Some of the kids in my 10 year old sons classes are training fighters looking to be a great martial artist... Some of the kids have focus issues in need of structure, my son is a timid type, shy, and small for his age, and the last four years of training has been invaluable. He is very focused with everything he does now even with baseball and school and I attribute that to his training here. Grappling classes make him stronger and kickboxing makes him faster, and his sparring classes give him that real world experience so he can protect himself and this is a gift I know he will carry on his entire life. Sensei Zapfel has always stopped to work with him when he needed it and always pushed him beyond his abilities. He's still not a competition fighter, but I'm happy he still attends class and tries his best.

As for me, I have been training for four years as well and probably in the best shape of my life since I started. The other adults training with me are always pushing me to my limit and Sensei Zapfel is right there making sure I'm pushing back. As a 38 year old adult, it is an awesome feeling to be grappling and kickboxing with other adults and even training for competition. The tiger Schulmann's own exclusive competition is a safe and exciting way to put my abilities to the test and I think every adult should break away from their repetitive routine even the boring gym and try this out for a few weeks... The workout is insane and the nutritional advise and guidance is a huge help to getting and staying healthy. I have great respect for my fellow students that attend classes daily and push their limits with me.

"LOOK WHAT THEY DONE DID LOL !!!!" Where do I go to file a complaint against Tiger Schulmann's MMA Wayne ? In 4 Months I went from 220 pounds to 185 and still dropping. My pants size went from a 40 inch waist to a 34 and they starting to feel loose !!!! ARRRRR time for new clothes again !!!!!!!!
All kidding aside I would like to personally thank Sensei Zapfel and Joshu Zapfel in helping me kick start my journey to a better healthier life style . After seeing how greatly my son has developed physically and mentally since joining TSMMA WAYNE my wife and I decided to join the 90-day Challenge to get in shape and lose some weight. She lost 23 pounds Her goal was 15 and I lost 30 my goal was 20. This is not a diet but a life style change . In fact I found myself eating more meals during the course of the day . How can this be you may ask? Give them a visit tell them what you would like to accomplish and they will not only help you reach your goal but exceed them.
My excuse was always I have no time too busy at work (Which I still am nothing has changed but my pant size lol ) I have no time too busy working on the house too busy with my son excuse excuse excuse .
I lost 30 pounds in 90 days only going two times a week . If I can do it
so can you. Once again Thank you Sensei Zapfel and Joshu Zapfel for helping our family become healthier stronger. Now I have to work longer hours cause the wife needs new clothes and so do I !!!! OSU !!!!

The Tiger Schulmann's MMA School of Wayne, NJ and Sensei have been such a positive influence on my son. For the past 4 years I have watched him develop from a shy toddler into a confident young man. The training program encourages self-discipline, non-quitting spirit and integrity. I believe learning these important skills help him in every aspect of life ie., school, home life, sports and many other areas. I highly recommend this program for both boys and girls.

After watching my kids take part here a few times, they and the staff convinced me to take a class. It was a lot to take in and I was wiped out after the last round (alright, the third round) but I realized there and then that this was for me. It's interval training with strength training and stretching, at least on paper. In practice, what's so unique is the focus is on honing a series of basic techniques and then learning how to piece them together.

You are so focused on the nuances of the steps that make up the technique that you fail to realize just how much work you're doing. It's a workout with a difference...you don't even know you're working out until you're gasping for breath at the end of the 8th round, after which there are two rounds of strength training, 3 minutes each. It's incredible just how long 3 minutes can feel.

The staff are friendly and focused. Yes, it's on the expensive side, especially if you don't show up for class (it's a fixed price per month). The secret, then, is to SHOW UP FOR CLASS. Other than a business trip or being sick, I haven't missed any classes...can't say that happened with my gym 'schedule'.

I've lost quite a bit of weight (249lbs, dropped to 219lbs and counting), have gained a ton of energy, focus and even a gain in confidence, not so much because of a change in appearance, but knowing that I have taken on a new challenge that I never thought would be for me and am apparently not completely sucking. My diet has also changed radically, largely because I don't want to undo all of the hard work that I'm doing during class. The '90 day challenge' is held once a year and has a sharp focus on nutrition and is a great part of the program.

The staff are all very supportive and friendly. They're also incredibly skilled. I've seen Sensei demonstrate jabs, crosses, hooks, round kicks, front kicks and knees for 8 months now, and I still find something to learn about each of them during every class. It never gets old because you can always get faster, stronger and better with each technique. Just when you think you've got the hang of it, you realize that executing them as a combination is a whole different animal.

The students are very supportive, too. It's not uncommon to get a quick tip from a more experienced partner while you're on the bag.

Overall, it's a unique and powerful experience. In my case, it's been nothing short of life changing. Commit to it and you'll see. I gotta run, class starts in half an hour!

Tiger Schulmann's in Wayne NJ is one of the best martial arts schools in the area, period. My son has been training with Sensei Zapfel and his team since 2013 and is currently a red belt. As a disclaimer, I am not associated with the TSK organization in any form other than my son being a student. I think it's important to also note that I, myself, was active in the martial arts as a kid and as a young adult, so my observations will be based on my personal experience. With that said, below are some of the key reasons I feel TSMMA Wayne is a top quality school:

Grit: I think more anything else, the kids that train at TSMMA Wayne develop a sense of no-quit attitude. An attitude that transcends to other endeavors.

Moral Compass: When a kids is confident, they don't feel the need to bow to peer pressure. They have a better sense of what is right and what is wrong. I see this in the kids and particularly in the higher ranking belts.

Instruction: One of the most amazing things that I see on a daily basis is how Sensei Zapfel and his team has the ability to push the kids beyond their comfort zones and challenge them to get to the next level without barking orders like a drill instructor. It's a difficult task to accomplish day in and day out. Additionally, his technical breakdown of a move or combination, be it striking or grappling, is presented in a digestible format so the kids get a quicker understanding of the movement.

Cost: I also want to address the cost issue raised by some reviewers. In my opinion, it's a small price to pay for a future investment in my child's ability to tackle any challenge that life may throw at him. Yes, you can choose other sports to do this, but for me, with my background, I choose the martial arts.

I think you should check them out and see for yourself.

I started training with TSMMA Wayne in August 2013. After taking my first complimentary class I knew I was hooked. Before training at TSMMA Wayne, I had never played sports, was not very athletic, struggled with my weight, and had endless gym memberships that I never used. Now 2.5 years later I have competed in two tournaments through Tiger Schulmann's, learned about proper nutrition with the help of Sensei Zapefel and Joshu Zapfel, and train 4-5 times a week. I cannot imagine what my life was like before I found TSMMA Wayne. Sensei Zapfel and Joshu Zapfel have motivated me to be the best version of myself. I am so thankful for their consistent encouraging energy and attitudes. They are there to help their students succeed! I am excited to see what my martial arts future holds with Tiger Schulmmann's.

I have been a student at TSMMA Wayne for going on twelve years. You will not find a better instructor and motivator than Sensei Zapfel. From Children to advanced level adults Sensei Zapfel has the unique ability to address each students needs and address them in an individual way even though you are in a group setting. Regardless of whether you are just looking to get in shape, learn self-defense, or compete
you will find your experience at TSMMA Wayne rewarding and fulfilling.
