From the first minute, this place has a very welcoming and friendly atmosphere compared to the others that I visited for my son’s training. My son (and now I) feels like a part of a family every time he goes to class. As my son advances the lessons are getting more fun for him (going from kickboxing to jujitsu). Ignore the negative review below. They are all very upfront and clear about signing a 1-year contract (like all other martial arts places). One thing that the senseis instill in the children a “non quitting spirit” which is lacking in today’s kids. The discipline that my son is learning is invaluable and he is not it getting anywhere else besides home. I highly recommend Tiger Shulmann’s to all who are interested.
