I started my daughter here in December 2020 and I couldn’t be happier. She is always excited for classes, and motivated to keep moving up. Sensei and Sempi are absolutely amazing with kids! They have a tremendous amount of patience, are great about teaching them discipline, and their teachings are carried out through all aspects of life- school, other sports, home life. I can’t say enough good things about TSMMA.

My son is so happy to be back at the school practicing and as a parent, I feel comfortable letting him go back during this pandemic. Sensei and the staff have done an amazing job keeping the school clean and explaining the new process. Their professionalism is amazing! Thank you so much!

Tiger Schulmann’s is the best. Sensei puts his all into what he does. We can see the kids’ confidence, focus, and self-discipline grow. We have been satisfied all along since the time we joined in Aug 2018!

Rockaway TSMMA is an amazing mixed martial arts school. My son, daughter and I all train there. Each of us get exactly what we are looking for. My 5-year-old is learning discipline, focus, self-defense, and the importance of a non quitting spirit. My daughter (17yrs) and I are not only getting an intense workout but learning how to defend ourselves and how to maintain a healthy lifestyle with their nutritional program. The instructor and his staff are very helpful and are sure to work with you with whatever your goal is. Can’t wait to get my 3-year-old started : )

At Morris Plains, NJ kids find their Tiger under the patient guidance of Sensei David Castro.

Tiger Schulmann’s Morris Plains, NJ has helped thousands of kids, from preschoolers to teenagers, find fitness, friendship, self-discipline, and confidence through martial arts. “We help kids build confidence through achievement,” says Sensei Castro. “Once they learn how to build confidence, they can apply it in their everyday lives.” It’s a kind of mind-body fitness we call Finding Your Tiger.
Our proven, curriculum-based approach, developed by Master Tiger Schulmann over three decades, teaches more than karate techniques. Here, kids develop character and valuable life skills — focus, mental toughness, and the ability to stand up for themselves—that help them thrive in school, at home, and beyond. “We give students the tools to realize their full potential,” says Castro. “Our kids find motivation from within. They learn what hard work and a no-quit spirit really mean. Over time, they chase new challenges because they crave the feeling of accomplishment. And it all translates into a confidence that the whole world can see.”

Kids Who Find Their Tiger Are Forever Changed

Tiger Schulmann’s curriculum-based karate classes has helped thousands of children build confidence, resiliency, and develop lasting friendships. Our martial arts classes teach children self respect, focus and how to grow into mature, young men and women in a fun and safe environment.

Self-Confidence

As small wins add up, confidence grows. A student’s progression from white belt to black belt and the ranks in between, builds a confidence that goes well beyond class.

Fun, Friends & Fitness

Our kids karate classes help students put devices and distractions aside and replace them with fun and rewarding challenges that stimulate activity, real interaction.

“No-Quit” Spirit

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

Self-Defense

Combining martial arts techniques with proven anti-bullying strategies, gives kids the confidence and ability to stand up for themselves.

Meet Our Head Instructor

Sensei David Castro

Owner and Head Sensei David Castro began his journey in martial arts at age 12. What started as a quest to stop school bullying quickly turned into a meaningful career. “I knew by 17 that I wanted to become an instructor and help kids prevent and overcome the kind of bullying I endured.” Today, Castro brings over two decades of teaching experience and leadership to his role. “We help kids build confidence through achievement,” he explains. “Once they learn how to build confidence, they learn how to apply it in their everyday life. And confident kids don’t get bullied.”
Castro gives adult students the motivation and support they need to reach their fitness, weight loss, martial arts, and kickboxing goals. “Our school is diverse,” he explains. “People come in from all walks of life. But we’re all one big family. And we all have one thing in common—the desire to better ourselves.”
