Importance of the Belt Ranking System
Engaging in Martial Arts is a combination of determination, perseverance and commitment. Your level of achievement is referred to as your rank. The rank you have earned is indicated by the color of your belt. The color of the belt you wear with each advancement has special meaning and signifies your experience and progression.
When our founder, Daniel Schulmann was just a young boy, his oldest brother was brutally bullied. This left Danny with a fearful lack of confidence and a feeling of insecurity. It was at this time his father, David Schulmann made a conscious decision that his children would never be victimized by anyone ever again.
He enrolled Danny in martial arts and it did not take long for his instructor, Shigeru Oyama, to realize he had a real prodigy on his hands. When Oyama realized Danny was born in the year of the Tiger and with the boy’s unmatched speed, strength and fearlessness, Danny would forever be referred to as “Tiger” Schulmann. At the age of twelve, Tiger achieved the high honor of black belt.
He began competing in full contact, bare-knuckle knockdown tournaments. In 1979, at the age of seventeen, his instructor informed him that Tiger would be representing the United States in the 2nd World Open Championships in Tokyo, Japan. He then went on to become the North American Full Contact Champion which he would successfully defend for a staggering six years in a row until his retirement from competition.
That same year, Tiger Schulmann’s Martial Arts was born.
Shihan Peter Tirelli began his martial arts journey at age four and today leverages over three decades of teaching experience as Owner and Head Instructor of our Yonkers school. He brings an untamed sense of adventure, discipline, and mental toughness to everything he takes on, from the mountains, where he’s an avid rock climber, to the mat. A seasoned competitor, Tirelli won the Senior Grappling Championships three times, and placed 3rd in the Senior World Championships.
In class, Tirelli pushes members to achieve their best, helping instill Tiger Schulmann’s signature non-quitting spirit. He provides students with the personalized coaching needed to continuously improve their fitness, self-discipline, and drive, improving their lives at home, at work, and at school. “My students give their heart and soul,” he says, “and I give mine right back.” The end result is a newfound level of fitness and confidence that motivates students to achieve more than they ever dreamed possible.
