See what students at Tiger Schulmann’s Bay Ridge are saying

It is definitely about building character, confidence, strength and the ability to defend yourself, but yet it is so much more than that. Tiger Schulmann Bayridge is a culture where you build friendships, and by default become a family that drive one another to dig deep down within yourself to accomplish things that you never knew you could.

My daughter has been coming for a year and loves it!! She constantly asks to come extra and is really helping her confidence! I highly recommend to all adults and children. Just a great, clean place with serious MMA discipline.

I’ve been going to Tiger Schulmann’s MMA for over a year now. Not only is it one of the best workouts I’ve ever had, but its fun. A lot of people think that its expensive, but they don’t realize that it’s better than any gym. Punching and kicking is a better stress reliever than a treadmill. Also, when was the last time you went to the gym and didn’t see a fat trainer? That’s motivation. The instructors here are outstanding and the head instructor is one of the top professional fighters around. If you want a workout or even just blow off steam, come here, otherwise, go to one of the gyms in the area and kill time.

Took a free class here on Saturday and loved it. The instructor was super helpful and great. Highly recommend giving this studio a try. Hope to take more classes with them in the future! Boxing is such an amazing workout and a great way to burn calories.

I’ll keep this short and simple… First off, great atmosphere and awesome staff! Sensei is top notch and is/was a professional MMA fighter at the highest level. Not only do you get an awesome workout training kickboxing/grappling(jiu jitsu), but it gives you more confidence and teaches you discipline. Sensei and his team encourage students to push themselves to work hard while providing great instructions in the martial arts. It’s done so much for me and I can’t thank them enough! Osu

Michael G.

I absolutely love this school! Sensei Levi has been an amazing instructor and a fantastic person. He really helped me lose about 15 pounds and he is very knowledgeable not only in fitness, but nutrition as well.

Anna L.

It’s great it’s been awesome for my daughter it’s helped her immensely with her physical therapy.

Tamara G.

The best decision EVER!! The training, experience, and conditioning my kids are receiving are going to take them through life’s challenges! They’ve improved immensely from day one and hope to surpass their potential as they continue to train! Sensei Querido is amazing. Not just an instructor, but a mentor who teaches with a passion! I highly recommend this center for those who want their kids – and themselves – to gain discipline and focus in the mind and body, and become part of a wonderful family of staff, students, and their families!

Huma A.

“Great organization, great kids, and great instructors. Our Sensei is awesome a qualified well-respected leader. He’s helped my son grow, gain self-esteem and self-discipline. I would recommend this place to anyone with children looking for guidance, direction, and a life skill that will assist them in every aspect of their life.”

Sandra M.

I am very new to this mixed martial arts world and family. I say family because that’s how it feels. This place is something special and I’m proud to be a part of it. Two weeks ago, my son barely made it through the door on our first trial lesson and after last night’s class, he asked if he could come 3 times a week! I highly recommend this extraordinary family and professional values establishment.
