The Difference

Why MABS is the powerhouse it is today

Mike Parella


Mike Parrella here, and welcome to MABS 2016!!

(Crowd goes wild! Wink Emoji)

I'm THRILLED to host this for the 3rd year in a row.

It's my gift to this industry that has gven me purpose, drive, and my core values...

... ever since I first stepped foot onto a training floor 35+ years ago today.

No matter what I do with my life, martial arts will always be a part of it.

That's why I started MABS. But what keeps me going...

... is the absolutely mind-blowing, incredible results people get from our guidance and information.

There are over 20 life-changing stories later on this page.

  • People talk about adding tens of thousands of dollars to their bottom lines...
  • They talk about re-kindling their PASSION for teaching...
  • They talk about having more freedom & success than ever...

And more

But that's only 20 out of hundreds of stories about MABS. We couldn't fit them all on the site!

There's another reason I do it, too. I'm FED UP!

I'm just sick & tired of all of the mis-information out there that held ME back for literally DECADES...

... and is still holding back THOUSANDS of other school owners to this day.

Maybe even you.

Our industry NEEDS this information. And I truly believe my team and I are the only ones that can deliver it.

I feel compelled to share my school-growing know-how. I wouldn't sleep at night if I didn't.

The so called "gurus" and "industry leaders" have been feeding us nonsense for years - but none of us have known any better.

Until now.

I know better. A LOT better.
$17-million-in-revenue-this-year better.

And I want to share it with you.

You in? Then grab your tickets now. Because we sold nearly half the seats before even getting the website up. And they're selling more and more every day.

Tickets won't last.

The Speakers

Our incredible lineup for M.A.B.S. 2016

First, you have to understand our “3 unbreakable rules” for picking amazing MABS speakers:

1. No “speaker circuit” talkers who make their living speaking.

We're looking for guys and gals who are out there DOING big things.

Not those who just "talk" about it.

2. No out-dated “heard that before” information.

If I've heard it 1,000 times, it's a "no."

We only let people speak at MABS who are truly on the cutting edge. If I'm not impressed, they're not speaking. Period.

3. No boredom!

Finally, we look for speakers with entertainment value. Because if you're bored, you stop listening, and if you stop listening... you dont change your school and your life. Right?

So being able to hold a crowd's attention is a must.

Without further ado, here's your incredible, hand selected line-up for MABS 2016.

8-Figure-Producing Internet Marketing Legend Shares the Hidden Formula for Viral, Profitable Content.

Perry Belcher’s internet-based companies earn tens of millions of dollars per year. And are on an unstoppable, upward growth curve.

But not just any content - content that people can’t help but share, making it go viral.

But his content also does something else: It converts readers into buyers, and positions him as a complete and utter authority in whatever industry he’s marketing to.

Discover secrets so simple anyone could master them, FAST…. but only those at MABS 2016 will hear.

“… if Perry is talking, the listener is profiting.” − Tyler Collins /

  • How to create content your audience can’t ignore
  • Secrets that you have to apply to ANY and ALL content you create - no matter how large or small it may be
  • Do NOT, under any circumstance, put these things in your content. They’re pushing your audience away. (99% of schools are already doing it… are you?)
  • How to pick topics that resonate with your market so much… they literally couldn’t force themselves to stop looking at it if they tried.
  • How pretty much every venture I launch is a massive, 7-figure or more success… because I follow these powerful principles.
  • And more!

Together with the man himself, Mike Parrella, Ryan crafted the paid-trial-to-student enrollment process that has already made thousands of schools worldwide a pretty fortune.

Now, in this enlightening, funny, four-letter-word-filled talk… he’s going to shatter your understanding of conversions yet again…

  • And more!
David Tendrich

I’ve sold hundreds of thousands of martial arts lessons from a single piece of copy I wrote one time, at home, late at night. Here’s how.

No one in the history of our industry has sold more martial arts lessons through the written word than David.

His sales copy shatters records on conversion rates and is single-handedly responsible for growing martial arts schools worldwide.

But how does he do it? And how come no one else can get anywhere near the same results… even when they completely rip off his words?

In this inspiring, elevating talk - David answers these questions are more, and gives you the tools you need to forever change the way you write.

We asked David for more details on his talk, and here’s what he said…

  • I guarantee you are looking at marketing 100% wrong. Until you understand this basic principle, you’ll never create marketing that really sells.
  • There’s a ridiculously powerful secret to writing copy I’m embarrassed to admit… But I’m going to at MABS 2016.
  • Even if you don’t have my “gift” for writing - you can still learn my gift for selling. And I’m teaching it in as much detail as possible in this presentation.
  • Here’s why even the people who basically copy me word for word don’t sell as much as I do.
  • Copywriting is 50% technique, and 50% something else. No one ever talks about the “something else” though - because no one realizes how important it is. Or that it even exists. That changes at MABS 2016.
  • And more!
Chris Casamassa

Add 5 Figures to Your Bottom Line & Grow an ENDLESS Stream of New Students With… Birthday Parties?

When he’s not being Scorpion from Mortal Kombat, Chris is the top expert in the world at growing schools through birthday parties. His own schools earn upwards of $50k / year from parties ALONE…

… but the real revenue comes from the ENDLESS stream of NEW STUDENTS he generates from his innovative party process.

Parents basically pay him upwards of $500 to bring him a room full of leads…

And his out-of-the-box systems guarantee that 90%+ of those leads will book an intro.

Plus: Chris’s parties are SO good they generate tons of referrals for even more parties.

His unique system fills every moment with games and activities that kids LOVE… while also pre-framing the parents to book intros.

One thing is certain: People love these parties, and schools using his sytem get tons of new students from them.

If you’re NOT doing parties… or you are - but you’re having trouble booking tons of intros from them…

This is for you.

Don’t miss this talk! Only at MABS 2016.

  • Sell without selling: How Chris gets 90% (or more) of the guests at his party to book intros
  • Throw the best party of their life: How to throw a party every single child present (and their parents) will always remember.
  • The biggest mistakes 99% of schools make when it comes to parties that CRUSH their chances of selling trials.
  • Do parents tell you, “We loved the party!” - yet no one books an intro? This is why.
  • And more!
Michael Parrella

Your big picture marketing plan for insane growth has arrived. And I have a feeling you’re going to like it.

I’ve achieved more in this past year than I have in most other years of my life.

Financially, personally, and everywhere in between.

But one thing in particular has grown tremendously: my approach to marketing.

Already the most winning marketer in our industry - I’ve gotten even better this year. And I’m going to share EVERYTHING I’ve learned at MABS 2016.

Just to clue you in, here are a few achievements this understanding has led to…

  • - Selling 30-40 franchises per month on average, and in the process, earning $2 million in a single month, multiple times throughout the year
  • - Out-selling every other major fitness franchise brand in the world, including crazy-huge giants like Anytime Fitness
  • - Helping new studios literally break even in 60 days, and profit in 90 days. (And by the way - they’re profits after 90 days are more than most schools’ after 20 years)
  • - Adding 2 more locations to my empire, now making my total locations owned 8.
  • - Still earning $100k+ per month in two of my locations.
  • - Not earning less than multiple-six-figures in my others
  • - I’ve increased my conversion rates, improved the product my members receive, AND upped my customer service through all of this growth.
  • - My coaching programs now help 924 (and growing) school owners worldwide - helping them earn more, have more fun, and enjoy more freedom than ever.
  • - And I still don’t step foot in any of my locations or spend more than 2 hours per week even thinking about them

That’s not to mention the massive coaching programs I’ve launched, the number of schools I’ve helped achieve more in a few months than they have in their decades of being open, and the lives I’ve changed by giving people “permission” to once again ENJOY teaching and spreading the gift of martial arts.

I’ve learned more this year than just about any other year of my life… And I’m giving you the fruits of this labor at MABS 2016.

Here’s a bit more on what I’ll be speaking on…

  • In MABS 2014 & 2015 I rocked the industry by raising the bar on customer service, which led to crazy retention and referrals in schools worldwide. At MABS 2016, I raise that bar even HIGHER - and help you grow even more.
  • Secrets of creating your multi-school empire
  • Not interested in multiple schools? Don’t worry. I’ll show you how to max out one location, too, so you have to add a waiting list for anyone else who wants to join.
  • What to delegate, and when, to raise your profits ASAP
  • What I’ve learned from being the founder & CEO of an 8-figure earning empire.
  • Why profits and quality of service are the same thing in my book. (No, it’s not one or the other!)
  • I’ve had the honor of meeting some of the most successful people in the world this year. Here’s what they taught me. And what I taught them.
  • And more!
Rigan Machado

“It Helped Me Quit My Day Job & Finally Live My Passion: Teaching.”
Mike Evans

When I attended MABS the first year I had 15 students, $600 gross monthly income, and 4 hours a week subleased out of a friend's school.

MABS helped me open my own place, a 3200 square foot facility (with two training floors!), and increase my gross by over 800%.

The knowledge in just those few days, coupled with the relationships we all built together that weekend, has kept me going... and growing. I can't WAIT to see what 2016 has in store.

Thanks to Team Parella's Coaching & MABS...
I've made an additional $100k since MABS 2015.”

After day 2 of MABS, I remember saying to my husband about running the academy,

"Maybe running a school doesn't have to be so hard..."

Everything we've learned has helped us to streamline our business, build our staff, and grow in an ethical way that is sustainable long term.

We are very happy with the foundation we've created and with the results we've seen.

Last year my wife and I went to MABS. we were a little iffy about going because we have been to so many events only to hear the same thing.

After the first hour we were blown away!

In less than a year we went from 10-15 intro lessons a month to averaging 45 + every single month. We are delivering a better product that our parents and students are loving.

Also net profit has gone up 5k/mo. in 10 months.

Since MABS 2015 my monthly billing has increased by $7k per month on average. Not to mention...
Last month was my best one yet at 26k.
Not bad for an $800 investment! I'd do that over and over again without hesitation.

I find it hard to put into words what Team Parrella has done for my school. The months following MABS, a total whirlwind.

We now do 25+ a month paid trials, even during the "slow" summer months. Our monthly billing continues to grow.

October 2015 it will be +$3,500. I have more free time and less headaches than ever before. I'm enjoying owning a school again, like when we first opened. Our families are happier too. And I know that's because I'm happier.

When I attended the first MABS... I was very skeptical of many of the industry "consultants". I took a leap of faith and joined MP's Mastermind Group, just based on a feeling that something different was going on with him.


Now, two years later, we are averaging $50k per month, and I have the freedom to live my life the way I want to. MABS and MP literally changed my life.
