We’ve been engaged for 15 years. My household members have gained self-defense skills & improved stamina, physical strength, and health. We have also connected to a great community.

TS Bayside is wonderful. The instructors are knowledgeable and committed. Both my 7-year-old son and I attend and both of us have benefited tremendously!

Tiger Schulmann’s in Bayside is amazing- my whole family has been training at this school for almost 15 years. We love the TSK community. Shihan, Sensei, and Joshu, the expert fighters/instructors, are truly dedicated, professional and kind. They are fabulous role models for all of us, especially the kids. The environment is friendly, encouraging, supportive and always clean. The workout is unparalleled and to top it off, you are learning a martial art. Only positive things to say about TSK Bayside.

Excellent martial arts school! Taught me self-defense techniques and discipline while having a great fun cardio workout! Left all my stress and tension from the day on the mat! Special thanks to Sensei Arce and Joshu Jon! Great instructors and amazing personalities!!

Rania G.

You start off trying to get in shape and before you realize you’ve not only succeeded in getting in shape but you are learning different martial arts styles as well as making friendships that last beyond the mat. It is a wonderful experience to do things that you’ve never believed you can do and still learn how to maintain a healthy lifestyle and do what you love to do to. I’ve learned so much and I can never wait for my next class to start.

David C.

I cannot say enough about TSMA Bayside. Our daughters have been training here since January and love it! They always look forward to the days they have class. They are learning discipline, responsibility, gaining self-confidence and self-defense. Shihan, Sensei, Sempai, and Mikey make TSMA our second family. The moment you walk through the door, you feel at home.

Colleen H.

In Tiger Schulmann’s Bayside, aside from the excellent kickboxing and grappling training you get, they also encourage and instill the practice of self control and self discipline. I’ve been training here for 9 years and all those years I’ve learned to balance proper diet and exercise in order to live a healthy lifestyle. They not only emphasize exercise but also the importance of incorporating proper nutrition in daily life.

Vic D.

Hey, I’m a student and I actually thought I wasn’t going to fit in or that kids will laugh at me because of my size but the first time I went there I made myself friends and the teachers are nice, I love the students and the teacher, they even gave me a nice nickname, “Rumble”, I really suggest people to go there with your family and friends, very nice, you’ll even feel like your home!!!!!. Love it!!!!!

Christian T.

Been coming for just shy of 5 years. Just turned 67. It is without a doubt the best workout ever. Shihan, Sensei Arce, and the other teachers are all great. Aside from being in the best shape in years, they have all helped elevate my self esteem and confidence to new heights. Thanks Tiger Schulmann.

Julio Arce will help you push your limits and love every minute of it.

Get in the best shape of your life. In Bayside, our high-intensity interval kickboxing workouts combine full-body fitness with authentic martial arts techniques to help you torch up to 1,000 calories a class.
Our instructors are the difference. Shihan Gotthoffer and Sensei Arce bring a collective 50 years of teaching experience and unparalleled mastery to help members reach their fitness goals while learning real self-defense. “At a gym, you work out,” Shihan Gotthoffer explains. “But here, you develop an essential life skill — self-defense — that builds complete mental and physical fitness. Members stay motivated because they’re constantly challenged by new skills that help them protect the ones they love.”

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

Meet Our Head Instructor

Julio Arce

Julio Arce was first drawn to karate as a bullied and overweight 12-year-old. It wasn’t long before he experienced a physical and mental transformation under the mentorship of Bayside’s Shihan Gotthoffer. Arce earned his black belt and made it his goal to share the knowledge he’d learned on his journey to help others overcome their own obstacles.
As a professional fighter, Arce is an MMA Ring of Combat Bantamweight and Featherweight Champion, the 2011 Golden Gloves Boxing Champion, and a UFC Featherweight Contender. But in school, he uses his years of teaching experience to “bring out the potential in students that they might not see in themselves.” He helps adults reach peak fitness through kickboxing classes led in a high-energy, feel-good group setting. “At Tiger Schulmann’s Bayside, you will always have someone motivating you and assisting you with your goals,” he says. He also teaches karate classes for kids, where he applies martial arts basics to instill children with lifelong confidence and self-discipline.
