I have been a member of Dion Riccardo's Victory Martial Arts in Naperville IL since the end of January 2013. A friend & member of Victory Martial Arts in Naperville IL noticed that I had a real passion about getting in getting in shape and was very interested in learning Mixed Martial Arts. This same friend introduced me to Victory Martial Arts in Naperville and made it possible for me to pay for Victory's very affordable & highly rewarding classes. My first day I walked into Victory Martial Arts Naperville I was nervous, excited, and very curious. Within the first hour of that first class I knew that I was in a very special place and the positive attitudes and warmth of the members and staff completely put me at ease which ultimately enabled me to focus my energy on learning and having fun doing so. In the eight or so months I have been training at Dion Riccardo's Victory Martial Arts in Naperville I have had training in all the practices that together make up the foundation of mixed martial arts by highly qualified decorated instructors ranging from high level white belts to brown and black belts. At Victory you can expect to learn stand-up (striking, kickboxing, etc.), grappling including wrestling & Jiu Jitsu and much more. I personally have began learning the basics of all the aforementioned practices and equally important I have learned how to be more self disciplined and how to be a better person and live a more fulfilling life in general. To this day I have gone from 308lbs. To 252lbs. In the first six months! That's 56 lbs! I couldn't have done that without the tremendous support and specialized training & conditioning offered at Victory Martial Arts in Naperville IL. Do yourself A huge favor and come in for a free trial at Dion Riccardo's Victory Martial Arts and your life will never be the same.

Victory Martial Arts is an absolutely wonderful place. They have high-quality instruction in boxing, wrestling, Muay Thai, and Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu. Victory has several classes per week that consist of men and women over a broad range of ages. Victory also has a phenominal kids class as well which focuses not only on skills, but on character development. Over the years, Victory has become a second home to my family and I. The students and staff have become like family and the caring and comraderie that is shared inside the academy goes far beyond martial arts.
I got out of the Navy in 2007. Reinaldo Sanchez introduced me into Fitness & mixed martial arts after getting into a bad habit of drinking as a sailor. I always knew I was a competitive person so he found something that can motivate me and challenging for me. Once I started and I saw the results the only thing I can say after that is. One National Championship later in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and three gold metals in International competition....This man and these people are the real thing and you will most definitely see results. A+++
I should start by saying that, while I often read them, I NEVER write reviews. That being said I felt that my experience warranted one in this case. I first met coach Miguel at a place called Hybrid Martial Arts & Fitness, which I strongly recommend looking into if you have any interest in trying out or further improving your skills in Taekwondo, MMA, Muay Thai, BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) and more. The staff is quite friendly and have shown me nothing but kindness since my first day there. Additionally the vibe is not an egotistical one, a problem that definitely exists at other gyms. Regardless of your amount of experience everyone is welcome and everyone is safe. But I digress. Initially I went to Hybrid to hone my skills in the sport of boxing. I took some group classes then started training with Miguel one-on-one. Now you should know that before I even came to Hybrid I had a strong foundation in the fundamentals of boxing and have learned from men and women alike over the last 4 years who have either boxed competitively or have been practitioners of the sport for a long time. It was not until I began training with Miguel that I realized how much I still had to learn to truly become a boxer. Each and every session is well thought out. Of course the basics came into play first, there were many foot work drills along with heavy bag work, mitt work, as well as thorough concentration on head movement and sparring. What really impresses me with Miguel is that he takes time to learn about your background in other areas and will then incorporate it into your training regimen. For example, I have a background in wushu (kung fu) and a little experience in taekwondo. With that in mind, Miguel was able to take very small elements of what I had learned in those practices, specifically foot work, and tie them into my training as a boxer. This was very unique, in my opinion, because it helped me to not only better my skills but also create a certain style and become a boxer of my own. Every session was educational and challenging. Sparring is safe and controlled, never overbearing. Most importantly, Miguel has a bonafide passion for his craft. Encouraging, punctual, and dedicated are just a few of the words I would use to describe him. If you have even the slightest interest in boxing, or any combat sport, I strongly recommend signing up with coach Miguel. He's nothing short of a true martial artist. You won't be disappointed.
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!!
I truly enjoyed my experiences at B1 Brazilian Jiu Jitsu & Fitness. The atmosphere is incredibly welcoming and tailored to the development and improvement of the students, while being fortunate enough to be surrounded by a really terrific and fun group of people.
