My daughter recently came back to Tiger Schulmann’s Martial Arts after a break. I was instantly pleased with Joshu Music. His patience and dedication to every single child on the mat are noticeable. He treats the children respectfully no matter their behavior. We highly recommend this school.

Monica A.

The most fantastic place for your child to develop martial arts skills, improve discipline, make friends and get a great work out. My son is excited to come to every class. He is stronger, fitter, more focused, and even his grades at school have improved. Sensei and Joshu are amazing teachers and mentors.

Donna O.

Our daughter started 5 years ago at age 7. Zoe loved it from the start. As it became more challenging, she wanted to quit but Sensei always gave her the encouragement and focus she needed to stick with it, not to give up, and work hard for a goal. We’ve had her try so many other sports, but nothing compares to what she learned & continues to learn here – not only in her health, strength, confidence & abilities, but in the great TSMA family we all became a part of.

The school is great, I have 2 kids attending and they enjoy it! The school is fun and very much entertaining to them while helping them to attain discipline. They seemingly can’t wait to get to the class and always make sure that I don’t forget the day and time.

Sutton J.

The expert training you receive here is amazing!! From the adult to the kid’s classes all the way to PreK program the instruction is phenomenal. Sensei Nick, Joshu Music are amazing teachers. Extremely patient with the kids and know how to get to them. With the adults, they know how to push you to a level you thought didn’t exist. With the PreK, they are amazing how they teach the little ones self-control, balance and amazing motor skills.

Daniel B.

I’ve been going since I was 7; I’m now 10. I’ve made so many great friends and learned how to defend myself. Sensei is THE BEST!

Zoe P.

My son has been attending for a year. The two instructors are excellent, the class times are convenient and there’s always parking available.

I can’t say enough great things about Tiger Schumann’s (Hauppauge). My son has been coming here for about 4 years now. All the instructors are amazing and you can just tell that they love what they do. My son has created such a bond with everyone and truly loves coming to class every week. They teach discipline all while creating a fun environment. I highly recommend it.

Erica R.

Very happy with the results. My son enjoys every class he attends. The staff is very professional.

Jorge B.

Fantastic martial arts school. My son looks forward to his classes every week and works hard to earn his next belt. The instructors are patient, encouraging and firm with the students. My son is less frustrated and more disciplined since he’s been going here. Highly recommended.

Danielle M.

My son Alex has been attending Tiger Schulmann’s (Hauppauge) since 2018. They are truly amazing at what they do and how they interact with the kids. All the instructors are amazing and so patient especially with me LOL. I would highly recommend Tiger Schulmann’s 🙂

At Stamford, CT kids find their Tiger under the patient guidance of Sensei Nick Demetrius.

Sensei Nick Demetrius brings more than 20 years of martial arts teaching experience to his role as head instructor at Tiger Schulmann’s. He goes above and beyond to make our Stamford location a supportive space where lifelong friendships can be made. “I’m inspired every day to see my second family – my students,” says Demetrius. In the Stamford school, “we are all here for each other.” For students and their families, that means personalized guidance, expert coaching, and the fun and motivation kids need to achieve their goals.
An experienced athlete and fighter, Sensei Demetrius earned Connecticut’s #1 rank in forms and kumite three years in a row and repeatedly placed in the top 5 in the US for his age and weight class. But through it all, his number one goal was to be a Sensei. “When I was young, my instructor – Shihan Tirelli Sr. – was my super hero.” Today, he says, “I love teaching kids because I know the martial arts skills they’re learning will make them more confident in all aspects of their lives – like it did for me!”

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.
