ABOUT THE OWNERS
DUSTIN AND BETHANY KOPPEL
Dustin has been involved in martial arts since 2007, and teaching martial arts and self defense since 2008. He began with Krav Maga and Muay Thai Kickboxing. Two years later he got involved with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and hasn't stopped training since.
While he enjoys competing, his true passion is teaching and watching people grow into leaders. He has always been active in helping his community and wanted to share those values with his students, as they become leaders in their community. When he is not at NMA teaching he enjoys spending time with his wife, Bethany, finding new adventures, and playing disc golf.
Bethany and Dustin met in 2013 and married in 2014, along with marriage to Dustin came a martial arts studio. Something that Bethany had never been involved in. While she doesn't participate in classes due to health issues, she does add special touches to NMA such as decorating, contributes to ideas, and most of all does the social media.
Together they work hard to make sure your experience at NMA is the best it can be. Thank you for choosing NMA Oak Ridge, a family owned small business.
