MBD Martial Arts - Open for Business

This morning, I spent some time with Sensei Michelle and her students learning about our newest downtown business: MBD Martial Arts. (don't worry...I'm told they had the day off school!)

Starting out in her garage, Michelle built a thriving business that moved to Oakton Street, and finally to Miner Street.  The City's new small business incentives helped her grow her business and stay in Des Plaines.  I'm proud of my work on these incentives.  We know that parents are going to enjoy Michelle's adult classes and downtown shops & restaurants while their children are learning tae kwon do!
