Amalgam Martial Academy

A unique gem of modern practical training in traditional martial arts, conveniently located in the southwest Chicago suburbs.

In 2015 we were faced with a choice: combine the expertise and talent of several experienced martial arts instructors to take a risk and open the best independent martial arts school we could on our own terms, or simply let experience, expertise, and opportunity slip away…

And here we are today, Amalgam Martial Academy!

Like the Phoenix in our logo, we emerged from the flames of rigorous training and the ashes of the past. And like our name "Amalgam" (ə-ˈmal-gəm), we are a cohesive, powerful blend of our unique constituent parts, combined to provide a rich personal development experience and practical self-defense value to our suburban Chicago community and the world.

Programs & Class Schedule

Basic Family Class: Monday through Thursday 5:00-5:45 pm, and Saturday 10:45-11:30 am
Belt curriculum class for children ages 6 and up and their families. Our "Basic" program for children around ages 6-12 is one of the best youth martial arts programs available today. Students improve their coordination, flexibility, and overall fitness while learning both practical self-defense and building character for today's world through our unique curriculum. Even our games teach important martial skills!

Open Mat: Monday through Thursday 5:45-6:45 pm
Open training for current students. Guests are welcome with a waiver & drop-in fee. Open Mat at Amalgam is a time to enjoy safe, non-competitive training with other martial artists from many styles and schools. The goal is to meet together in friendship to learn from each other, get to know each other better, and have a great time without ego. Participants must discuss how comfortable they are with levels of force, as well as comfort level with take-downs, shots to the face, weapons, etc. Regardless of how you want to participate, everyone will spar you in the way that you want. Open mat is less formal than regular class. You can drop in at any time and leave whenever. Whether you go to drill, spar or just chill out – open mat is exactly what you make it!

Adult Class: Monday through Thursday 6:45-7:30 pm, and Saturday 10:00-10:45 am
Belt curriculum class for students ages 13 and up. Our Teen/Adult class is for everyone around ages 13 and up, and represents one of the finest martial arts training programs available. Beginners and experienced practitioners alike build a higher level of overall functional fitness and a base of practical self-defense while fostering deeper martial arts skills in training with us.

Filipino Martial Arts: Wednesdays 6:45-7:30 pm. Specialty class for students ages 13 and up. Younger students are welcome with instructor approval. Begin your Filipino martial arts journey through our unique, simple family system. Simple and pratical, our Filipino martial arts curriculum is an excellent foundation for a lifetime of FMA exploration and development.

Jeet Kune Do: Thursdays 6:45-7:30 pm. Specialty class for students ages 13 and up. Younger students are welcome with instructor approval. Learn our unique JKD curriculum which combines the Non-classical Gung Fu of Bruce Lee's early student Jesse Glover, and Jeet Kune Do from Bruce's later student Ted Wong. Analytical, practical, and a great workout.

Basic Tai Chi For Terrified Westerners: Saturdays 9:00 am. Available by enrollment or appointment only, for students ages 13 and up. Traditional low-impact movements that promote health for both body and mind, and martial applications for students seeking that side of the art!
