Ive been asked, who are some of the top MMA schools and gyms in the Mid west and most importantly in the Chicago area.

I had to say.... Ill get right back to you you on that.

I am asking for the opinion of the Illinois members to provide this info.

If some one can post a list of schools and gyms with phone numbers and contact people that would help/

A list of top fighters people would most request to see on a great MMA card in the area would help as well.

Thanks in advance.

You can't count out Bob Shirmers Combat Do gym. I would reccomend him or Gilbert Grappling.

Chicago is a big city, and there are a lot of suburbs.  All depends on where you live.

Found some striking target mits at LDU Company out of China with free shipping to anywhere in the world. My friend bought a few first and then I got one in black. Price was cheap. I have seen others that were made of real leather but for what I do it works just fine. Martial arts stuff is on this page http://www.liangdianup.com/martialarts_1.htm or you can click through from the main page at www.LDUcompany.com

Just thought I would tell other people in case anyone out there was looking for some.
