At Staten Island - New Dorp, NY kids find their Tiger under the patient guidance of Sensei John Delaney.

Tiger Schulmann’s New Dorp, Staten Island helps children of all ages build fitness, friendships, and lasting confidence through martial arts.
Under the leadership of Sensei Delaney, kids learn more than punch-kick karate. They develop essential life skills — focus, grit, seld-respect, and self-discipline — through martial arts achievements tailored to their age and ability. It’s a 360-degree approach to fitness that we call Finding Your Tiger. “Our students master techniques,” says Delany, “but in the process, they build confidence and mental toughness that helps them achieve anything they set their mind to.”

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.

KIDS KARATE AT TIGER SCHULMANN’S

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

Sensei John Delaney

John Delaney started his journey in martial arts at age 23 in search of the tools for self-defense.“Early on, I loved how I felt while I trained,” he says, “and I wanted to pass that feeling on to others.” Today, he brings nearly three decades of teaching expertise to his role as Owner and Head Instructor of our New Dorp, Staten Island school.
Delaney views martial arts as an opportunity to build his students’ confidence and make them feel good about themselves. “My students inspire me every time they step on the mat,” says Delaney, “how far they’ve come, how martial arts has taught them to be mentally tough and not to give up. One of our instructors, Rob Varricchio, perfectly exemplifies this no-quit spirit. He wasn’t naturally gifted. But over time he developed a fantastic work ethic. Today, he’s passionate about teaching and has his sights set on the UFC!”
Delany’s full-body adult kickboxing classes help members achieve that same focus and discipline while “giving students a killer workout.” “My school is like a big family,” he says. “It’s a fun place to hang out and train, and you learn real self-defense techniques at the same time. So it’s great for peace of mind, and a good way to relieve tension.”
