What Our Happy Customers Have To Say

  • Emilie Hinton

    I believe attending Tri Star Martial arts has helped my 9 year old son Noah in his focus…
    Although this has always been a challenge for him, little by little he is improving. He has also gained flexibility and strength with the physical workout. He also enjoys a feeling of pride at what he can accomplish. Also Noah has gained strength and muscle from his training at Tri-Star as well.

  • Dean McGregor

11Tri-Star Marital Arts Academy was founded by Duane Brumitt in February 1998. Duane has been practicing martial arts since 1991, when he began practicing martial arts at the age of 17. He quickly became proficient with basic, intermediate, and advanced material, and when he was given the opportunity to teach martial arts to others, he discovered a passion for teaching and seeing how martial arts could change other people’s lives.

Now, Tri-Star Martial Arts Academy offers classes in an eclectic martial arts for both adults and children. The style taught at Tri-Star Martial Arts has a traditional base of karate but uses a mix of styles, including Tang Soo Do, kickboxing, grappling, and Haganah. This mix has been developed by Duane over the years to make sure that the style he teaches is comprehensive.

The classes at Tri-Star Martial Arts Academy have three areas of emphasis: self defense, physical fitness, and character development. The physical fitness piece teaches timing, speed, coordination, balance, strength, and more, while the incorporated character development focuses on confidence and respect for self and others. Nearly 80% of the students at Tri-Star Martial Arts Academy are children, but adult classes are offered for adults who want to get in shape and learn self-defense and self-control.

We proudly serve Kankakee, Bradley, Bourbonnais, Manteno and the surrounding comunities teaching karate and martial arts classes to ages 3 and up!
