Team Warrior Concepts is Central Illinois’ premier fight school and training academy. We train in Mixed Martial Arts, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai Kickboxing, American Style Boxing, and Wrestling. We offer a wide variety of classes and our instructors accommodate all skill levels.
Our main school is located in Springfield, with affiliate schools in Peoria, Belleville, and Pontiac. We encourage a team building environment and have watched several of our students go on to successful careers in combat sports. We offer each student a safe and challenging training environment in which he or she can reach many goals. Whether your training is to become a competitive fighter or simply to get in shape like one, we can help.
Team Warrior Concepts was founded by Scot Ward, a mainstay in the combat sports community and a pioneer of studying and training in Mixed Martial Arts for more than 15 years.
Before full contact fighting venues had the popularity that they enjoy today, Scot and a dedicated group of enthusiasts sought out and trained with people who would later become legends in the MMA world. People like Pat Miletich, Jeremy Horn, and Mark and Matt Hughes just to name a few.
Today, Scot’s passion for the sport pours into his devotion to teaching, training, and promoting fighters. He is a dedicated coach and mentor who uses his talent and experience to achieve results and tap the potential in students that they themselves didn’t realize.
We encourage a welcoming environment and the instructor/coach Scot Ward closely monitors each student’s progress and manages his or her training regiment to suite.
