I am on removal proceedings and i have a court date on the second week of may. MY situation back home

is really bad and it is not safe for me to go back home since i have already been a target of physical abuse. i was told that i cannot file for asylum until after the hearing. Is it true?

You should be able to reqeust reliefs in the master heearing and the judge will give you a date to file asylum if you are eligible for it. It is complicated to file a defensive asylum and you should hire a lawyer.
