  • 3. About Master Daniel Tiger Schulmann As a young man, after years of rigorous training and winning over 100 competitions, Daniel Tiger Schul- mann set his sights on the ultimate: full contact bare knuckle competition. This type of competition was widely known to be the most brutal and challenging of all, testing the true effectiveness of each competitors martial arts skills. Drawing upon his exceptional technique, speed, and non-quitting spirit, Tiger Schulmann reigned as the un- defeated North American knockdown champion for six consecutive years. Tiger Schulmann could imagine no greater pursuit than to give back to others what the martial arts had given him, so he devoted his life to developing what has become the most comprehen- sive and effective style known today. Drawn by his outstanding reputation and high standards, people come to train in his schools year after year. Today, those numbers have grown to many thousands, including students who have gone on to become champions themselves.
  • 4. The Growth of TSMMA At the age of 14, Daniel Schulmann started his first school in a hotel conference room in Quaker- town with classes costing $2.00. Schulmann did not like bullies, so he started teaching kids to be more confident in order to avoid being bullied or becoming a victim. To attract more attention and gain new students, Schulmann passed around flyers for his class at football games. Schulmann was still competing back in those days, so the students that he taught were also his training partners. After going through some forms and exercises with his students, he would begin to spar all 20 people that were in his class. It wasnt until Schulmann opened his third school in Nyack, New York that he began to set a standard to his operating procedures. Schulmann followed a 50/50 partnership deal for his schools back then, and still does today. He believes that if the schools were owned by the instructors, they would treat it and care for it as if it were their own. Schulmann says, We build our schools by ourselves. We get the space, sheetrock it, paint it, install our own carpeting and mats, and go find a cheap sign company. Eight thousand dollars opened that school. We were equal partners, as I was with my Quakertown partner. Some of those little kids I taught back in Spring Valley went to college and are now instructors and owners of their own schools, says Schulmann, To grow an organization, loyalty is very important. I have instructors that have been with me for 15 and even 20-plus years. On top of his 50/50 partnership with his schools, Schulmann makes sure that his instructors train with him first at HQ. This allows him to personally get to know them as well as see how good they really are at martial arts. His instructors will then continue to train with him every Tuesday, as well as one more additional day of mandatory training.
  • 5. Schulmann says, I go into business with real martial artists - good, ethical people who must deal well with children and adults, and who are going to care about their students. This all began in the mid-1980s, but as of today, there are 50 Tiger Schulmann schools located in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Florida. Schulmann also owns one of the largest martial arts schools in the world with a 20,000 square feet dojo located in Manhattan. I never set out to have 50 schools. I dont know anyone who can really plan on things like that happening. If the only idea in mind is to become a millionaire, it never works, because you dont enjoy what youre doing. I just work every day because I enjoy it and try to do it as smart as I can, and I like being successful.
