See what students at Tiger Schulmann’s Paramus are saying

I have been training at Tiger Schulmann’s for a few years prior to giving birth to my first child. When I started training, I was wearing a size 8 clothes. After just a few months I was down to size 6, and then size 4. After my daughter was born, I have moved from Brooklyn, NY to NJ and never went back to training. Just recently, I started training again and finally lost all of the baby weight that I carried for over 5 years. I feel great, look great and have tons of energy. GYM is boring to me, but training at TSMMA Paramus is lots of fun. Instructors are awesome! They will motivate you and help you get the most out of the workout. Even my daughter trains at TSMMA Paramus and she loves it!

My Son Joined just before when he was 4 Years, Joshu(Now Sensei)Mike Trizano was so helpful to get him adjusted to the class. He is now 7 years and still going to the Tiger Schulmann’s , we have seen him gradually develop his confidence level and attenion. At the same time he was getting better each day with his kickboxing and grappling skills which helped him earn first position in Challenge of Champions. Both Joshu and Sensei Mike Trizano are pretty good at identifying where each student needs help and training them with individual attention. Thumbs up for Team Paramus and Sensei Rapoport !!!

What started as a personal journey to improving my own health has now become a family tradition. Both my 9-year-old son and my husband are now active students at the TSMMA Paramus school. The training is top-notch and the instructors are very professional and dedicated. You can tell this is not just a job to them, but rather a way of life. They instill a disciplined and “non quitting” mindset to all students. For someone like me, with no former athletic training, the beginner classes have been beneficial at some many levels. I highly recommend the TSMMA team for all your fitness needs.

From the first minute, this place has a very welcoming and friendly atmosphere compared to the others that I visited for my son’s training. My son (and now I) feels like a part of a family every time he goes to class. As my son advances the lessons are getting more fun for him (going from kickboxing to jujitsu). Ignore the negative review below. They are all very upfront and clear about signing a 1-year contract (like all other martial arts places). One thing that the senseis instill in the children a “non quitting spirit” which is lacking in today’s kids. The discipline that my son is learning is invaluable and he is not it getting anywhere else besides home. I highly recommend Tiger Shulmann’s to all who are interested.

Very positive experience. Our son has managed to grow and enjoy the sport. The staff is very attentive, dedicated and professional. Highly recommend to other parents looking for an indoor activity for their kids (boys and girls).

At Paramus, NJ kids find their Tiger under the patient guidance of Sensei Shawn Rapoport.

Tiger Schulmann’s Paramus has helped thousands of kids, from preschoolers to teenagers, build confidence, self-discipline, fitness, and friendship through martial arts and karate.
Our proven methodology, developed by Master Tiger Schulmann over 36 years, teaches more than punch-kick karate. Students learn critical life skills — focus, hard work, and a no-quit spirit—that help them thrive as confident leaders in school, at home, and beyond. “We give students the tools to reach their full potential and help them find the motivation from within,” says Rapoport. “Everyday we see kids who struggle with confidence turn around and become the brightest in the room.” That’s what Finding Your Tiger is all about.

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.

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 Shawn Rapoport

Owner and Head Instructor, Sensei Shawn Rapoport began his journey in martial arts at age 10. What started as a quest to learn self-defense and build confidence quickly turned into a life-changing career. Today, he brings nearly three decades of teaching experience and leadership to his role at Tiger Schulmann’s Ramsey and Paramus locations. During that time, he competed in Golden Glove boxing, kickboxing, and MMA, but he remains singularly focused on his students. “I love to see my young students grow in confidence, develop great technique, and watch my teens grow into powerful, fearless adults,” he says.
Rapoport’s high-energy adult kickboxing classes help members “see results, get in great shape, lose weight, and develop real techniques.” Recently, he says, “I helped a woman lose over 100 pounds. It saved her life.” But the Tiger Schulmann difference, he says, goes beyond fitness and weight loss. “We teach authentic self-defense and kickboxing techniques that really work on the street.” That builds a sense of security, confidence, and peace-of-mind, Rapoport says, that students won’t find anywhere else.
