“I Literally Froze When I Heard The Footsteps Behind Me!”

“It was late, and I was returning from the library alone. My mind was on other things — and then I heard the footsteps, right behind me...and I froze! My heart stood still, and so did I! Fortunately, the footsteps turned out to be from another person who meant no harm. But I knew right then, with certainty, that if it had been an attacker, I was defenseless! And I was scared.”

“What Would You Do If Confronted By An Attacker — Or If You Found Yourself In a Situation That Might Lead To Bodily Harm?”

If you’re like most people, you wouldn’t know what to do. In our increasingly violent society, very few people can defend themselves. Assaults, robberies, date rape, carjacking all happen daily.  This level of violent behavior can frighten even the bravest of our citizens. Although we hopefully manage to remain physically safe, we can’t help but feel alarmed - because our peace of mind has already been violated.  We wonder if we will be the next innocent person to be victimized.

I am writing to you - as one citizen to another - with an important message:

What if I told you that a 100-pound woman — “armed” with a few, simple-to-learn techniques — could fend off a 200-pound bruiser, and probably scare him away.. or at least buy time for help?

Imagine the confidence and the peace of mind you would have if you knew:

  • What to do if suddenly grabbed from behind
  • How to escape when your wrists have been grabbed
  • Two simple skills that empower you to remain calm when facing danger


I'm Jon Penny, owner and founder of Black Belt Academy in Perrysburg.  I have been teaching martial arts to adults just like yourself for over 12 years. 

As a Black Belt martial artist, I’m sick and tired of reading stories in the paper, or seeing reports on the nightly news, about innocent victims being accosted by bullies and society’s lowlifes.

And I’m doing something about it!

“The Black Belt Academy's” programs are designed to teach simple-to-learn self-defense techniques that will work for the average person.  I can teach you how to throw an attacker off balance, and quickly disable him!

For example, you will learn:

  • How to Double Your Physical Power: You might be surprised to find out that a few “easy to learn” principles of body balance will enable you to execute a kicking and punching techniques with devastating power!

  • Martial Art Alertness: Your previously undiscovered “Intuition” skill - the built in self-defense mechanism that you already possess...but are probably not yet using!

  • Self-Defense Strategy: “High Risk” situations: What they are, and how to avoid them...also, one simple procedure that virtually assures that you will not be assaulted.

“After 5 years, one of the reasons I still love training here is all the great people.  The students are all very friendly and the instructors are very helpful.  It’s just a great atmosphere to develop your martial arts skills and to grow as a person."

Robin Swanson,


And the good news gets even better.  We will also show you the “3 Keys to Personal Safety” that will quickly transform you into the type of person that a thug would never even think of assaulting!


In fact, we will teach you to automatically and effortlessly maintain the type of body language that says,


“I am not a person to be taken advantage of.”



Fight To Be Fit


Increase your fitness level and strength, while you learn to defend yourself.  Our conditioning drills, designed by a team of top fitness experts and defensive tactics instructors known for building top fighters, complement the training by toning muscle and dramatically improving strength and stamina. They’re a fun, fast way to get leaner, stronger and dramatically improve your stamina.




“Joining the Black Belt Academy was one of the best decisions I've made; I look and feel better than I have in years."

Heather Hughes,


Improve your Self-Image, Self-Esteem, and Self-Confidence




You’ll be encouraged to take chances, to push yourself further than you ever thought possible. The success you experience through our program teaches you that you can be successful at anything if you truly believe you can.  That’s exactly how you’ll feel as you master the art of self-defense. You’ll feel safe, secure and healthy all at the same time.





I could not stand to be held down and would be frozen with panic.  Grappling has helped me work through this fear.  I can now relax, breathe, concentrate and defend myself when I am held down.  I have gained self-esteem, strength, and determination.  My flexibility is returning and my whole body is leaner than it was.  I am not where I want to be, but I am closer than I was.  I can do anything I set my mind to!"

Tammy Mikesell,



Just picture this…you are walking to your car late at night. You feel calm and in control.  You are aware of your surroundings.  You move with confidence and the authority that comes with knowing you can handle virtually any situation.  You are alert, and at ease.


Finally, you have the peace of mind you deserve!


Improve Your Health and Energy

Training at the Black Belt Academy will dramatically improve your cardiovascular health.  You’ll breathe better, sleep better, and even feel an increase in energy and effectiveness all day long.  You may even find you are more resistant t colds and flu.  Plus even when you do become sick, your recovery time will be better than ever.





“The training has enhanced my self-confidence and energy while helping me lose weight."

Katie Abernathey,



The sad truth is that many people don’t realize

just how easy it really is!


Most people think:

  • “It's too complicated...I couldn’t learn those techniques”

  • "I’m not very strong...I don’t know if I could ever defend myself”

How many times have you wondered if the current level of violence will actually worsen?  Will you find yourself “housebound”...afraid to pursue the many things that life has to offer?


“The training is exhilarating and the instructors are over the top!!"

Julie Serrato,


You may not realize it yet, but virtually anybody can learn these skills...and it’s a lot easier than you might think.  Now, you may be asking, “How can I know for sure that the 'Black Belt Academy's' programs will work for me?”


I’ve made it very easy for you to find out ....
