“Student Uses Training at Tiger Schulmann’s to Fight Back Against MS”

By Current News No Comments

For as long as I can remember I have always had an uphill battle with weight.  Even as a child I struggled with it.  When I started playing sports it became less of an issue. After college I focused more attention on my field of study and the battle with weight began again.  I attempted several weight loss programs, and learned that the only way for me to lose weight and keep it off is to never stop exercising.  I was okay with using a stationary bike, free weights as well as running, but I was bored with all of it.  I heard yoga was great exercise and good for the mind as well, but like the rest, I couldn’t focus.  My mind is always going, and trying to meditate through yoga was laughable to me.  One night, I saw a commercial for Tiger Schulmann’s.  I must have seen it about thirty times, and realized that mixed martial arts would be a good way to work out without getting bored.

I joined Tiger Schulmann Paramus in February 2011.  I loved the atmosphere, the people, the discipline and especially the workouts. It was such a great place that less than a month after joining, I started going to class six days per week.  Sensei Querido is an amazing instructor and through his guidance and the help of others at the school I was getting better.  The intensity allowed me to clear my mind in more ways than yoga ever could.  If I didn’t focus I couldn’t get through the workout.  It was the first time that at the end of exercising my mind was calm.  I didn’t come to Tiger Schulmann to make friends, but going six days a week and seeing the same people you start to truly care for them.  Now some of my closest friends are from TSMMA and my life wouldn’t be the same without them, especially during my recent rough patch…

In April it appeared I was having seasonal allergy issues.  That’s common for me so I didn’t think much of it, but it wouldn’t go away.  I went to the doctor for what felt like a strange ear infection.  This wasn’t the case either, so many medical tests followed.  I missed my first class for an MRI of my brain, and then I missed a week for a spinal tap.  I was not going to let a spinal tap keep me from training.  I ended up having to go for another MRI of the cervical spine.  These tests all confirmed that I had Multiple Sclerosis.  A simple eye twitch and loss of hearing, and all of a sudden I was diagnosed with a chronic disease.

MS is one of those diseases that is different for everyone.  There is no cure.  My response to the situation has been this:  It is what it is and I will do everything in my power to keep it at bay.  This is not going to run my life or become who I am.  After a little research I found out that being in great shape can help keep MS in check.  I knew I was on the right track at Tiger Schulmann’s.  Although it is recommended for MS patients not do challenging workouts (overheating can cause symptoms until the body cools), intense is the only way I know how to exercise.  Soon I added a home fitness program in addition to training at Tiger Schulmann’s six days per week.  With the help of these two amazing programs, I am on the fast track to the best shape I can be in.

Tiger Schulmann’s has led me to a healthier life style.  It has taught me many things especially how to push my mind and body to its limits, and when there:  Push harder.  This disease will not define me but will keep me motivated to train the hardest I can. And when my hardest isn’t good enough, I know Sensei Querido and Joshu Murray will be the ones to push me that much harder.

It’s not a cliché that Tiger Schulmann is a family.  Even when someone doesn’t know my situation, they are still there to try and help me. When I first started my medication the support I got from this school was amazing.  From trying to help me figure out how to administer self injections, and dealing with the medication’s side effects (like insatiable hunger), or simply asking how it was going.  These students and instructors care and that is what family is all about.

Until this moment, I have not told many friends about my diagnosis.  If I don’t tell you what I have then you will never know that there is anything wrong with me.  I don’t want sympathy because there are people out there far worse off than me.  I am doing everything I possibly can to keep it at bay.  MS is not something you can attack head on.  It’s a disease that you have to fight from every angle you can to get a grip on it.  If holding out your hand out for help is the only option, then I will gladly do that. When I can’t do something by myself, I know that I have the Paramus school to help me.  Whether the students that I train with know about my story or not, they are motivating me to keep coming everyday and train with them.  That is the reason Tiger Schulmann’s has impacted and changed my life.

Osu!

“It’s Hard to Beat a Person Who Never Gives Up.”

By Current News No Comments

“It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up.” – Babe Ruth

My grandson, Kyle, is a student of Tiger Schulmann’s Mixed Martial Arts. The skills Kyle has learned are manifold. He is more self-controlled, self-disciplined, patient, and attentive. He has learned to take orders and criticism. One big step for Kyle is that he works in a group setting and has contact with other students in the class of various backgrounds and personalities. Perhaps this does not sound extraordinary, except that Kyle is autistic.

Autistic traits are vastly different in each afflicted person. No eye contact, impaired social interactions, lack of communication, low attention span, body rocking, compulsive behavior, high stress levels, and poor body tone are some of them. Kyle has had most of these.

Kyle realizes he is different, and has made tremendous gains in his life at home and in school However, he wanted more. Kyle is an 18 year old young man “who never gives up.” Kyle asked if he could take karate and made the decision that Tiger Schulmann’s was the place he wanted to go for his martial arts training. He certainly picked the perfect setting.

Sensei sees each student as unique and sometimes must be harder on some than others. The tough problem is not in identifying winners: it is in making winners out of ordinary people. Kyle with all his special needs has without a doubt become triumphant.

Throughout the professional leadership of Sensei Peter Tirelli, Joshu Nicole Kumar, and Sempai Joel Bekker, Kyle has improved his social skills, his strength, overcame fear of communicating with other people and has even had the opportunity to lead the class. Kyle takes great pride in his accomplishments. He is learning leadership skills and is setting goals for himself. His self-esteem has skyrocketed. Kyle has gained a sense of pride. For a young adult with autistic disorder, these accomplishments are considered nearly impossible tasks.

The teaching, understanding, and praise Kyle receives at Tiger Schulmann’s from not only Sensei, but the entire class, has shown that it is possible to accomplish the nearly impossible.

I read that a Sensei does not ask for rewards. A Sensei’s reward is when his students improve and excel. Sensei Tirelli’s skill in teaching Kyle is something for which I will be forever grateful. I started with a quote from Babe Ruth because it reminds me of my grandson. I will end with a quote from Henry Brook Adams because it reminds me of what Kyle has been awarded at Tiger Schulmann’s by all of those involved.

“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.”

With Heartfelt Gratitude,

Marilyn
