I have always wanted to learn a Martial Art 90% for self defense, 10% for execise. I do not want to sign a large contract and have done some reading on the various arts. Can anyone recommend a good school in the NW or SW Chicago burbs for martial arts? I have read about the various arts and I guess to be honest looking for something that is effective, good exercise, and I have always wanted to become a blak belt but I am in my later 40's and realize that money, time for practice and time for classes may not be on my side. Ideas for the Chicago suburbs?
