Elmhurst martial arts gym puts kids first
ELMHURST – It's less than 30 minutes into Tony Gutierrez' adult Muay Thai class and he already knows my underworked, junkfood-fed body is surrendering to the crunches, push-ups and lunges. With each new drill, he patiently presents me with a more basic version, catering to my complete lack of experience.
"Try to hit me," says my partner, 12-year-old Antonio Gutierrez, the oldest of Tony's three sons, as he dances out of my way.
Seeing me struggle, Antonio begins to relate story after story about past students who couldn't keep up during their first class either, but are now succeeding.
