Enjoy the Journey

Thanks for visiting our club's website. I'm "Coach" Chris Mikuta, the owner and head instructor at AXT Jiu-Jitsu. My family has been living in the Fox Valley over 20 years and we've been a part of the club since its inception back in 2008. Personally, I've been involved in the martial arts for 35+ years, with almost half of that time being in the grappling arts.


Our instructors at AXT Jiu-Jitsu believe in providing a positive environment to enhance our student's training experience. We promote mutual welfare and benefit by giving of ourselves for the betterment of our students and improvement of society as a whole.


We strive to provide excellent instruction in martial arts training through clear application of technique, examples of demonstrative skill, and further educational development. Through the encouragement of application-based training we work for continuous growth of our students, both in skill and character, and empirically promote personal enhancement without bias.
