Born and bred in Belton, SC, Marty Knight is a two-time world champion and three-time national champion with numerous other titles under his black belt, but he didn’t begin his athletic career in karate. Having run track and field in high school, Marty was set to run on scholarship for Anderson College. The summer prior to his freshman year, he became interested in karate after seeing the 1971 film Billy Jack. He soon began attending a local Dojo for fitness and knew right away that he wanted to be a fighter and a teacher.
