Melanie Gibson is the creator of the blog Little Black Belt. She began taekwondo training at age ten, took a twenty-two year hiatus, and began training again in her early thirties. She is a second degree taekwondo black belt, a third degree black belt candidate, and is a newly minted competitive board breaker.

Melanie has a bunch of college degrees, a corporate job that mostly lets her work in peace and quiet, and lives in Texas.

Stay tuned for my memoir Kicking and Screaming: a Memoir of Madness and Martial Arts coming to your bookseller in spring 2021!
