My daughter loves going to class. I rarely have to push her out the door to go and when she gets done she feels great! It is the missing piece we needed for a well rounded week of discipline + play + physical n mental challenge. Teachers are caring, experienced, and motivating !

My son has been training at Tiger Schulmann’s in Astoria for almost 8 years. It is the best martial arts school. He is taught valuable lessons in respect, understanding, empathy, morality, integrity, honor, and leadership, as well as learning import life skills of self-discipline, structure, and prioritizing. He has learned how to defend himself both verbally and physically as well as how to determine which the situation calls for. He had gained confidence and the knowledge of how to care for himself emotionally, mentally, and physically. Tiger Schulmann’s truly trains every part of the student for every aspect of life. There is no greater training anywhere.

It was great to be back at the school again. My daughter had fun she’s excited to be back too. They keep everything clean and have safe distances. Which is ideal and are making sure to ensure everyone is safe. And that is truly appreciated.

Nikola W.

Highly recommend! Both my son and I trained with Joshu Aleen, amazing energy and always encouraging! We’ve had a great experience.

Genesis W.

Great instructors! Amazing workout! It is a very welcoming place for all ages.

I’m so glad I signed my children up with Tiger Schulmann’s. Sensei really cares about the students and it’s been like a second family for my boys. I really appreciate the way Sensei speaks to the children. He treats them with respect and teaches them valuable lessons for life and I believe this has helped and will continue to help mold them into respectable people. Learning how to defend themselves is a plus but teaching them hard work and perseverance and training them mentally not only physically is even more important to me and I am grateful we found this school.

My Son has been training at TSMMA Astoria for 3 years now and the way he has grown as a young man over that period has been great. He has learned many things such as Self Respect, Discipline, and self-defense. It’s not a just gym but more of a family & community that keeps everyone engaged and welcome.

At Queens - Astoria, NY kids find their Tiger under the patient guidance of Sensei Anthony Viscovich.

Tiger Schulmann’s Astoria, Queens has helped thousands of kids, from preschoolers to teens, build fitness, friendship, and lasting confidence through martial arts.
Under the guidance of Head Instructor Viscovich, students learn more than punch-kick karate. They build character — focus, grit, self-respect, and self-discipline — through martial arts achievements tailored to their age and ability. It’s a proven approach to mind-body fitness that we call Finding Your Tiger. “Every student has their own story and their own challenges to overcome — shyness, bullying, ADHD, speech or learning impairments,” says Viscovich. “Here, we develop the work ethic and mental toughness to overcome obstacles and transform our weaknesses into our greatest strengths.”

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 Anthony Viscovich

Anthony Viscovich began his journey in martial arts at age 28. “I felt a more disciplined life would lead to a happier life,” he explains. Today he brings two decades of teaching experience to this role as Owner and Head Instructor of Tiger Schulmann’s Astoria. “I love teaching,” he says, “and students will not find a more positive or disciplined instructor.”
Teaching martial arts to children, he says, is more about process than specific skills or techniques. “It is the process that brings out this amazing confidence in them,” he says. “It’s fun to watch a shy little person turn into a strong, independent young person. It’s a very fulfilling feeling to know you’ve helped someone overcome their fears.”
Similarly, Viscovich loves “getting [adult students] to do things they thought they could never do.” “Once members pick up a technique or two and see how good they can get at defending themselves,” he says, “it becomes an obsession.” Viscovich cites one student, Ian, who joined his adult kickboxing program 50 pounds overweight and painfully introverted. “Ian lost 30 pounds in his first year and started competing in year two. He’s now down 50 pounds and is always trying to improve his form and technique. He embodies the no-quit spirit and motivates all of us never to give up.”
