See what students at Tiger Schulmann’s Stamford are saying

I have been with Tiger Schulmann’s Stamford for about a year now. Absolutely love the classes. Definitely get a great workout for what I pay. Worth it. Great staff. Always super friendly. Training via zoom due to the pandemic has still been a great experience. Same great workout.

I have trained at multiple Tiger Schulmann locations in NY, NJ, LI, and CT for over 7 years. The passion of the instructors radiates into each student at every class. The teaching style begins very regimented, but as your skill grows, becomes an open dialog that embraces questioning and exploration. The discipline to constantly push limits seeps into your everyday life. I know that I am a better person when I train, and I enjoy training here.

Christopher B.

I love the kickboxing classes. The instructors are fantastic and the class times are really convenient to take after work. I think the full body workout is great.

Antonia G.

I only attended two classes yet but I absolutely love it. The instructors are very nice and they’ll help you with anything. So even if you’re a beginner like me, go for it! You’ll love it!!

Angela B.

One class in, but I was really impressed. Sensei Demetrius was really friendly and made me feel comfortable as a beginner. Great workout and good people. Positive experience so far.

Drew B.

The expert training you receive here is amazing!! From the adult to the kid’s classes all the way to PreK program the instruction is phenomenal. Sensei Nick, Joshu Music are amazing teachers. Extremely patient with the kids and know how to get to them. With the adults, they know how to push you to a level you thought didn’t exist. With the PreK, they are amazing how they teach the little ones self-control, balance and amazing motor skills.

Sensei Nick Demetrius will help you push your limits and love every minute of it.

Centrally located between downtown and North Stamford, Tiger Schulmann’s kickboxing gym pairs fitness, fun, and real self-defense techniques for the toughest workout you’ll ever love. Burn up to 1,000 calories a class and leave no muscle un-toned — all while building strength and confidence that extends far beyond the studio.
Tiger Schulmann’s kickboxing is not your typical workout. “Not only do you get an amazing total body workout,” says Stamford Sensei Nick Demetrius, “but you learn an essential life skill, self-defense, at the same time! We teach street-wise safety with authentic martial arts techniques.”
That’s the Tiger Schulmann difference. Our Stamford kickboxing studio offers a full-body workout that builds:
Fitness
Weight loss
Peace of mind
Community
Empowerment
Unlike most gyms, you’re not in it alone. “I’m inspired every day to see my second family—my students,” says Sensei Demetrius. “We’re all here for each other.” That means personalized guidance, expert coaching, and continuous motivation to help you reach your goals.

Meet Our Head Instructor

Sensei Nick Demetrius

Sensei Nick Demetrius brings more than two decades of martial arts teaching experience to his role as head instructor at Tiger Schulmann’s. He goes above and beyond to make our Stamford location a supportive space where lifelong friendships can be made. “I’m inspired every day to see my second family – my students,” says Nick. In the Stamford school, he says, “we’re all here for each other.” For members – both adults and kids – that means personalized guidance and motivation to get you where you want to be.
An experienced athlete and fighter, Sensei Demetrius earned Connecticut’s #1 rank in forms and fighting three years in a row and repeatedly placed in the top 5 in the US for his age and weight class. But through it all, his number one goal was to be a Sensei. “When I was young, my instructor, Shihan Pete Tirelli Sr., was my super hero.” Today, he says, “I love teaching kids because I know the martial arts skills they’re learning will make them more confident in all aspects of their lives – like it did for me!”
For adults, Demetrius creates “a mental vacation” from the distraction and stresses of the workday. “For the time members train with me,” he says “nothing else matters.”
