About White Wolf Academy

xmas demoWhite Wolf Academy of Martial Arts was born in 2008 when Chad White Wolf Koch began teaching in park districts in the near western suburbs of Chicago. In a lucky twist, a spot for Martial Arts opened up in the Park District of Forest Park days before he inquired about starting classes. White Wolf Academy started with five students in September 2008 in Forest Park. White Wolf then secured an adult class at Berwyn Park District as well as a children’s class in Brookfield Recreation Department.  The classes slowly grew.  The Berwyn adult classes were going so well the Park District asked him to start children’s classes after attendance for another program abruptly ended.  It wasn’t long before White Wolf had to add a second children’s class.  He also added an adult class in Brookfield and Forest Park. 

White Wolf Academy added the Flowing in Strength Yoga program in 2011 to offer a more holistic body health instruction.  Flowing in adult1Strength Yoga is offered at Berwyn, Forest Park and Burr Ridge Park Districts.  Flowing in Strength Yoga uses influences from Hatha and Iyengar yoga to address body and joint alignment, strength, flexibility and breath.  White Wolf apprentices with nancy DL hearty at Yoga Journeys to the Heart and Gabriel Halpern in the Level 2-3 class and the Gentle class at Yoga Circle in Chicago.  Yoga is a fantastic compliment to Martial Arts, the two fit together like Yin and Yang.   White Wolf Academy encourages students to practice both as a way to strengthen connection to Mind, Body and Spirit.
