Love training at Tiger Schulmann. The staff is hands-on and they are always there to critique and help you improve and grow as a martial artist. It is also a great workout, I have gained strength and confidence and accomplished things I never thought I would be able to.

My son and daughter have been attending Tiger Schulmann in Seaford for several years and it has been amazing for both of them. Besides the physical benefits, their self-confidence has increased and they have made lifelong friends. I cannot recommend it enough!

Jamie G.

I highly recommend Tiger Schulmann’s of Seaford. Sensei George, Sempai Natasha & Joshu Zahir have been great working my 7yr old son. They provide a great motivational learning environment and take a personal interest in each student. My son loves attending class.

Richard P.

This place is absolutely amazing and the owner Michael Fischetti is just as amazing as the environment. He is so caring and attentive to the kids and has truly helped my daughter with her focus and concentration. I can’t wait to send my other children and am even considering joining the adult program as well. Keep it up Michael

Kristen D.

Highly recommend this place if you want to train or just want to get a good workout they have an amazing staff and offer so much help. They made me feel right at home and pushed me to better myself!

Sensei Fischetti is a great Instructor who is courteous and engaging. You can see that he pours the passion he has for Martial Arts into each and every class that he teaches, children and adults alike. A true professional. If you enrolled yourself or your children in the program, you will not be disappointed! You will leave with life lessons, get a great workout, and learn self-defense as well. I can’t wait for my next class!

Danielle G.

Mike Fischetti is constantly mixing it up, challenging me. He expects you to do your best. You come in, give it all, and he reciprocates. The best!

Jacqueline K.

In my experience, I’ve never felt more welcomed and humbled by a sensei of mixed martial arts. The professional prowess and competence of Michael Fischetti and his teachings truly exemplify that of a leader and a dignified mentor. You will not regret your decision to train under such exceptional tutelage!

Michael S.

Mike Fischetti and his staff are wonderful. You can tell Mike really cares about the students. His pep talks are really motivating. I am so happy my daughter is attending the Seaford school. I highly recommend the program.

Maria G.

My son has been attending for only a few months now and the growth I have been able to witness is unbelievable. The class is very structured and my son is so excited to go to every class. Sensei Mike is an amazing instructor and always makes class motivating and gives constructive feedback. After experiencing other martial arts programs prior, I can say that nothing else even compares to the program here at Tigers.

Danielle L.

My nephew has been going to Tiger Schulmann’s for the past few years and he has really grown in many ways.
The work his Sensei does with him is always firm and caring. I would recommend Tiger Schulmann’s in Seaford if ever asked.

Janet C. L.

One of the BEST kids martial arts instructors I’ve ever met. I’ve been in martial arts all my life – not only the instruction – but the life lessons are amazing. This was a great choice …. and i would personally recommend them for any parent and any child.

Welcome to Tiger Schulmann’s, Merrick, NY

Led by Owner and Head Sensei Jobin George, Tiger Schulmann’s Merrick provides a fun, family-oriented environment for members of all ages to build fitness, friendship, confidence, and community through martial arts and kickboxing.

Our curriculum-based approach teaches more than punch-kick karate technique. We help members develop the skills — mental toughness, focus, self-discipline — to thrive on and off the mat. It’s a 360-degree approach to mental and physical fitness that we call Finding Your Tiger. And unlike most gyms, here you’re not in it alone. “We teach safe and effective techniques that allow you to progress safely at your own pace,” says Sensei George. “Our instructors and members are one big family. We’re here to cheer on each win and push you forward every step of the way.”

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

Sensei Jobin George

Tiger Schulmann’s Merrick Owner and Head Sensei Jobin George began his martial arts journey at age 10. “I was shy, 40 pounds overweight, and I got bullied,” he says. “Learning martial arts at Tiger Schulmann’s got me in shape and taught me how to overcome those tough situations.” George earned his black belt at 12 and today brings over 15 years of teaching experience to his role as Head Instructor. “I have a degree in childhood education and have taught elementary school, so I understand the formal methods to reach kids. That said, every child is different, so we tap into what works for each student.”

George provides individualized support to his adult students as well, helping members ladder up through new martial arts techniques at their own pace. “We start you off slow, and teach you the technique so you can progress safely,” he explains. “No one is judged. It’s not a competition. But at every step, you’ll see the possibilities of what you can achieve. And it’s more than physical fitness. It’s mental well-being and peace of mind.”
