Kristin is such an incredibly patient and kind teacher. My daughter absolutely loved the class and looked forward to it each week! I believe she learned so much more beyond karate moves. She still raises her hand when she wants to interrupt adults! We definitely plan on returning for more classes in the future!

My son has been a student of Sensei Garzillo at Abington TSMMA for 10 years. He has learned so much more than self-defense and martial arts. He has learned confidence, discipline, self-discipline, accountability, and responsibility. Sensei Garzillo is a great instructor who meets each student “where they are” so students can excel.

Danielle G.

From the moment I started training with Tiger Schulmann Abington it has been a joy. I gained greater skill and confidence in the areas of both kickboxing and strength training. I have also been encouraged by every instructor as I move up the belt system. Tiger Schulmann Abington has been an all around positive experience for me with a lot of positive people rooting each other on!! The Best!!

Denisha W.

We appreciate the wonderful teachers and staff who go out of their way to create an encouraging community. Sensei Garzillo and Joshu Cropper have become role models for our son, and my husband and I were also inspired to start training ourselves, which has been great!

Welcome to Tiger Schulmann’s, Freehold, NJ

Tiger Schulmann’s Freehold has helped members of all ages build full-body fitness, develop a lasting community, and inspire positive change inside and out. Located on Route 9 in Freehold, New Jersey, Tiger Schulmann’s Freehold is building a community through kickboxing, jiu jitsu and martial arts.

At Freehold, our members learn more than how to punch and kick, they develop total mind-body fitness. Our proven curriculum, developed by Master Tiger Schulmann over 36 years ago, instills valuable life skills — focus, self-discipline and a non-quitting spirit — that empower members to take on new opportunities with confidence. Unlike other gyms, you’re not in it alone. “We are all in this together”, says Head Instructor Julianno Varricchio. “And we’re here to help you grow, both on the mat and in life.” 

KIDS MARTIAL ARTS

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.

ADULT KICKBOXING

The Toughest Workout You’ll Ever Love

Fitness. Fun. Real self-defense techniques. Tiger Schulmann’s kickboxing classes are not your typical workout. You’ll burn up to 1,000 calories a class and leave with a strength and confidence that extends far beyond the class. Get in the best shape of your life — inside and out.

Meet Our Head Instructor

Head Instructor Julianno Varricchio

“I tell students all the time, don’t worry about messing up. It is never about being perfect, no one is perfect. The goal is to recognize when you mess up and always strive to be a little better each time. As long as you learn from your mistakes, you are going to get better. Just keep showing up. We are in this together.”

Head Instructor Varricchio was only eight years old when he started training at Tiger Schulmann’s. Initially encouraged by his mother to join, he knew after his first class that he wanted to become an instructor and have his own school. “Some kids want to be firefighters, some kids want to be police officers, I wanted to be an instructor after one class. I felt like I was the absolute strongest person in the room after that class. It was simple stuff looking back, but I left feeling like I was six feet tall even though I was like the smallest guy in the room.” 

 

Head Instructor Varricchio loves competing, he’s 11-0 in amateur competition in both kickboxing and MMA, but helping people through martial arts is his passion. “For me to learn martial arts and attain the level of proficiency that I have, I know anyone can do it if they really try.” Having experience as a student at every level from a child to an adult, Head Instructor Varricchio can relate to his students. He understands what their goals are and potentially what is holding them back. “Most of the time, the biggest thing holding someone back, both for kids and adults, is confidence. But, with consistent training, the confidence in yourself will grow both on and off the mat.”
