AUTHOR SENSEI REESE RIGBY ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF HIS BOOK 1/18/13
NEW MEMOIR REVEALS MARTIAL ARTIST'S SUCCESS STORY
Dover, Del. - In his new memoir "They Call Me Sensei" (published by AuthorHouse), author and martial arts expert Reese Rigby takes readers through the major beats of his life, revealing the details of his success as a martial artist and business owner.
"They Call Me Sensei" is the story of Rigby's journey into Isshin-ryu Karate-do from beginner white belt to ninth-degree black belt grandmaster. Readers will follow him from his humble beginnings when his school had 14 students to his established success when his school grew to approximately three hundred karate students and an additional one hundred combined cardio kickboxing and tai chi students. By sharing his story with his students, family and others interested in martial arts, Rigby also pays tribute to his Isshin-ryu instructors, Grandmaster Angi Uezu and Grandmaster Tom Lewis, and his tai chi instructor Sifu Diane Cannon.
Rigby's life story is more than just a martial artist's success story; his memoir is an inspiring story to anyone with goals in life. "I think the book shows that if you have a dream, it can become a reality," he says. "From a young man wanting to learn martial arts to a 9th degree black belt is a story in itself! I show what it takes to achieve this."
His book can be purchased in hardcover, softcover,or ebook at Authorhouse.com, Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble.com
