5 Fun Facts About Martial Arts

  1. Many of the martial arts we practice today originated in China, Japan and Korea. What most people don’t know is that the world has witnessed a variety of great fighters — from the Spartans to the Macedonians — who also trained in methodical fighting techniques and lived by a specific code of ethics.
  2. There are many more levels in martial arts training than just White Belt and Black Belt! Here they are, in order of beginner to expert: White, Yellow, Orange, Green, Blue, Purple, Brown, Red and Black.
  3. “Karate” is actually a combination of two words: kara (empty) and te (hand). The definition of karate, therefore, is self defense fighting with no weapons.
  4. Many people consider Bruce Lee to be the most influential martial artist in history. Why? Because he’s responsible for introducing Chinese martial arts to the entire world!

Safety Tips For Martial Arts Students

By Featured Stories No Comments

Just like any other sport or activity, martial arts requires the need to pay attention to safety. For both students and instructors, it is extremely important to be proactive about safety in any setting where martial arts is practiced, as it can be very easy to acquire an injury due to the types of techniques that are taught (kicking and punching, for example).

Since we at Tiger Schulmann’s are huge proponents of making sure that our schools are a safe environment for all, today we’re covering some safety basics that martial arts students should know:

Safety Tips For Martial Arts Students

Wear the proper clothing:? Any clothing, safety gear and equipment should always be a perfect fit. When clothes are baggy or equipment is too small, it can increase the risk of injury for both the student and their instructor. To learn more about the attire we require at Tiger Schulmann’s, give us a call prior to your first class.

Always warm up: ?Engaging in activity without stretching or performing the proper warmups is critical to prevent muscle injuries during class. Additionally, it’s also important to cool muscles down once activity is done for the day. Here at Tiger Schulmann’s we always make sure that our students’ bodies are prepared before we get into the more rigorous work, but to stay in tip­-top shape, we think it’s a good idea to stretch at home too!

Be honest: ?If at any point you suspect that you have an injury, be honest with your instructor and let them know exactly where it hurts. Putting off medical attention will only cause more damage and can put a halt on your martial arts training for longer than needed. Even if you’re simply feeling sore, your best bet is to let your instructor know so that they can take the proper steps to help you heal.

As one of the leading martial arts organizations, the team here at Tiger Schulmann’s goes above and beyond to guarantee the safety of our students in all of our classes.

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

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.

Kickboxing Classes at Tiger Schulmann’s

By Featured Stories, TSK No Comments

Though we offer various martial arts classes here at Tiger Schulmann’s, one that has grown to be our most popular across the board is kickboxing. This discipline, which first originated in America around the 1970s, blends the techniques of various martial arts styles. Specifically, it grabs much of its inspiration from Muay Thai.

Kickboxing classes at Tiger Schulmann's

As an organization that is built around offering top-­of-­the­-line martial arts classes, the team here at Tiger Schulmann’s has worked long and hard to develop kickboxing classes that provide an unmatched level of instruction. Available for both children and adults, our kickboxing program combines both self­-defense and fitness, giving our students the best of both worlds when they step into the gym. Not to mention, the techniques we focus on are incredible stress relievers, making our classes a place to relax and release any tension too.

Adults vs. Kids

Regardless of age, you’ll receive a total body workout by participating in a kickboxing class ­you can certainly expect to see increased stamina, strength and flexibility in yourself. Additionally, you’ll work on your balance and coordination, which aids in our efforts to make you feel much more empowered.

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.
