Arielle K.

My son and I have been training with Sensei Montes and Joshu Burgos for almost 4 years. It has not only been a great workout and a way to feel safer knowing how to defend myself, but it has also helped my son do better in school and become more confident. I would recommend this martial arts program to anyone looking to lose weight, build confidence, learn self-defense or just to have an outlet to de-stress. It’s been an amazing experience.

At New Windsor, NY kids find their Tiger under the patient guidance of Sensei Jose Montes.

Tiger Schulmann’s New Windsor has helped hundreds of students, from preschoolers to teens, build fitness, friendships, and lasting confidence through martial arts.
In New Windsor, students learn streetwise self-defense techniques from a proven master and grappling champion, Sensei Jose Montes. But the focus is more than punch-kick karate. Here, kids build character — focus, self-discipline, and a no-quit spirit — through martial arts achievements tailored to their age and ability. It’s a complete approach to mind-body fitness that we call Finding Your Tiger. “Our goal is to help kids build their focus and find motivation from within to reach their full potential,” says Montes. “We’re training leaders on and off the mat.”

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.

OUR PROVEN KIDS MARTIAL ARTS CURRICULUM

Self-Discipline Plus Self-Defense Equals Confidence

Parents love Tiger Schulmann’s because we empower their children with essential life skills.
By showing kids the power of hard work and determination, and giving them the tools to feel safe and secure, we build a foundation for achievement. Over time, those achievements – new martial arts skills and ranks earned through disciplined practice – build real confidence. And that confidence allows our students step out into the world and tackle new challenges without fear.
It’s a simple equation. But one with the proven power to change lives, both now and in the future.

Meet Our Head Instructor

Sensei Jose Montes

“Martial arts is in my blood,” says New Windor’s Owner and Head Instructor Jose Montes. The son of an Olympic Judo Coach, Montes began his training at age four and never stopped, eventually becoming a National Judo Champion himself.
A veteran of the competition circuit, Montes won the North American Grappling Association Championships in 2012 and 2013. But his central focus remains his students. “Our role as instructors is as a lighthouse,” he explains. “We can’t steer the actual ship, but we can show them the path to a safe harbor.”
Montes points to dozens of members, both adults and kids, who’ve Found Their Tiger under his guidance. “I had a student with a genetic spine issue and doctors told him he could never really learn martial arts. But he worked very hard. Really put in the time. And today, he’s a professional UFC fighter. That is the standard for hard work and perseverance that we aspire to.”
