Top-notch operation and highly recommended for anyone in the area looking to start their kid(s) in martial arts. Sensei Chris is extremely professional and the other teachers are 100% committed and great. My kids thoroughly enjoyed their time there.

Jared N.

My son has been at Tiger Schulman Glendale location for two years. He loved the instructors, Mike and Cesar. Staffs are very friendly and they keep the place very clean. He always enjoyed going to class! Highly recommend it!

Jenny C.

Very Professional, in these days of cautions, I feel super safe taking my daughter there. They constantly clean & disinfectant the floor after each class, kids are required to wear their masks at all times & they do. Extremely happy with this Tiger Schulmann’s location.

Jania M.

The staff is amazing with kids. Very patient and makes everyone feel welcome and included. It’s a great community to be a part of.

Kim S.

The instructors are great with my 5-year-old and she looks forward to class! Their COVID precautions make me feel comfortable bringing my child to classes and I would suggest them to anyone whose child wants to do Martial arts.

Sharon B.

Sensei Iavarone is the heart of the school. He and his team have grown the school and are always willing to teach students (of all ages) newer skills. Sensei Lopez is a great addition, showing leadership, instilling confidence, and, for good measure, keeping things light enough to be fun but serious enough to be worthwhile! It warms my heart to see families bring their kids to learn self-defense and confidence, which they can apply anywhere else.

I. Z.

Great place for kids and adults. My son has been training in Glendale for 3 yrs now, my husband joined last year and we just signed up our daughter. Friendly and supportive environment.
Thank you sensei Ivarone, Sensei Lopez, Mike, Cesar, and all the staff for all you do!

Magdalena R.

My son has been at this location for 3 years and it has been the best investment I’ve made for my son. He’s built so much confidence. The staff is AMAZING. They work with you and their priority is always the safety and enjoyment of the children. Can’t wait for my daughter to start with little cubs soon.

Dennise B.

The staff is professional, dedicated and always there to help. From Day 1, I felt comfortable and accepted to the community. My children built self-confidence and structure. The Sensei’s are highly knowledgeable and motivating. School is always clean and maintained!

Piera B.

I have two boys 6 and 8. Both are taking classes 2 times a week in the Glendale location. They always pay close attention to each student. During the Pandemic, they started doing zoom classes for everyone. Kids were very happy to see their Sensei and have some normalcy in their life. Also, now they have the option for in-class or online classes.

At Glendale in Queens, NY kids find their Tiger under the patient guidance of Sensei Christopher Iavarone.

Tiger Schulmann’s Glendale, Queens helps students of all ages build fitness, friendships, and lasting confidence through martial arts.
Here students learn streetwise self-defense skills from a master martial artist with over 25 years of teaching experience, Sensei Iavarone. But the focus is more than punch-kick technique. Kids build character — grit, focus, self-discipline, and self-respect — 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.
“My student, Jane, came to the mat too shy to even say hello,” says Iavarone. “It took 10 tries just to complete her first class. Today, she’s one of my most vocal students and her parents couldn’t be happier. That’s the kind of personal growth we strive for every day.”

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 Christopher Iavarone

Sensei Christopher Iavarone, Head Instructor at our Glendale location, was “practically raised on the mat” and always knew he was destined to become a Tiger Schulmann’s instructor. “As a kid, Tiger Schulmann’s became the place I went to feel good about myself and all the physical activity made it easy to lose the excess weight,” he says. “Reaching my first black belt in record time (less than two years) gave me the confidence I lacked and the skills to defend myself. At an early age I learned the power of self discipline and what can be achieved.” Today, he brings over 25 years of teaching experience to help students of all ages realize their full potential.
Iavarone takes great pride in creating a bright, accessible, family-friendly atmosphere where students can get in the best shape of their lives supported by motivational instructors. He ensures that each student receives tailored training from master instructors, explaining that, when it comes to fitness, there is simply “no match for superior instruction, cleanliness and friendliness.” A passionate cook and health advocate, Iavarone also offers nutritional guidance and healthy recipes in his video series, Cooking with Sensei.
Sensei Iavone’s total-body adult kickboxing classes offer endless benefits, including a newly toned, flexible physique and self-defense skills that can be used in everyday life. But, he says, it is the self-discipline instilled by the practice that truly transforms all areas of his students’ lives.
