Best book on running martial arts schools, period.

One of the best books on running a martial arts school ever written, and I have read a lot of them. It takes the theoretical knowledge of many different business books available and places them all in the practical setting of a martial arts school. Absolutely wonderful!

Well written and packed full of tremendously valuable knowledge that can be implemented right now, regardless of your status in the martial arts teaching field. I have listened to this book five times since purchasing it and each time, I take away something new I can implement in my business. The sections on the structure of your business and the different programs that can extend your business is very valuable.

Chaz Allen does a great job of narrating the book as well! He is very pleasant to listen to even if you speed up the narration to 3 times normal.

If you are only going to buy one book on running a martial arts this one!
