Sensei and Joshu are very professional. The facility is very clean and both go above and beyond to meet the needs of each individual student. We would recommend Tiger Schulmann of Smithtown to everyone.. Melissa Cebrian

This place is great! My son is learning so much from attending. Sensei Leonelli, and the rest of the staff (Dillon, Alex, and Joe just to name a few) are great with the kids. So patient and caring. They also really take an interest in their adult students, to make sure that everyone who trains with them stays on track to obtain their goals.

glad to have joined this family-oriented school. My daughter and I appreciate the family feel. Should have listened to Sempei Doug a long time ago. Glad to call the school a second home.

They have so much love and positivity filling up this amazing environment. Everyone who works here, attends here, it’s like a big family, a big support system. Sensei and Sempai are both the best of the best. I wouldn’t go anywhere else, and I would recommend everyone bring themselves, and their families here.

Sensei J. Leonelli will help you push your limits and love every minute of it.

Welcome to the toughest workout you’ll ever love. In Smithtown, our high-intensity kickboxing workouts pair strength training, cardio, flexibility, and authentic martial arts to help members burn up to 1,000 calories a class.
Our certified instructors are the difference. Sensei James Leonelli brings two decades of teaching expertise to help members achieve their fitness and nutritional goals quickly and safely. “Students learn authentic kickboxing and proven self-defense skills all in a fun, positive atmosphere that makes it easy to stay consistently motivated,” says Leonelli.
And unlike most gyms, you’re not in it alone. “We look after one another like family to make sure you achieve success, physically and mentally.”

Meet Our Head Instructor

Sensei J. Leonelli

Sensei James Leonelli began his Tiger Schulmann’s training at 13. Three years later, he began mentoring young students. “I saw the impact I was having,” he says, “and it was awesome to do for others what my instructors had done for me.” Today, he brings nearly two decades of martial arts teaching experience to his role as Tiger Schulmann Smithtown’s Owner and Head Instructor.
Leonelli helps kids Find Their Tiger through hard work, dedication, and a no-quit spirit. “We see children like Lily, small and quiet in stature, become a stronger, more confident version of herself. And teens like Shivansh evolve into strong, outspoken competitors. Doug, one of our adult kickboxing students is in the best shape of his life, mentally and physically, at age 50. Seeing the results of my students’ hard work motivates me to help even more people on their journey.”
