See what students at Tiger Schulmann’s Chelsea are saying

It’s a great school with a very personal approach to each student goals and objectives. Every master is extremely attentive to his students and cares a lot about the individual progress of everyone, and it truly feels that it’s not a formality for them. I would sincerely recommend everyone to try, especially during these times when the City became not so safe as it used to be.

Couldn’t be happier with the Chelsea school. The instructors are very experienced, professional, creative, attentive and caring. They instill motivation and provide support all at once. It’s like a second family to me. And they keep the school extremely clean at a time when it’s crucial.

Caroline F.

I have been training with Tiger Schumann’s MA for three years. I made a mistake stopping 7 years ago; but I’m so happy I came back and rejoined. My experience has always been great. You get taught by great individuals that mentor and elevate you in every training session.

Guido M.

Great space, great facility! I’ve been with the TSK team for about 3 years, and they’re always supportive and helping to push me to my goals. Also great staff in accommodating if you need to freeze your membership because you’re away and can’t come in. Highly recommend, you won’t be disappointed! ????

Best martial arts school I’ve ever been apart of. Great family environment, everyone encourages each other to best person they can be. Everything is immaculately organized, clean and safe. The instructors are state of the art, heartwarming, knowledgeable and accessible to all students at anytime. You wouldn’t be making a better choice then training at Tiger Schulmann’s Chelsea.

Allen C.

It’s always a pleasure to train with Lyman Good and the rest of the team. He’s very inspirational and an amazing athlete with a good training ethic. It always feels like a relief to attend every single class and to make progress by his side!
I highly recommend if you’re looking for a change in your life.

Lionel T.

I’ve been training with this organization for many years. Their instructors and curriculum are of a consistent high quality, and they promote a culture of healthy living and constant improvement in a welcoming, non-intimidating environment. The Chelsea school is great and both their in-person and remote classes are worthwhile and challenging. I strongly recommend them.

Matt U.

Sensei Good is one of the best people I’ve met in my martial arts journey.

Jenny H.

I’ve been training at Tiger for over two years. It’s honestly been one of the best choices I’ve ever made. I learned a lot about myself, got into even better shape than I was in before and I’ve gained a support system that genuinely cares for my progress and well being. The atmosphere is contagious- even taking online classes during the quarantine, I’m still motivated to get moving. I’d make the same choice over and over.

Rebecca M.

I am so happy that I found Tiger Schulmann’s Chelsea location. It has transformed my body and mind. All of the instructors are excellent and professional. It’s the first time I found a gym that I always look forward to going to. I have seen myself improve in strength, stamina and form and it has helped me in all aspects of my life. OSU!

Deborah K.

Trained there since the day it opened…. loving, committed trainers and beautiful family all around. Made me stronger in all kinds of ways.

Emily W.

Having been a Tiger Schulmann’s student for almost 10 years, I can firmly attest to the high level of MMA instruction that has benefited me in all aspects of my life.

Meet Our Head Instructor

Sensei Lyman Good

Lyman Good entered the world of martial arts to overcome anger and depression. “We lived in East Harlem where drugs, gangs, and violence were pretty common,” says Good. “My mom wanted me off the streets.” As an apprentice to Shihan Schulmann, Good began mentoring other young students and before long, he says, “they began to tell me how training had changed their lives. It gave me a sense of happiness that was new to me — the act of helping someone else.” Today, Good brings over 10 years of teaching experience to his leadership at Tiger Schulmann’s Chelsea where he strives to change lives for the better every day.
A celebrated professional fighter, Good competes in the UFC, is a former Bellator Welterweight Champion, CFFC Welterweight Champion, 2015 NJMMA Hall of Fame, and won 3 – 0 in Chuck Norris’ World Combat League. His 15 years of competitive experience have taught him that “complacency is the killer of progress,” he says. As a result, Good brings “an intensity and high expectations to all [his] classes but also a strong sense of camaraderie. . . I care wholeheartedly about every student that walks in through that door,” he says. “Our members will not only get an amazing workout, learn great technique, and build their minds, but I will make sure they’re safe and looked out for.”
