Sensei Carlos J. Brooks
Sensei Carlos Brooks started training in the Martial Arts at the age of eleven, by studying Tae Kwon Do for 8 years. He was forced to stop training for some time due to an injury. Upon his return to the Martial Arts, he went to the Manhattan TSMMA school because he was always interested in learning a hybrid style and wanted to lose weight with a fun work out method.
His appreciation for the Tiger Schulmann’s martial arts style soon led to competing and followed with a teaching position at the TSMMA school in Manhattan, where he currently teaches and trains. He is also teaching and training at the TSMMA Headquarters and Training Facility in Elmwood Park, NJ.
Sensei Brooks has competed in the New York Golden Gloves, with a record of 2 wins, 2 losses. Presently he is member of the WCL New Jersey Tigers. He looks forward to continue to grow as an instructor and martial artist with the TSMMA organization.
Joshu Adam Rosello started his journey through the martial arts at the age of 5 years old. His brother was a third degree black belt and he always looked up to him. Adam recalls looking through his brother’s collection of black belt magazine, realizing that he couldn’t wait until he could go to a real school one day and become a black belt as well. His parents found out quickly that martial arts were necessary after learning that Adam was bullied in the first grade. Adam was soon enrolled and he continued training and competing in tournaments for the next 10 years of his life.
Adam later put martial arts aside while attending high school. He kept his discipline and competitive spirit in and out of the classroom. He went on to play varsity football, wrestling and rugby for the next 4 years. Many college teams were looking to recruit Adam to play football at the collegiate level. Although his first game of his senior year, he sustained an unfortunate injury that put an end to his college football hopes. After rehabbing his ankle for the rest of his senior year, Adam thought this would be the end of his days of competing. He went off to college to pursue a business degree.
While in college, Adam could not find the right venue for his competitive nature. As a result he would gain over 100 lbs. Walking around close to 300 pounds, he knew he needed to find a change and the gym wasn’t working. In the back of his mind, something wasn’t complete; he never got that black belt he dreamt about since he was a child. He finally saw a commercial for Tiger Schulmann’s Mixed Martial Arts, took the trial class and his life was forever changed. Adam started his training with Joshu Sofia Gegovic in the mornings of Tiger Schulmann’s Manhattan. He lost his first 30 lbs in the first month of training. After losing another 50 lbs, his instructors saw that he has natural ability in martial arts and sent him to continue his training with Shihan Schulmann at Tiger Schulmann’s Head Quarters. Adam spent a large portion of his fight training with friend, corner man, and teammate Lyman Good (Bellator Welterweight Champion) After instructor and fight team training for a year, Tiger Schumann encouraged Adam to start competing in MMA, where he amassed a 3-3 record along with a 1st place finish at NAGA (Grappling Tournament). Adam is still an active part of the fight team and still competes.
Adam went on to become a black belt and head instructor under Shihan Schulmann. He started his career out in the flagship Tiger Schulmann’s School in Manhattan, NY. He was later appointed to be the head instructor at the Cedarhurst location, where a large portion of his student body were kids and children. After the merger between Cedarhurst and Rockville Centre, Adam had the privilege to work with Sensei Shennen Maceo, World Muay Thai champion. Currently, Adam was asked to become a head instructor back at his home school in Manhattan. He is currently the morning Head Instructor of the Manhattan location.
“Martial Arts is a lifestyle. The pursuit of truth and perfection. Taking on challenges that most wouldn’t. Seeing through one’s goals through hard work and dedication” – Adam Rosello
