Our Founder
Read about our founder, Sensei Mark Johnson, and his story about how he began on his Martial Arts path.

We welcome all to come join us at our NEW dojo at 2416 Smithville Highway, McMinnville TN at the back of the building. Come out and see the beginner class learn kicks, punches, discipline and control, all under the watchful eye of Sensei Garrison, Sempai Matthews and Sempai Kelly.

We worship The Lord first and foremost, and we praise HIM in all things that we do.

God is Great!

We teach a style of martial art called Sho Gigei Karate.  Sho Gigei literally means many varied arts.  It is primarily a blend of Tae Kwon Do and Wado Karate. Sho Gigei Karate was created by Soke Mark Johnson and given life in February of 2007.  Sho Gigei Karate is an evergrowing and evolving martial art always willing to be added to for improvements.



1.  I will practice in the spirit of martial arts.

2.  I will develop self-discipline in order to bring out the best in myself and in others.

3.  I will use martial arts only to protect myself or others from harm.

4.  I will never be abusive or offensive towards others.
