See what students at Tiger Schulmann’s Staten Island - Tottenville are saying

This location has been safe and clean prior to covid and even more precautions have been taken since. Tottenville Tiger Schulmann’s has continuously been a safe place for my child to get regular exercise and since public schools have been closed, I know my child can maintain a healthy lifestyle. The instructors have been great leaders and influential in teaching focus, self-discipline and self-defense to my child.

Karen K.

Best instructors around. Very professional. Great with kids, teaching them important values, confidence and discipline. Highly recommend.

Stephen G.

Excellent staff, and great with the kids. The owner Sensei Nick Pace is a experienced and professional martial artist that goes out of his way to accommodate individual needs.

Mike D.

Sensei Pace and the Tottenville Tiger Schulmann’s Team are amazing! Our son has been training with them for almost 3 years now, since age 7, and he loves it. The boost in his self-confidence as he improves and earns each belt promotion has made such a difference. They are professional, motivating, and most importantly, they really care for their students. We highly recommend TTSMMA!

Amy K.

Sensei Pace and his instructors are and amazing team! My two girls started attending classes at Tottenville two years ago when we had some issues with bullying, & it has been an amazing experience. Not only have they become more confident and stronger, but Sensei Pace installs a feeling of family within his team that has truly given my children a place they feel they belong.

Denise D.

TSMMA Tottenville is first class all the way. Staff is always friendly and courteous. Pre-Covid, the place was spotless and clean. Now the staff has upped their cleaning protocol to meet and exceed the guidelines for Covid. But most importantly, what your child learns from Sensei Pace and his staff is PRICELESS! Our family wouldn’t have it any other way.

Vince G.

This school has truly gone above and beyond to take every precaution and every measure to keep their students and staff safe during this time. They keep their classes fun and entertaining, yet still teaching discipline and focus. Every parent and student has had nothing but great things to say about the return to classes, and everyone was so excited to come back.

Madysen M.

Sensei Nick Pace and his team put the kids first. They not only teach the children about martial arts, they want to make sure they’re doing the right thing at home and in school. It’s a very positive environment with family values. My child is very happy going there.

Amando H.

Our son goes to Tiger Schulmann’s and absolutely loves it. Not only are they remarkable with kids and teaching karate skills, but they also teach them the discipline a child needs. I would highly recommend it! We love it!

At Staten Island, NY (Tottenville) kids find their Tiger under the patient guidance of Sensei Nicholas Pace.

Tiger Schulmann’s of Tottenville, Staten Island has helped hundreds of kids, from preschoolers to teens, build fitness, friendship, and lasting confidence through martial arts.
Here, students learn streetwise self-defense from a proven master and UFC veteran, Sensei Nick Pace. But the focus is more than punch-kick karate. Kids build character — focus, assertiveness, self-discipline, and grit — through martial arts achievements tailored to their age and ability. It’s a proven approach to mind-body fitness that we call Finding Your Tiger. “Every student has their own story. Their own obstacles to overcome,” says Pace. “Shyness, bullies, learning or speech disabilities. Here, we develop the work ethic and mental toughness to overcome life’s challenges and become the best version of ourselves.”

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.

Meet Our Head Instructor

Sensei Nicholas Pace

Nick Pace brings nearly two decades of professional mixed martial arts teaching experience to his role as Owner and Head Instructor at Tiger Schulmann’s of Tottenville, Staten Island. Pace began his own training at Tiger Schulmann’s as a 10-year-old obsessed with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. From his first class, he never wavered on his dream of becoming a Sensei.
Pace went on to become the first Tiger Schulmann’s student to compete in the UFC. He holds the titles for the Ring of Combat Bantamweight Champion and Cage Fury Fighting Bantamweight Champion. He also invented his own submission in his UFC debut known as “The Pace Choke.” Today, Pace shares knowledge garnered over a lifetime of training and competition to instill a non-quitting spirit in students of all ages. He takes pride in teaching kids how to effectively stand up to bullies and gives teenagers an outlet to release stress and mature into a new phase of their life within the disciplines of martial arts. For his adult students, he leads fun kickboxing classes that help them achieve their physical fitness goals, release stress, and find community. “Many of our adult students build lasting friendships by training with us,” he says.
