About WARPATH

WE TRAIN FOR REAL-LIFE. PERIOD.

We don’t care about colored belts or how many calories you burn. We don't rely on "high-energy workouts", jump kicks, or juice bars. We won't sell you a black belt. And making you sweaty and tired is not our selling point. WARPATH is not a traditional martial arts school.

WARPATH Training Group can be found sweating in garage weight rooms, sparring in dirt floored rings, thriving with minimal gear in austere locations, training for real life encounters in back alleys and city streets.

IS WARPATH FOR YOU?

Most martial arts schools and fitness gyms pride themselves on being “inclusive” and for everyone. WARPATH is not like those institutions.

WARPATH is exclusively for those who are committed to constant self-creation through the combined crucibles of combat, strength, and adventure. Our training serves men and women of all levels and ages who share in common the pursuit of excellence.

Men and women have chosen to train under the WARPATH banner because our principles call to their primal nature. If your primal nature calls out, if fiery blood runs through your veins, and you would like to honor your inner warrior spirit, then WARPATH is for you.

HOW IT WORKS

After scheduling and completing your FREE introductory session, we require a minimum of 3 scheduled one-on-one sessions with a WARPATH coach. These private sessions cover our curriculum and serve as a great introduction to the principles of our group.

After this time, if invited to join the group, we require a 12-week commitment. We do not sell classes or sessions. Self-creation is a process and not achieved in a single workout. You must be as committed to your success as we are.

Your current physical attributes are NOT considered when selecting members. WARPATH is not just for the naturally gifted, but also for those who must work at it. Most important is discipline, work ethic, attitude, focus, and commitment.

COMBAT. STRENGTH. ADVENTURE.
