Gary Williams, the owner and operator of the Troy Black Belt Academy, began studying karate as a teenager and has over 40 years of martial arts training. In 1985, with help from his mother and sisters, he established his school and has been offering karate classes and producing some of the most outstanding martial artists in the area ever since.

Now married with two children of his own, Gary values the nurturing, family-friendly environment at the studio. Many of the instructors are former students and have been affiliated with the school for many years. They all have a passion for teaching students and enjoy finding new and exciting ways to pass on their knowledge of Williams Kenpo Karate.

Troy Black Belt Academy is unique in its versatility. We offer everything from highly advanced and intense martial arts to programs that cater to young children and beginners. Many martial arts schools have come and gone throughout the 37 years that the Troy Black Belt Academy has been in business, but the school continues to thrive due to the loyalty and support shown by its students.
