    The decision to train at Tiger Schulmann’s was one of the best I have ever made. The TSMMA Wayne staff is devoted to their students development and their overall heath. The atmosphere is fun, but the aim is serious - martial arts skills and good fitness. I am grateful for all I have acheived since joining TSMMA. I am looking forward to many more years as a student!

    I walked into tsmma of Wayne over 10 years ago looking to learn how to throw some kicks and get a better workout. I've gotten so much more out of it than I could have ever imagined. I've trained at many of the TSMMA schools including the headquarters and am now back to training in the Wayne school. Tiger schulmanns is a great organization and Sensei Zapfel is one of the best instructors in the organization. I think everybody could benefit with this program and strongly recommend getting yourself and children involved.

    2 years and nearly 40 pounds ago, Sensei Zapfel approached me as I watched my son and daughter enjoying their class. He said, "you should really do this class," and he was absolutely right. Months later, I mustered the courage to get on the mat and leave the comfort zone of my usual, ineffective gym routine. At the end of the first class, covered head to toe in sweat, I stumbled into the office and signed up, knowing I'd likely be a customer for many years to come. The benefits of the class extend well beyond physical fitness and weight loss. My energy level is way up, along with my focus and confidence. Knowing that I can push myself beyond what I thought I was capable of has helped in my personal and professional life. The classes themselves are always fun and engaging. The staff miss nothing and their passion for the martial arts comes through in every minute of their instruction. The critical difference between this and other forms of exercise is that the primary focus is on perfecting the technique. The cardio and strength benefits are evident, but unlike other exercise classes, there is a singular concentration on the technique...and there are ALWAYS things to improve, whether it's the actual technique, or simply making it faster, stronger, or combining it with movement, a counter, or other techniques. I've referred several people to the class and will be bringing several more. It's not cheap, by any stretch, but if you actually GO to the classes that you're paying for each month, the cost per class is perfectly reasonable. Make no mistake, there is a very real time and cost commitment to doing this, but I'm in the best shape of my life at 44, I'm down 40lbs, just ran my first 5k (having never run more than a mile in my life prior to that) and my kids love that I'm always up for joining them in whatever activities they have in mind. Most people don't have the discipline to commit to internal training at the gym 3-4 days a week (myself included), so if you're in that boat, then this program is definitely for you.

    Challenge, commitment, change, these positive attributes are all the reasons why Tiger Schulmann’s Martial Arts works. Training in the Martial Arts, with a strong emphasis on technique pushes you physically. Making a commitment to make positive changes to your lifestyle and be consistent in your training creates a healthy mental attitude. Training at TSMMA is a downright sweaty, fun, challenge yourself good time. The instructors are very knowledgeable, the school is well run and organized and the supportive commraderie of your fellow students makes training extra special. I am so grateful for the opportunity to train at Tiger Schulmann’s Mixed Martial Arts in Wayne. Peggy L.

    Entering TSMA Wayne six years ago has by far been the best decision I have ever made. I came in with a priority of finding a new way to stay healthy. It did not take long for me to realize how much more I was gaining other than another way to exercise. Being a student of TSMA has filled me with confidence and empowerment. Sensei Zapfel is an incredible instructor and the amount I have learned over the years is incomparable.
