Both my kids have been going to Tiger Schumann since they were 5 years old. The institution has helped them become disciplined, independent, strong, confident, and brave women. I hope they keep up the good work forever. Thank you!

Smitha N.

Always happy with Shilhan and his teachings! My 3 children have been coming here for 5/7 years. Very happy! Great place to learn MMA.

Matthew R.

This has been the best activity for our son. He has made friends and has become more outgoing with tons of confidence. He also is stronger and more athletic than before. My husband also loves it- especially grappling. Tiger Schulmann’s has become another part of our family and Shihan Simpson is the best!

Melissa B.

I love the Tiger Shulmann’s program and Shihan Simpson and his team here are absolutely amazing. They welcomed is with open arms and listened compassionately to my children when we started. The connection my kids have with the staff has become incredibly important to us. Currently during the pandemic they’re taking it seriously and instituting what I feel like are great precautions. They’re one of the only places I feel safe letting my kids enter and I couldn’t imagine our life without them.

Marta N.

Alejandra M.

I have been with the organization 20 years and counting. Because of my training, my experiences, as a person, I gained skills that enriched every aspect of my life and helped to empower me. I have great people I train with and great instructors. My children all grew up in the organization and have taken skills and empowerment with them as well. I have not regretted the day I began training and as an over 50 years old, I can say I still train to this day.

Tiger Schumann’s is a great place if you want your children to learn self-defense and self-discipline. The teachers are very friendly but take action when they need to. It is a great establishment that is well worth it.

At Allentown, PA kids find their Tiger under the patient guidance of Shihan James Simpson.

The premier martial arts academy in Allentown, PA, Tiger Schulmann’s helps kids of all ages—from pre-schoolers to teens—develop confidence, self-discipline, fitness, and friendships. “I love to see the change in our students, from shy kids to confident kids,” says Shihan Simpson. “We teach kids how to be leaders, not just followers.”

That’s the Tiger Schulmann difference. Grounded in the traditions and values of martial arts, our proven curriculum empowers children with essential life skills:

  • Self-Discipline
  • Focus
  • Mental toughness
  • The ability to stand up for themselves
Developed over 36 years of teaching, our program helps kids ladder up a mountain of achievements—new martial arts skills and ranks— that build real confidence. And that confidence lets our students step out into the world without fear of failure. “We give students more than fitness,” says Simpson. “We’re a family of instructors and students, and we all help each other get strong inside and out.”

The difference between success and failure isn’t talent but mental toughness. Our classes teach students to push past obstacles and achieve their goals.
