I researched several martial arts dojos, particularly from a childrens perspective since two of my kids (8 and 5 years old) wanted to learn self-defense techniques. Victory Martial Arts stood out as the leading dojo. They have a unique way of integrating the time-honored traditions of respect, self-discipline, and confidence, with the relevant combat techniques of MMA, best suited for modern-day defense situations. My children love going to class, are eager to practice at home, and embrace the mat chats at the end of each class, which focus on being a better person. Having full confidence that my kids were in good hands, we decided to make it a family affair. My wife and I also train at the dojo and the adult classes are phenomenal. They are suitable for adults (male and female) at different age/skill/fitness levels and goals. As a 39 year old male with limited experience in combat sports, I was a little intimidated my first day. That feeling dissipated within minutes. Everyone is helpful, welcoming, and there are no egos. For those with a strong competitive spirit, a competition team is available for advanced training. For women who are a little apprehensive, you will find comfort in the female only kickboxing class. I encourage you to utilize their 2-week free trial period. You will not be disappointed. They also offer affordable family rates, although you will quickly become a grappling dummy to your kids.
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!
A gym Danny was previously employed at paired me up with him as my trainer. I signed up there after spending two years at a boxing gym. My goal at the time was to incorporate more strength training into my routine, but continue boxing from time to time as that is a workout I truly enjoy. Ive been training with Danny now for almost a year. Prior to working with him, I had a lot of mixed feelings about working with a Personal Trainer. I no longer feel that way. Ive done strength training, boxing, kickboxing, and circuits with Danny. He continues to help me break bad habits I developed from my previous boxing gym. Im never bored with my PT sessions, I actually look forward to them and that is very important if youre just starting off making a lifestyle change, or continuing to maintain a healthy lifestyle. In June 2015, Danny put me up to a challenge to lose 6 lbs before my next weigh in with him, and with hard work and determination, I lost 8 lbs that month! This was after bouncing around the same weight for the past few years. This gave me the motivation to participate in a 90 day challenge at my gym, which led to me getting back down to my High School weight from 20 years ago. I highly recommend Danny has a trainer. His work with clients isnt just a job to him, its a passion. He brings a lot of experience and expertise; he has an awesome personality, is extremely positive, and wants to help you succeed.
Elliott has been my personal trainer for over three years now. I am 59y/o and have worked out all my life. Elliott is the best trainer I have ever worked with. He is affordable, inspiring, and leads by example. He walks the walk. He designs a program that has put me in the best fitness of my life. And I enjoy feeling this way. My favorite part of the program is kickboxing!!! Check him out!!! You won't be disappointed, I promise. That is if you are serious about getting in shape.
My long lost family! About 3 years ago i walked into this Martial Arts Academy knowing nothing about the vast world of martial arts besides my wrestling background, and to this day I thank the Academy for not only teaching me how to defend my self properly. A lot of Martial arts academy will teach you how to defend yourself, but they will not teach you properly, and they do not take the time to personally go through a drill, or a move with you one on one to make sure that you are properly taught the way that Victory Mixed Martial Arts does. The trainers and even students really do care about each other and it is not only a workout atmosphere, but it is also a family atmosphere, which make it that much better. Victory has been with me since my freshman year in high school up to my senior year, and i can honestly say that it has helped me grow from a boy into a man. As a future United States Sailor i can honestly say that Victory has not only prepared me for self defense, but it has prepared me for life. Much appreciation to the family at Victory Mixed Martial Arts. Ussssss.
Ryan knew what he was doing and got me to loose my baby weight the healthy way! He didn't just stop at the gym, he had me eating better and gave me great advice as to what I could be doing at home to help! Great guy, great business, and great results! Thankyou again Ryan!
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 Qwik is an excellent instructor. He is hands on and pushes me to compete. I look forward to the training and to becoming an excellent fighter.
I highly recommend hiring Jessica. She is so knowledgeable about the body and knows exactly what your body needs! Every workout is individualized daily and she really uses your strengths to build up your weaknesses. She not only has a vast array of skills, but she is also super kind and makes you feel extremely comfortable. I am doing yoga and kickboxing and my husband is doing yoga with her and we could not ask for a better trainer!!
Danny motivates you to keep yourself motivated about fitness & working out. He helps you see the bigger picture about what you are working towards w/o being pushy. He has a great personality for his chosen field.
Yeonhy is an awesome trainer who really knows her stuff. She has the ability to push me to new limits while allowing me to learn something new. Her workouts are intense, hard and fun all at the same time. She always found new elements to incorporate into the workouts to help reach your goals. I loved the battleropes! It's nice to have a trainer that really focuses on you an your personal goals. She's the best!
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.

I am not some meathead fitness model trainer who gets by on their looks and genetics. I am a lifelong martial arts practitioner. I dig deep into the science of exercise and weight management. I understand the importance of exercise for a happy and healthy life but i also am down to earth and easy to get along with.

I'm willing to work with you to design a customized program that will get you the results you are looking for. I have worked with the most fitness-challenged to amateur fighters.
