The focus of our martial arts school in Deerfield, IL is on physical fitness, character development and self defense — rather than fighting. Our overarching goal is in building our student’s self-esteem.
As soon as you become a martial arts student, you join a community that works together toward improved physical strength and stamina, better focus and concentration, greater self discipline, competency in self defense and, most importantly, increased self confidence.
For us at Chicago Martial Arts, the practice of martial arts means respecting each other, encouraging and supporting each other and celebrating each other’s successes.
These values are especially important in working with children and families — the primary focus of our martial arts school in Deerfield, IL.
We have martial arts programs for students of all ages. Check out our Tae Kwon Do, Little Ninja and Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes, too.
For children, our emphasis is on character development and physical fitness.
With adults, our goal is to deliver all of the benefits of martial arts, including improved muscle tone, increased cardiovascular fitness, lower stress levels, increased energy, and greater flexibility.
Self-defense is also emphasized but it’s always tempered with the training on how to seek alternatives to conflict.
Each of our martial arts instructors is committed to teaching the physical skills while applying attitude-shaping exercises aimed at bringing out the best character and physical potential in each student.
