Standing on the Shoulders of Greatness This is Jesse Bowen; author of the AMAA WHO'S WHO in the Martial Arts. I want to share with you a new marketing platform that we have developed for our alumni that are featured in the AMAA WHO'S WHO in the Martial Arts.
Before we get into marketing, let's start by discussing the purpose of the AMAA WHO'S WHO in the Martial Arts book. The book is concise biographical information about our martial arts legends, pioneers, masters, and today's black belts. It is being referred to as today's martial arts history book, a positive tool for telling your story while sharing your martial arts journey.
Many great martial artists have lost the opportunity to share their life story. Your stories help bring to life the real-world value of the martial arts. Telling your martial arts story also plays a big role in helping us drive the focus on the benefits offered through martial arts training and encourages newcomers to become martial artists and connect to our world.
The American Martial Arts Alliance wants the world to know about yesterday's martial arts and the role it is playing today. By sharing your story through the AMAA WHO'S WHO in the Martial Arts autobiography publication, you are paving the way for the future martial artist.
Unlike many award martial arts organizations, our focus is on creating a value, not only for our organization but also for the people that are published in the AMAA WHO'S WHO in the Martial Arts.
This new platform provides just that: a way for your story to be told, not to just one person, but to the world, giving your students an opportunity to know your life story and your purpose. I want you to utilize this program to help you grow your martial arts business, enhance you as a public speaker, and become recognized as an expert in your community.
