This place is great! My son is learning so much from attending. Sensei Leonelli, and the rest of the staff (Dillon, Alex, and Joe just to name a few) are great with the kids. So patient and caring. They also really take an interest in their adult students, to make sure that everyone who trains with them stays on track to obtain their goals.

I’m glad i made the choice of registering my son at this place. In such a short period of time, I see tremendous improvement in my son’s behavior, and he now have something to look foward too. The trainers are amazing, and you can tell they love and enjoy what they do.

They have so much love and positivity filling up this amazing environment. Everyone who works here, attends here, it’s like a big family, a big support system. Sensei and Sempai are both the best of the best. I wouldn’t go anywhere else, and I would recommend everyone bring themselves, and their families here.

Welcome to Tiger Schulmann’s, Smithtown, NY

Tiger Schulmann’s Smithtown provides a safe, family-friendly environment for members of all ages and abilities to find fitness, confidence, and community through kickboxing and martial arts.
In Smithtown, members learn more than punch-kick karate. They build total mind-body fitness. Our 360-degree approach develops essential life skills — focus, self-discipline, and mental toughness— that helps members thrive as leaders at school, at work, at home, and beyond. We call it Finding Your Tiger. And unlike other gyms, you’re not in it alone. “We’re a family,” says Sensei Leonelli, “and we all support and motivate each other to achieve our goals on and off the mat.”

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 J. Leonelli

Sensei James Leonelli began his Tiger Schulmann’s training at 13. Three years later, he began mentoring young students. “I saw the impact I was having,” he says, “and it was awesome to do for others what my instructors had done for me.” Today, he brings nearly two decades of martial arts teaching experience to his role as Tiger Schulmann Smithtown’s Owner and Head Instructor.
Leonelli helps kids Find Their Tiger through hard work, dedication, and a no-quit spirit. “We see children like Lily, small and quiet in stature, become a stronger, more confident version of herself. And teens like Shivansh evolve into strong, outspoken competitors. Doug, one of our adult kickboxing students is in the best shape of his life, mentally and physically, at age 50. Seeing the results of my students’ hard work motivates me to help even more people on their journey.”
