Mr. Page

Tony Page

Mr. Tony Page started his martial arts training when he was just 10 years old. His first style, Judo, was a grappling art, and he reached brown belt when he was 12 years old. He particularly enjoyed the stand-up part of Judo, which consisted of 40 different throws and takedowns.

Mr. Page took a few years off from martial arts while he was in college, where he earned a Bachelors Degree in Mechanical Engineering, and went to work in Spring City, Tennessee for the Tennessee Valley Authority as a start-up Engineer in one of their nuclear power plants. However, he could not stay away from the martial arts, and he began to study again on his own.

Ms. Kris

Ms. Kris started training at the Black Belt Academy in 2006 and earned her 1st Degree Black Belt in 2011. She is about as passionate as you can get about the benefits of martial arts training and how it can change your life.

Program director, instructor, office manager, bookkeeper, purchasing agent, cashier -- Ms. Kris pretty much handles anything that comes along, including mopping up after leaky pipes and plugged up toilets. You never know what's going to happen on any given day at the Black Belt Academy.
