About Frankfort Mixed Martial Arts in Frankfort, IL

Meet Jill Turner

Owner and Chief Instructor at
Frankfort Mixed Martial Arts in Frankfort

My name is Jill Turner. I'm the owner of Frankfort Mixed Martial Arts.

I was born on April 15,1979. My family and I have been residents of the Frankfort area our whole lives. My mom is a very well known and respected real estate agent. Shes been doing it for over 30 years and has helped many families in the Will county and Cook county area buy their dream home. I went to Lincoln Way East High School and Lincoln Way Central. Back in the day they had the freshman and sophomore go to East and the juniors and seniors went to Central. From what I understand they don't do that anymore.

I am a mother of 4 beautiful kids. Actually I just had my 4th baby. She was born a girl so that makes 2 boys and 2 girls.

I opened up our martial arts school about a year and a half ago. We started in 2400 square feet. My goal or dream was to be in 15,000 square feet in 5 years. Well a year and half later were in 15,000 square feet. Our program has grown so fast. I pride myself on customer service. I think since I'm a mom it helps a lot too.

Our kids martial arts program is huge and constantly growing. We're also the only martial arts school who teaches 3 year olds. What most people don't know is I'm also a personal trainer and certified crossfit instructor. I normally run the fitness bootcamps but don't as of now as I just had my baby.

I'm also a registered nurse and have been for 10 years now. I work on a medical surgical/ telemetry floor. I am CPR and ACLS certified. I am also a relief charge nurse. Some of you are probably wondering how I own my own martial arts training facility. Well my inspiration was my children. Especially my 2 boys. Noah and Aiden. Noah started training wrestling and brazilian jiu jitsu when he was 5 years old and Aiden started at 3 years old. After trying out a few different places we weren't satisfied. On top of that these local place didn't have the greatest customer service. So I started studying the sports myself.

Now let's fast forward 7 years later.

With the knowledge I have gained, my boys have accomplished great things. They have been state champs in Wrestling, state champs in Judo, and most recently world champions in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Yes, you read that right. They are both number in in the country in Jiu Jitsu.

We recently flew them both out to California to compete against the best kids in the world and they took home the gold. I am a proud mother.

That being said at Frankfort Mixed Martial Arts we don't make anyone compete. As a matter of fact 95% of our student base doesn't compete. We never even bring it up to you.

I love martial arts and what it has done for my kids' confidence and self discipline. Both my boys get straight A’s and are really well mannered.

Not only that - it saved my son, Noah's, life.

My son Noah had a heart defect when he was born. We didn't find out about it until he was 8 years old. At 10 years old he had open heart surgery. We thought he would never play sports again. He was depressed because he couldn't move or do any sports at all. He had gained over 30 pounds of bodyfat after the surgery.

Well not only did martial arts help get him strong but it helped him get in the best shape of his life. He lost all his extra weight and gained a lot of muscle. Soon after he flew out to California and won his 1st world title. So he's now 2 time world champion.

Because of the martial arts training he's now also starting tailback for the Frankfort Falcons. Last year he averaged 2-3 touchdowns a game. Season just started recently so I'm excited to see what he's going to do this year.

I would love to help as many families as possible and their children be the best they can be.

So whether you want learn self defense, martial arts or just want to get in shape, give us a call. I promise you won't regret it. I'll see you on the mats.

Have a great and blessed day!
