    I think your best bet may be LA Boxing in Orland Park

    You could also take a look at some of the BJJ maps available on the net, like TrainJiuJitsu: that has an option to enter your zip code to find the nearest school.

    Some good schools in south suburbs and Chicago.

    Shidokan USA (Chicago, Il) - Teaching Shidokan Karate. Shidokan is an awesome style and produces a lot of good MMA fighters and Thai Boxers.

    POW Kickboxing (Chicago, Il) - Has an awesome Rickson Gracie BJJ instructor, who also trains Arlovski his BJJ. Dino is an awesome coach.

    Carlson Gracie Team (Chicago, Il) - Carlson Gracie BJJ, what else can I say about this great school.

    Brazilian Top Team Chicago (Chicago, Il) - It's BTT's US affiliate with an awesome BJJ coach.

    Brujo Jiu Jitsu (Chicago, Il) - Great BJJ, and decent Muay Thai. Could be expensive, but has simply awesome BJJ.

    LA Boxing (Orland Park, Il) Will be open (finally) July 5th. Has Muay Thai, Kickboxing, Boxing, and BJJ. Affordable, and has some great coaches, including pro fighters.

    It's not south but we do have guys who come from Indiana and/or South Chicago.

    We just won NAGA. There are a few threads where our school as well as others are discussed. Most of the ones listed so far are good schools so hopefully you find one that works for you.
