Today, I sat down with Michelle, the owner of MBD Martial Arts Academy. In spite of the fact that Michelle has her hands in so many facets of her business' day-to-day, she's incredibly progressive in the direction that she wants to take her academy. Not only that, Michelle is a regular attendee of my B2B Networking group, displaying a continued commitment to the growth of her business, the Chamber of Commerce, and the Des Plaines community as a whole in a professional manner. My partner and I are very much looking forward to working with her on accomplishing her goals.

Great martial arts gym for all ages. Their kids Karate classes are fantastic! I enrolled my 6 year old daughter about 2 months ago and she loves it!! I joined shortly after in the hopes of keeping her interested and now we're both hooked! They have Krav Bag and Kick Boxing fitness classes that I promise will be the best cardio you ever had!!

MBD is an awesome place. My son attended summer ninja camp and loved it. The super friendly instructors focused not only on martial arts, but really trying to develop him as a good, honest person. Very happy I sent him!!

I personally love this Martial Arts school. I have visited many Martial Arts schools and one thing I can really appreciate is that the people who are in charge, know what they are doing. I have 24 years of Martial Arts training on a high level and can definitely say these people are professional! They have an amazing kids program. The kids learn self defense, Krav Maga, Karate, and discipline. On top of it all, they are very nice, welcoming with no ego whatsoever! The gym is clean and very organize which is very important for me. I highly recommend people in the area of Chicago to come and train with MBD martial art.

Fantastic location, very comfortable to use public transportation. The gym is beautifully kept and the energy in the gym is very positive and welcoming. The kids programs are amazing and well organized. I love the owners and everything they do for the community. The Alpha Krav Maga program they offer is highly advanced and great for everyone.
