Chief Editor, Tony Hackerott.
Tony Hackerott has been the owner of The MMA Zone since it began as a traditional martial arts online store in 2007. The idea came to him while watching his son in Taekwondo class and talking about getting some sparring equipment. He went online and didn’t find exactly what he was looking for so instead of sitting back and compaining he took the matter into his own hands and created an online store that he would like to shop at. The MMA Zone which started out as a small Taekwondo uniform niche site grew into a powerful business within the Mixed Martial Arts industry. Hackerott has written and talked on every topic within MMA such as; Diet, Training, Lifestyle, and how to run a successful MMA gym. You can find his work on many other top MMA blogs as well. Hackerott has a B.A. in Psychology and a B.S. in Business and IT Technology from Fort Hays State University in Hays, Kansas.
My name is Jillian Bullock and I am a former reporter for the Wall Street Journal. I left the newspaper after I graduated from college with a degree in Communications. I moved on to film production when I got an internship on the set of Spike Lee’s movie Malcolm X. In 1995, I incorporated my film and sports entertainment company, Jaguar Productions in Philadelphia. As an award winning writer and filmmaker, I have worked on independent films as a director, producer, fight choreographer and fitness fight coach
I am also a martial artist and boxer. As a former competitive fighter, I hold a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and Wing Chun. Now I train in MMA. I am also a certified personal trainer and certified kickboxing instructor. I recently started writing about MMA because I love the sport and as a writer and a MMA student I couldn’t think of anything better I’d love to write about, well other than movies.
