Owner Raymond Johnson’s involvement with martial arts began 14 years ago. He has been teaching for 10 years. He is a fourth degree black belt and has a purple belt in Jiu-Jitsu.

Martial arts helped develop his confidence and self discipline as well as greatly improved his focus and concentration. This helped him throughout his middle and high school years and as he studied engineering in college.

His love of teaching martial arts led him to open his own studio in Greencastle. 

As a member of the Premier Martial Arts franchise; Johnson and his team are also involved with the non-profit organization, Premier KIDZ Foundation. Through this foundation, they help with fundraisers and events as a way to give back to their community.
