A martial arts instructor's survival guide for the new economy.


Find out how to do it without taking out loans, without massive overhead, without hiring staff, and without risking your financial future on your new dojo!




With challenges like these, it's harder than ever to keep a dojo running and profitable.

But what if there was a better way? What if you could operate a six-figure dojo for a fraction of the overhead costs?

I did it, and you can too. Read on to find out more...


You may not know me yet, but I'm the author of Small Dojo Big Profits and over a dozen other martial arts business books, courses, and resources.

But just because I wrote the book on starting a martial art school, it doesn't make me immune to recessions. I ran full-time studios through two of the worst recessions in recent memory, and I continued to teach students four nights a week throughout the pandemic.

In this course, I'll tell you how I did it—and reveal how I rewrote the book on starting and running a six-figure martial art school.

In this course, you'll discover:

  • Why running a classic retail center dojo might not be the best choice in today's economy... and the top two alternatives to opening an expensive storefront studio!
  • How to profit six figures a year in the smallest dojo possible...
  • What I did to survive the pandemic, all while profiting more and teaching fewer classes...
  • How you can copy my methods and get your dojo started in the shortest time possible...
  • The secret to making a full-time income teaching just two dozen students....
  • How to transition from your current operation without losing your mind—or your students...
  • Why big school owners aren't profiting nearly as much as you think (this industry insider secret will blow your mind!)
  • How going smaller than you ever thought possible is the key to a lasting career teaching martial arts...
  • Where to open your "micro dojo" so you have the greatest chance of success...
  • Who your target market is (hint: they're not who you think!)
  • How to market your services so you'll always have a waiting list for your programs...
  • How to make your dojo pandemic-proof and recession-proof!

And much, much more...

"Mike Massie’s Micro Dojo program saved my school and my sanity. It gave me a recession proof model that kept me in the black and allowed me to provide great service and training to my clients through the pandemic, recovery, and into today’s crisis."

— J.B. Jaeger


Other coaches are charging $10,000.00 for this information (hand on the Bible, I know of a local instructor who paid that fee to another consultant). But you can have these secrets for just a fraction of that outrageous price.

I know what you're thinking: "If this info is so valuable, why is Mike selling it so cheap?"

Because I've been in your shoes, that's why. I know what it's like to struggle to start a dojo, to scrimp and save only to fall flat on your face and have to start all over again.

I know what it's like to suffer the ridicule of your friends and family, to hear "Why don't you just get a real job?" time and time again.

And I hate seeing martial arts instructors going through what I suffered. That's why I charge a fair yet affordable price for my books and courses.

I may never get rich teaching other martial artists what I know, but I sleep very well at night—and I get to see others succeed due to my coaching and their own hard work.

That's good enough for me, and it's why I hope you'll take a chance on this program. I worked very hard on it, and I went through lots of painful trial and error gaining this knowledge so you don't have to.
