About Mike Massie
Mr. Massie is the author of Small Dojo Big Profits (2003) and over a dozen additional martial arts business manuals and courses. He pioneered the small dojo movement in the martial arts industry, at a time when the mainstream was focused on "the big school dream."
Mike started his first dojo at age 15 by partnering with his taekwondo instructor. He has since started and run two full-time dojos and three part-time studios, all of them profitable within a few months of opening.
Mike has personally coached dozens of martial arts instructors of all styles through the process of starting and running a successful and profitable martial arts studio. Additionally, he has coached hundreds more online through his group coaching programs and courses, and influenced thousands more through his books and other low-cost resources for instructors.
Mr. Massie lives in the Hill Country near Austin, Texas, with his loving wife of over twenty years and his son, of whom he is exceptionally proud.
