Top-notch operation and highly recommended for anyone in the area looking to start their kid(s) in martial arts. Sensei Chris is extremely professional and the other teachers are 100% committed and great. My kids thoroughly enjoyed their time there.

My son has been at Tiger Schulman Glendale location for two years. He loved the instructors, Mike and Cesar. Staffs are very friendly and they keep the place very clean. He always enjoyed going to class! Highly recommend it!

Jenny C.

It’s a quality training facility that is very welcoming to anyone at any level of their fitness and training. I was immediately hooked by the professionalism and patience of each instructor. I’m in the Navy and if I tell you that the training rocks.. Trust me on that.. come get your fitness on and your self defense up to par… Team Glendale Tiger Schulmann’s for real!!

Damien T.

I’ve been training at this school for several years now and it’s great! The sensei’s and instructors are inspiring and helpful. They are always there to push you to be and do your best. I have made some great friends here and it is always a blast and one of the best parts of my week walking on to that mat! It’s like a second family. If tiger Schumann’s is something you were considering trying out, I say go for it! Signing up was one of my best decisions.

Victoria H.

I had trained here once, as I usually attend another tiger Schulmann’s location. They are very welcoming and have an array of talented students that help others who may be struggling with a technique. Parking is readily available in a parking lot so that you don’t have to worry about being ticketed while you are there. Best of all is that there are two dedicated black belts teaching here. I recommend this location to those who live near.

Angela P.

The number of times I’ve been to TSMA Glendale, I’ve been welcomed with open arms. They show interest in all of your health goals, additionally, they keep you motivated to do more. it’s nothing like a regular gym, everyone treats you like their own. I admire the energy from the staff as well as the students. I would definitely recommend this location to everyone.

Victoria K.

Excellent, top-tier instruction from 2 multi-stripe black-belt sensei and an incredible, energetic crop of up-and-coming instructors make this school one of the best. You can expect a large mat, well-maintained equipment, and two large locker rooms for men and women. It’s also clean enough to eat off of the floor. 10/10

Roger K.

Very Professional, in these days of cautions, I feel super safe taking my daughter there. They constantly clean & disinfectant the floor after each class, kids are required to wear their masks at all times & they do. Extremely happy with this Tiger Schulmann’s location.

Jania M.

The staff is amazing with kids. Very patient and makes everyone feel welcome and included. It’s a great community to be a part of.

Kim S.

The instructors are great with my 5-year-old and she looks forward to class! Their COVID precautions make me feel comfortable bringing my child to classes and I would suggest them to anyone whose child wants to do Martial arts.

Sharon B.

Sensei Iavarone is the heart of the school. He and his team have grown the school and are always willing to teach students (of all ages) newer skills. Sensei Lopez is a great addition, showing leadership, instilling confidence, and, for good measure, keeping things light enough to be fun but serious enough to be worthwhile! It warms my heart to see families bring their kids to learn self-defense and confidence, which they can apply anywhere else.

I. Z.

Great place for kids and adults. My son has been training in Glendale for 3 yrs now, my husband joined last year and we just signed up our daughter. Friendly and supportive environment.
Thank you sensei Ivarone, Sensei Lopez, Mike, Cesar, and all the staff for all you do!

Magdalena R.

My son has been at this location for 3 years and it has been the best investment I’ve made for my son. He’s built so much confidence. The staff is AMAZING. They work with you and their priority is always the safety and enjoyment of the children. Can’t wait for my daughter to start with little cubs soon.

Dennise B.

The staff is professional, dedicated and always there to help. From Day 1, I felt comfortable and accepted to the community. My children built self-confidence and structure. The Sensei’s are highly knowledgeable and motivating. School is always clean and maintained!

Piera B.

I have two boys 6 and 8. Both are taking classes 2 times a week in the Glendale location. They always pay close attention to each student. During the Pandemic, they started doing zoom classes for everyone. Kids were very happy to see their Sensei and have some normalcy in their life. Also, now they have the option for in-class or online classes.

Nazia I.

Great cardio kickboxing workout program. Sensei Chris will point out what techniques need work. He can definitely motivate you when you’re feeling tired. Try one class and you will find yourself wanting more.

I am happy with the amount of instructors and high-level students that teach and point out mistakes as well as pushing students to do their best through positive feedback. I am very happy with my choice of school.

I enjoy training at Tiger Schulman. Classes are well-organized and taught efficiently. The atmosphere is supportive and encouraging, while letting us know that there is always a higher level we can reach in our development. No matter how much I struggle with certain exercises that are part of the training, I always appreciate the chance to push myself beyond my barriers-physical and mental.

Whitney H.

This place feels like home and everyone is one big family. I used to get therapy because I’ve been through a lot in my life. The day I started here garden city tiger Shulmann’s it has completely changed my life and I stopped needing therapy. I would never stop going here no matter what because it’s amazing as well as the instructors. They encourage you and push you to be better within yourself. I can write a book about being a part of this community.

Tiara S.

Our son has been with the Tiger Schumann family since he was in second grade and now he is off to college and still continues to train. Sensei Domingo and his staff are wonderful! They encourage their students to try their best while continuing to help them build confidence in themselves. Under the leadership of Sensei Domingo, our son earned his 1st-degree black belt and is proud to be a part of the team. It’s a great place to grow and build character. We are thankful for our Tiger Schumann family.

Lorainn T.

I’ve been training here for nearly a decade, and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made. I came here for the health benefits, and learning self-defense skills was the extra incentive. The people I’ve met here have helped me become a better martial arts student and a better person.

Anthony C.

Tiger Schulmann’s is not only an incredible workout, it also teaches valuable self-defense skills. Great for both kids and adults and has programs for every skill level. Definitely recommend!!!

Tiger Schulman Garden City is the best martial arts place, my son has been there a little over 3 years and has gained muscle and confidence. Sensai’s that teach the classes are great with the kids!

This school is absolutely AMAZING!!!! From the Sensei to the instructors to the students. Everyone is in position to help you achieve whatever goal you set forth and that goal becomes their goal. So positive, so inspirational. It truly is an extended family atmosphere there.

Jonas is great with the children. My son really admires him. My son has gained so much self esteem and confidence. We are so glad to be a part of Tiger Schulmann of Garden City !

Robyn B.

The senseis are friendly and work well with the kids by encouraging them and teaching them to never give up even if it seems hard. I would definitely recommend this school.

Marie E.

My daughter is 4 and we started Shulmann’s when she was 3. She was being pushed around by another girl in school and had no self-esteem. The sempai for the 3-4-year-olds is amazing. In just a few months I’m seeing a huge difference in our daughter. She’s braver, is engaging more with classmates, and is more outgoing. She loves Saturdays and looks forward to her class every week. She has so much fun, has gained strength, balance, and esteem. What else could you want for your kid!!??

Welcome to Tiger Schulmann’s, Glendale in Queens, NY

Tiger Schulmann’s Glendale helps members of all ages and abilities build community, confidence, and full-body fitness through martial arts and kickboxing.
Under the expert leadership of Head Instructor Iavarone, students learn more than punch-kick karate. They build complete mind-body health. Our 360-degree approach instills essential life skills — self-discipline, focus, and mental toughness — that empower members at work, at school, at home and beyond. We call it Finding Your Tiger. And unlike other gyms, in Glendale you’re not in it alone. “Our certified instructors apprentice for years to bring you personalized fitness, nutrition, and martial arts coaching that gets results,” says Iavarone. “Off the mat, we’re fun, family-friendly, and very casual. On the mat, we’re fully focused on helping you achieve your goals.”

Kids Who Find Their Tiger Are Forever Changed

Meet Our Head Instructor

Sensei Christopher Iavarone

Sensei Christopher Iavarone, Head Instructor at our Glendale location, was “practically raised on the mat” and always knew he was destined to become a Tiger Schulmann’s instructor. “As a kid, Tiger Schulmann’s became the place I went to feel good about myself and all the physical activity made it easy to lose the excess weight,” he says. “Reaching my first black belt in record time (less than two years) gave me the confidence I lacked and the skills to defend myself. At an early age I learned the power of self discipline and what can be achieved.” Today, he brings over 25 years of teaching experience to help students of all ages realize their full potential.
Iavarone takes great pride in creating a bright, accessible, family-friendly atmosphere where students can get in the best shape of their lives supported by motivational instructors. He ensures that each student receives tailored training from master instructors, explaining that, when it comes to fitness, there is simply “no match for superior instruction, cleanliness and friendliness.” A passionate cook and health advocate, Iavarone also offers nutritional guidance and healthy recipes in his video series, Cooking with Sensei.
Sensei Iavone’s total-body adult kickboxing classes offer endless benefits, including a newly toned, flexible physique and self-defense skills that can be used in everyday life. But, he says, it is the self-discipline instilled by the practice that truly transforms all areas of his students’ lives.
