I absolutely love this school! My son looks forward to going to each class. The owner/instructor is AWESOME! He makes each class fun, interesting and challenging. I love that my son is learning respect/discipline in a great environment. I truly can not recommend this school enough! Looking forward to my kids future at this school!

Really an incredible school for my child. Waiting for my younger one to be old enough to join so he can start training here. The head instructor staff is one of the best in NY/NJ, not just within the Tiger Shulmanm community, but throughout the martial arts community. Great place for adult training as well to get in shape!

Head Instructor Julianno Varricchio will help you achieve life-changing results, inside and out.

Located in Freehold, New Jersey, Tiger Schulmann’s is a mix of fitness, fun, and real self-defense technique. Every class is a combination of strength training, cardio, and flexibility, Tiger Schulmann’s Freehold’s kickboxing classes are not your typical workout. 

“Our classes benefit your mind and your body,” says Sensei  Varricchio. While life can prove to be very stressful, Tiger Schulmann’s classes provide a window of opportunity for adults to focus on themselves and their goals. During class, you are solely focused on what you are doing and learning at the moment, the outside world slips away during that time.  

“As adults, we can all relate to that feeling of waking up and not wanting to work out that day. But, we explain to our adult students that if you really want to reach your goals, start by just showing up… that’s always the hardest part. Let’s get through this together.” says Head Instructor. “I’ll show you exactly what it is that helps me and it will likely help you.”  

That’s the Tiger Schulmann’s difference. Our Freehold school offers more than a typical workout.  

  • Full Body Fitness
  • Weight loss 
  • Peace of mind
  • Community
  • Empowerment

“I want to lead by example. No matter how good I am doing, I want my students to do even better. Their success is my reward.”

It’s More Than a Workout,

  • 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

Head Instructor Julianno Varricchio

“Seeing adults come in and tell me that training is their favorite part of the day is a reminder to me why I love what I do so much.”

Sensei Varricchio’s passion is teaching Martial Arts. “I knew after my first class, I wanted to be an instructor. I love seeing the positive changes people achieve through training” says Varricchio. “I want to give others all the benefits martial arts gave me.” One of the keys to teaching new students of any age is making them feel comfortable. Doing that with adults often requires an experienced instructor. 

The main thing that separates Tiger Schulmann’s Freehold from other non-Tiger Schulmann’s schools is the level of instruction. Head Instructor Sensei Varricchio has been teaching for more than 15 years and like all Tiger Shculmann’s instructors was handpicked to become an instructor. “You don’t just take a weekend seminar and then work at our school,” says Varricchio. “to teach at Tiger Schulmann’s you need to be both a great Martial Artist and an excellent communicator. Our classes will empower you, not just give you a good workout.”

When Sensei Varricchio is not teaching, he is competing. He is currently undefeated in Kickboxing and Jiu Jitsu amateur competitions. Tiger Schulmann’s Freehold provides training in authentic kickboxing,  jiu-jitsu, anti-bullying, and self-defense.
