I have to be honest: I'm sick of it.
All of the mis-information out there. I see the blind leading the blind - consultants, DVDs, reports, and seminars packed with fakes.
It's always been like this in our industry, hasn't it? 99% of the consultants and seminars out there have a LOT of nerve to stand in front of crowds and teach tactics that simply DON'T WORK. Well, I'm tired of it, and that's why I started Martial Arts Business Summit. It was time for a change.
My name is Mike Parrella. I own 5 schools. Each produces multiple 6-figure profits. Two of them produce $100,000 per MONTH. Not only that - I've helped hundreds of school owners earn more profits and more freedom than they ever dreamed of.
At Martial Arts Business Summit, I show you exactly how it’s done. You get total transparency, and the exact tactics I’ve used to accumulate such massive success.
Not only that… I’ve assembled an amazing line-up of speakers who all “walk the walk”. Each one is a renowned expert in their field, and each one ACTIVELY creates massive wealth for themselves and those who they teach.
That’s what MABS is all about. No more fluff. No more of the same tired tactics that have been shoved down your throat for years.
Running your school should be EASY and FUN. At MABS, your passion for teaching and for martial arts will be re-ignited. You’ll see a light at the ned of the tunnel.
You’ll realize that the freedom and financial success you crave truly can be yours.
All you have to do is show up with an open mind, and I guarantee you'll walk away more inspired, FIRED UP, and full of amazing knowledge then ever before.
Then grab your tickets today. Because after MABS 2014 -- where we turned the industry on its head -- demand for MABS is up like crazy. It WILL sell out fast.

In 2009, Mike met David at a conference in Orlando, and decided to give
him a shot. He had him write the first batch of iLoveKickboxing email
auto-responders. When the results came in, Mike threw projects at David
left and right, and eventually brought him on board as his lead
Some of those include the KidsLoveMartialArts sales page that is now the most “ripped off” piece of martial arts copy on the web, along with just about every piece of copy you see leave FCOM’s gates.
David’s words not only helps schools add on five and six-figures to their bottom lines… they brings in steady, reliable flows of new students that just never seem to end.

Seven years ago, Mike’s school hit rock bottom. He took a location that was generating $50k / month down to less than $10k / month - which didn’t even scratch his huge overhead. Debt, bills, and angry bill collectors were stacking up.
They threatened to shut off his lights and close his doors.
Desperate, and ready for change, Mike hit the drawing board. Or rather - he hit the books. He knew the internet was the key. He studied internet marketing day and night for months, testing things out, constantly tweaking, trying, trying, trying.
Finally: Results trickled in…
And then: a flood of new students. The first month he “cracked the code” he got more new students in ONE MONTH than he had in the entire LAST YEAR.
Fast forward to today and Mike is not only one of the most successful multi-school owners on the planet… He’s one of the most amazing coaches too who helps schools finally get on track — and reach — the profits and lifestyles of their dreams.
By following in his footsteps, his clients work LESS, earn MORE, and have more fun than they’ve had in years. They LOVE running their schools again, which is what it’s all about.
But Mike’s success doesn’t end with his schools. His iLoveKickboxing franchise is one of the fastest growing franchises in the entire world (not just in the fitness sector). In fact, combined, all of his companies are on track to gross $10 million this year.
He’s one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the history of the martial arts industry… and THE highest-paid coach in the industry.

MABS 2014 WAS A GAME CHANGER! The content shared covered everything an owner needed. Social media, customer service, mindset, staff training, and tons more. For me personally… growing my staff has always been a major obstacle.
Fast forward to today, just 5 months after MABS 2014, and I have a team that lets me leave for weeks at a time without any worry! I can't wait for MABS 2015!

I’ve been in martial arts for 20 years and countless events and seminars. Most of the time I just tune it all out. Something happened at MABS though. I stayed tuned in the entire time and excited, because the information was just so great.
I can’t say enough about how incredible it’s been - to see new information from people who are legitimately interested in helping others and helping ME as a school owner.
- Michael Robles
If you missed MABS, you missed THE time. It was absolutely fabulous. It’s priceless. You want to take your studio to the next level - this is the place to be. If you’re tired of working long hours and not having enough students, come to MABS.
- Rich Grogan
I felt like success could actually be done. They show you that there are no excuses. They’ve proven the formula, it’s there for us if we just go get it. You get to do what’s being done by just Michael Parrella who is doing what no one else in the industry has.
The other summits I’ve been to are these “boxes” that have been sold to you time after time. It’s the same stuff you’ve seen 100 times that DOESN’T work.
This one is the best of the physical and the mental. You get the step-by-step plan and you also get the philosophy.
Mike’s taken away that whole idea that you have to stay away from people. You can be yourself. You can be friendly. And you can still have respect that goes both ways.
- Joe Silbers
I came to MABS excited about it, and the first thing I get from it is that every one of the speakers are REAL. You can tell when people are B.S.ing you and every single person here has been authentic. They taught me to just be myself and be real and people will fall in love with you.

Having an AWESOME, awesome time here at MABS. We’ve been to several
different events over the years and there’s nothing else like it.
