Chicago >Keller's Martial Arts
“They have a very friendly staff, that treats you like a family, the studio itself is clean and beautiful, and the instructors are kick butt.”
Excellent atmosphere, family is number one. Instructors focus on personal attention with each student. Changing our daily routines does not have to be a tough process at Kellers everyone works together in achieving the same goal of creating a happy, healthy community while building a strong body and mind. As an instructor for the past eight years I recommend you to come in and try a fee class for yourself. We create the classes you want.
The gym can't compare to Keller's!.
My new year’s resolution for 2011 is to renew my membership at Keller’s Martial Arts. Since my initial membership back in June of 2010, I have dropped 31 lbs and counting! I have been able to tone my body and build core strength and resistance with their cardio kickboxing program in conjunction with UBC (Ultimate Body Sculpting).
Before signing up with Keller’s, I was one of those consumers with a gym membership that depleted my funds on a monthly basis in vain. I learned the hard and expense way that the gym and I are just simply incompatible. Personally, I lack the discipline to attend a gym on a consistent basis without some positive reinforcement. The incessant boredom of stationary machines to familiar workouts didn’t help my motivation either. My initial failure with the gym, however, fueled my ambition to find a program that worked for me. Keller’s is that program. All of their instructors: Maria, Shonie and Lilia—they are not only talented experts, but dedicated trainers that will push your limits in order to have you achieve your goal. Weight of course was my initial goal, but through the course of this training, I have been able to learn techniques of self-defense, balance and endurance. They say you have to love exercising in order to commit to it and thanks to this place I have a new found love and borderline obsession with exercise and my overall health. With so many daily stressors in life, I am happy to say that Keller’s Martial Arts allows me to channel that stress in a positive way by operating a business with both challenging training and copious opportunities to build friendships with other driven members. I look and feel the best I ever have and I definitely recommend this place to anyone in need of a healthy obsession!
Most Amazing Martial Arts Schools!.
From the moment I walked into this Martial Arts School I have felt like family. I am so glad that I have found this gem, and so will you. They offer a free class to try any focus that you are interested in! I mean that shows you the kind of hard working individuals work and run this wonderful establishment. Keller's is truly an amazing place filled with compassionate and honest Instructors / Masters. I have been going to this School for about six months and truly love it to death. The workouts that I receive keep me totally motivated. I am consistently seeing new muscles developing that I never knew existed or that were even there at all. I have been doing UBC (Ultimate Body Shaping) and Kickboxing combining these two give me a great total body workout.
I have never felt so comfortable with a group of people working out, everyone is so supportive guiding you so that you do the exercises correctly. When done correctly you activate more core muscles. Other places that I have gone expect that you know how to do everything, I have experienced that opposite here. Keller's will give you a work out to remember. Even for the many days to come due to the staffs ability to always keep you guessing. There is no gain with out a little pain.
Maria, Shonie, abd Lilia are amazing in every way when it comes to shaping you into a new person. Shonie “Mr. International” Carter Martial Arts Hall of Fame Inductee and Legionary MMA Fighter will condition and push your thresholds to the limits. He will give you a reason to break out those booty shorts and flaunt it, using muscle confusion and your own bodies resistance. Lilia will give you a cardio workout that will without a doubt tone and evolve your flexibility to a new level. Maria! Maria! Maria! I can not honestly ask for more, she has kept me more motivated to do my very best and to push harder then anyone I know. The collective at Keller's can only say “Body By Maria”!! You Guys and Gals are the best!
I just don't know how many times I can say great things about this School! Out of 5 Stars I would give Keller's 10 Stars, you could never ask for a better experience! Thank you Maria, Lilia, and Shonie. I'm Hooked!
Who ever gave Keller's a bad rating is way off, I have never experienced anything that they are talking about.
The best Martial arts school in chicago!.

The martial arts that they teach is the most effective, and I have used it to defend myself in real situations. and I absolutely love the workout and self-defense that I get in the classes. If you want to get the best martial arts in Chicago and an awesome workout at the same time, check these guys out!
Pros: Excellent Kid Program, Friendly Atmosphere, Family Oriented
Thanks ! Maria and lily you guys are the best!
Worst Martial Arts school in Chicago! No longer owned by Gary Keller!!!!!. The school is no longer owned By Gary Keller. Once Gary left the quality went down. There is no Master at the school and no one above a 4th Dan. The school has no affiliation with any professional organization such as the Kukkiwon or the Kido Hae. Some of the "instructors" have no legitimate credentials. Stay away, you will be wasting your time and money.
Best school in Chicago. I tried many martial arts studios in Chicago, but none of them can compare to Keller's. They have a very friendly staff, that treats you like a family, the studio itself is clean and beautiful, and the instructors are kick butt. If you are looking for a place to train, don't waste your time looking anywhere else, they are right off the blue line train stop.
