See what students at Tiger Schulmann’s Eatontown are saying

My son has definitely been learning self-control and discipline. Class sizes are small. Each student gets individual attention to ensure they are learning martial arts skills properly. I recommend this gym if you want an emphasis on discipline and skill for your child.

Katelyn G.

I started my son in classes around 4 years old. It’s great exercise and teaches him discipline. He has fun while also learning to work hard and treat others fairly. He looks forward to his classes every week.

Amy H.

Sensei V makes everyone feel welcome and at home in his dojo. He is an excellent instructor with a great passion for what he does. This definitely shows in his classes. You get a great workout and really sweat! He is also super patient and great with the children’s classes. He is the best!

Maria A.

Eatontown TS is a wonderful place for kids. Sensei is amazing with the kids, teaching them important values, skills, and how to defend themselves. He has done everything possible to continue in a safe manner through the pandemic and help them keep up with the routine. Highly recommended!

Susan M.

Sensei Villanueva is wonderful with the kids teaching them discipline and building their confidence. He is a perfect balance between stern and disciplined to kind and patient. He also keeps the school immaculate. We would never think of leaving Tiger Schulmann’s Eatontown!

Ana G.

Tiger Schulmann’s is a fantastic way to work out and boost confidence. Sensei Villanueva is friendly but firm and knows each person’s limits and abilities to push them to the next level. Great for all ages and abilities.

Alexandra P.

Love it for me! Nothing better for stress release, fitness and self-defense skills! Love it for my family! My boys love Sensei V and are proud of their achievements! Warning- highly addictive- in a very good way

Sabrina

Just started my son here, and I am beyond happy so far!! Sensei Villanueva is kind, patient and caring. He takes the time to individually learn the needs, strengths and weaknesses of each student and truly wants the best for them inside and outside the doors of TSMA. So glad that we made the choice to study here with him!

Sterling A.

Truly amazed at how the instructor works with the children. Unbelievable patience, does not discourage anyone, yet keeps the martial arts discipline for the kids to learn important life lessons of self-defense while building their confidence and improving their self-control. Great way to raise determined, respectful, healthy children.

Tara R.

My daughter has been attending classes since September and to say she has grown, would be a great understatement. Not only does she learn to defend herself, she has learned responsibility, respect for others and most of all, she is learning to be a person we all love and can be proud of.
Thank you for being so great with her!

Tiger Schulmann’s Eatontown, NJ has helped thousands of kids, from preschoolers to teens, build fitness, confidence, and community through karate and martial arts.

Meet Our Head Instructor

Sensei Jose Villanueva

Tiger Schulmann Eatontown’s Owner and Head Sensei Jose Villanueva began his martial arts journey in search of a new, more engaging way to stay fit. “I was tired of just going to the gym,” he says. He earned his black belt three years later and began competing in amateur MMA, winning the Asylum Fight League title, and later in professional MMA where he won the Lou Neglia Ring of Combat. Today, with nearly two decades of teaching experience behind him, Sensei Villanueva loves giving kids and adults a fun and safe “home away from home where they can be themselves . . . We provide busy members with a stress-free environment. And help them get through life’s challenges from a martial arts perspective.”
Sensei Villanueva oversees kids karate classes and high-energy adult kickboxing workouts that are geared for all levels of experience. “Eatontown is a melting pot, which I love,” he says. “And in our school, we’re one big family. We teach from a proven curriculum that helps students master proper techniques. They’re challenging, but not impossible, and we’re there to guide you every step of the way.”
