See what students at Tiger Schulmann’s Yonkers are saying

My son was part of the Tiger cubs class where they focus more on discipline, listening, following instructions and patience. Shihan is excellent at maintaining order while simultaneously keeping it a fun and playful atmosphere. “Kick then in the pants and put your arm around their shoulder” atmosphere. I had just enrolled my son in the older kids class when the quarantine hit. It’s a bit pricey but well worth it.

My son has been attending tiger Schulman’s for almost 4 years. I cannot say enough how great this experience has been for him. The staff is amazing and have been great role models for our son. He’s grown confident and has become very driven, definitely recommend.

Katerina M.

I can’t say enough great things about Tiger Schulmann’s in Yonkers. I, as well as my children, have attended for many years. We get a kick-butt workout. We have not only gotten stronger mentally and physically, we have become part of a family. It is a caring environment! I highly recommend it!

Julane L.

The crew are amazing!. Just great all around teachers to help your kids some good kickboxing techniques.

Samantha

Can’t say enough about TSMA Yonkers. My family and I all train here and it is an extended family that I am so glad I gained. If you want to learn self-defense, get a great workout, and be part of a team that challenges you, picks you up when you are down, and roots for one another, this is your place.

My wife, my son, and I are all taking classes at Tiger Schulmann’s in Yonkers. Besides being instructed by 3 of the best in the business, SHIHAN Peter Tirelli, SENSEI Danny Ramirez, and JOSHU Brandon Quito, they always make us feel welcome and comfortable. We all have a great relationship in the school, always there to lend a hand or tell a few jokes, but once we’re on the mat it’s all business. We’re always positively reinforced as we learn to be a close to “perfect” as we can be. My son is 7 and they try to keep the kid’s class fun but serious. A lot of pro fighters came from Tiger Schulmann’s, 2 of them from the Yonkers school—are YOU next???
OSU!!!!!

At Yonkers, NY kids find their Tiger under the patient guidance of Shihan Peter Tirelli.

Tiger Schulmann’s Yonkers helps students of all ages — from preschoolers to teens — build fitness, friendships, confidence, and community through martial arts and karate.
Our Yonkers students learn more than punch-kick karate techniques. They build character — discipline, focus, and grit — through real achievement. Our proven curriculum, developed by Master Tiger Schulmann over 36 years of instruction, teaches valuable life skills that help students thrive in school, at home, and beyond. It’s a complete mind-body approach that we call Finding Your Tiger.

Kids Who Find Their Tiger Are Forever Changed

Fun, Friends & Fitness

Meet Our Head Instructor

Shihan Peter Tirelli

Shihan Peter Tirelli began his martial arts journey at age four and today leverages over three decades of teaching experience as Owner and Head Instructor of our Yonkers school. He brings an untamed sense of adventure, discipline, and mental toughness to everything he takes on, from the mountains, where he’s an avid rock climber, to the mat. A seasoned competitor, Tirelli won the Senior Grappling Championships three times, and placed 3rd in the Senior World Championships.
In class, Tirelli pushes members to achieve their best, helping instill Tiger Schulmann’s signature non-quitting spirit. He provides students with the personalized coaching needed to continuously improve their fitness, self-discipline, and drive, improving their lives at home, at work, and at school. “My students give their heart and soul,” he says, “and I give mine right back.” The end result is a newfound level of fitness and confidence that motivates students to achieve more than they ever dreamed possible.
