The masterful instructors at Keller’s Martial Arts nurture self-confidence and enhanced physical fitness in a variety of focused disciplines. Each of the instructors operates under the philosophy that learning a martial art heightens physical strength and endurance by burning calories and strengthening muscles, and bulwarks emotional fortitude by instilling a sense of achievement and self-mastery. The resulting inner peace nurtures continued learning and, like the ripples in a pool after an elephant's cannonball dive, ramifies to other areas of life. Commitment-free classes welcome newcomers to sample the discipline of their choice, such as MMA, or kickboxing.
The instructors at Chicago Combat MMA are skilled in many forms of fighting: boxing, kickboxing, judo, jujitsu, and the Indonesian art of pencak silat to name a few. They draw from each of these fighting styles to teach mixed martial arts in their sprawling gym space, which features a boxing ring, wrestling circles, and artistic graffiti.
For owner Joe Zuniga, mixed martial arts is a family legacy passed down from his father and cultivated over 26 years into black belts in kodokan judo, goju-ryu karate, and five-animal-style wing chun kung fu. Thick mats inside the handsome brick gym stretch across the wide wooden floors, which also bear the weight of heavy bags, speed bags, and play-doh used to build bodies at the bench press. The modern studio?sans boxing ring?enjoys ample light from picture windows to highlight maneuvers, grow ferns, and display fear-inspiring pikes in carved wood frames.
