The Degerberg Academy's founder and owner, Fred Degerberg is a mainstay in the world of martial arts.
He is president of Degerberg Academy of Martial Arts & Fitness, Inc. and owns and operates one of the largest (13,000 square feet), most versatile, best-equipped Martial Arts schools in the world, rated #1 in the U.S. for five years.
He has been an advisor to corporate, movie, TV, photo, police, and security groups. He is an author, Pocket ABCs of Self Defense and Self Defense and Safety Tips.
Degerberg Academy of Martial Arts was founded with breakthrough thinking. Martial arts schools used to offer only one art, each one claiming to be superior. A judo man would say he practiced the best art and wouldn't dream of talking to a tae kwon do man, for example. Even an expert in one style of karate wouldn't talk to a master of another style of karate. With the creation of Degerberg Academy in Chicago, that changed.
