“After talking to Grandmaster Gagne on the phone for a short time, I have doubled my students in one month’s time! I have signed up more students in this one-month than I have in my whole martial arts business career. Because of the martial arts business Coaching I quit my job as a fireman and became a full time Martial Arts professional.”

The HOT LINE with Grandmaster Gagne is REAL and EFFECTIVE. If you have any questions about the program or new ideas for belt testing he answers you really fast! It’s amazing! I’m very satisfied with my decision to join. At the first moment, Grandmaster Gagne makes you feel part of this family. He also came to Spain and we had a seminar plus he tested both Master Martinez.

Sincerely, Fran Pérez

During my time with Grandmaster Gagne, he was teaching health and nutrition. I was addicted to fast food and later on in my life I converted to the vegetarian diet. It has now paid off for me and now my motto is eat to live not to die. I lost over 75 pounds. A big thank you to GMG.
