Tiger Schulmann’s – Kids Martial Arts Commercial – The Playground

By Current News, featured news No Comments

This summer over 80 Tiger Schulmann’s students participated in the filming of a new kids martial arts commercial series. These new commercials will be airing regularly on TV for the 2015 back to school season.

The Best Martial Arts for Kids program around!

The main focus of these commercials is “Nothing Else is Tiger Schulmann’s”. It’s a pretty cool and relatable concept to convey the message that Tiger Schulmann’s simply is the best martial arts for kids program around… period! While other after school programs may benefit kids in certain areas, such as singing, dance, and piano, these programs don’t deliver the skills necessary for real world situations that kids face every day. Bullying is a real threat to every child. Standing up for themselves is the only thing to stop bullying dead in its tracks. To simply put it, there are plenty of after school activities for kids… but Nothing Else is Tiger Schulmann’s!

By Featured Stories No Comments

There’s no better feeling than being able to take care of yourself. Feeling safe and secure mentally, financially and physically is integral to one’s happiness.

But you may not be as physically prepared as you think. Although going to the gym certainly offers a slew of health benefits, it doesn’t necessarily teach you self-defense. Let’s take a look at why everyone should take a self-defense class:

To build confidence 

Understanding how to protect yourself and your loved ones from harm will help you feel more confident than ever before. In today’s increasingly aggressive world, knowing that you can protect yourself can help you feel more secure. Enrolling in a program at Tiger Schulmann’s can help you build that confidence.

To become more aware

No one plans to be bullied or attacked. Self-defense training can help you become more aware of what’s going on around you. It’s a skill that can benefit you in every aspect of your life.

Particularly for adults, we really hone in on the Muay Thai aspect of martial arts and demonstrate how to succeed in standing combat. For kids, we start off by getting them familiar with the concept of self­-discipline, then we detail real life situations where self-discipline comes into play. By integrating this type of education into our classes, our younger students learn how to maintain control and achieve success in various aspects of life from an early age.

Last, but definitely not least, the fighting techniques we emphasize in a kickboxing class are striking with hands, feet, elbows and knees. We also spend much of our time on blocking so that our students are prepared for anything that comes their way.

How Can Martial Arts Benefit Kids?

By Featured Stories No Comments

Kid's Martial ArtsWhile participating in a martial arts class can benefit you at any age, it can be extremely rewarding for those who start young. Particularly in the classes offered at Tiger Schulmann’s, children begin to develop a sense of self-discipline, confidence and respect for others. Not to mention, their mental and emotional health can greatly improve as they learn the skills needed to defend themselves.

But that certainly isn’t all martial arts can do for kids; here are a few more of the benefits that come from engaging in this activity early on:

Focus: As children continue to be inundated by the latest technology, it can be very easy for them to lose focus. However, a martial arts class can help bring them back and learn how to remain focused even when there is much else going on in their immediate environment.

Fitness: It is more important today than ever for children to be active as often as possible, and a martial arts class can help them do so. Between warm ups, cool downs and all the activity in between, martial arts students are constantly moving and working their muscles.

Feeling: An interesting benefit of this sport is that it teaches students how to really be in touch with their mind and body. Additionally, they will improve their awareness of simple things like breathing. Through this type of physical activity, students can become much more in tune with what they are feeling and what their bodies are telling them.

Different Types of Karate Instruction

By TSK No Comments

Karate is ultimately described as a standing style of martial arts that focuses on punching, kicking, blocks and takedowns. However, being that there are multiple techniques that come along with each aspect of this discipline, several different types of karate have developed as the sport has progressed. Today, we invite you to learn more about this particular activity by discovering the various types of karate instruction available at martial arts schools:

KarateChito-­ryu:? Chito-­ryu is a style of karate that was first developed in Japan in 1946. The techniques that accompany this approach focus on the lower body; specifically the fast rotation, tension and relaxation that it must exhibit.

Wado­-ryu:? Also developed in Japan, Wado-­ryu is a form of karate that blends grappling techniques from jiu jitsu and striking techniques from the art of Shotokan. It was created by Hironori Otsuka and officially entered the martial arts world prior to World War II.

Kyokushinkai:? Developed in 1964, this style is one of the most difficult. When competing in this discipline, fighters primarily win by knock downs or knockouts ­- their training certainly prepares them to deliver intense blows to their competitors!

For more information about the different types of karate, check out this article from Livestrong.

Here at Tiger Schulmann’s, all of our instructors are certified to teach our students various karate techniques. But what truly separates our organization from the rest is the fact that we place all of our focus on only the most effective and practical techniques from each of the different karate styles. Our team works diligently day in and day out to study and master the techniques that we feel deliver the best results in any situation where self-­defense is needed.

With programs available for both children and adults, our karate classes also include instruction on coordination and body awareness, which helps our students excel even more in self­-defense tactics. Not to mention, in our kid’s karate classes specifically, we also touch on flexibility and aerobic fitness. By participating in our programs, you’ll truly get the most comprehensive karate instruction there is.
