Karate For Modern Era On Display At MMA School

By TSMMA Abington No Comments

For years parents turned to karate to help build confidence in their children. Building Self-Confidence takes two things, achievement and a sense of security. Achievement helps build confidence. Self-defense provides that sense of security.

Karate was once considered the best way to defend yourself. In the last two decades that has been proven incorrect.

“The fact is modern day bullying incidents look nothing like what Karate teaches,” says Sensei James Garzillo of Tiger Schulmann’s in Abington. “Through our thirty year history, we’ve learned that students need a more well rounded self-defense system.”

Young students learn modern self-defense techniques.

Young students learn modern techniques far more effective than karate to confront bullying.


Tiger Schulmann’s teaches Beginner students 41 techniques proven to work in a modern day bullying situation. The techniques are not specific to karate, but draw from various martial arts.

“Those techniques were chosen because they are safe to practice, easy to learn, and do not require strength to be effective,” he says. “And they provide self-defense in every situation.”

Sensei Garzillo takes the time to teach his students how to identify and handle different bullying situations.

Garzillo was an expert in Karate getting all the way to 2nd Degree Black Belt. That did not stop him from making the transition to a more effective self-defense style.

MMA Stops Bullying Better Than Karate

“I simply could not keep telling parents I was providing the best self-defense training if I knew I was only teaching the techniques of Karate. As a martial artist it is our duty to seek out the very best for ourselves and our students. The bottom line is if you are still teaching Karate you cannot claim it is truly relevant for self-defense.”

Traditional Karate belt system still helps MMA students see build confidence through achievement.

Kickboxing With A Willow Grove Professional

By TSMMA Abington No Comments

James Garzillo has been an institution in teaching kickboxing in Willow Grove. He was hand picked by Tiger Schulmann to become the head instructor at TSMMA Willow Grove in 2003. It’s nearing the 11 year mark and the accolades the 33 year old has amassed are impressive.

When he originally came to Willow Grove the school struggled to have 100 students. For more than a decade Garzillo has trained more than 200 people every single month. Now he is nearing 300 hundred active students.

Dozens of adults come to Garzillo's Kickboxing classes every night for the motivating instruction and fun workout.

He has managed to develop such a dedicated student base by pouring his heart and soul into the school. He is there six days a week teaching six classes a day with the same passion he displayed as a fresh faced 22 year old.

What is even more impressive are his accomplishments outside of his Willow Grove school. Garzillo began his competitive career shortly before taking over as instructor at Willow Grove.

That career has seen him amass double digit victories against only one loss in Kickboxing and MMA. You simply will not find a more accomplished Kickboxing instructor anywhere in the area.

Sensei Garzillo is known for his knockout power in the ring, and his quiet persona outside of it!

His school moved less than a mile up 911  a couple years ago and now is undergoing a beautiful renovation to make it the most state of the art training facility in the area.

That aesthetic improvement is awesome, but it’s the individual improvement Garzillo has continued to bring to each and every student at his Willow Grove school that distinguishes him as a Kickboxing instructor.

You will know two things the very first time you take class with Garzillo. He knows exactly how to motivate you to achieve your goals, and he is a world class practitioner of Kickboxing!
