My son had a great experience while going to this Tiger Schulman Location. I am truly happy with the character my child developed while going to class. The work ethic and dedication of the instructors and staff is also something I loved. I would highly recommend anyone to give this experience a try !!

Karla M.

My daughter joined last year at age 7 with no background and has grown immensely. They have a convenient after-school and Sat schedule and very flexible with changes. Joshu Angelo is dedicated and he inspires and motivates my child. He gratuitously offered free Zoom classes to her elementary school during remote learning which was amazing for him to volunteer his time in that way! This place is more than a school, it’s a family!

Selena S.

My son has been attending this school for two years and he loves it. The staff is great and very knowledgeable with every lesson. They also treat everyone like family. Highly recommended

My kid attends a different Tiger Schulmann’s school much closer to home but we’ve been here several times as when tournaments come around, I like to get him extra training at different locations. Good competition and a safe environment. My son was treated as if this was his home school. Sensei and staff made my son feel welcomed anytime.

At Middle Village, NY (Queens) kids find their Tiger under the patient guidance of Joshu Angelo Escobar.

Tiger Schulmann’s Middle Village helps students of all ages — from preschoolers to teens — build fitness, community, and lasting confidence through mixed martial arts.
Under the care and guidance of Head Instructor Joshu Angelo Escobar, students learn more than punch-kick karate. They build character — focus, self-respect, self-discipline, and mental toughness — through real martial arts achievements tailored to their age and ability. It’s a 360-degree approach to mind-body fitness that we call Finding Your Tiger. “I’m constantly inspired by our student’s growth,” says Joshu Escobar. “From shy to outgoing. Fearful to confident. No matter where our kids start, we instill a growth mindset that unlocks their full potential.”

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 Instructors Are the Difference.

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

Joshu Angelo Escobar

Like many 16-year-olds, Joshu Angelo Escobar found himself wasting away too much time on video games. But after just one class at Tiger Schulmann’s Rego Park location, he discovered a motivating force that would change his life. Today, Joshu Escobar brings 16 years of training to his role as Head Instructor of Tiger Schulmann’s Middle Village. “We all need someone in our lives to give us a push when needed and to remind us we are capable of accomplishing anything we set our minds on,” he says. “As an instructor, I strive to be that positive push for children and adults.”
Joshu Escobar mentors kids and teens through transformative martial arts classes that build mental and physical fitness. For adults, Joshu Escobar tailors his coaching to help students achieve their specific health, fitness, and training goals. “Here at my school, every member is family,” he says. “My job is to provide you with one-on-one attention and feedback and give you the personal support and you need—always with a positive spirit.”
