Master Johnson has over thirty years of teaching experience in the martial arts. He has trained in several branches of Go Ju Ryu as well as American Karate, Shotokan, Olympic style Tae Kwon Do, and Kickboxing. He has traveled and trained through out North America and Europe. 



Originally, a native of Ft. Worth TX. He began his training under "Shodai" Jay Trombley of United Go Ju Ryu karate style in 1980. Trombley was a direct student of Master Seikichi Toguchi. Sensei Johnson spent 15 years in tutorial training under Sodai Trombley to become a highly proficient, knowledgeable, and professional martial arts instructor. After winning various titles on the local, state and national level, Sensei chose not to pursue a career as a sport karate competitor. Instead, he has devoted himself to helping others help themselves, through the study of marital arts. 



During his enlistment in the United States Army he trained and competed throughout Europe. Shotokan, Muay Thai, Tae Kwon Do (USTU), and American Karate (Jhoon Rhee) were all studied during this period. Later in association with "Kyoshi" Dean Chapman and the TOGKF he realigned his Go Ju Ryu teachings to that of Shoreikan Go Ju and Kobudo (weapons).
