Knoxville Martial Arts Academy (KMAA) is a very special place for me. It is my second family and my safe space. My journey really began the moment I walked into this truly special gym. Eric Turner created a place that is accepting of everyone where they are, but also a place that pushes everyone to be the best version of themselves possible. The coaches at KMAA, Eric Turner, Taylor Turner, and Joey Zonar (at the time) saw potential in me that I could not and pushed and supported me throughout my journey and own so much credit for my transformation. I would not be who I am today without them.


KMAA offers kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, MMA, children’s MMA, and personal training. If you would like more information about KMAA, CLICK HERE to visit their website.
