Mr. Johnson started his Taekwondo journey when he was 8 years old. He purchased a karate book at the local book fair and told his mom that he wanted to do Karate. He has been a member of the American Taekwondo Association ever since.
He has been teaching martial arts for over 25 years and is currently a 5th Degree Black Belt in Taekwondo. He has trained in several other styles as well, including Sanow Jiu-Jitsu (black belt), Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (blue belt, one stripe), Judo, Kendo and Krav Maga. He has been a successful tournament competitor, including several times Iowa State Champion and a fourth-place finish at the ATA World Championships.
He went to college at Iowa State University in Ames and graduated with a degree in Business. He started Johnson’s ATA in 2001 and has been selected as a Regional Instructor of the year 5 times since then.
