The Illinois Martial Arts Academy (IMAA) is the premier martial arts organization in the area, dedicated to delivering the highest quality personal protection and fitness training available. Our programs provide a safe and supportive learning environment that students of all ages can enjoy.
Our Children's and Youth programs offers a highly professional level of instruction that focuses on the development of listening skills, self-discipline, co-ordination, concentration, stranger awareness, “bully proofing”, as well as many other essential child development skills.
For our adult students we provide a robust and comprehensive program that provides potentially lifesaving Personal Protection training. In addition we offer adults our high intensity Kickboxing program sure to deliver a phenomenal physical conditioning experience.
All of this is supported by excellent student / instructor ratios and a world class training facility that reflects and respects the proud and ancient tradition of the martial arts. All instructors are graduates of an instructor-training program that ensures top quality in every class. Instructors work closely with students every step of the way, supporting their efforts to achieve their individual goals (and maybe reach some they've never before thought possible).
Classes are divided by age and skill levels with separate Child, Youth and Adults class times. We also offer Family classes that provide a wonderful family bonding opportunity that can have life changing experiences.
