I have been taking Jiu Jitsu classes here for about 5 months I have to say I got very lucky to find this gym near my school. It is a great gym with amazing coaches, a very friendly and cohesive environment. The bjj classes are great. And parking is always available. They have classes in the morning evening and night which makes it easy to fit into flexible schedules. All the coaches are very informative and precise when instructing. And the facility is amazing. If u r looking for a good place to train or workout, would recommend tdc mma 11/10. More...

I have been studying Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for approximately 10 years, and have been a serious student at many Brazilian Jiu Jitsu schools. All of the schools I've trained at had different training methods and culture but if there was a contest for which school has the best training atmosphere, TDC MMA would without a doubt be the champion. TDC has found the perfect balance where training partners roll hard enough to provide an excellent workout but soft enough to avoid injuries. Dino and Tim put great effort into keeping all the mats and showers impeccably clean. Fresh towels are stacked at the front desk and shampoo and body wash is kept in the shower so that when you're finished you can head straight to the shower to freshen up for a night out. Free coffee and interesting books on grappling are available in the upstairs lobby for your enjoyment while waiting for a class to begin. The front desk staff always greets you with a smile and hello/goodbye when you enter and exit the facility.There are very few people whom I would consider masters of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu but Dino Costeas is a true master of the art. Dino studied under Rickson Gracie going as far back as the 90s and is one of the longest serving instructors in Chicago.His resume includes training many local area fighters as well as former UFC champion Andrei Arlovski. Dino is also incredibly humble and works to instill good values into his students.The strength and conditioning program ran by Tim Allegretti is very effective in building strength and endurance. It is basically like having your own personal trainer. You can reserve your spot in classes which are limited in enrollment to ensure you can get enough individualized coaching.Muay Thai coach Matt Johnson is very passionate about his work. He is also a very personable coach who spends individual time with each new student teaching them the fundamentals. Matt will also post links on social media of famous Muay Thai fights as examples of techniques demonstrated in class.If you're interested in martial arts and fitness I would highly recommend stopping by and trying the classes out for yourself. I'm sure you would have a great experience! More...

I think you'll be doing yourself a disservice if you don’t go check this place out. If you are looking to crush those New Years resolutions or you’re a skilled martial artist, maybe just looking for a different way to get in shape TDC has what you need to succeed! What better way to do that then learning to defend yourself with great people? More...

World-class MMA training! But this academy has so much more to offer, including amazing personal training, yoga, massage, and physical therapy. The space itself is totally zen, with a beautiful lounge and an outdoor space. Dino Costeas is an awesome coach and leader. His humble approach is so surprising, considering the results you'll see. It's not just a gym, it's a family. Highly recommend. More...

Joined as a complete newbie in Brazilian jiu jitsu, and I completely fell in love with the coaches, atmosphere and the team. I also took up their strength and conditioning program and have noticed positive changes not only in body image  and conditioning but with self confidence as well. This is probably one of the cleanest facilities I've walked into, and it's maintained very well daily. Any skill level is welcomed, and everyone here is incredibly helpful. More...

This is not just a gym. This place is a home away from home. The training is untouchable, the equipment is top of the line and most importantly the atmosphere is welcoming. I have seen confidence built, strength gained and technique mastered with a community of people that will support you every step of the way. It's doesn't matter if it is your first day or you have been training for years. More...

TDC MMA and Fitness is the best place to learn martial arts in Chicago. The gym has quality equipment for martial arts and strength training. I appreciate the clean environment and the respect the owners and the students give the gym.

The instructors and students have created a respectful and inclusive community where everyone supports and pushes each other in their training. As a woman training mixed martial arts this is especially important to feel supported while still being pushed to reach my potential. Overall the caliber and quality of training is high.

Great place to train and learn martial arts. The students, teachers and owners are great. TDC has many classes across many disciplines like wrestling, BJJ, Muay Thai, MMA along with offering Yoga and Strength and Conditioning classes. For my schedule its perfect because they have morning, lunch and night classes 6 days week outside of Friday nights. The students there are a diverse bunch of great people from Fireman, cops to lawyers and doctors. This bond between students is facilitating by the great atmosphere that is built by their owners Tim and Dino. I have traveled the world going to facilities in Europe and all over the US and have never found a nicer facility. The locker room is huge and clean. The mat space is the biggest I have seen and the strength area is second to none. I am very happy that I found TDC More...
