Ms. Mallory Nagey
Ms. Mallory began taking Taekwondo in 2004 at the tender age of five. Like her father and older brother, she trained under Mr. Nickolas Zapton at Donelson TKD. Taekwondo was not a passion and it did not come easy for her.
She was awarded the Donelson TKD Female Competitor of the Year in 2008 at Donelson TKD’s annual Christmas Banquet and Year-end Awards Ceremony.
In June of 2012, after many set-backs she persevered to receive her 1st Degree Decide Black Belt, just a couple of weeks before her 13th birthday.
In August 2016, Mr. Zapton asked her to head up and teach a new Little Dragons program for 3 & 4 year old Pre-K students.
In August of 2017, Ms. Mallory enrolled in Tennessee College of Advanced Technologies (T-CAT) Nashville and is currently working on a degree in Early Childhood Development.
She has recently expressed interest in resuming her training and possibly working toward obtaining her Assistant Instructor’s Certification.
