Tiger Schulmann’s Paramus School Holds: “Knock-Out Kids’ Cancer” Event
Tiger Schulmann’s Mixed Martial Arts, Benjamin’s Hope For The Future and Suburban Diner team up for the first annual “Knock Out Kids’ Cancers” charity event on November 10, 2013
On November 10, 2013, Tiger Schulmann’s Mixed Martial Arts Paramus will host “Knock Out Kids’ Cancers.” This two-part event teaches children and adults an introduction to martial arts training while simultaneously raising money for Benjamin’s Hope for the Future – a Pediatric Foundation in Love, Hope, Faith and Courage for Benjamin Venezia. The event consists of four back-to-back introductory classes open to the friends, family members and acquaintances of Tiger Schulmann’s students and of Ben Venezia, a 13-year old boy from Paramus who lost his life to Acute Myleoid Leukemia (AML) in the Spring of 2013.
To take an introductory martial arts class, the requested minimum donation is $20 per student. After the introductory class, attendees will schedule a Trial Program the following week which will include an orientation of the school, a trial class and free pair of training gloves. If they then wish to enroll as a regular student of Tiger Schulmann’s Paramus, $100 of their tuition will also go to Benjamin’s Hope for the Future.
All children, ages 5 and up, as well as older teens and adults are welcome to attend. After their prospective classes on Sunday, November 10, attendees of the event are encouraged to follow their class with lunch or dinner right next door at Paramus’s Suburban Diner where the two establishments have arranged a “Dine-and-Donate” in which 10% of all food and drinks purchased will be donated to Benjamin’s Hope for the Future as well.
“The mission of Benjamin’s Hope for the Future is to provide support and financial assistance to children and their families affected by cancer. They seek to advocate for children fighting cancer and assist with one on one fundraising for financial assistance to families in need. They also look to provide funding for cutting edge pediatric cancer research with a primary focus on AML research, which is overwhelmingly underfunded. Finally, they aim to recognize and offer scholarships to outstanding youth in the community excelling in academics and actively involved community service,” states Jackie Neilson, Manager of Tiger Schulmann’s Mixed Martial Arts in Paramus. “Over 13,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year. One out of five will lose their life, and three out of five will develop long term side effects. What’s worse is that pediatric cancer receives about 4% funding and no new pediatric drugs have been developed over the last 20 years. More funding and attention needs to be paid to this cause.”

For the first time in 2013, TSMMA Paramus will host “Knock Out Kids’ Cancer”, a series of classes taught by instructors Michael Murray and Jackie Neilson for kids and adults age 5 and up. The seminar teaches an introduction to self-defense, which also incorporates self-discipline training and exercise in a fun and safe atmosphere. Refreshments will be served throughout the classes. ALL Paramus students and parents should attend and spread the word far and wide. The event will be open to the public, but we request that attendees call to reserve a spot. Register with Jackie Neilson at 201-977-2066 or Paramus@tsk.com.
