See what students at Tiger Schulmann’s Queens - Jackson Heights are saying

One of the best investments I’ve made. Instructors are attentive with all students and there for you when needed. Classes are fun and you definitely break a sweat and learn tons. Facility is super clean, safety is number one and great COVID protocols. Overall, I enjoy the classes (challenging and fun), great location, and all positive vibes.

Jessica R.

Incredibly knowledgeable and hands-on instructors has allowed for a perfect marriage in integrating technique with a high level of fitness with every class offered. Instructors refuse to allow students to slack off, pushing everyone to their limits in-order to achieve success. Facility is maintained immaculately and follows all Covid protocols. Highly recommend the Jackson Heights location.

Steven D.

Joshu and Carlos are very kind and always take the time to answer all our questions and concerns. Thanks to them my daughter got more confident. Thank you!!

Sandra O.

My son trained nearly 10 years, starting at the age of 5, with the assistance of Sempai Jorge. I began training nearly 6 years ago, having the pleasure of receiving Sempai Jorge’s instruction. No one is more deserving of running their own school. His dedication and professionalism are top notch.

Vic D.

Trainers are very professional and friendly. They made me feel very welcome and gave me clear explanations of each exercise during the workout, helping me get better. Also, the gym is very clean, I felt safe and didn’t worry about Covid at all.

Patricia J.

The most comfortable environment non-judge mental. You learn at your own pace.

Ana C.

Absolutely love coming to train here, everyone is so professional and easy to talk to. Place is very sanitized.

Joselin G.

I had been waiting to find a great kickboxing class in the neighborhood and I’ve been so impressed with what I found at this facility. The staff is knowledgable, welcoming and super professional. The classes make you work but are also fun. I run to my next class and will soon be joined by others in my family. I highly recommend it. The atmosphere is exactly what I was looking for and I’m very happy with my decision.

Meet Our Head Instructors

Sensei Nissim Levy at Tiger Schulmann's Bay Ridge

Sensei Nissim Levy

Nissim Levy set off on his martial arts journey at 22 and immediately knew he’d found his career path. Today he brings over 25 years of teaching experience to his role as Owner and Head Instructor of Tiger Schulmann’s Bay Ridge in Brooklyn, NY.
“We don’t just teach martial arts,” he says, “we change lives. Shy, timid kids grow bold and confident. Children who struggle with bullying learn to stand up for themselves. My partner here in Bay Ridge, Joshu Arce, came to us as a chunky kid. He worked his butt off and at 18 became a professional fighter. We bring 110% every day to make transformation like that possible.”

Meet Our Head Instructors

Jorge Rivera

Jorge Rivera began his martial arts journey 15 years ago as a way to get in shape and learn self-defense. He quickly found the results were more than physical. “Training made me calmer and gave me the tools to build stronger relationships.” Soon, he says, “I wanted to help others achieve the same results.” Today he brings a decade of teaching experience to his roles as Owner and Head Instructor of Tiger Schulmann’s Jackson Heights.
As a mentor and coach to young students, Rivera strives to “help kids set a strong foundation of self-discipline that prepares them for future growth.” “We provide teens with an important outlet,” he continues, “that can help them find themselves during tough times.”
Rivera helps adults of all fitness levels get in shape through authentic kickboxing classes, while also providing a fun and rewarding outlet from their everyday lives. “Empowering people with self-defense gives them the tools to change their lives,” he explains. “And, with me, you have an instructor to motivate you every step of the way.”
