Sensei Villafane and staff are great instructors and motivators. At Bethlehem TSMA you will have a good and fun workout while keeping all of their students safety in mind. I would recommend this family-friendly and clean location that has classes for both children and adults.

Aida R.

Was hesitant about signing up because I’ve done the whole gym membership thing and always had trouble motivating myself to actually go. Signed up for kickboxing and I couldn’t be happier. I have no issues with motivation. The classes are phenomenal, the instructors and fellow members are always there for you and will push and motivate you, they become your fitness family. The constant learning and want to improve keep me interested and excited for every class. 10/10 would recommend to anyone.

Dominik P.

I recently joined TS and am very excited. If you are looking for a better and more effective way to work out than I encourage you to check it out. I have read reviews that this school is “too expensive”. As far as that issue is concerned consider this, it is far less of an expense now to get yourself in good health than it will be paying for medications and weight loss surgery you may need in the future if you don’t make a change. Do yourself a favor and give TS a shot.

Sensei Robert Villafane will help you push your limits and love every minute of it.

The premier martial arts gym in the Lehigh Valley, Tiger Schulmann’s kickboxing pairs fitness, fun, and real self-defense techniques for the toughest workout you’ll ever love. Cardio, strength training, and flexibility all come together in high-energy workouts that build strength and confidence in and out of the studio.
Tiger Schulmann’s kickboxing is not your typical workout. We pair high-intensity interval training with real self-defense skills to help you burn up to 1,000 calories a class while leaving no muscle un-toned. “We make sure you get results—fast—with a 3-dimensional workout,” says Bethlehem’s Head Sensei, Robert Villafane. “You work out your entire body. You build a skill. And you learn how to defend yourself.”
That’s the Tiger Schulmann difference. We call it Finding Your Tiger, and you’ll feel it inside and out through:

Fitness
Weight loss
Peace of mind
Community
Empowerment
And unlike most gyms, you’re not in it alone. Our instructors and members are one big fit family, says Sensei Villafane. “We’re here to help you stay motivated so you see results and also learn to defend yourself.”

THE WORKOUT

Push Your Limits
and Love Every Minute

Cardio, strength, flexibility, and key recovery time come together in a balanced, high-energy workout.
  • Warm Up: Prepare the body to work hard, safely
  • Bag Training: Cardio and full-body strength-training in one powerful package
  • Bodyweight Strength Training: Build core strength and stability without stressing the joints or limiting mobility
  • Stretching and Flexibility: Our restorative cool-down increases flexibility and prevents injury
Let’s go! You can do this!

LEARN REAL SELF-DEFENSE

It’s More Than a Workout,
It’s Peace of Mind

  • Street-Smart Safety: The best defense is knowing how to avoid danger, and knowing what to do when you can’t
  • A Proven Tradition: We’re 35+ years strong and real-world tested to keep you safe
  • Defense for All Levels: We’ll get you started and keep you advancing with kickboxing, close-range defense and jiu-jitsu tailored to your level
  • Confidence that Counts: Leave the class with a power and ease that makes you a far less likely target

Meet Our Head Instructor

Sensei Robert Villafane

Growing up in the Bronx, Sensei Villafane was often bullied and intimidated. That’s how, at age 16, he found himself on the martial arts path he remains on today. Through his training, he was able to overcome aggressors and shift his mindset. The martial arts “taught me to be calm in very difficult situations,” he says, “and gave me the confidence to train with the biggest guy in the room.”
When he was 29 years old, Sensei Villafane was approached by Tiger Schulmann himself to represent the organization in jiu-jitsu tournaments. He went on to compete for seven years, and would ultimately coach other Tiger Schulmann pro fighters. “Through Tiger Schulmann’s training I’ve learned to be a great instructor and coach,” he explained,” but also to be a calm, focused, and attentive husband and father to my wife and daughter.”
Today, he passes on his passion for martial arts to his students at our Bethlehem location. There he gives kids and teens the tools to build confidence and leads motivating adult kickboxing classes that help members transform body and mind through real self-defense techniques.
