Young Masters martial Arts
Traditional Dojang, but The senior instructors realize that modern methods, tactics and training has its place. There is a strong emphais on self-defense/combat applications and since they have put bunjikan classes on the schedule, there has been a real increase in realistic self-defense. Compared to other martial arts studios in town (there are three plus the park district program) they offer the most 'realistic' training. While they don't advertise as a MMA school, they sure do a good job of training at not only standing waza, but grappling techniques. They've never said who trained them in groungwork, but they sure know what they're doing. My kids have trained with two other schools in the area, but this has been the best so far.
