Pete teaches practical self-defense in a low-key, easy-to-grasp manner. Unlike many schools, he doesn't believe in a "one size fits all" curriculum or that students have to be super fit to defend themselves. Instead, he works with each student to develop moves that work for them, drawing from a variety of martial arts like kenpo karate, krav maga, filipino martial arts, and others. It's cool to see and even more fun to learn, so if you're looking for a skilled instructor, you owe it to yourself to give Pete a call!

Coach Slavica is great! I had never taken lessons or done any type of self defense instruction before. A friend of mine and student of hers referred me to her for lessons in Krav Maga. I was skeptical about whether it was for me, but seeing the passion with which she teaches and talks about Krav got me really fired up. She doesn't just teach me what to do, but she explains from a fundamental level why I'm doing it so I have a full understanding of what Im trying to accomplish with my techniques. She has also been flexible in scheduling which is a big plus because I have a crazy schedule. Highly recommend!

I highly recommend this gym because it is very important to me that the person who trains you knows what they are doing and coach Danny Aguirre, is MMA fighter currently active, with great experience and patience to teach.He is always attentive and corrects errors to improve the technique, every time I go to the gym I learn something new and put me in better shape, I'm 40 years old and I like to have people of all ages training with me, it's great for people of all ages beginners or advanced, here you can find Muay Thai and Grappling classes

BGMA is amazing!!! You will never work so hard or have so much fun working out! I have worked out there for the past 9 years and can't imagine life without it. Bert the owner is so friendly and knowledgable. He is not only a master in numerous martial arts and KRav Maga, but is an awesome personal trainer. He knows how to motivate you and push you to your limits. He uses a lot of different techniques to do this which I think is great. He also is a nutrition nut so is really helpful if you need help in that end. He got me wedding ready in no time! All of the other instructors are great too. This is definitely a place you can come to work out but also have fun and get great results. I would highly recommend stopping in to chat with Bert. BGMA rocks!!!!!

Angel is a fantastic trainer and motivational coach. He was able to motivate me to workout which wasn't always easy. Angel is committed to improving the overall health of his clients. Exercises are designed to give you the flexibility and strength you need for daily activities in your life. I really liked the fact that we never repeated a workout. The best training experience I've ever had was training at Body Impact Chicago and with Angel Santiago as my trainer. I would highly recommend you check it out for yourself if you live anywhere near the North Suburbs of Chicago.

Krav Panim El Panim or KAPAP is the Hebrew acronym for face-to-face combat. It is the original combat system of CQB, hand-to-hand combat and self-defense, employed by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF). KAPAP (Krav Maga) fight tactics originated in the 1940s and were used by the Palmach (Jewish Strike Brigades) forces in fighting for the independence of the state of Israel. These Palmach units later formed the core of Israel's special units in the conventional military (IDF). The KAPAP Academy is staffed by former official Israeli military and police instructors in counter-terror combatives (LOTAR). In oppose to typical martial arts schools, it is an "all combat" system -- a system totally dedicated to close combat and self-defense, with and without weapons. It has no sporting or competition aspect, nor does it adhere to any classical or traditional school of thought. KAPAP Combative Concepts is the first and the only training center in Illinois to be certified by the KAPAP Academy. We offer authentic Israeli combative CQB, H2H combat, tactical training, and more. In addition to our KAPAP and Krav Maga training, we offer Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) classes, kids programs (Tae Kwon Do), women self-defense classes, and uniquely designed combat fitness classes. We offer 2 free trial classes, so stop by to get your guest pass today!
