Flagship VSK Jiujitsu school in Chicago's South Suburbs. Transforming human potential through martial arts training and study.

Welcome to Martial Arts World, a martial arts school offering a complete self-defense curriculum through reality and value based instruction!

Martial Arts World is the premier center for training, development and study of the fighting arts in the Chicagoland area. Located a few blocks from I-80/94 in Lansing, Illinois, we are the home of VSK Jiujitsu, a modern and up to date expression of Jiujitsu that has had its footprint in the Chicago area for over 20 years.

Our school is led by Shihan Lemuel Muhammad, the chief disciple of Grandmaster Anthony Muhammad with 36 years of martial arts training and experience. We offer classes six days a week. Whether we are teaching children or adults we emphasize discipline, self control, reasoning skills, situational awareness and self esteem. Even as we are training and conditioning physical muscles we never lose sight of our ultimate aim; to transform human life through the martial arts. We teach so much more than kicking and punching. Our students begin developing the critical and essential skills such as: precision thinking, flexibility, balance, form, technique and speed in just a few lessons. Whether you're 4 years old or 80 years old our training system works. Martial Arts World offers one of the most well-rounded and popular martial arts curricula found in the United States.

Martial Arts World is located 16709 Torrence Ave., Lansing, Illinois 60438. We are the largest Self defense school in the south suburbs of Chicago.
