Welcome to
Mind - Body - Defense Martial Arts

To A Caring Parent

Hi, my name is Michelle DeLaRosa.

Many people walk through the doors of my school for the first time and think that martial arts is just about punching and kicking. This may surprise you, but there is so much more to it.

Our goal at Mind - Body - Defense Martial Arts is to use martial arts as a vehicle to inspire kids to be more confident and focused in their daily activities.

Below, I would like to share with you the most important benefits that children and parents get from our program. Then afterward, I will let our members do the talking and share with you exactly how our program transformed their child’s life.

The Transformation

After Just A Few Weeks Of MArtial Arts, This is What Happens...

Action-Packed Fitness and Exercise.

Action-packed games, activities, and exercises give kids a great workout from head to toe.

They get stronger, healthier and more fit within just a couple weeks. These fun exercises also help maintain a healthy weight!

The best part? The fitness is disguised as FUN! All your child will know is that they’re having a blast. But you and I know they’re also getting the exercise they need.

Self-Defense From Strangers, Bullies, and More.

Make no mistake about it! While our classes are tons of fun, we also cover the "serious" stuff too.

We teach kids about handling strangers... bullies... and more.

However, the first thing we teach is diplomacy. We give your child the tools they need to "talk it out" first. Violence is ALWAYS a last resort!

Powerful Character Development Breeds Discipline, Focus, and Respect.

For thousands of years, martial arts has been one of the best kept secrets for giving kids the skills they need for success in life.

Through inspiring stories and talks, as well as the process of learning the techniques, kids develop amazing traits, like:

Respect, discipline, focus, and goal setting.

I hope your child will never have to use their self-defense skills. But I guarantee these other skills will come in handy EVERY day for the rest of their life.

Fun, Fun, Fun!!!

While kids work hard and train hard in our classes...

They also smile and laugh a LOT, too!

After all, these are kids we’re dealing with here! Our classes are a great place for kids to socialize, make friends, get support, and have a blast.

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.
