Both my kids have been going to Tiger Schumann since they were 5 years old. The institution has helped them become disciplined, independent, strong, confident, and brave women. I hope they keep up the good work forever. Thank you!

Smitha N.

Always happy with Shilhan and his teachings! My 3 children have been coming here for 5/7 years. Very happy! Great place to learn MMA.

Matthew R.

This has been the best activity for our son. He has made friends and has become more outgoing with tons of confidence. He also is stronger and more athletic than before. My husband also loves it- especially grappling. Tiger Schulmann’s has become another part of our family and Shihan Simpson is the best!

Melissa B.

I love the Tiger Shulmann’s program and Shihan Simpson and his team here are absolutely amazing. They welcomed is with open arms and listened compassionately to my children when we started. The connection my kids have with the staff has become incredibly important to us. Currently during the pandemic they’re taking it seriously and instituting what I feel like are great precautions. They’re one of the only places I feel safe letting my kids enter and I couldn’t imagine our life without them.

I would highly recommend TSMMA, it’s been a great experience. The instructor is friendly, you feel welcome as soon as you enter the door. My daughter is definitely building her confidence, I know we made the right choice to join TSMMA.

Alejandra M.

I have been with the organization 20 years and counting. Because of my training, my experiences, as a person, I gained skills that enriched every aspect of my life and helped to empower me. I have great people I train with and great instructors. My children all grew up in the organization and have taken skills and empowerment with them as well. I have not regretted the day I began training and as an over 50 years old, I can say I still train to this day.

Lory M.

I have been training at Tiger Schulmann’s Allentown for 6 years. The instructors are very experienced and provide a variety of classes for different skill levels so you can get the most out of your workouts. Training at Tiger Schulmann’s has provided me with more confidence. I lost 60 lbs in the first 8 months of my training and have kept the weight off. I am 42 years old and in the best shape of my life.

Craig S.

It’s a great blend of intense cardio and striking technique paired with challenging encouragement from peers and instructors. The motivation to push ones-self comes easily in this great environment and with this program.

Dave S.

Tiger Schumann’s is a great place if you want your children to learn self-defense and self-discipline. The teachers are very friendly but take action when they need to. It is a great establishment that is well worth it.

Baltazar B.

This is by far the best school around, the teachers are well experienced in their years of training, and teach you not only excellent self-defense but nutrition and other valuable life skills. 100% worth the investment.
