I went at Victory Martial Arts Academy Orland Park from Crestwood. I was afraid about my friends. The students are welcoming and more than willing to help out new students. They gym has a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. Again, I would highly recommend this school.

The Sensei has a passion for the martial arts like no one else that I know. The facility of Victory Martial Arts Academy Orland Park is great; they have a ring, professional mats, and all kinds of hitting bags and pads. He understands that being patient and enthusiastic is a priority when he teaches his students. I recommended this school to anyone.

"I live in Moneka with my mother and I wanted to get admitted in a school near my residence. Then I admitted Victory Martial Arts Academy Orland Park. I can feel myself getting more comfortable with the movements and I am motivated to keep practicing and training. Everyone has been beyond helpful. Thank you.

I went to Victory Martial Arts Academy last weed. The new facilities are clean (I saw a guy singing and going around cleaning the floors), and very inviting. Equipment is new and very well kept, not tossed around or shoved in a corner like other places I've seen. The training floor is well sized and there are tons of classes a day so that no single class is overcrowded.

After checking out numerous karate schools, I chose this school because they deal just with kids and it was really close to home. I was pleasantly surprised on how large the dojos are and how clean the whole area is. My son has been going for a year now and working toward his black belt. I would highly recommend this school to anyone.

Victory Martial Arts Academy is really a good school. It is for all classes of people. My three children take Karate here and I take Kick boxing. My two kids are in different age and they love it. My daughter goes two times a week (she's 3) and my sons go three times. Highly recommended to all.

Super training center..! If you are looking for a place to train karate, I would HIGHLY recommend Victory Martial Arts Academy. For starters, the instruction is excellent. Students on all levels, beginner through advanced will benefit. Techniques are taught in such a way that makes it easy to translate from drills to sparring.

He is the BEST...! I didn't really know what to expect Victory Martial Arts at first. I sent an email and he responded to me the same day and invited my family to come check out the school. He was very welcoming and pleasant and made us feel at home. I feel that Victory Martial Arts is by far the best.

I believe a teacher affects eternity and he is absolutely Mr. Riccardo. He can never tell where his influence stops. I believe to be the best you can be, you must surround yourself with people that help bring out the best in you. The family atmosphere is not only welcoming but encouraging.

Excellence in training?..! I've been training kickboxing here at MMA Victory Martial Arts Forest Park for over two years now. I've seen a lot of benefits from it in my life. It has given me some great self-defense skills should I ever need to use them. I would highly recommend this studio for anyone.

In my estimation, these core ingredients (honor, respect, discipline, hard work, and honesty) help a young man, or lady succeed in all aspects of life, personal and professional. As a father to a four year old it is my goal to make sure my child evolves into a person with these qualities. Mr. Riccardo is helping me to teach my child all this.

Mr. Riccardo's Martial Arts class is great. My son takes martial arts there and likes it very much. He was taking karate elsewhere and wasn't getting the enjoyment or the amount of learning and confidence he gets from this Mr. Riccardo. Great school and great instructor?!

My son's self-esteem and confidence was very low and he hated going to school. Since starting classes with him my son makes better grades and we don't have to fight with him to go to school?!!!

After all this, in modern age you have to know self-defense and Victory Martial Arts Academy is the place where it is taught.

"If your child is having problems with self-esteem, bullies, or discipline, enroll them at Victory Martial Arts Academy. I wish I had enrolled my son two years ago. She will be definitely be prepared for kindergarten. There is a gym upstairs for parents. If you are one of the few that have not been to Victory Martial Arts Academy you definitely need to visit.

Being a father of two youngsters who are into martial arts, I am so please with the way my children are advancing to progress. Bringing them to the right school is really a big factor. Victory MMA provides world class training and perfect environment for my kids. If you have young and athletic kids why not take them to class at MMA near Forest Park.

Our school offers more than physical wellness. Awareness to this new form of upgrading your body??s physique through martial arts exercises is one of the highlights of the school program. As my years of training in this field continue to grow here, I had the satisfaction both in excelling achievements of my students and the competency of MMA. I would like to encourage amateurs, enthusiasts and professionals to visit us.

People come to lose weight or learn a skill they saw on a MMA fight but come away shocked about how the training affects them so personally and so deeply. I had a classmate tell me once that the gym literally saved his life. He wasn't talking about a street fight. He was talking about how his life saves because of the training. And it was a turning point that he would remember as he lives. Victory Martial Art will always be remembered.

One of the best times at Victory was about a week ago at my second Comp team practice where I was sparring with someone more advanced than myself. I got roughed up pretty good and I had a good amount of bruises, but the work out and core strength increase I received by time the next class came around made me feel so good, I knew it was all worth it. I love my surroundings and am very comfortable with the people I work with at Victory. They have helped me transcend my entire lifestyle. They make me feel as if we are all family and even if our goals are different, they give us all the same motivation: Success! I would recommend anyone who is willing to work hard and be pushed harder to achieve whatever their goals are. If you have the will, Victory Martial Arts can show you the way.

I live in oak park, but I practiced martial art in Victory Martial Arts. The training staff was very professional and technical. Everyone is always happy to help each other out. We learn a good competition technique there is no pressure to compete, but it is encouraged. I always run into many high level belts in class to test my technique against so I know I'm getting better.

Unfortunately, it has been hard to keep my desire and passion for the same type of exercise. As a result, I looked online at as many martial art schools as I could find. I saw many good reviews of Victory Martial Arts school so I decided to call and get more information. I spoke with Sensei Buontaconti and decided to come in. Since that day I have went from 228 lbs to 202 lbs, not to mention better stamina, endurance, and a very noticeable reduction in stress. From the first day I walked in the door, I have always felt welcomed and respected, by students and teachers alike. This is very important to me because everyone one is here for different reasons. When I was asked that question, I thought about it for a day, and it came to me very clearly. I enjoy things that are difficult. The satisfaction of going to class and learning is a real rush and I can't stop telling friends, family and clients about my journey.

I've been in the academy for 2 months and the training is unbelievable. I started out just wanting to learn the sport to get into shape and now I want to be a martial artist. Since I ve been training my stamina and endurance are high. I havent felt this good since high school. I'd like to commend my instructors in helping me shed 18 lbs in such a short time. Thank you. I would recommend Victory Martial Arts to anyone wanting to get in great shape or just wanting to learn to defend yourself using Bruce Lee's philosophy of Jeet Kun Do.

My name is Tom bonadurer,i've only been training for a week at victory and i can tell you I have never felt better psyiclly,and mentally than I have in a log time.

In 2004 the lord blessed me with three wonderful kids (yes triplets) and the last 4 years my wife and I have dedicated all of our time, and energy into raising them. In that time I let my health falter binge eating, not sleeping, worrying about anything and everything, and 2007 was the worst my house caught fire and I lost my job due to cut backs.

The begining of this year my wife and I decided to try to turn things around, and one of those things was our health, we joined a weight loss program in febuary, and as of today I have lost 65 pounds. I figured now was the time to try to get in shape and stay in shape. I have always been interested in MMA, but could not find the right training facality, they where either to far, or they seemed to be all about money, or just not the right fit.

That all changed when I came across the victory web site, seeing the testimonials and reading the deiscrption of victory from Master Riccardo, I was hooked, I signed up right away, the next day I got a call and I was in the gym the following monday. From the moment I walked in I knew this was the place for me, anthony the instructor is fantastic he answerd all my questions and made me feel right at home, the training has been hard and he helps you every step of the way. When I come home after working out I feel stronger phyically,and mentally, I have a sense of focus and A brighter outlook on life.

Everyone I have met from the staff to the guys I train with have been very suportive and are willing to help the "new guy" out and I am very appreciative of that, everyone here is family now. Someday I hope to work into competing but for now I am happy to train hard stay focused and learn everything I can to get to that point. Thank you Master Riccardo, thank you anthony, for this fantastic program, and one hell of a workout.

My name is Tom bonadurer,i've only been training for a week at victory and i can tell you I have never felt better psyiclly,and mentally than I have in a log time.

In 2004 the lord blessed me with three wonderful kids (yes triplets) and the last 4 years my wife and I have dedicated all of our time, and energy into raising them. In that time I let my health falter binge eating, not sleeping, worrying about anything and everything, and 2007 was the worst my house caught fire and I lost my job due to cut backs.

The begining of this year my wife and I decided to try to turn things around, and one of those things was our health, we joined a weight loss program in febuary, and as of today I have lost 65 pounds. I figured now was the time to try to get in shape and stay in shape. I have always been interested in MMA, but could not find the right training facality, they where either to far, or they seemed to be all about money, or just not the right fit.

That all changed when I came across the victory web site, seeing the testimonials and reading the deiscrption of victory from Master Riccardo, I was hooked, I signed up right away, the next day I got a call and I was in the gym the following monday. From the moment I walked in I knew this was the place for me, anthony the instructor is fantastic he answerd all my questions and made me feel right at home, the training has been hard and he helps you every step of the way. When I come home after working out I feel stronger phyically,and mentally, I have a sense of focus and A brighter outlook on life.

Everyone I have met from the staff to the guys I train with have been very suportive and are willing to help the "new guy" out and I am very appreciative of that, everyone here is family now. Someday I hope to work into competing but for now I am happy to train hard stay focused and learn everything I can to get to that point. Thank you Master Riccardo, thank you anthony, for this fantastic program, and one hell of a workout.

In the short time I have been involved in the class I have learned more practical skills than I did with 3 years of tai-kwon-do. The classes have been geared towards my line of work and have made me aware of the many dangers facing me in the street and how to defend myself from them. The confidence I have gained is priceless. I recomend this class to anyone serious about their job. It really makes you a better person

When I started training martial arts, I had no idea that it would lead to this. I first began my training in 1999 around July, august and that's when I met the man that would impact my life for years to come Dion Riccardo. Who knew that greatness was right in my backyard in oak park at that time I was in high school as a junior and I was just awe struck with Bruce Lee and when I found out he had a legit martial art system I just had to study it and that's when I meet Mr.Riccardo the moment I stepped through the doors of 1005 Madison street I knew I found a home away from home. His confidence, poise and physical grace were and are second to none. I later found out that what I wanted at the beginning was completely different from what kept me there it wasn't just self defense anymore it was more much more!
