Jessy was amazing! She helped my wife relax and stretch some tender muscles (back and calf)! She has that special ability to just let her personality take you on a ride because she truly loves what she does and leaves you feeling better afterward! I'd recommend her to anyone!
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.
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 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. In 2015 I developed Cancer and had to go through 2 major surgeries as well as 3 months for Chemotherapy treatment. It was very hard for me to go through and was incredibly humbling. Since then i have quit my corporate fitness job and went on an international trip for 5 weeks. Now I'm ready to bring my skills from the corporate world to the public. 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. I have a ton of ideas, portable training gear, and knowledge to share.

I am a personal trainer because I enjoy making a positive impact on the lives of others. The most important part of my job is helping clients reach their goals. It really gives me a sense of accomplishment knowing that I helped change someone's life.
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!
