Victory MMA is absolutely changing my life. I walked into Victory Naperville a broken person. Through the lessons I am learning both in martial arts and life, I regained a lost confidence I thought I would never regain- and an amazing, supportive group of people. It is an incredible positive, energetic, place which is dynamic and fulfilling no matter what your goals are-whether it is learning a new skill, getting active, or competing one day- Victory MMA (Naperville) will get you there.

I experienced Judo instruction in high school for about 6 months. Then in college for over 1 year I studied Japanese Karate and many years later, 2 years of Shotokan Karate. At age 68, after experiencing various physical issues, I wanted to try an age appropriate martial arts to keep my reflexes beyond par and learn new skills. Unfortunately, some of the teachers I observed before choosing Peter Honigmann, forgot the need to tone things down for seniors, especially those with physical issues. Then I met Peter, whose style of teaching an amalgam of the best of the various styles, fit perfectly into my needs. He teaches situational personal defense so a student of any age and any ability can know what to if they encounter various dangerous situations, potential and actual. My fellow students and I enjoy the 1 hour class and look forward to it. It also says something when prior students renew.

Martial Arts classes at Victory Martial arts Orland Park has been a great experience for me. I take the Self Defense classes as well as the MMA classes. I sometimes get to see the kids karate class and they look like they are having fun but learning a lot. The location is not easy to find the first time, in a industrial strip. But this place is a gem in Orland Park.

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!

Began piano lessons with Clara as a mature adult. She is extremely patient and highly skilled at breaking things down to smaller, more achievable goals. Enjoyed each lesson and opportunities to play with others.

I took boxing lessons with Andy and had a fantastic experience. My original reason for the lessons was to get a more intense workout. I certainly got the workout I was looking for (Andy asked a lot of questions to understand what I wanted to get out of the experience and tailored his approach to make sure I stayed challenged), and I was pleasantly surprised by how much fun I had at the same time. Moreover, even though I originally planned to use the lessons as a workout, I find myself moving through the city and navigating my physical interactions with people, in general, differently now. I gained a confidence in and awareness of my own body and abilities that I didn't even know I was lacking. Can only say good things about working with Andy and about what I gained from the experience!

This is an excellent dojo for kids and adults alike. Garza Sensei is amazing with the little ones - never a boring moment, and they stay safely and energetically engaged the entire time. No time is wasted on hokey board-breaking and silly showmanship. Kids are taught self and opponent body control, how to fall and maneuver properly in space and around obstacles, and how to deal with multiple-opponent conflict in a very safe an controlled manner as compared to other, more strike-first-oriented arts (which, if put on practice, could get a parent sued!). With a no-contract, incredibly-reasonably-priced, and familial atmosphere, the students win every time! An extra bonus is the Japanese that the kids learn. Counting and many verbal interactions are done in Aikido's native language, and most children develop a proficiency within weeks! Truly an amazing place to practice. Highly recommended.

Our 5 year old son has been taking Jiu Jitsu at Thresold Martial Arts for 5 months and is loving it! We first heard about Threshold when we saw a demonstration they did at Park Ridge Libray last summer. Now I am now reviewing my own positive experience. My husband is a police officer and urged me to sign up for a women's self defense class being offered at Threshold. I was hesitant because I work and have two young kids, but I thought it would be a good experience and it has far surpassed my expectations. The instructor is a Jiu Jitsu black belt and the owner of the gym who really cares about teaching and keeping people safe. I could go on and on, but bottom line is this is a really family friendly place - so much more than we expected. Even with my limited free time, I am making it a priority to continue my training. Thanks!!

Strive is a top notch facility with incredible instructors. The way they teach these kids stretches beyond Strive with lessons to be used at home and at school. The change in discipline and confidence in my children has been priceless. I'm grateful to Strive for being such a positive influence for my children.
