJesus. Shihan Simpson and the young DeJesus were airborn in the corner as they displayed their excitement for the hard fought victory.

It was a proving ground fight for the young TSMMA Bethlehem fighter, one which could very well launch him towards a highly successful Kickboxing career.

Congratulations to our two young TSMMA Fight team members for their incredible victories on Saturday night. And thanks to USKA for once again providing the battleground for those victories.

Kickboxing beats the winter blues

Winter Blues


Kickboxing beats the winter blues!

As the days get shorter and the nights get colder, many people begin to suffer from the winter blues. Seasonal Affective Disorder Is a problem that affects millions of people throughout the world. Symptoms can include: Suicidal thoughts, depression and lack of energy. It also causes a craving for simple carbohydrates which leads to weight gain and other health problems.  A great way to help beat the winter blues is to add an authentic Kickboxing routine to your schedule.

Martial arts classes really hit your cardio

Happiness is Kickboxing


Kickbox your way to a great mood!

Studies have shown that a way to get past the winter duldrums, is to exercise regularly and be aware of your diet. Watch your carbohydrate intake so you don’t add excess weight and get your heart and lungs pumping to increase those endorphins for that natural high.

To many people that suffer from this condition, the thought of exercise can create a problem. The reason that our kickboxing program is different is the fact that it is authentic kickboxing. When our members come in for class, it isn’t just exercise that they get. All members also receive an education in self-defense in every kickboxing class. Instead of thinking of it as exercise, members consider it an activity. This makes it much easier to stick with and train on a consistent basis.

Enjoying the benefits of Tiger Schulmann's Kickboxing program

Our members make new friends to train with and enjoy motivating each other in every kickboxing class. Each class is taught by an expert kickboxing instructor with many years experience in keeping members motivated. Even when members come to train, in a down mood, they will always leave in an energized and happier state of mind. Part of our program, at no extra charge, is nutrional counseling so that you will know which foods to avoid in order to keep you healthy as well.

As you can see, kickboxing here is a great way to stay healthy mentally and physically. Whether you suffer from seasonal depression or not, everyone needs to be focussed on their health. Now is a good time to get started in our kickboxing program and be a healthier, better person.

Martial Arts Classes Teach Self Defense and Fitness

By TSMMA Wayne No Comments

There are two components to Tiger Schulmann’s Mixed Martial Arts Adult Program. The first is physical conditioning and the second is self defense.

Part 1 Physical Conditioning!

Any effective fitness program is going to consist of three parts. Cardiovascular conditioning, strength training, and flexibility.

Cardio will give you more energy and burn calories.There is nothing worse than waking up tired, feeling sluggish all day long and then just wanting to “veg” in front of the TV when you get home from work.  A good workout involving cardiovascular training will boost your energy levels.  Increased energy will make you feel better and allow you to do the things you enjoy or just keep up with the kids! Our martial program will really push your cardio.

Martial arts classes really hit your cardio

Burning calories and increasing energy levels through cardio training

Burning calories is what people think of when they picture working out.  Performing an activity over and over again until your sweating and feeling fatigue.  Just one of Tiger Schulmann’s Martial Arts Classes will burn over 800 calories in an hour.  One of the best calorie burning workouts as studied and reported by Newsday Magazine.

Strength training builds muscle.  Burning calories helps get rid of the fat tissue, and strength training builds the new leaner muscle tissue. This lean muscle will improve your appearance and make you stronger.  Every martial arts class is full strength building exercises, punches, kicks, push-ups, crunches, squats, and even burpees!

Martial arts classes always end with a few rounds of  body weight exercises

Squats build lean muscle as well as hitting your cardio

This lean muscle will also increase your metabolism.  Metabolism is the process by which your body converts what you eat and drink into energy.  A higher metabolism will give you the feeling of having more energy and will actually help you burn more calories.  Every martial arts class builds metabolism increasing muscle.

Flexibility just so happens to be the most neglected part of many workout programs, even though it equally important as strength training and cardio.  Flexibility will help increase your range of motion and prevent injury.  Every Martial Arts class ends with a complete stretch to help in these areas.  People very often hurt themselves doing something they’ve done a thousand times before that never should have hurt them.  Not to mention feeling sore and stiff in areas that could be relieved with a stretching routine.

Martial arts class always involve stretching

A proper cool down is the perfect opportunity to stretch

So to sum it all up, Tiger Schulmann’s Mixed Martial Arts will help you achieve total fitness which includes Cardio, Strength, and Flexibility.  Hitting a heavy bag, muay thai pad or punch mitt will give resistance to help build the muscles stronger.  A 10 round high intensity workout will build cardio. And a complete stretch will help you cool down and improve range of motion.

Kickboxing in Wayne Provides Total Fitness

How is the gym working out for you?  For a select few people it provides all the results advertised.  For the vast majority it provides a disposal for your hard earned income.  Tried kickboxing lately?

Kickboxing at Tiger Schulmann’s not only provides an amazing workout, but also develops and teaches the concepts of self defense.  In fact, it is this aspect of Tiger Schulmann’s Complete Self Defense program that gets you into great shape.

Adults: Training and Lifestyle

By TSMMA Garden City No Comments

Training and Lifestyle


Senpai Inoshima awards Anthony with his blue belt

Steve awards Anthony with his blue belt.

Sempai Inoshima & Anthony Chouloute

Intense cardio can be your best friend or your worst enemy. Your workout can be an hour long, fully focused, relentless, get away to red and black matted paradise. Or, your workout can be an hour long session where you plead for mercy every minute. Your leg is heavy but you’ll have to lift it. Your arms, back, and shoulders are begging for a nap, but you have 30 seconds left until round #4 starts. In these moments gravity takes over. Once that happens you my friend are officially “dragging”. We’ve all been there. Some days are better than others. Ultimately, what is it that causes you to go from having the eye of the tiger one class to having the eye of a raccoon  that was startled during the day?

 The answer is Bad Training. I hate to tell you this but Bad Training occurs at home.





You can be in the best shape of your life but training while exhausted…is well…training while exhausted. It’s difficult to function on lack of sleep let alone perform x amount of knee kicks, punches then strength training. Even if you manage to stimulate your mind & body enough to get you through the day, your crash is imminent. I was once so tired I fell asleep while eating. NO Lie. The fork was in my mouth with the food on it. My stomach said, “chew”. My mind said, “sleep”. In between nodding out and chewing it took me twenty minutes to eat a bite of a biscuit.

If you know you have to train the next day, make sure you get enough rest.



Will power is an amazing asset in all facets of life. Proper preparation assists your confidence level and doesn’t force you to rely only on your will power. There is a certain sense of security in knowing, what comes next, has been prepared for. Once you condition proper preparation and planning into your training, you have officially incorporated training into your lifestyle. At the “lifestyle level” you never dread your next work out: you’re eager for it. When your confidence level is high you embrace a challenge opposed to running from it.

 “You can’t expect your confidence to kick in when you can barely stay awake.”

My Recommendation:

8 Hours of Sleep!

 No tossing and turning. No waking up in the middle of the night. I mean a full relaxed 8 Hours of active sleep.

It’s important that you feel ” rejuvenated” when you wake up. Good energy is a great way to start any day. If you don’t want to get out of bed, and you subject your alarm clock to verbal abuse or worse, than you’re not starting your day properly.

Instead of Carpe Diem! I say Carpe!..(what is sleep in latin?)…Sleep! Carpe Sleep!

You get home and attack that bed at a set time. Punch it like you would the training bag. Once  you’ve sapped away your aggression and child-like resistance, sleep. Knock out! Leave a streak of drool that acts as a do not disturb sign on your lips (Who wakes a drooler, honestly?).

In the coming weeks I’ll put up another post on what you can do during the day to have blissful sleep at night. Till then sweet dreams. 

Bad Training at home also makes it easier for doubt to set in.

Bad Training at home leads to poor technique in class, which can get you hurt. 

Rest, be careful, and reach your goals.

Kickboxing is a great activity for the entire family

By TSMMA Princeton No Comments

These families have added Princeton kickboxing to their daily routines and are happier because of it.

When most people talk about doing a family activity, it’s usually referring to a trip to the park or a dinner. Some families will do bicycle rides together, or take an art class. There are many families out there doing a little more, to not only share with each other but to better themselves at the same time. Kickboxing is one of the greatest things a family can share, and we have quite a few groups who wouldn’t change their family activity for anything. Although our children and adult programs vary in the structure, all ages learn very authentic and similar kickboxing techniques. When it comes to kids, we want to build their self-discipline and their self-confidence so they achieve more at the things they do. Having strong focus not only improves schooling but will make things at home more disciplined, which will always make parents happier. When it comes to adults, the characteristic of discipline can still be molded but it’s not the main goal for them. Most adults come to us to get into better shape, create a healthier life style, and to relieve stress. All of these things make an individual a better and happier person, which in the end makes them able to give more to their family. When we asked some of our families what they enjoy about training together, the responses inspired us to share their stories with others.

The McCord’s are one of our families who adore training together.  It started out as only their children Gerard (6) and Rory (9) training. The kids needed an activity that they enjoyed and that added a little discipline in their lives. A year went by before parents Brian and Amy realized that Tiger Schulmann’s wasn’t only a Martial Arts school, but it’s a positive community for their family. At first the parents felt “too old” to try kickboxing, and there was no time in their day. But after 1 class, they were both hooked and we see at least one member of the family every night of the week.

McCord family after night of kickboxing

“We teach them integrity by showing them to do as we do. Even though we’re adults, we understand how hard that last round is and that it’s easy to want to give up. But then we hear Sensei’s words of encouragement and we fight through. We all do, and we finish strong together. It’s a rare sport that we can all do and really enjoy.”
– Brian says about his favorite part of training with his family

Being Ger and Rory are higher ranks and have some more experience, they really enjoy showing off their knowledge. They teach their parents the proper way to throw their techniques if they require extra help, and Brian and Amy don’t mind it at all. When the kids have a bad day, they are learning that training can be a release to make a bad day better. Amy particularly admires the positive influence training has on the kids, especially her daughter Rory.

“I really like that Tiger Schulmann’s has so many positive role models for the kids. I love that Rory sees women of all shapes, sizes, ages and ethnicities training hard and feeling about themselves. When I grew up women we supposed to be blonde and skinny. At Tiger Schulmann’s the kids learn about equality and that it’s okay for girls to compete with the boys, and that they can beat them.”

Another family, who have been a part of our Princeton family for almost 4 years now, is the McGann Family. This family of 5 spend majority of their week here at the school, and no one would have it any differently. Katie and Josh McGann knew it was time to find something for their kids to get involved in, and something they would actually enjoy. It was quickly obvious that training is what they needed in their lives. Danielle (9) and Kaleb (7) began training in 2011, with their Dad Josh starting over a year later. “I like to see their growth in their training, and I’m able to be part of it,” says Josh. Although Katie does not train with us, she spends a lot of her days in the lobby watching the kids train and occupying her youngest, Nathan (3). He patiently waits to be old enough to train with Sensei but he always will practice his techniques in the air while watching. “Before Tiger Schulmann’s, they did nothing together and everyone had their own thing. It’s nice to have something to share,” says Katie about what she loves about training for her family.  They even got Grandma Deb into training, and she loves having something fun to keep her in shape. Josh, Danielle and Kaleb all train in our Saturday Advanced class, which allows unique time for parents and kids to be on the mat together.

McGann family finds activity for all with kickboxing

Another duo gets to share that same experience in the Saturday Advances class, and that’s Drew and Eric Pianka. Dad Eric really enjoys the days he gets to be on the mat with his son, and train with him. They’ve even done up their home garage with a heavy bag and some mat, so they can share some extra time training together. When it comes down to what they enjoy most about training, Eric simply stated “We look forward to it.” It’s unique to share an activity that gets everyone into great shape, but feeling better about themselves as well. And of course, Drew loves getting the chance to spar with his dad!

We also have the Mah family, who hold training very high in their weekly routines. Steve and Cindy Mah, like all parents, want the very best when it comes to their children. When it came to finding their youngest, Kevin, the Mah’s didn’t settle for the first or second school. Some schools were restricted the amount of training a student could do, others just didn’t have the same philosophy that Steve wished for his son. Then they tried Tiger Schulmann’s and as Steve said himself “it instantly clicked”. He immediately felt comfortable with the other families in the school, and really trusted Sensei Billings with teaching his son kickboxing. Steve knew that with martial arts his kids would eventually be at a level that will involve contact with other students. Both parents admire that Sensei controls a full mat, and protects every student by teaching and enforcing safe training practices. Shortly after a school training day at the beach, their daughters Sarah and Emily began training with Kevin. All of the kids immediately loved the idea of training and they always pushed themselves to be the best. It was important to Steve and Cindy to get their girls involved in something that would teach them self defense.

“I grew up in a city, so I know to observe my surroundings. The kids are growing up in the suburbs, and don’t always understand when something isn’t right. I wanted them all to learn to be street smart, especially for the girls. I want them to have protection, and learning self defense does that for them”

Kickboxing offers self defense for Mah family

The Mah’s after a night of the kids training; Steve will return later to do classes of his own.

Steve began training shortly after his daughters, and hasn’t looked back ever since. He admits, “I used to push them hard after classes, saying what they could do better.” Now that Steve knows for himself how hard a class can be, he understands why the kids may have gotten a little tired towards the end of class. Either Cindy or Steve will watch every class that Sarah and Kevin have, and they both enjoy being a part of it. Steve likes to learn from Sensei as he watches his kid’s classes because it always him to guide them more, and help them get even better. Cindy really enjoys the conversations that are held at the end of class because she also learns from what Sensei says and helps apply that knowledge at home. The Mah’s are very impressed with how Sensei Billings runs the Princeton school, and they admire his discipline and passion for his students.

Being able to experience what a kickboxing class can do for you personally can be life changing. Sharing that experience with the ones you care about most is a feeling that words can’t describe. Watching each other progress and to learning from one another is what family is all about. Understanding exactly how hard someone has to push to get to the next level really brings families even closer. Be sure to get your family involved in something that’s fun and can bring a long-lasting bond. Get everyone to come try a class, and see why our families have made Tiger Schulmann’s Princeton apart of their family.

Kickboxing Classes Will Keep You In Shape All Year Round

By TSMMA Wayne No Comments

Get out of the habit of getting in shape for summer and forgetting about fitness in winter!

Just because bathing suit season has passed, don’t prepare to hibernate and put on your winter weight!!! When the first warm day of the next spring hits, everyone will be packing away their baggy sweatshirts in exchange for shorts and tank tops. And it’s in that moment that people realize they need to get back in shape! Most people will begrudgingly make their way to the gym and sign up for an annual membership that they will only use for a month, two at most. The gym only works for a small percentage of people.

The truth is that results don’t come easy at the gym.

Consistency is the key to achieving fitness results. When a work out is one dimensional, such as going to the gym, only to achieve these results it makes it difficult to stay consistent.

If you add in another dimension, having fun, by playing a sport it makes it easier to stick with because you enjoy it and look forward to it. But the results you get can be limited to the type of sport you play and often  sports are dependent upon external factors, such as weather and season. Here at Tiger Schulmann’s we provide you with a three dimensional work out. Not only will you get unbelievable results while having fun, but you will be learning a life skill. Self defense is a skill that will empower you on a daily basis, even after the workout is over. Kickboxing is always in season!

Beginner Kickboxing Classes Teach Authentic Kickboxing Techniques

You can go right ahead and schedule your first free kickboxing class or we will contact you to set up your first class.

Kids Martial Arts Builds CONFIDENCE which Prevents Bullying

By TSMMA Wayne No Comments

Training in a Kids Martial Arts program has more than just the obvious benefits, such as self-defense, self-discipline and physical fitness.  The need to stand up for yourself can not only be frightening to a young child, it can create intense stress and worry.  The best way to deal with bullies is to build confidence.  Training in Tiger Schulmann’s Kids Martial Arts helps kids become physically stronger, increase coordination, learn self defense techniques and how to apply them, essentially becoming more confident!

 Kids Martial Arts Training builds confidence, so a child will be less likely to even be on a BULLY’S Radar!

Kids Martial Arts Provides confidence

Confidence Comes From Discipline in Training

“Some people may think that bringing a child to a kids martial arts class is going to instill in them the desire to fight,” said Sensei Scott Zapfel, the head instructor of TS MMA in Wayne. “Nothing could be further from the truth.  Kids needs to feel safe, so being stronger, learning self defense, and discussing Bully-Proof techniques, provides that feeling of safety.”

Kids Martial Arts will provide Security, which Leads to a Feeling of Confidence

Kids Martial Arts will teach your child disicpline

Constant Practice Makes Kids Amazing at Their Techniques


The governor of New Jersey recently signed the toughest anti-bullying legislation in the country into law.  Schools will now be held directly responsible if reports of bullying, on or off school grounds are not attended to and taken seriously; in addition to mandating schools providing programs to help quell the epidemic of bullying.  Unfortunately however, no law will solve this problem.  To solve Bullying a child must build the confidence to stand up for themself.  Tiger Schulmann’s has been teaching a Bully-Safe program for thirty years now, instilling the confidence in kids not to be this victim.

Kids MArtial Arts also provides fitness

Flexibility is just one aspect of a child being physically fit

Does it work?  Well just ask the parents of the kids who have started Kids Martial Arts classes because of bullying issues.  All of them will give you a resounding YES!

Many parents bring their kids to Tiger Schulmann’s of Wayne  to help them build confidence or break out of their shyness.  A child with no confidence or who is painfully shy, unfortunately is potentially at a greater risk of being bullied.  Kids who appear weak are the favorite targets of bullies.  Appearance can be deceiving, however.  Strength and confidence may not change the meek appearance of a child, but confidence will always show through when confronted by a potential bully.  The list of kids from Tiger Schulmann’s Kids Martial Arts program who have overcome being bullied is constantly growing.  And very few have had to be physical.

Kids Martial Arts builds confidence

Kids Will Become More Confident When They Learn Self Defense


Everything taught at Tiger Schulmann’s is done so with safety as the main concern.  Putting kids in a one on one situation, such as actual and realistic kickboxing, allows them to not only get better at their martial arts techniques but learn a lot about character, heart, commitment, and toughness, and what parent doesn’t want to see their child improve in all of those qualities.


Tiger Schulmann’s Kids Martial Arts Program has open enrollment.  You can try out the program by enrolling for a free trial class.  Make your appointment by calling direct to the school at 973-694-3495, or other locations at 1-800-52-TIGER.

The Wayne School is conveniently located near Pequannock and is located at 1605 Route 23 South in the Brentwood Shopping Center, with Party City, Chuck E Cheese and located directly next door to Modell’s Sporting Goods.

Healthy, Happy Life Starts With Taking Care Of Yourself

By TSMMA Feasterville No Comments

Go to a Wedding or New Year’s party and the last thing you will  hear is a toast to health and happiness. What makes us healthy and happy though.

The last decade has been great for information on eating healthy. In fact it may be too great. It can be confusing to keep up with caveman, gluten free, which fats are good fats and how to cook them. Even more difficult, having the strength to follow through with what you know.

More important than what you eat to how healthy and happy you are is your state of mind. That is what has makes kickboxing such a mainstay for adults. When martial arts came to the United States it was taught to adults. Watch old Bruce Lee documentaries and you do not see kids. In an effort to make a living martial arts schools opened up hours to children. Over time the perception of martial arts changed. Now adults bring their children before themselves.

Healthy & Happy

Joshu Craig Alexander at Tiger Schulmann’s MMA in Feasterville makes sure those adults understand how it helps them too.

“A parent who trains is much more likely to keep their kids training,” the 2nd Degree Black Belt says. “It’s simple, they see the benefits for themselves and want that for their kids. Also they know how hard training is and have much more respect for what their kids are doing.”

It’s the strength of not only body, but mind that Alexander says is helps adults. Even in their thirties, forties and fifties adults build the discipline that helps them succeed in every day life.

Healthy & Happiness

His students don’t fight in the ring, but apply the same discipline to the daily fights their life brings.


“We are always working on our self-discipline,” says the successful instructor who doubles as a champion Mixed Martial Artist. “Every successful person has one trait in common. Self-Discipline. The ability to keep going when other people quit is what allows us to achieve any goal.”

Healthy More Mental Than Physical

Alexander loves to watch adults achieve goals in his Kickboxing classes. He talks about applying that mental strength to the other areas of life.

“Many adults don’t realize stress is the biggest cause of illness. By learning to be mentally strong and achieve at the various aspects of life, my students lower their stress levels. Also hitting a heavy bag for an hour while getting a great workout helps as well!”
