I’ve been training at this school for several years now and it’s great! The sensei’s and instructors are inspiring and helpful. They are always there to push you to be and do your best. I have made some great friends here and it is always a blast and one of the best parts of my week walking on to that mat! It’s like a second family. If tiger Schumann’s is something you were considering trying out, I say go for it! Signing up was one of my best decisions.

I had trained here once, as I usually attend another tiger Schulmann’s location. They are very welcoming and have an array of talented students that help others who may be struggling with a technique. Parking is readily available in a parking lot so that you don’t have to worry about being ticketed while you are there. Best of all is that there are two dedicated black belts teaching here. I recommend this location to those who live near.

The number of times I’ve been to TSMA Glendale, I’ve been welcomed with open arms. They show interest in all of your health goals, additionally, they keep you motivated to do more. it’s nothing like a regular gym, everyone treats you like their own. I admire the energy from the staff as well as the students. I would definitely recommend this location to everyone.

Excellent, top-tier instruction from 2 multi-stripe black-belt sensei and an incredible, energetic crop of up-and-coming instructors make this school one of the best. You can expect a large mat, well-maintained equipment, and two large locker rooms for men and women. It’s also clean enough to eat off of the floor. 10/10

Sensei Iavarone is the heart of the school. He and his team have grown the school and are always willing to teach students (of all ages) newer skills. Sensei Lopez is a great addition, showing leadership, instilling confidence, and, for good measure, keeping things light enough to be fun but serious enough to be worthwhile! It warms my heart to see families bring their kids to learn self-defense and confidence, which they can apply anywhere else.

Great place for kids and adults. My son has been training in Glendale for 3 yrs now, my husband joined last year and we just signed up our daughter. Friendly and supportive environment.
Thank you sensei Ivarone, Sensei Lopez, Mike, Cesar, and all the staff for all you do!

Magdalena R.

Great cardio kickboxing workout program. Sensei Chris will point out what techniques need work. He can definitely motivate you when you’re feeling tired. Try one class and you will find yourself wanting more.

Meet Our Head Instructor

Sensei Christopher Iavarone

Sensei Christopher Iavarone, Head Instructor at our Glendale location, was “practically raised on the mat” and always knew he was destined to become a Tiger Schulmann’s instructor. “As a kid, Tiger Schulmann’s became the place I went to feel good about myself and all the physical activity made it easy to lose the excess weight,” he says. “Reaching my first black belt in record time (less than two years) gave me the confidence I lacked and the skills to defend myself. At an early age I learned the power of self discipline and what can be achieved.” Today, he brings over 25 years of teaching experience to help students of all ages realize their full potential.
Iavarone takes great pride in creating a bright, accessible, family-friendly atmosphere where students can get in the best shape of their lives supported by motivational instructors. He ensures that each student receives tailored training from master instructors, explaining that, when it comes to fitness, there is simply “no match for superior instruction, cleanliness and friendliness.” A passionate cook and health advocate, Iavarone also offers nutritional guidance and healthy recipes in his video series, Cooking with Sensei.
Sensei Iavone’s total-body adult kickboxing classes offer endless benefits, including a newly toned, flexible physique and self-defense skills that can be used in everyday life. But, he says, it is the self-discipline instilled by the practice that truly transforms all areas of his students’ lives.
