I can’t speak highly enough about TSMA Middle Village. The teachers are so knowledgeable, patient, and encouraging. I’ve never done kickboxing before and I was nervous to start because I’m not an athletic person but they’ve made the environment welcoming and let everyone go at their own pace. I always leave in a good mood, looking forward to the next class

Tasha L.

My son had a great experience while going to this Tiger Schulman Location. I am truly happy with the character my child developed while going to class. The work ethic and dedication of the instructors and staff is also something I loved. I would highly recommend anyone to give this experience a try !!

Karla M.

My daughter joined last year at age 7 with no background and has grown immensely. They have a convenient after-school and Sat schedule and very flexible with changes. Joshu Angelo is dedicated and he inspires and motivates my child. He gratuitously offered free Zoom classes to her elementary school during remote learning which was amazing for him to volunteer his time in that way! This place is more than a school, it’s a family!
