See what students at Tiger Schulmann’s North Plainfield are saying

My child has been attending Tiger Schulmann’s in North Plainfield, NJ for the last 1.5 years. He has been enjoying it and has made good progress. The environment is very conducive for him with the right balance of discipline, encouragement and fun. There’s a lot of personal attention and instructors keep a close watch on the progress of the students. My son is right now taking online classes. He can’t wait to go back to regular classes once everything is back to normal.

Our son has been attending TS during the last two years and we can’t be happier. We like the discipline they teach and how they make the class rigorous and fun at the same time. We saw an incredible growth in our son and we are thankful to Sensei Holland, Sensei Querido and Antoine for instilling their passion in their excellent work. Our experience is absolutely positive.

At North Plainfield, NJ kids find their Tiger under the patient guidance of Senseis Paul Querido & Munah Holland.

Tiger Schulmann’s North Plainfield helps kids of all ages develop fitness, confidence, respect, and self-discipline through martial arts. It’s a transformation we call Finding Your Tiger and at our North Plainfield school, it comes down to our four C’s:
  • Community: Students thrive in a fun, safe and supportive environment.
  • Character Development: Students achieve success through self-discipline, focus, mental toughness, and hard work.
  • Curriculum: Students ladder up a mountain of small wins—essential martial arts skills and ranks—building lasting confidence through achievement.
  • Certified Instructors: Our teachers are rigorously trained and tested over years of apprenticeship.
Refined over three decades by Master Tiger Schulmann himself, our proven methodology helps students become strong, confident leaders in and out of the classroom. “The transformation in our students is remarkable and so rewarding,” says Sensei Querido. “Time and time again we see kids come in shy and unable to make eye contact. And through training they evolve before our eyes into confident, smiling, happy kids.” “We give our students consistency,” explains Holland, “and from that consistency comes leadership, trust, safety and calmness.”

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.
