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!

At Victory Martial Arts in Naperville you can tell that the teachers are genuinely invested in you--the instructors actually care. That made a big difference for me when selecting an MMA school. The culture in this dojo is very special. You can describe it as a family, but it is more than that. What is special about Victory is that its students are not only there to learn, but also to contribute to the success of others. I have been training consistently for 1 year at Victory alongside fighters experienced in the cage and other novices like myself. I feel I have quickly improved in strength, body composition, skill and flexibility. These improvements are a testament not only to the high quality of instruction, but also to the culture and fellow students I train along side with. I could not keep this experience to myself--I signed up my 6 year boy in the kids MMA class (I am looking forward to enrolling my other boy when he becomes old enough). The kids MMA class is more than learning mixed martial arts--it is also about learning to become better people. The instructors keep each child engaged throughout the class. Learning to 'focus' is key; something that I found lacking in the kids programs at other local Karate park district classes and Tae Kwon Do schools. My wife has also got in on the action. The weekly woman's kickboxing class has added spice to her workout routine. If you or your family is looking for a martial arts school, I strongly recommend giving Victory Martial Arts in Naperville a shot. They offer a no pressure 2-week free trial and the school is very affordable.

I always feel like Sensei Pat and her staff train the whole person, body and spirit. The aren’t just teaching karate, they are teaching respect, patience, appreciation, discipline, dedication, and so much more.

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.

    I've taken Karate before and to be honest, Sensei Terrance teaches a system that's turned Sanuces 4 life. A whole body and mind experience that gives you realistic fighting scenarios and workout that made my previous personal trainers seem lazy.... water break anytime too.Learn to ask tho,lol. I learned the hard way

    It is extremely rare to find a Black Belt who is willing to work with others for personalized one on one training as I do. I have the luxury of working with so many other Black Belt instructors that I may spend more time one on one with students rather than only being able to see people in a class setting alone. I believe class settings are wonderful at helping you learn much material. However I realize that personal training sessions are the best way for others to learn self defense, or work out more effectively given many different factors in our lives. I really enjoy working with people and teaching them the knowledge that I have accumulated through school, life experience, and hard work. Martial Arts is a way of life for me, and it is a pleasure for me to introduce American Tang Soo Do to a lot of clients who may not have typically thought of martial arts but then find out that it is one of the most effective workouts. Plus, learning the skills that I teach are a lot of fun! At times, it doesn't seem like working out at all, as you have so much fun it's like play for adults. I can't begin to describe the wonders that the discipline does for the mind. And maintaining a healthy lifestyle is very important to all of us; we just have to find the fitness routine that we enjoy doing. Who would want to spend time working out on something that they don't really enjoy? Not me. Enjoy working out with one of our certified trainers and experience a fun and exciting workout like no other!


    American Sento Te Ryu is for all ages to help motivate and upgrade the personal confidence level. Able to handle all life situations under stress the ability to be calm during a fight as well. Love teaching the arts the history of the arts, fitness coaching I do as well not just martial arts. Fitness is the most important part of the martial arts circuit training. I also help in physical therapy help get the body back mobile I have worked with various personal people that have had some improvement either in their posture and or inactive limb mobility.

At the same time, teach them all the values the martial arts can offer. We inform the parents that we are here to support what they want for their children, and all we ask is that they support us. We offer classes 6 days a week, and unlimited classes for students. All classes are age appropiate. We also teach all the fancy techniques that are being seen on the internet, and movies that include the jumps, spins and flying techniques. We teach all the weapons that are associated with the martial arts. We also offer adult classes where we specialize in self-defense, conditioning and also a full martial art program. In addition to the above, we also have sessions in aerobic kickboxing where we are doing martial art techniques done to music. Our classes are most part-high intensity. We teach unarmed and armed protection class for bouncers and security personnel; basically, a third party self-defense program where we teach the military and law enforcement a third party self-defense.
