He left a very successful career in engineering building satellites and rockets (he’s literally a rocket scientist) in 1995 because he wanted to spend his energies developing people. While engineering and developing technology is an important way to make a contribution to the world, the better way for him would be to help people directly, not through technology.

So he started his Martial Arts School…

Building this school and then the next one until he owned eight locations in Arizona and California along with getting a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology and a Ph.D. in Education made him realize that a solid foundation in marketing, sales, and business was what was usually lacking, not just in martial arts schools but in most businesses. 

Making an Impact

Greg Moody is focused on impacting people both individually and through their businesses. After he started his first martial arts school in 1995 through building 8 locations and training over 16,000+ students, he was always asked “how do you do it?”

During these many visits, calls, and conversations from martial arts school owners and other kinds of business owners, Greg was happy to share the systems and processes that allowed him to scale up and grow. After all he learned this by studying others and doing what he could to improve on this knowledge so he wanted to give back. Now he could have an impact not just as an instructor but on a much larger scale.

In addition to his school, KarateBuilt™ Martial Arts, he works with incredible organizations like Go2 Karate, Rev Marketing, Go2 Firearm Safety, and others to help businesses and people grow and impact the world.

Personal Life

Author Greg Moody

Greg was born in Arizona so he is a rare native of the state. He and his son are both fanatic about Arizona State University sports and he spends as much leisure time (when he takes some) traveling with his son all around the world. 

When asked what his main focus is he’d tell you…

“My mission in life has always been to make a big positive impact on people. I keep evolving how I am doing that – first as an instructor, then by getting my counseling degree and Ph.D. but all along, by helping business owners make big leaps.”

Book Author Greg Moody

As serial-entrepreneur and author of multiple books Dr. Moody offers his books in eBook and paperback at Amazon and on the Apple iBookstore.

Leadership Isn’t a Thing You Do, It’s Skills You Develop!

The Life Skills of Leaders” shows how leaders are not born, they are made out of specific skills that need to be developed. Any person can, therefore, improve their ability to be a leader by developing these six skills or improving the ones they are weak at. Adults and parents of children can use the “workbook” style to make significant progress in each area. The first book of its kind, first published in 2006, now in its 4th edition, “The Life Skills of Leaders” connects six pillars of leadership – vision, self-esteem, communication, respect, honesty and discipline together to build a foundation for future success for readers and students whether they are young or old because the principles of the pillars transcend age, culture, and education so everyone can learn to become a leader!

Stories Of The Black Belts: Volume I

Stories Of The Black Belts: Volume I

Lessons In Success, Excellence, Discipline, Leadership and Life!

Stories of the Black Belts is unfortunately only a partial story. It’s partial because I don’t have all of the thousands of Black Belts we have trained since 1995 in here and more importantly because it’s only a snapshot. It’s just one moment in time where each Black Belt – as a requirement to become a first degree (or second or third degree or higher) Black Belt needed to take a moment and write an essay about “What Karate Means To Me”. While many of these Black Belts are still training and I know their current story, in the last two and a half decades I would love to know what all of their “now” stories are. Actually I do know many of their successes but it’s hard to get the practicing lawyer or the M.D., or one of the entrepreneurs to stop for a minute and write an essay for our book…Nevertheless, in the pages here are, I feel, inspiring and motivating stories about students who started on the martial arts journey as young as 3 years old and some as old as 93. Most began so they could get stronger, gain discipline, build confidence or even learn to defend themselves – the primary reasons students enter the dojang. Yet you’ll see in their essays that they received much more than this. My hope is reading some of these stories will inspire you on your next journey with us in martial arts or to whatever great successes are next!

 Stories OfThe Black Belts: Volume 2

Stories Of The Black Belts: Volume 2

More Lessons In Success, Excellence, Discipline, Leadership and Life!

The UPCOMING Stories of the Black Belts Volume II is another chapter in the 1,000s of Black Belts that I have had the honor of working with over the last 3 decades. Like Volume I, we only have room for a select number of their stories, but in this book I have a few special stories… scattered in here among the essays are stories of Black Belt years after they received their 1st degree Black Belt. Some are still training and some are years past. I asked a select few to tell me what martial arts has meant to them in their careers and lives years later. So this is a different kind of snapshot than before. In the pages are more motivating, funny and valuable stories about students who began a journey in martial arts as late in life as 93 and as young as 3 years old. My hope is that this is another step on your journey to success!
