At the Illinois Martial Arts Academy, we offer a self-defense based grappling program. Takedowns, ground control, joint locks, choking techniques, and safe falling methods are all taught and practiced in a fun yet safe learning environment. These classes are a great way to broaden your knowledge of self-defense and are guaranteed to provide an incredible workout.
The majority of the throwing and takedown techniques are extracted from the training in our Personal Protection program. Japanese Judo and Ju Jutsu make up the rest of our standing techniques. On the ground we utilize Japanese Ju Jutsu as well as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu techniques and concepts, in addition to anything else that has been proven to be effective.
