In a survey done by Success magazine, Belief in self was the #1 factor attributed to the top athletes and earners in the world.

They all go through hard times. 🔥

Even the most successful people suffer through valleys and peaks of hardship and failure. 🤯

The mindset of belief that they can and WILL succeed allows them and will allow you to NOT be poor but to be a success!

Belief in self is critically important, but its important to note that it is the STARTING point to success.

The next step is to take action towards that belief.

Want an edge on taking that step?...

No matter where you are now, no matter how small of a step you take. You've gotta start.

"Success isn't a big step taken in the future, its a small step taken right now!" 🙏

I believe in you- ❤️

"We Had Our BEST Month ever!"

Uncategorized Apr 29, 2022

Can you imagine how exciting it would be to be able to say that?

And not for just 1 month but for an entire YEAR.

Most martial art business coaches rarely have that happen with even one their clients...


With our Business Kombat clients, we hear it




As a matter of fact we heard it so much and from so many of our members at our most recent Mastermind event  at Disney, that for a brief moment I thought they were playing an ApriI fools joke on us...

They were not.

They were so excited about their success and their families success that they literally were saying "I had my best month ever"  to me BEFORE they even said hello!

I couldn’t wait to share this great news with you. Now, I'm not telling you this to impress you, I'm telling you this to impress UPON YOU how important is it for you to be in the right room, with the right people, who have the right tools to help you conquer any challenge you are having in your business. 

If that's what...

When you should (and should not) raise your rates

I’ve gotten this question so many times and it really makes my blood boil. Not so much at the question itself, but at the underlying psychology behind it.

And the question is: Should I raise my rates?

My answer: YES! Stop over thinking it. Stop it. Just raise your rates.

Here's why. You are worth more. In fact, 95% of you reading this right now are UNDERCHARGING!

The first digit in your monthly tuition price should be a 2. As in $200+ per month.

You owe NO ONE an explanation... (unless your plan is to raise current active paying member rates-which I'll discuss below)

As you already know, everything else in our world increases in price every year, heck, some things even increase every month. Yet, too many martial art school owners don't increase their rates.

Seriously, think about it, gas, milk, electricity, dry cleaning, beer, wine. water, airline prices, gymnastic lessons, health insurance, college tuition, gym memberships, rent, mortgage, payroll, internet, cell phones,...

The 3 realities of being CEO


Last week in one of our coaching groups I came across a question from an owner about some push back that he was experiencing from his staff about some forward changes he wanted to implement in his business.

Far too many of us struggle with this same issue of trying to keep everyone on our team happy while we trying to keep our business successful, so I felt it was important to share this with all of you.

As the leader of your martial art business there are some hard realities you have to learn to accept.

Reality #1. You will NEVER please everyone. You make decisions for your business based on the best information that you have and that you feel are in the best interest of YOUR business. The most successful people in the world today were once though of as "crazy" and got resistance at every turn. (ELON, JEFF, STEVE, BILL,)...The difference is, they BELIEVED in what they were doing and they KNEW that their idea would be for the better in the long term.

Reality #2- Humans are creatures...

3 action steps to improve your business & dominate the competition!

Uncategorized Dec 23, 2021

Here are the three biggest things you should be working on so you can dominate the first quarter of 2022! Or any quarter of the year.

Number one, have a reactivation campaign in place. 

Now, the reactivation campaign targets, three very specific groups of people who have come in contact with your business number one leads people that are in your system, but haven't yet booked an appointment. 

Number two people who are in your system and taken one or two lessons, but for whatever reason, they haven't started or sign up with you. 

And number three, probably the biggest category, and that is former members, people who were at your studio, who were paying you who understand your culture, but now, who knows they're just not training. Those three categories are what we call the lowest hanging fruit. And if you have a system that allows you to go get them, and get them back into your studio, that's what we call maximum efficiency with minimum effort. 

The truth is, our...

Your Business > Your Team?

business coaching success Nov 02, 2021
Every business aims to provide a service, to sell a product,or to deliver something meaningful to the industry but what many martial art school owners don’t realize is that success begins with empowering your people.
Even if right now It's only You. Or you plus 1.
Here are 5 TEAM BUILDING rules we learned from people who are way ahead of the game. They inspire us so we can continue to build and scale our studios and our teams in them:
1. Give them authority and a sense of responsibility. People want guidance, not rhetoric. They need to know what the plan of action is and how it will be implemented. They want to be given responsibility to help solve the problem and the authority to act on it.” ~Howard Schultz, Starbucks.
2. Make sure they understand your mission and believe it can be done. No company, small or large, can win over the long run without energized employees who believe in the mission and understand how to achieve...

3 Things that guarantee results for your business

Uncategorized Sep 09, 2021

Tenacity is underrated, whatever you were just thinking about giving up on, double down on going after it ...

If you can drop the habit of over-judging yourself, you’ll move much faster and be much better off in the long run. I want you to win and I wish you so much happiness as we continue to move in the 4th quarter of 2021.

When you realize you control your mood, everything gets better!  If you want to find dark, hate and negativity you will find it. But realize what you input into your news feed, your eyes, your head always affects the output. (your life) this really matters in the game of happiness, which is the goal

Remember to look for solutions on the things you don’t control.  Look for ways to upgrade and adapt on the things you do. "Good" is the enemy of "Great"

Are you ready to stay classy, positive, hungry and ahead of the curve? Whether you are just starting out or you are a seasoned studio owner. We give you the best time tested and proven...
