No Joke MMA Celebrates 15 Years of Kids Summer Camp


No Joke MMA Kids Summer Camp

No Joke MMA has had a number of successful fighters on the Chicago MMA scene. Former XFO contender Danny Bazarek is heading up their annual summer camp, now celebrating 15 years. Here is information on the camp from the No Joke team. 

No Joke MMA was founded in 2002 and shortly thereafter launched their first summer camp in 2004 — which incorporated many fun martial arts games and was anything but your traditional summer camp. In the years since the summer camp has become a highly-anticipated event amongst the Loves Park community. With ninja obstacle courses, samurai training, archery, and even a real-life Fruit Ninja demonstration —one can easily see why kids love the No Joke summer camp.

This summer, the team at No Joke returns with several week-long camps, including:

  • Superhero Camp

  • Ninja Camp

  • Karate Camp

  • Sports Camp

  • Samurai Camp

  • Secret Agent Camp

  • Zoo Camp

“Spaces are limited and filling up quickly,” says Head Children’s Instructor, Danny Bazarek. “I’ve had parents asking me about this year’s camp starting in January.”

To register, parents simply need to call No Joke Mixed Martial Arts at 815-986-5425 or visit nojokemma.com/camp for more details.

No Joke Mixed Martial Arts is known in the community as a leader in martial arts instruction for children and adults with an emphasis on developing confidence, coordination, and self-defense skills. Since 2002, we have employed over a dozen instructors and served over 1,000 Rockford-area residents with our friendly environment and expert instruction.

Don’t forget you can always train at home. Most everything you see in a boxing or MMA gym can be bought to use at home. A great tool to work on striking is double end bags. Sharpen those skills to get fists of fury!
