Inspirational Martial Arts Stories Wanted for Book
ITBD International seeks "Standing Ovation" martial arts stories of people who
have pulled their life up by their black belt for an inspirational book on how martial artst improves lives.
Do you or your students have a story that will inspire, motivate, or captivate the reader? If your story will send shivers, raise hairs, and mist eyes, we want it.
All stories will be evaluated by a panel for inclusion. Authors and contributors will receive bylines and acknowledgments in the book. This is a great chance to pull some old stories from the file and give them new life to a large mainstream audience.
Please submit your stories of no more than 4,000 words to ITBDPub@aol.com.

I am going to copy this to the Budo Citizen and the Member Announcements for a little more exposure.
Good luck on this project. Considering some of the bad press the martial arts get, I love to see it when we get some positive exposure!Robert M. Carver

Jeff Burger's story is inspirational although he doesn't like to share it a lot...maybe if we ask him nicely..."...you have to know your ABC's to spell SMASH!"
