    Recommendation from Chicago PPL

    My younger bro in Chicago suddenly developed a hard on for Muay Thai...I know there are a lot of posters here from Chicago and most of you know whats bullshit and what is not. To get to the point...my bro asked me to find a school in the area that is AUTHENTIC Muay Thai and is the real deal.. I found these 2 schools in the area that are affiliated with Thai Boxing Assoc. I found another in Roselle thats MMA. Has any body ever been there ? Any personal recommendations would be great. He wants authenty MT with all the flavors of elbows and knees.

    I almost forgot...my bro lives in the NW suburbs.

    The only MT practitioner in the Chitown Bullshido crowd is OneWingedAngel, and he practices down near Midway. Sorry I can't help you with those specific schools.

    If he does check them out, have him review them for us...I'm certainly curious! :)

    the aiki training hall looks spectacular:

    Shonie Carter is their grappling instructor :) that's the good news, the bad news is they're in Cicero now, not as accessible from the NW suburbs as Skokie.
    I would liken it to the boxing or the muay thai of internal kung fu, even though that's like calling apples the oranges of the apple world. --WalkOn

    Can your bro take the Skokie Swift CTA to a Red Line transfer? The Dergernerg academy apparently has good muay thai in northern Chicago.

    I know of some Kyokushin guys that compete/have competed in Shidokan and MT events that train in Chicago. Just in case he needs a back up.

    Skokie is around Dempster and Touhy Ave (37 and 39) on the Kennedy/Edens, and a little bit west, if that helps people.

    I've heard good things about Degerberg. I know a guy who does their MMA program and he's pretty good. But you can learn straight MT there too. Their Kali teacher is supposed to be incredible.

    It's at about Lincoln and Western. Take the Brown line to Western and walk about a block east.
