Time-tested And Proven - Small Dojo Big Profits Is THE Martial Arts Business Manual For Instructors Who Want To Make A Great Living Teaching Quality Martial Arts

Looking For Reliable Information On How
To Start A Martial Art School?

Thorough, accurate, and realistic information on how to start and run a highly profitable martial art school is a rare find.

In fact, many of the people giving you martial arts business advice today have never even owned a studio. And, many others have never actually run a profitable studio.

Yet, Small Dojo Big Profits is different. As a career martial arts instructor, I wrote it from the perspective of experiencing failure, then finding the formula for long-term success in starting and running a highly profitable martial arts school.

And in this revised and updated edition, I’ve included additional knowledge gained over the last ten years of opening and growing two more successful studios in the midst of the economic recession.

I can assure you, it’s the the 100% honest truth about starting and running your own highly profitable martial art school.

Starting From Scratch, With No Prior
Experience? Not A Problem...

No prior business experience is required (although it is helpful, I assume that you are starting out just like I did, with no prior experience). All you need to do is follow the directions in the manual. And, using my methods you won't need a big commitment of time or money to get started.

Hundreds of martial arts school owners have relied on this information while starting their own schools, and thousands more have been completely satisfied with their purchase of my manual and materials.

Read on to find out why over the last ten years I've become the most trusted martial arts school start-up and “dojo rescue” expert in the industry…

Terry Ham

“Like A Close Friend…”

I was running a small dojo and barely getting by in addition to working a day job. Mike was working with me to help get things moving and then the worst thing happened that could.

We experienced a Hurricane in my town and while my Dojo made it through ok, my numbers didn’t. With Small Dojo Big Profits and Mike’s help, I not only grew my numbers back but was able within 6 months to leave my day job!

If you have the drive and desire to succeed but lack the knowledge, then Michael Massie is the friend for you. Why do I say friend and not consultant? Because Small Dojo Big Profits is like having Mike in your corner and by your side 24/7 like a close friend.

Today I run a full time dojo and have Michael Massie to thank. Thank you sir!

“I am proof that what you do works.”

When I opened my doors in 2007 I was competing with 12 other established schools. Here we are 6 years later and I am still in business while my competition has dwindled to 5.

I think it says a lot to not only survive, but grow my business, while many of my competitors were going out of business. I attribute that to many of the business principals you are constantly espousing in your work. I am continued proof that what you do works.

Mark O'Dell The Training Mat

 No hype. No bull. No changing what you teach. Just the facts on martial arts business success.

Stop trying to duplicate someone else's idea of success. It's time to determine your own definition of success, on your terms and with goals that align with your ethics and values.

  • Achieve success on your terms

    You can have financial success and also have a life outside of your school. Stop chasing the big school dream, and start chasing YOUR dreams. I’ll show you how.

  • Operate with honor and integrity

    Integrity. It’s how you sleep soundly at night. You can make a great living and still be a hero to the students in your school who matter most. It’s easy when you know how.

  • Do everything you do now, just with more money

    There’s no need to change everything you do. This system is based on universal business principles that work for ANY style. The only thing that will change is how you look at your business.

Customer Testimonial:

Arthur Mark

“I would highly recommend anyone read this who is wanting to start their own school.”

I bought Mr. Massie’s book a few years ago and continue to follow all of his posts regularly. Before reading Small Dojo Big Profits, owning my own dojo seemed very unrealistic. His book however made things very simple to follow. He touches on all aspects of starting up a school from A to Z in layman terms.

It feels like he is actually there with you holding your hand through the process. He doesn’t have you reading about complex business terms and procedures that will just turn you off.  He also touches on some of the pitfalls and scams to watch out for.  Once I opened my dojo, I can see clearer why he includes it. Everybody and their mother will try to call you to use their products and Billing companies.

I would highly recommend anyone read this who is wanting to start their own school. Also includes many great templates to follow and legal papers you can use. I hope this testimonial helps anyone make a clear and concise decision to purchase this extremely well written and valuable book.

Still Not Convinced?

If I still haven't convinced you by now, that means you probably have a few questions that I haven't answered yet. So, here's a brief FAQ based on questions I've received in the past. If you still have questions, feel free to contact us by clicking the support link at the bottom of the page. - M.M.

Q: "What format does the product come in?"

A: The digital version of the manual comes in .pdf, .mobi, and .epub formats - so, you can read it using a Kindle or Nook e-reader, or on any computer, smart phone, or tablet device that is equipped with Adobe Acrobat or another PDF reading software. All the resources are in PDF, MS Word, or MS Excel formats, and can be read using Adobe Acrobat, Microsoft Word and Excel, or Open Office. And, the companion audios and videos are in MP3 and MP4 formats, so you can view and listen to them on virtually any computer, tablet, or a portable MP3 or MP4 player.

Q: "How is it delivered?"

A: Except for the physical version of the book, the products are delivered via instant download immediately after you complete your purchase. The manual is a fairly small file, because the ebook doesn't take up a lot of hard drive space, so you'll have near immediate access to the manual. The audios are about 300 kb total, and the videos are about 750 kb total, so they'll take a bit longer to download. I suggest downloading them to your computer using high-speed internet access. And of course, the soft cover (physical version) of the book will ship directly from the publisher. Please note that, because the vendor for the digital version and the vendor for the physical version are two separate companies, you must order a physical copy of the book separately.

Q: "Do you offer a guarantee?"

A: I'm known for bending over backwards to make my customers happy, and I stand behind my products 100%. And although I typically don't offer a guarantee on my sales pages (because I think they've become cliché and don't mean much to the public anymore), if you have product issues that are unsolvable after your purchase you can request a refund for up to 60 days from the vendor. Just be advised that they do ban folks who repeatedly purchase and refund products from their system, which is why I suggest that you use our support system to resolve any issues before you request a refund. So, by all means contact us by using the support link at the bottom of this page before you request a refund from the vendor, and we'll be happy to help you find a solution to any issues that may come up after your purchase.
