About Our School
We have a few simple goals here. However, we put 110% of our effort into achieving them. In short, these goals have but one purpose, to develop the physical skills needed to survive an altercation, as well as to also equip our students with the mental, physical and emotional tools needed to achieve their goals in life.
Confidence. Discipline. Focus.
Not only do we teach you the authentic techniques of martial arts but we also help you uncover its ancient wisdom. This will aid our students in increasing their self-confidence, to learning how to use their time more efficiently, to developing laser-like focus to go after all of their goals in martial arts as well as in life.
From our professional equipment, to the design of our facility – everything is geared toward keeping you safe and injury-free. From stretching every limb of your body, to promoting support and friendship among all of our students, we promise to keep you safe and sound.
Our facility is cleaned daily to create a productive, enjoyable atmosphere. We take no shortcuts in cleaning to insure that you, and all of our students, stay healthy.
We strive to achieve the greatest levels of expertise in martial arts that we can. We have the experience and knowledge to teach you each technique in the most efficient, effective, and enjoyable way. Our methods create a bond between student and teacher.
Our goal is to make our martial arts training as fun as possible. Each class is infused with light-hearted moments to break up the intense focus and concentration. Giving our students the perfect balance of serious focus, and light fun.

“Yes, I endorse the Warrior Institute of Chicago and Chief instructor Oren E. Headen. Academic achievement is stressed and required of all students. Before testing to the next rank, all parents are required to sign a statement saying that the student is doing what they’re supposed to around the house as well as in school and their behavior is appropriate for promotion in rank. This leverage is a powerful tool for behavior modification. Our son has been at the school since he was 4 years old, Rowan has competed in sparring, forms and weapons over that time and now has over thirty 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place trophies. Please know they do not give these away they have to fight for it. (Valuable life lessons here) (No point in all that training and not putting it to the test.) Rowan knows not to start a fight but through his training at Warrior Institute of Chicago, Inc., I’m pleased and confident that he can stand his ground against any bully if the situation arises.” -Walter Mitchell
“This institute will reinforce discipline, and teach coordination and proper martial art form. My son enjoys being in the little warriors class. Moreover, this school has built his self confidence.
