Local Author’s Book on Martial Artists a Bestseller

Martial Arts Family Fitness has announced that Master Melodee Meyer, the school’s co-owner, has released her book Black Belt Power – Inspirational Stories by Extraordinary Martial Artists.

A compilation of stories by martial artists from around the country, including some from Santa Barbara, the book became a No. 1 International Best Seller in its first week on Amazon.com.

Meyer will hold a local book-signing at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 16, at Area 51 Winery, 137 Anacapa St., Suite B, Santa Barbara.

"We are very excited to announce that Black Belt Power has been published and is now available on Amazon and in select bookstores across the country," said Meyer.

“The reader will enjoy hearing from such martial arts legends and champions as Cynthia Rothrock, Benny “The Jet” Urquidez and Bill “Superfoot” Wallace," said Meyer.

"They will also enjoy stories by small business owners, teachers, executives and others that attribute their success in life, as well as how they adapted to, and dealt with, failure by using the life skills they have learned through their training,” she said.
Black Belt Power is a collection of uplifting tales of transformation that exemplify the power of the human spirit. Each chapter sheds new light on the values required to live a life of passion, triumph and ultimate success.

“Our incredible contributors were eager to help on this project, and I owe them all a debt of gratitude,” said Meyer. "Each black belt in the book shares a story about their success, failures, and the lessons that they have learned in and out of the training hall.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
