At Tiger Schulmann’s MMA, our youth programs are designed to instill confidence and aid children in developing to their fullest potential.We seek to help build a solid foundation in life for as many children as possible, by assisting them in achieving a healthy mind and body through martial arts instruction.
Joshu Shane Baker started training at Tiger Schulmann’s in Bensalem, PA at the age of 5. His grandparents put him in because he was very shy and needed a boost in his confidence. He earned his 1st degree black belt at age 8, and his second degree at age 14. The discipline and confidence that he learned through Tiger Schulmann’s has allowed him to venture off into other areas of interest knowing that he won’t give up until his goal is reached. After graduating from the University of Delaware with a BS in Electrical Engineering and a MBA, he returned to his passion and has been the owner and head instructor at Tiger Schulmann’s MMA Cherry Hill since 2011.
Joshu has also been a certified professional tennis instructor for over 9 years, teaching from ages 4-70. His love for teaching and helping others get better fuels his drive to continue to guide his students to be the best. Joshu is an undefeated amateur kickboxing champion. Joshu also has numerous victories at NAGA and Challenge of Champion tournaments in Grappling, Kickboxing, and MMA. His competition experience allows him to teach what will work in a real situation and also how to be the most prepared for any situation.
Tiger Schulmann’s has helped and saved his life on many different occasions, specifically helping him through a very difficult childhood, in giving him the non-quitting spirit to never give up hope and continue to fight until he and his family made it through those tough times. After returning from college, Tiger Schulmann’s again changed his life by getting him not only back into a position that he loves to do, but also getting back into great shape by losing 30 lbs and off of the destructive unhealthy path that he had become accustomed to over the previous few years. Joshu Baker brings these life experiences back to his students to show how Tiger Schulmann’s can change and save people’s lives from all ages, young to old.
