Chicago Martial Arts Classes – What to Expect

At CMA, our classes progress with our students, not the other way around. If a student is dedicated, catches on quickly and tests well, their classroom progressions reflect this progress. If a student prefers a more casual pace, so will their Chicago Martial Arts experience.

Both kids & adults martial arts instruction is provided at Chicago Martial Arts & Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Classes are also available day & night, weekdays and weekends. To get a glimpse at what a day, weekly, monthly or even yearly schedule looks like, please visit CMA’s schedule page.
