This gym is amazing. All of the instructors come with a ton of knowledge, patience and dedication. All classes are taught with specific goals in mind and the learning aspect is taken very seriously. It is clear that the instructors are happy when their students are happy. The schedule is also great with a lot of different classes to chose from. Wouldn’t chose any other place to train.

My entire family and I have been training with TSMMA since 2005. They have not only provided us with the physical and mental training that we were looking for but they have continued to go above and beyond with my son who is on the Autism Spectrum. They had him involved in his first COC (challenge of champions) with a special needs division. Every participant lit up with joy and (as did their parents). I absolutely highly recommend this place for anyone as well as your entire family!!

Shihan David Tirelli will help you push your limits and love every minute of it.

Conveniently located between the Garden State Parkway and Route 80, Tiger Schulmann’s flagship Elmwood Park location combines real self-defense with full-body fitness for the toughest workout you’ll ever love. Our high-intensity kickboxing classes burn up to a thousand calories while teaching a critical life skill that builds lasting confidence and peace of mind.
The difference is our certified instructors. Head Shihan David Tirelli brings nearly three decades of teaching experience to his Elmwood Park kickboxing classes, helping members get results through cardio, strength-training, flexibility, and authentic martial arts techniques. “Gyms tend to be boring,” says Tirelli, “but our motivated instructors make classes go by fast so you’re never bored. Members love the workout, so they stick with it, train harder, and see results. We’re by their side every step of the way.”

THE WORKOUT

Push Your Limits
and Love Every Minute

Cardio, strength, flexibility, and key recovery time come together in a balanced, high-energy workout.

LEARN REAL SELF-DEFENSE

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

  • 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

Meet Our Head Instructor

Shihan David Tirelli

New Jersey Hall of Fame Pioneer Fighter, David Tirelli, brings nearly three decades of teaching experience to his role as Head Instructor at our Elmwood Park school. As the owner of this flagship gym, Tirelli takes pride in offering members a quality of instruction they’ll find nowhere else. “As one of Tiger Schulmann’s flagship headquarters, we have amazing instructors that attract members from all walks of life, including top fighters,” says Tirelli. “Gyms tend to be boring and dull. Our motivated instructors are excited to help you reach your goals. Classes pass by fast, so you’re never bored.”
Tirelli’s Elmwood Park school offers an extensive schedule of martial arts classes for kids and adults of all ages and abilities. “For my young students,” he says, “I focus on building their mental and physical spirit. We help them practice self-discipline by working towards and achieving goals, and develop the tools to stand up to bullies.” Tirelli’s adult kickboxing classes offer members a break from the stresses of the day. “I’m inspired watching our members get into great shape and let go of anxiety. They lead busy lives, but here we help everyone relax and enjoy themselves.”
