Celebrating 10 Years!

Please join us this Friday evening as we celebrate 10 years of being in business!  We opened our doors just 2 months before the crash of '08 and weren't sure we'd make it through the first year, much less the first 10!  Yet here we are! There's a lot to be thankful for and celebrate as we head into the next decade, and we'd like everyone to join us for some feasting and some open mat time. Party starts at 4:00pm! Bring a dish, bring a friend, bring some good cheer and we'll party like it's 1999. Cheers!

Wednesday Morning Movie Demo

We’ll be at the Fox Lake movie theater again next Wednesday August 8th for a demo before the start of the Morning Movie! The demo starts at 9, the surprise movie starts at 10, and all students are welcome to join in the demo! Students who participate as well as their parents and siblings will all be treated to the movie afterwards, so make sure you hold off on buying your tickets! Hope to see you there!

Summer/Fall Apparel Order

We're getting ready to place an order for T-shirts and Fall apparel!  This is your chance to order any school apparel in the color and style of your choice! Once again we will be offering the basic school shirts at our pre-order rate of 2 for $30 (regular price is $20).  We will also discount any other apparel pre-order by 10%. Let us know what you want and we will get you a price.  Availability may vary, so keep a back up color option in mind.

The logo color will again be red and silver, so please choose shirt color options accordingly. For example, the silver in the logo doesn't show up very well against a lighter background so darker is better.  Similarly, redder tones might wash out the red of the logo.

Please email your orders to us at ScholarWarriorMMA@gmail.com. The deadline to pre-order is August 10th.

Summertime Schedule Changes

We are gearing up for a bit of an overhaul to our schedule for the summer months and beyond.  The biggest changes are coming to the kids classes and age groups. We are altering our age divisions as follows: Mini’s (Kids ages 3 and 4) will have a class on Saturday mornings from 10:00 to 10:30, Kids Ages 5 to 9 will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:00 to 6:00, and Kids ages 10 to 14 will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:00 to 6:30.  Along with these changes will be some necessary changes to the program itself, since we will no longer be offering a seperate Kids Jiu Jitsu program. Instead, all of our kids programs will cover the core skills and practical self defense techniques from both Kickboxing and Jiu Jitsu styles of martial art. 

On Mondays and Wednesdays, the Adult Kickboxing classes will be moved forward to 6:30 and 7:30.  Our Advanced Jiu Jitsu and Submission Wrestling classes, which meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays respectively, will also be moved forward to 7:00. Friday Adult classes will be moved an hour earlier as well, with Kickboxing at 5:00 and Jiu Jitsu at 6:00. Finally, Saturday Jiu Jitsu will be pushed back to 10:30 to make room for our new Mini’s pre-skills program!

We hope that the simplified kids program and changes in class times will make it easier for students to keep up with training through the busy summer months and beyond! If you have any questions about any of the changes and how they might effect you, please don’t hesitate to contact us via email, text, call or in person at the dojo! Changes take effect as of Monday July 9th.

Summer Demo Opportunities!

The Fox Lake Movie Theater has been kind enough to invite us back this summer for two demonstrations as part of the Wednesday Morning Movie series!  The first demo will be on June 20th, and the second will be on August 8th.  We ask that all students who are interested in participating in either or both demonstrations let Sensei Rob know.  We will meet at the theater on demo days at 8:45am, the demo will run from 9:00 to 10:00 and all students and parents will be treated to a free showing of that morning’s movie.  June 20th, they will be showing Despicable Me 3, and August 8th will be a surprise movie.  We hope to see you there!

Happy New Year!

We hope you all had a great Holiday Season and a Happy New Years celebration! We have a couple things happening to bring in the new year. First and foremost, we are excited to be starting a new Kids Fitness class, designed with Homeschoolers in mind! The program will kick off on Tuesday January 9th from 11:00 to 12:00. The regular cost for the program will be $45 per month.  For a limited time we are offering a 3 month introductory program for $120 (a $15 savings).  Please call us at 847-973-9443 for more information or to register for the class!

Also on January 9th we are starting a new 12 week Bootcamp in our Cardio Kick class! The cost is $225 for your first 12 weeks and $85 per month thereafter.  This is a great class for building better overall flexibility and strength along with cardiovascular health. It’s also a good primer class for anyone wanting to get in shape to participate in one of our other martial arts programs since we use basic kickboxing and Jiu Jitsu drills as part of our workouts. We offer body composition analysis as part of this program and try to help you set achievable goals for the duration of the program. Please give us a call for more information or to register for the program!
