TSMMA Princeton Student Gets In Shape
The decision to join Tiger Schulmann’s MMA was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Before Tiger Schulmann’s Princeton I used to think I was pretty fit because I would lift weights, do pull ups, and jog for about 40 minutes at least 3 times a week. I decided to join Tiger Schulmann’s because I wanted to learn martial arts, a sense of self discipline, and I always admired the fire in the eyes of martial artist. They always looked calm and collective to me even when they are under stress or in a chaotic environment.
After joining Tiger Schulmann’s I realized what having real fitness really meant. I felt like dying after my first class which was a huge eye opener for me. I considered myself to be in shape but the class showed me that my fitness level was not where I obviously thought it was. The intensity of the first class made me second guess myself but thanks to Joshu Billings I was given the confidence to push harder because he made it clear that with consistency and determination I would be able to achieve anything I wanted. His words were more than true because after my first couple of classes I started to feel like I was running on red bull most of the time. I had unusual bursts of energy out of nowhere especially when I woke up in the morning after a hard night of training. I started to see definition in my muscles that I never knew existed. I came into Tiger Schulmann’s not expecting to lose weight but to my surprise I had lost about 15 pounds only in a couple of months.
Now that I have experienced the glory inside of training at TSMMA Princeton, I hope to someday compete in amateur Mixed Martial Arts fights after a couple of years of training.

For the last year Isaac “Venom” G. has been one of my most dedicated students. He continues to grow exponentially, both with his physical conditioning but also in his martial arts knowledge. He strives to learn more about MMA, every second he spends in class he is training as hard as he can. That is what true success is, when faced with a challenge you confront it and you find a way to overcome that challenge. It’s not about how you start or how good you are when you start. It’s about how hard you’re willing to work to make yourself that much better.
