Hi,

Can anyone tell me ANYTHING about Tiger Shulman's karate?

WHAT ARE THE PRICES for adult training ?!!!

How is the training?
Anything to "look out for"?
Pros & cons?
Is this place a good school?
Is this place just a money-maker?

Help!!

I just want to hear from REAL people - their experience with this place. And if anyone would recommend it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks - Brad

bradjacob,
It is virtually impossible for someone on this thread to tell you is a particular dojo is good for you or not. It depends on what you are looking to get out of training. Withthat being said, there is a huge ditinction between Tiger Schulmann the man and Tiger Schulman the dojo. Mr. Schulmann is/was a fantastic karate-ka with a graet tournemant record. I beleive he trained directly with Mas Oyama of Kyokushin. I remember reading that he was undefeated (cannot verify that!). If you have an opportunity to train with him or any students that trained directly from him, great. Most of his schools, however, seemed to be more geared to the business of dojos than to the art itself. Thye seem to pop up in every strip mall I see right next to the Starbucks and McDonalds. A few friends of mine went in to look at one of them. The BB at the front desk could not describe what style of Karate they did nor could he explain where the art came from. He only was interested in discussing payment plans and contracts. Hpefully this info helps you make an educated decision.

Did you visit any of his Dojo's yet? Do a search, we have discussed TSK many times.

Yes I did - I only found One(1) thread here on this forum. Can you send me the links to other threads when this was discussed many times?

Rookie is right. As a martial artist, himself, Tiger Schulman is quite good. I have seen footage of him on the American Masters of Martial Arts DVD and was very impressed with him in knockdown competition. His schools, however, get mixed reviews. I have heard tales of exorbitant prices and unreasonable contracts. I have also heard, like someone in an earlier response mentioned, that many of the instructors lack depth and that the chain is little more than a belt factory.

Having said that, I have also seen a few of his students compete on TV with some success, and I watched a small portion (about 15 minutes) of a kids class at my local strip mall in Danbury, CT, the other day. (My wife was shopping elsewhere and I had nothing better to do.) I was actually pleased with what I saw...kids drilling functional striking techniques and takedowns.

Perhaps if there is a problem with the Tiger Schulman studios, it is the problem that many franchises suffer from - quality control. My best advice would be to visit the school, observe several classes, take a trial class, and read over the contract with a fine tooth comb. If you like what you see, go for it.

(I must say, the TSK dojos are always very pretty.)

Good luck,

David

I am a student a a Tiger Schulmann's studio. I've found the quaality of teaching to be excellent. However, I feel the term "karate" in the title to be a misnomer. It is a mixed martial arts school. They do submission grappling, kickboxing, and close range defense. The school has produced great fighters (Shennen Maceo, Laura D'Auguste, etc.), which shows that they can't be that bad. I don't think it's the McDojo everyone says it is.

However...

From a business perspective it's a little ridiculous. They make you pay by class, and the better you get, the more classes you need to take. People pay thousands of dollars a year. I think it's pretty expensive.

I believe if you pay by the class the time you get your BB you would have spent well over $10,000.00 if I'm wrong please correct me.
