Joshu and Carlos are very kind and always take the time to answer all our questions and concerns. Thanks to them my daughter got more confident. Thank you!!

Sandra O.

My son trained nearly 10 years, starting at the age of 5, with the assistance of Sempai Jorge. I began training nearly 6 years ago, having the pleasure of receiving Sempai Jorge’s instruction. No one is more deserving of running their own school. His dedication and professionalism are top notch.

It’s a 360-degree approach to mind-body fitness that we call Finding Your Tiger.

Meet Our Head Instructor

Sensei Nissim Levy

Nissim Levy set off on his martial arts journey at 22 and immediately knew he’d found his career path. Today he brings over 25 years of teaching experience to his role as Owner and Head Instructor of Tiger Schulmann’s Bay Ridge in Brooklyn, NY.
“We don’t just teach martial arts,” he says, “we change lives. Shy, timid kids grow bold and confident. Children who struggle with bullying learn to stand up for themselves. My partner here in Bay Ridge, Joshu Arce, came to us as a chunky kid. He worked his butt off and at 18 became a professional fighter. We bring 110% every day to make transformation like that possible.”

Meet Our Head Instructor

Jorge Rivera

Jorge Rivera began his martial arts journey 15 years ago as a way to get in shape and learn self-defense. He quickly found the results were more than physical. “Training made me calmer and gave me the tools to build stronger relationships.” Soon, he says, “I wanted to help others achieve the same results.” Today he brings a decade of teaching experience to his roles as Owner and Head Instructor of Tiger Schulmann’s Jackson Heights.
As a mentor and coach to young students, Rivera strives to “help kids set a strong foundation of self-discipline that prepares them for future growth.” “We provide teens with an important outlet,” he continues, “that can help them find themselves during tough times.”
Rivera helps adults of all fitness levels get in shape through authentic kickboxing classes, while also providing a fun and rewarding outlet from their everyday lives. “Empowering people with self-defense gives them the tools to change their lives,” he explains. “And, with me, you have an instructor to motivate you every step of the way.”
