My name is Master Zuhair Hillail, head instructor of Tiger's Den Martial Arts and Fitness. I wanted to take a second to tell you a bit about our school, and what you can expect when you walk through our doors for the first time. But just to warn you - when you come, prepare to be hooked. People fall in love with our programs from day 1, and I'm sure you will too. Here's a bit about why that happens…
Our expert martial arts staff is extremely, extremely, extremely dedicated to giving you the best possible experience you could ask for. They're there for every question you need answered... every boost of motivation when challenges arise… and to instill in you the wisdom that's been passed down through martial arts for thousands of years. Our instructors care. They're here for you 110%.
And last but not least, we know how to have fun! After all, too much work is simply off-putting. When an activity is all serious focus and hard work, it's easy to burn out. Every class is filled with smiles and laughter. You'll make friends, enjoy your time, and walk away happier than when you came.
Master Zuhair Hillail is a 6th Degree Black Belt Owner/Chief Instructor and has been actively and consistently studying the Martial Arts since he was 10 years old. He began his journey in 1971 studying the Shotokan system in the country of Kuwait, under the direction and leadership of some of the best Martial Arts instructors in the Middle East. During training, his teachers saw something in him that they didn’t see in other students.
His love for the Martial Arts was very clearly noticed. No matter how tough the classes were, how demanding and strenuous the workouts got, or how long the classes dragged on, Zuhair wanted more. As the saying goes, “when the going gets tough, the tough get going.”
An opportunity arose when Zuhair's instructor had left. The school would’ve had to shut down unless one of the students were to rise to the occasion, show some leadership, and continue teaching the classes in order to keep the school spirit alive.
At the age of 12 and having only an intermediate level belt, young Zuhair demonstrated great leadership by stepping up to the challenge of taking over the school and instructing the students. Since that time, Master Zuhair has led thousands of students on their journey in Martial Arts and Fitness, hundreds of whom have earned their Black Belt.
Master Zuhair Hillail passionately teaches children as young as 3 years old all the way to senior citizens. He teaches all children at all ability levels. Master Zuhair is a passionate, caring, and dedicated instructor who exercises patience, uses his knowledge and energy, as well as his very unique and inspiring teaching methods to ensure sure that each and every student achieves their goals.
