Welcome to Tiger Schulmann’s, Short Hills, NJ

Conveniently located at 531 Millburn Avenue, Tiger Schulmann’s Short Hills helps members of all ages build fitness, community, and lasting confidence through martial arts and kickboxing

Under the care and guidance of Sensei Rivera, members learn more than punch-kick karate. They develop total mind-body fitness. Our proven curriculum instills essential life skills — mental toughness, focus, and self-discipline — that empower students to take on new opportunities with confidence, at school, at work, and beyond. We call it Finding Your Tiger. “Our members get more than a workout,” says Sensei Rivera. “Here, you get a family to lean on when you’re struggling. You get a group of people that care more about your happiness than weight-loss or competition alone.

Let Sensei Jimmie Rivera set your child on the path to Find Their Tiger. Our curriculum-based approach helps students of all ages realize their full potential.

Meet Our Head Instructor

Sensei Jimmie Rivera

“I loved teaching and giving back to students – the way my instructor did for me.”

 Jimmie Rivera brings more than a decade of professional mixed martial arts training to his role as a Tiger Schulmann’s Sensei. Having begun his martial arts journey at just 8 years old, he realized that the self-discipline he gained from martial arts extended to all aspects of his life.

Today, Jimmie shares the knowledge garnered over a lifetime of practice to help students of all fitness levels unlock their potential. As a fourth-degree black belt under Tiger Schulmann’s, he takes pride in greeting students and welcoming them to high-energy adult fitness classes where they can become the best version of themselves. The end result – learning authentic mixed martial arts techniques while getting in great shape in a fun, friendly atmosphere.

Sensei Rivera is also a professional mixed martial artist in the UFC, once ranked  #8 in the UFC’s Bantamweight Division. He was also featured in the first episode of “The Ultimate Fighter: Team Bisping versus Team Miller”
