Tiger Schulmann, was the American Knockdown Karate Champion for 6 consecutive years and remained undefeated in over 100 competitions. Schulmann, who is the founder of the largest martial arts chain in the United States, is to be inducted into the New Jersey Martial Arts Hall of Fame on December 6, 2013 in Secaucus, New Jersey.

Master Daniel "Tiger" Schulmann

Beginning with winning the lightweight division at the 1979 North American Mas Oyama Full-Contact Karate Championships, Tiger annually re-won this same trophy again and again for the next 6 years in a row. He retired undefeated.

Tiger Schulmann began training in karate at the age of 9 after his older brother suffered a severe bullying incident. Though he was initially reluctant to accept a child of that age in his school, Daniel’s instructor quickly found him to be a child prodigy of the martial arts. After a few months, the instructor named him, “Tiger,” due to his speed, focus, power and heart.

Because he was too strong for opponents his age, Tiger Schulmann was placed in competitions against the adult divisions, where he remained undefeated in over 100 fights during his competitive career. To this day, he still holds the record for most consecutive years in holding the title of American Knockdown Karate Champion for 6 years in a row.

In 1982, Schulmann opened his first school, and in 1984 opened the first location which would turn into the blockbusting franchise which has become known as, “Tiger Schulmann’s Mixed Martial Arts.” The franchise will be celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2014 with 47 locations and additional openings planned throughout the year.

Adding to his credits as an undefeated martial arts champion, Tiger Schulmann has also trained several dozen professional martial arts competitors and title-holders in Muay Thai kickboxing, grappling, boxing and mixed martial arts. Many of them have even competed at the UFC level.
