About Our School

The 5 Unexpected, Life-Altering
Effects of Martial Arts.

Hi and welcome!

Want to take control of your life but you’re not sure how to do that? Maybe you're looking for a new way for your kids to work off some of that boundless energy they have, while learning and growing, in a positive environment.

Maybe you just want to do something amazing, fun, and exciting for yourself because you DESERVE it.

Our Des Plaines Martial Arts school can certainly help you with all that and so much more.

At first glance, most people think Martial Arts is a way to get fit and learn self-defense. Well, that’s very true, but...

Martial arts is a lot more than just kicks and punches! Imagine how amazing your life will be with superior physical fitness, greater mental focus and clearer thinking, lightning fast reflexes, and a healthier body to take you well into your golden years? 

Luckily, we don’t have to imagine it because we see these things in action – in every student in every class. 

Our students continuously tell us how Martial Arts enriches their lives in ways most people only dream of. Seriously. And it will do the same for you.

These life-changing benefits are more "subtle" than the physical benefits you see from our classes. While you can see lean muscle forming, and feel the effects of cardio training within the first couple of weeks, the benefits below are felt on a deeper, personal level. And the side effects are remarkable.

Just by reading this far, you have proven that you are ready to do something good for yourself, take the leap of faith into the action-packed world of Martial Arts, and live a truly amazing life!

Change can be scary, but we’ll be there the entire way to guide and support you. You CAN have it all, and we can’t wait to hear all about the awesome things it does for you. 

Here are a few life-changing benefits you can expect…

#1 Big Boost in Confidence

It’s challenging to try something new and learn new skills. But when you keep at it and persevere at any challenge, you’ll come out on top and realize you're a lot stronger and more capable than you ever thought you were!

Realizing this makes you more confident. You feel more sure of yourself and your ability to handle any other challenge that life throws your way. Both kids and adults feel their self-esteem and confidence soar easily and effortlessly!

#2 Better Focus & Longer Attention Span

Because the techniques are new, they require your full attention. As you concentrate hard on listening to the instructor, following along with what they teach you, and remembering what you learned when you get home...

...that intense focus starts to flow like a river. It pours into other areas of your life including school, sports and extra-curricular activities.

Adults are able to focus better at work, reaching goals a lot more easily while kids report getting better grades in school.

#3 Your Kind of Fitness

No matter what your starting level is, each one of our students improves from the state they were in when they took their first class. From total beginner to elite athletes and everything in between, we strive to make sure each class is loaded with fun and challenging exercises that work your entire body.

You’ll be so determined on performing techniques that some of the world’s top performing martial artists do, and having so much fun, that before you know it, the class is over, and not only did you learn powerful martial arts...

... but you also got a great workout. Being physically fit boosts energy, inner and outer strength, and self-esteem, as well.

#4 Community Closeness

We're a tight-knit group here. And our members and instructors are all about support and friendship. We provide the kind of environment that fosters friendship, encouragement, and motivation to be your best.

Your classmates will cheer you on when you master your new tasks because they know how hard you’ve worked for it. Now extend that mindset into a wide network of martial artists, practicing, struggling, seeing improvements, and accomplishing great things just like you.

There's a reason Martial Artists typically greet each other as "brother" or "sister" and it's so gratifying to see that camaraderie between students.

#5 You’ll Have FUN Again!

Reignite your passion for life in our awesome classes! No two workouts are ever the same and you’ll rock your body to the core with fun, functional movements.

Gain lean muscle, increase your flexibility, and learn dynamic movements which are super-secret to martial arts conditioning. You’ll never hear military style yelling and we don’t use body shaming, ever. Just fun, positive motivation so you can be at your best.

Our students work hard, but they play even harder! Laughing and smiles are part of every class.

Make the next chapter of your life the best one ever! We want you to succeed, so we’re offering a limited time 100% money back guarantee on all web specials. 

Yep, that’s how much we believe in you. Scroll up to the top of this page and click on the program that's best for you. Snag the super sweet web special and try us out. If we’re not for you, no worries. You get 100% of your money back – no questions asked.

Both students and their parents love these Des Plaines kids martial arts classes with good reason. Our classes are not only centered towards martial art techniques but also instill our students with discipline and a deeper sense of respect. In the end, the kids become more focused and confident and even perform better in a traditional or home school environment.

But we don't mean all work with no play...that is why all our classes are blended with super-fun games and events. We help kids to learn new martial art techniques, perfect the old ones and make friends too.

These Des Plaines Krav Maga classes are not just martial art classes! They were developed out of the mid-1930s Jewish history in a time of great need. Imi Sde-Or, a pro boxer and wrestler of Eastern European Jewish origin, used to defend Jewish citizens against anti-Semitic thugs in Bratislava on the street. He took his experience as an Olympian and street fighter and developed Krav Maga.

Imi Sde-Or developed Krav Maga after realizing that the "real world" had no place for sport fighting. That's why Krav Maga techniques focus on self-defense by using natural instincts of the body for self-protection. Our Des Plaines Krav Maga classes will put you in great shape for self-protection too.

Let your kid feel like a total rock star with our awesome kids birthday package. It's a fun, educational, structured birthday party involving martial arts... crazy-cool fun & games... pizza (of course!)... and more. Plus your kid will be the one-and-only star of the show!

They'll help teach martial arts to their friends... cut the birthday cake with a real sword (carefully supervised of course!)... and break a wooden board with just their hands or feet (if they've reached this level in their training). Guaranteed to be a safe, fun, awesome experience for your child & all of his / her friends.

A glimpse into our awesome summer camp: Smiling faces... kids focusing intently on learning martial arts techniques, and helping each other in partnered activities... applause and laughter as they accomplish feats that once seemed impossible... and pure goofiness as they play games and enjoy a bit of free time.

Our martial arts summer camp has lots of fun, games and martial arts. But it's also about helping kids see that with the right attitude, discipline, and focus they can accomplish anything. Click to learn more.
