I had the pleasure of editing Mr. Buzz Durkin’s debut book Success is Waiting, which details his experience and advice founding and successfully running Buzz Durkin’s Uechi Karate School. This was hands-down one of my favorite jobs– Mr. Durkin is such a kind, intelligent, and driven person and those qualities come through in his writing. So if you are a martial artist and you’re considering opening your own studio, I really think you should let Mr. Durkin be your guide. He has decades of martial arts practice and exprience and is highly respected in the martial arts community for good reason. People from all over the country seek him out for advice on how to build a strong and successful dojo and foster a community of learning, and that’s why he’s written this book which is now available on Amazon, already with sparkling reviews. Congrats, Mr. Durkin and William Leith who worked so hard on making this book great. It was wonderful working alongside you both.
