See what students at Tiger Schulmann’s Paramus are saying

I have been training at Tiger Schulmann’s for a few years prior to giving birth to my first child. When I started training, I was wearing a size 8 clothes. After just a few months I was down to size 6, and then size 4. After my daughter was born, I have moved from Brooklyn, NY to NJ and never went back to training. Just recently, I started training again and finally lost all of the baby weight that I carried for over 5 years. I feel great, look great and have tons of energy. GYM is boring to me, but training at TSMMA Paramus is lots of fun. Instructors are awesome! They will motivate you and help you get the most out of the workout. Even my daughter trains at TSMMA Paramus and she loves it!

What started as a personal journey to improving my own health has now become a family tradition. Both my 9-year-old son and my husband are now active students at the TSMMA Paramus school. The training is top-notch and the instructors are very professional and dedicated. You can tell this is not just a job to them, but rather a way of life. They instill a disciplined and “non quitting” mindset to all students. For someone like me, with no former athletic training, the beginner classes have been beneficial at some many levels. I highly recommend the TSMMA team for all your fitness needs.

From the first minute, this place has a very welcoming and friendly atmosphere compared to the others that I visited for my son’s training. My son (and now I) feels like a part of a family every time he goes to class. As my son advances the lessons are getting more fun for him (going from kickboxing to jujitsu). Ignore the negative review below. They are all very upfront and clear about signing a 1-year contract (like all other martial arts places). One thing that the senseis instill in the children a “non quitting spirit” which is lacking in today’s kids. The discipline that my son is learning is invaluable and he is not it getting anywhere else besides home. I highly recommend Tiger Shulmann’s to all who are interested.

Sensei Shawn Rapoport will help you push your limits and love every minute of it.

This is not your typical workout. Our Paramus kickboxing classes pair balanced, full-body fitness with streetwise self-defense techniques for the toughest workout you’ll ever love. Members burn up to 1,000 calories a class, all while building confidence, community, and learning a critical life skill—self-defense.
The Tiger Schulmann difference? Our certified instructors. Owner and Head Sensei Shawn Rapoport brings over two decades of teaching experience to help members achieve their health and fitness goals. And unlike most gyms, you’re not in it alone. “Our school is diverse,” says Rapoport, “but we’re one big family. This art form takes time and repetition to learn so you don’t have to be perfect in a day. We reach our goals together, one day at a time.”

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

TOP LEVEL INSTRUCTION

Our Instructors Are the Difference

Athletes. Fighters. Trainers. Mentors. We’re a diverse team bound by the transformative experience of Finding Your Tiger.
Our instructors inspire positive change inside and out. They are with you to celebrate your victories, grow your confidence, and make your training more fun than you’ve ever imagined.

Meet Our Head Instructor

Sensei Shawn Rapoport

Owner and Head Instructor, Sensei Shawn Rapoport began his journey in martial arts at age 10. What started as a quest to learn self-defense and build confidence quickly turned into a life-changing career. Today, he brings nearly three decades of teaching experience and leadership to his role at Tiger Schulmann’s Ramsey and Paramus locations. During that time, he competed in Golden Glove boxing, kickboxing, and MMA, but he remains singularly focused on his students. “I love to see my young students grow in confidence, develop great technique, and watch my teens grow into powerful, fearless adults,” he says.
Rapoport’s high-energy adult kickboxing classes help members “see results, get in great shape, lose weight, and develop real techniques.” Recently, he says, “I helped a woman lose over 100 pounds. It saved her life.” But the Tiger Schulmann difference, he says, goes beyond fitness and weight loss. “We teach authentic self-defense and kickboxing techniques that really work on the street.” That builds a sense of security, confidence, and peace-of-mind, Rapoport says, that students won’t find anywhere else.
