Holly Gomez

Holly Gomez worked at Century for a while before she began her martial arts training. One day, a couple of her friends who attended the classes invited her along, and, as she says, “the rest is history.”

“I started training with Master Dillard because I knew it would be the opportunity of a lifetime, and it certainly has been,” Gomez says. “I trained for three and a half years at Century before I received my black belt at the age of 58.”

In addition to her 1st degree black belt in taekwondo, Gomez is a certified level-one student in Jeet Kune Do weapons fighting through her training with Paul Webb. She also studies Chun Kuk Do and is a member of the United Fighting Arts Federation, founded by Chuck Norris.

“Martial arts training has changed my life, both personally and professionally,” she says. “Before, I would walk past tubs of belts and only think about whether there was enough material on order. Now when I pass the belts I think of all the boys, girls, men and women getting ready for their belt test who share the same emotions I experienced on my journey.”
