My experience at TSMMA in North Plainfield has been truly positive. Teachers / Sensei are extremely knowledgeable, supportive and professional. The lesson plans are well thought out but extremely challenging in a good way. The school has up-to-date training gear and the training areas are pristine.

Tiger Schulmann’s isn’t just martial arts classes. It is a community of people who want to help you succeed. You become part of their family. The kid’s program is amazing and teaches your child not only how to stand up for themselves but also how to be respectful and disciplined. That respect and discipline isn’t only in class but in every aspect of their lives at home and school. The adult classes are amazing as well.

EXCELLENT program for the kids and for my husband and I! We enrolled our daughters to increase their self-esteem and help learn self-defense. We got SO much more!! They are reinforcing listening to their parents, paying attention in school/life, making friends and now my husband & I enrolled for our health. I would recommend this program and these owners to everyone! It is a wonderful team of caring, talented people here.

Senseis Paul Querido & Munah Holland will help you push your limits and love every minute of it.

Conveniently located off Route 22, Tiger Schulmann’s North Plainfield gym combines full-body fitness with real self-defense for the toughest workout you’ll ever love. Our high-intensity interval workouts burn up to a thousand calories a class while teaching an essential life skill that builds confidence and security far outside the gym.
“We don’t follow fad workouts,” says Sensei Paul Querido. “We have a proven curriculum developed over three decades that’s helped thousands of people.” That’s the Tiger Schulmann difference. Led by Querido and his wife, Sensei Munah Holland, our North Plainfield kickboxing classes blend cardio, strength-training, flexibility, and authentic martial arts techniques to help students find:
Fitness
Weight loss
Peace of mind
Community
Empowerment
Unlike most gyms, you’re not in it alone. “I love giving members the physical outlet they need to reduce stress and get in shape,” says Holland. “I lost 50 pounds in my first year with Tiger Schulmann’s and to help our members do the same thing is remarkable.” Querido agrees, “Our members are so focused on their family and their careers, they often don’t make time for themselves. We help them care for themselves, physically and mentally, so that they can take better care of the people in their lives.”

THE WORKOUT

Push Your Limits
and Love Every Minute

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

Senseis Paul Querido

Senseis. Athletes. Business owners. Community builders. Husband and wife. Munah Holland and Paul Querido bring a range of skills and a singular dedication to their leadership at Tiger Schulmann’s North Plainfield. “I started my martial arts journey to lose weight and learn self-defense, “says Holland, “but I fell in love with the training and learning. I lost 50 pounds in my first year and now I love helping others reduce stress, get in shape, and achieve fuller, happier lives.”

Senseis Munah Holland

Together, Holland and Querido bring over two decades of teaching experience to their North Plainfield gym. “I love seeing the transformation in our kids,” says Querido. “Time and time again we see students come in shy and unable to make eye contact. And through training they evolve before our eyes into confident, smiling, happy kids. It’s so rewarding.” “We give our students consistency,” explains Holland. “Leadership, trust, safety, calmness all comes from consistency.”
