The promotion took place following the weekly organizational instructor training class held every Tuesday at the Tiger Schulmann’s HQ in Elmwood Park. Shihan Simpson’s journey to becoming a 7th Degree Black Belt began over 30 years ago, when he began training with Master Tiger Schulmann in 1986. Regarded as the “Definition of Discipline,” Shihan Simpson leads by example and constantly inspires through his martial arts instruction and tremendous physique. In addition to operating the Tiger Schulmann’s Allentown location, Shihan Simpson is the head coach of the TSMMA Pennsylvania Competition Team and one of the few hand selected instructors chosen by Master Tiger Schulmann to serve on a panel of judges for the Black Belt Tests. Congratulations to Shihan James Simpson on his promotion!
