About Us

Martial Arts Business Success (MABS) is a consultancy service for martial arts business owners, covering the foundations of running a martial arts school and the points that you need to succeed but are often overlooked.

From the very basics right through to personal mentoring to take established businesses to the next level, MABS is an all encompassing membership full of intuitive, step-by-step resources that are effective, easy-to-implement and pricing to suit all budgets.

All systems and strategies we provide to you have been applied at Kando Martial Arts which started out as 1 club with 250 students to what is now Australia’s biggest martial arts school with SIX clubs and a total of 2000 students in just a few years.

To get to where we are now, we have gone through many difficulties and issues involved in running a successful martial arts school. We know it’s not enough to just be a great instructor. You need to have the skills and the knowledge to market, manage and grow your school effectively. Having traversed the social media minefield and gotten to grips with accounting and human resources, our vision is to provide you with usable, reliable and cutting edge information without the typically expensive consultancy fees.


Our tiered membership options, ensure our service is available to everyone in our industry.

Whichever membership option you choose, you will receive regular packets of information covering one key growth area of marketing, management and leadership at a time. Easy to digest, intuitive and effective, each packet contains video training and an accompanying workbook. All you have to do is commit to the system and your business WILL grow.



I was just informed that I have an 18.1% increase on the previous month through EFC.

Thanks for providing the way and the support Paul Veldman. Also than you yo the MABS crew for ongoing encouragment. I would still be stumbling around my own misconceptions had it not been for Paul and MABS.

Of course there are others that have also helped me with priceless guidance but just wanted to say thanks here at teh start of the week before the grind begins.

I have stepped back a fraction the past week to improe my footing but I am back and ready to go again. Brett Austin

I’d like to provide my high recommendation for this program. I work in marketing / communications inmy day-to-day job, and I’d like to think I’m fairly okay at it, but it’s important to recognise that every niche is different, and that to not think you can continue to learn is inefficient to making your school a better one (the group is also not just about marketing). For me it is not about just growing, or making money (we’re a non-profit) it is about being the premier martial arts school in our region, and many of the ideas, discussions and packets included with the MABS paid program have helped me improve and deliver better outcomes for my programs, and I’ve only only been a member for a few months.

We decided to get out, and moved into our own place, which was the best thing we couldhave done – massive leap of faith, but we were sick with worry as to what we were doing. Then I found MABS and titans, and well, the rest is history – I had no idea how to run a martial arts business. Steve had really only been doing it as a hobby, but I have changed it around and when I say I had tears in my eyes, it really makes me so emotional. Suzanne Butler

When I joined up with MABS I decided I should set some kind of a goal. I’m a part time school owner so run a modest club – 30 students on contract. I decided to set an ambitious goal to double my membership over 6 months. I started redesigning some things, took a recommendation to get George Fourie onto my website and marketing strategy but because a few things got in the way didn’t get my new website up and running until this year. Started my first fb promo based on George’s strategy approx 2 weeks ago.

Just had my 32nd paid trial come through. It remains to be seen how many of those trials covert to post trial membership but it certainly feels like we’re on our way. And that’s just with one FB campaign. Still on the to do is a 9 word email campaign to past students, google adwords, video campaign etc etc. Thanks Paul for this group it really started to change my abition for the school. And to George, and Trent Rice for the sales pitch on the ferry. Michael Fooks

Paul Veldman just thought I’d share the success of your campaign contacting old members. We were surprised on the amount of old members that took up on the offer we have only done the campaign at one of our centres and have booked in close to 20 members so far! Terrence Fernandez

There is a very satisfying feeling when you have to write 80 personalised emails to new students who are about to start their journey in Martial arts. Over the moon to welcome so many students at our Annual intake at a local school… Hope this continues for 2018!!!! Thank you everyone – please do not stop to discuss your experiences in this forum as they are an awesome source of information that is easily implemented or to avoid and most importantly to learn from… Thanks for constant encouragement Paul Veldman!!
