See what students at Tiger Schulmann’s Elmwood Park are saying

This gym is amazing. All of the instructors come with a ton of knowledge, patience and dedication. All classes are taught with specific goals in mind and the learning aspect is taken very seriously. It is clear that the instructors are happy when their students are happy. The schedule is also great with a lot of different classes to chose from. Wouldn’t chose any other place to train.

My son love the place and the stuff is very friendly. Also parents have enough space to chill out while class is done.

Edwin B.

I came to Tiger Schulmann’s in search of an activity to help my son become more active but most of all to build esteem and confidence. I can honestly say that this is hands down the best thing I have ever invested in for my son. After every class he comes home feeling so proud of himself! The staff are very warm and welcoming. Everyone treats you like family and I think that’s extremely vital especially for my son.

My entire family and I have been training with TSMMA since 2005. They have not only provided us with the physical and mental training that we were looking for but they have continued to go above and beyond with my son who is on the Autism Spectrum. They had him involved in his first COC (challenge of champions) with a special needs division. Every participant lit up with joy and (as did their parents). I absolutely highly recommend this place for anyone as well as your entire family!!

Both my children have progressed since joining Tiger Schulmann, Elmwood Park. They grew so much over the years, this school helped them to obtain daily achievements, improved their attention span, increased their discipline and they developed self-esteem as well as confidence in being able to defend themselves physically and vocally. All around great choice for every child and beneficial for adults, too. Martial Arts will improve not just your physical ability but also strengthen you emotionally and mentally. Highly recommend this school, best instructors around who LOVE what they do and exude LOVE to their students. They are the very best!

Ida P.

My whole family goes here. The family-like atmosphere is very welcoming. It’s been an amazing positive outlet for my husband and kids who all have struggled with anxiety especially with the pandemic and how it has affected them.

Jaime D.

I am so happy with this establishment! My three-year-old son loves it! This place is clean and maintained well. The staff is friendly and welcomed us right away.

Jamie P.

What an amazing staff and Facility. The entire team there is amazing! Although it is a group class they take the time to work with each child individually to ensure they are growing and developing. I see my son use the never-give-up mentality in all he does as it has become a culture for him. So glad we came here!

Nicole M.

This is a wonderful school and has been beneficial to both of my boys. My oldest child has always wanted to quit anything he has gotten involved in (ie: soccer, t-ball, etc) but does not have that same attitude towards TSMA Elmwood Park. Instead, he gets excited when he knows he is going and I always striving to do better at each class. His confidence has grown tremendously and we owe it all to the amazing staff and the structure this school brings.

Nicole B.

My son has been training here for a while & absolutely loves it. I started as well & it is amazing workout. I love the facility, the staff & recommend this school for anyone looking to get in shape & have fun doing it.

Jody D.

We tried many different schools ended up here
I can say I’m very happy here and have 3 kids enrolled. The place is very clean and the instructors actually care about their students. I would recommend anyone to this location. Shihan Tirelli and Joshu Cobra genuinely care about their students. We travel from out of town just to have our kids here.

Welcome to Tiger Schulmann’s, Elmwood Park, NJ

Led by Shihan David Tirelli, a master instructor with nearly three decades of teaching experience, Tiger Schulmann’s Elmwood Park helps students of all ages—from preschoolers to adult learners—build full-body fitness, confidence, and community through martial arts and kickboxing.
Conveniently located between the Garden State Parkway and Route 80, this flagship location offers top-level instruction and elite training equipment, including a cage and kickboxing ring for our professional-level fighters. But the real focus, says ShihanTirelli, is more than martial arts technique. It’s character development. “We have a proven curriculum—developed over three decades—that builds members’s mental and physical spirit. We push students to believe in themselves and instill the discipline they need to achieve their goals in and out of our school.”

KIDS MARTIAL ARTS

Kids Who Find Their Tiger Are Forever Changed

Meet Our Head Instructor

Shihan David Tirelli

New Jersey Hall of Fame Pioneer Fighter, David Tirelli, brings nearly three decades of teaching experience to his role as Head Instructor at our Elmwood Park school. As the owner of this flagship gym, Tirelli takes pride in offering members a quality of instruction they’ll find nowhere else. “As one of Tiger Schulmann’s flagship headquarters, we have amazing instructors that attract members from all walks of life, including top fighters,” says Tirelli. “Gyms tend to be boring and dull. Our motivated instructors are excited to help you reach your goals. Classes pass by fast, so you’re never bored.”
Tirelli’s Elmwood Park school offers an extensive schedule of martial arts classes for kids and adults of all ages and abilities. “For my young students,” he says, “I focus on building their mental and physical spirit. We help them practice self-discipline by working towards and achieving goals, and develop the tools to stand up to bullies.” Tirelli’s adult kickboxing classes offer members a break from the stresses of the day. “I’m inspired watching our members get into great shape and let go of anxiety. They lead busy lives, but here we help everyone relax and enjoy themselves.”
