The funnest, most action-packed workout of your life. Guaranteed.

Kickboxing class FLIES by! Even though it's a full-hour, full-body workout... it goes by in a flash.

That's because almost nothing on this planet is as fun as punching and kicking the heck out of a heavy bag.

You'll feel like a total pro - and your body will transform fast.

Melt calories, burn fat, and tone muscle - from head to toe.

EVERY part of your body gets a workout in Kickboxing! That includes your arms, chest, stomach, hips, butt, thighs, and calves.

That means ALL your trouble spots won't trouble you for much longer! And every part of you will get stronger, leaner, and fitter.

In fact, you can burn up to 800 calories (or more) EVERY time you come! How awesome is that?

You're joining more than a calorie-blasting workout... You're joining an amazing, supportive family.

99% of our members have never thrown a kick or a punch in their life! So if you're a total beginner - you're in good company!

There's nothing to be embarrassed or ashamed about! Everyone here was once a beginner - so we just want to support you and help you learn, get fit, and grow.

Fair enough?

People come here for the fat-melting workouts... but they stay for the people.

Our community here is really something - and I can't wait for you to join it too.

Friendships are born all the time. People give each other support and accountability to stay on track.

It really feels like a family, and I know from day 1 you'll feel it.

Out of shape? No problem! In shape? Get ready to take it to the next level.

The great thing about Kickboxing is even though it's a group environment... everyone's doing their own individual exercises.

That means you go at a pace that's right for YOU.

Our amazing instructors will motivate the heck out of you to grow and reach new heights, too. So don't worry about motivation. We've got you covered.

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.
