    The Best. There is nothing like Battle School, you would ned to take a class or go to one of the events to see for yourself. Positive vibes, great group of people and they really do care about your goals. Yes, the techniques are amazing and i wish i found them years ago but the energy and people makes me want to stay!!!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Intro class. Some people choose to bring friends along, and that's always fun. 

Level 1 and 2 Monday Wednesday Friday from 6:30 to 7:30. Wednesday is our grappling and BJJ class we ask that if it is your first time attending that you attend a Monday or Friday and arrive at 6 sharp.

Wear shorts t-shirt and bring a water bottle get ready to have fun and put in work

From 95-150 per month

How did you get started teaching?

Hi, my name is Mark Hibs and I've been training in martial arts for over two decades. The battleschool platform uses Cutting Edge techniques combined with personal service to get anyone up to speed on the best fitness and self-defense today. In my life I've had the privilege of training with some of the best instructors from MMA, BJJ, Karate, Boxing, and Krav Maga. I found what worked and what didn't real fast. What makes the battleschool such a powerful platform is the structure of class, in the way lessons are built on top of carefully selected previously learn techniques, to make this an amazing experience of fitness and self-defense.

What types of students have you worked with?

I've had the privilege of working with some of the best people. Our clients range from 5 foot 1 women who've never trained a day in their life, who are fierce Worriors and have gained some kills- who can train alongside of 6 foot something Law Enforcement Officers, Phoenix Rangers and they all end up loving class at the end of the day. We have the magic formula

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure your instructor trains along with you. If they bark orders at you and aren't able to perform the functions that should be a red flag. If you're learning self-defense and noticed that they don't keep their hands up as they punch that's a red flag. LOL

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Think about what your goals are, what are some of the qualities that you're looking for? Is it fun, safe, clean and a positive environment? Do they work on Fitness, self-defense, personal development?
