TACTIX is Your Complete Martial Arts Fitness Business System. MORE MONEY... MORE CLIENTS... IN LESS TIME... even if martial arts is not your current area of expertise!

"Done for You" martial arts fitness business system. Plug it in and go!

Hello future Certified TACTIX Instructor,

You are in luck. The time has come for your business to explode. In the past, martial arts fitness programs had three inherent challenges. They were either too hard to learn, too expensive to implement, or did not create a new revenue stream. In other words, it was more like "martial dance class" that just took up space.

TACTIX is different! There are no funky dance moves, ancient philosophies, or useless routines. TACTIX is all about function, form, fun and profit! You and your students will enjoy a HIGH CALORIE BURNING WORKOUT that utilizes the latest techniques in metabolic conditioning, practical self-defense and advanced fitness programming.

Although TACTIX has explosive and effective self-defense applications, the energy of the class is always positive and fun. TACTIX is empowering to you and your students.

After 21+ years as a fitness pro, and extensive experience in martial arts, I have carefully assembled the best techniques that are easy to learn, and I crafted them into a complete system for you - TACTIX.

There is a huge growth in martial arts (and martial arts-based fitness) around the globe. Most consumers are seeking a martial arts workout without being injured, or having actual combat. If you've been searching for a program like this (and also one that makes you a lot of money), TACTIX is your solution.

You can likely see how TACTIX is the perfect martial arts-based fitness system for fitness pros, martial artists, boot camp instructors and gyms owners. You are given very detailed, step-by-step blue prints for everything from warm-ups to conditioning drills to specific business strategies.

Tactix METCON System

More info on the TACTIX metabolic conditioning (metcon) system:

TACTIX gives your students the benefit of metabolic conditioning. In select phases of a TACTIX workout, the focus is on metabolic conditioning. The benefits of metabolic conditioning are extensive because almost every aspect of strength and conditioning is greatly improved. This includes the following: increases in strength & cardiovascular endurance, overall power, speed, and metabolism.

TACTIX exercises are structured together in specific protocols designed to maximize the body's ability to store and then call upon energy from different energy pathways. For an overall fitness and self-defense benefit, we must move efficiently using energy from all energy pathways in as many varied situations as possible. MetCon is used to cover the widest range of metabolic enhancing exercises possible in the most effective and efficient way.

Frequently Asked Questions

Tactix Training

I'm a gym owner and want TACTIX in my facility, but I don't want to teach.

Great! We have a solution for you. You need to register for our TACTIX Gym Pak. You (the gym owner) will be given the entire program (TACTIX training + Inner Circle Coaching for 2 months). It will also come with 3 accounts for your staff to go through the training and take the online exam. You can be one of the three people who earns a certification if you like!

After registering for the TACTIX Gym Pak, you will provide our office with the names of the individuals who need training & certification. They will be granted access to complete their studies, take the exam and earn their TACTIX instructor certification. Your staff members will not be given access to the business training modules. If you later decide to have more of your staff members to go through the TACTIX instructor training and become certified, contact our office for special add-on bundles.

Does it matter where I live? Can I complete the program regardless of my time zone?

Students are accepted from around the world. Due to the advanced online learning system, you will complete your studies at your own pace at a time of the day that works best for you. Video training modules do not require you to watch or listen at any specific time.

Do students have to be barefoot, and what about the flooring needs?

You have the option to teach TACTIX in the barefoot format (or with shoes). As for the flooring/surface... You can use a mat, hardwood floor, or even on grass. If the surface is hard, you just need to modify a couple exercises. You are taught exactly how to do this.

Can I earn CECs/CEUs (continuing education) with TACTIX?

Yes, TACTIX is approved for 20 hours (2.0 CEUs) of continuing education units for the NESTA Personal Fitness Trainer Certification. It is also approved for 20 hours (2.0 CEUs)by ISSA (International Sports Science Association)

What does the certificate look like?

It is printed on high quality paper with the title of "Certified TACTIX Instructor". It has all the professional markings from TACTIX, and the official seal.

How much will it cost to start a TACTIX business?

If you have an existing fitness or martial arts business, the costs may be zero to get started. It's just a matter of redesigning and changing your offerings. If you want or need our special TACTIX pads, look at our online TACTIX store for branded pads. The pads are inexpensive and well made. If your students want TACTIX gloves, they will order them. You do not have to supply gloves. You will be given specifics about the TACTIX business models in your training.

If I choose the 3 payment plan, can I take my exam within the first 30 days?

No. You cannot take your exam until all payments have been made. You can still continue with you business plans, etc while waiting to take the exam. If you are in a hurry, we suggest the single payment plan.

Where do I get TACTIX gear?

We have a special arrangement with Century Martial Arts to supply you with gear at the lowest possible price. The pad and gloves in our online store are the same type as you see in your training videos. Although you are not required to purchase these products, they do help with the consistency of the brand, and are very low in cost. The design of the pad is specific to the types of conditioning drills used in the program. If you like, you can order the gloves wholesale and sell them for a retail price.

Success Stories

Tactix Facebook Testimonials Tactix Facebook Testimonials

I can't say enough about the positive influence TACTIX has had with members and non-members alike! We actually had a participant burn 1,100 calories during the class according to his heart rate monitor, and an additional 200 within the 45 minutes afterward!! That's just crazy!

Shane Arnott, LifeQuest Fitness Center

Hi! I just wanted to comment about TACTIX.

My mother suffered from Multiple Sclerosis for 14 years. She started TACTIX 4 months ago, and does it 3 times a week, (every class), at East West Karate. When my mom started TACTIX with Dave Bloemer, she couldn't run, do a push-up, or even a simple sit-up. She couldn't jump, or even balance on one foot without falling. SHE STARTED SLOWLY! Now, after the 4 months of TACTIX, she can do all the things I mentioned she couldn't do! It's really a miracle. If it wasn't for TACTIX, she would be laying in bed, and having a nanny take care of us like it used to be. Along with TACTIX, she has lost 130 pounds since last year, and has an incredibly healthy diet.

Hannah Kutner

I teach both Judo and Tai Chi and use the TACTIX method as a base for all the conditioning and stamina training, separating the class into two distinct 3/4 hour sections. I do still use the traditional exercises that I have always taught. However, I have found that by "branding" TACTIX, it has encouraged many people onto the mat that would otherwise never have taken part. Lots of the "mums and Dads" would never have wanted to get involved in the Judo "one on one" training but love the TACTIX to music!

Geoff Cawse

I just completed the TACTIX program last night. I have been a part of several fitness, combat and MMA programs over the years. I just wanted to say that I think TACTIX is top notch!! The instructor training progression is logical, well organized and easy to use for quick reference.
