For the past 25 years, Tiger Schulmann’s has been offering kickboxing, close-range self defense, sparring and grappling classes to the community in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. With students ranging in age from 4-60, programs are available for those at the beginner level all the way to black belts.
Robert Villafane Jr., who has been practicing martial arts for 30 years, leads Tiger Schulmann’s in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Just like all of our other martial arts school owners, Robert has made it a priority to acquire the best instructors in the business and works hard to engage with the local community.
For example, this location donates to local schools and other organizations, hosts free Bully Shield programs to schools and offers free Child Safe programs for preschool and elementary aged students. In fact, one of Robert’s most memorable experiences as a Tiger Schulmann’s owner involves a child safety fair that took place about 15 years ago.
“I brought together the local police, fire department and EMS to increase awareness of the safety personnel in the community. We had over 100 students participating in martial arts demonstrations outside of the school, the police gave a drug and alcohol resistance program, and we had a special visit from the Medivac helicopter, which landed right outside our school so students could see inside,” explains Robert.
So what’s next?
This August, our Bethlehem location will be holding an annual school picnic for both students and parents. Additionally, a Halloween party will be held in late October.
