Become Healthier, Safer, And More Confident Through Our Unique Variety Of Traditional Martial Arts!

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! We're located in beautiful Downers Grove, IL just forty minutes southwest of downtown Chicago.

Do you need to keep the schoolyard bullies at bay? Do you want to maintain a clear mind and a limber body into your 70’s, 80’s and beyond? Let us show you the way!

We’re not a “McDojo” or “belt factory” type of school, and we don’t do business like one. No long expensive contracts, no hidden fees, no tricks. We’ve gone through that experience so you don’t have to!

No myths, mysticism, or traditions for their own sake. Our students learn the truth about what really works & why through expert traditional teaching balanced with modern knowledge and practice. Gain real confidence in your ability to take care of yourself and the ones you love. There is no reason to live in fear. You can do this, let us show you how!
