OSU…I am grateful for the Zoom classes. I continue to fine-tune my skills as well as learn new techniques. I get feedback throughout each session as I would have had I been taking a class in person. The high level of excellence of the instructors has never wavered.

Tiger Schulmann Syosset is so awesome! They’re always professional and have the best teachers that care very much about all their students! During this COVID19 pandemic, they were able to adapt to a remote learning environment quickly and efficiently. My husband and 9-year-old daughter have both excelled at their MMA techniques despite the challenges that this pandemic has caused.
I love this place.

Meet Our Head Instructors

Sensei Nissim Levy

Nissim Levy set off on his martial arts journey at 22 and immediately knew he’d found his career path. Today he brings over 25 years of teaching experience to his role as Owner and Head Instructor of Tiger Schulmann’s Bay Ridge in Brooklyn, NY.
“We don’t just teach martial arts,” he says, “we change lives. Shy, timid kids grow bold and confident. Children who struggle with bullying learn to stand up for themselves. My partner here in Bay Ridge, Joshu Arce, came to us as a chunky kid. He worked his butt off and at 18 became a professional fighter. We bring 110% every day to make transformation like that possible.”

Shihan Nicholas Gravina

Nicholas Gravina began his martial arts training as a teen. “I was bullied as a kid because I was small and heavy,” he says. “It was through training at Tiger Schulmann’s that I built up the confidence to stand up for myself. And did I ever.” Today, Shihan Gravina brings over three decades of teaching expertise to his role as Owner and Head Instructor of Tiger Schulmann’s Syosset studio.
A coach and mentor to both kids and adults, Gravina is driven to help members “leave class feeling better than when they came in.” “As an instructor,” he explains, “your students really look up to you. That is powerful and something you have to earn and respect. My team and I work hard to lead by example, carrying ourselves with confidence and respect, and embodying the non-quitting spirit we teach every day.”
