My child has been attending Tiger Schulmann’s in North Plainfield, NJ for the last 1.5 years. He has been enjoying it and has made good progress. The environment is very conducive for him with the right balance of discipline, encouragement and fun. There’s a lot of personal attention and instructors keep a close watch on the progress of the students. My son is right now taking online classes. He can’t wait to go back to regular classes once everything is back to normal.

Kids karate in North Plainfield sensei Paul

Sensei Paul Querido

“Time and time again we see students come in shy and unable to make eye contact. And through training, they evolve before our eyes into confident, smiling, happy people. It’s so rewarding.”

Sensei Querido has been teaching Martial Arts at Tiger Schulmann’s for over 30 years. He knows what works and what doesn’t. “Don’t try to follow what is popular or the hot new workout. We have a proven curriculum that has helped 1000’s.”  Sensei Querido also emphasizes the aspects of training that go beyond the physical. “Everything we do is done with the concept of ‘More than just martial arts’ in mind. Every parent and student wants and deserves respect. We give that and we teach it. What’s most important to Sensei Querido is the growth of his students, especially their increased self-confidence. “We help to instill confidence in all our students. This helps to prevent them from being bullied or submitting to peer pressure.” His combination of positivity and high energy is infectious. “I love what I do and I am passionate about doing it!”

“I fell in love with the training and learning. I lost 50 pounds in my first year and now I love helping others reduce stress, get in shape, and achieve fuller and happier lives.”

Sensei Munah Holland first began training at Tiger Schulmann’s based on her sister’s recommendation. Thinking it would be a good way to get in shape and learn self-defense, it quickly became her passion. Through a combination of natural talent and extremely hard work, Sensei Holland rose through the ranks to become a well-known and ranked professional Mixed Martial Arts athlete. She is the highest ranking Female Instructor in Tiger Schulmann’s. Having pushed herself to compete at the highest level, Sensei Holland knows what it takes to inspire others to be their best. “Teaching at any level is an exchange of energy. What you put into it, you always get back.” For Sensei Holland, it has never been just about martial arts… her emphasis has always been about the community that she helps to foster at Tiger Schulmann’s North Plainfield. “I love to see how much our program can transform people, kids, and adults, to grow stronger and be confident.”
