Formerly Johnsons Karate

Martial Arts For Life Family Karate was formerly known in the North of the UK as Master Johnson's Karate. In January 2012 we formally renamed.

Despite the name change and administrative changes, Martial Arts For Life remains the sole representative of Master Johnson's Karate in the North Of England. Master Johnson remains a close friend and instructor for Master McKenna. Master Johnson will also be teaching special seminars throughout the year in Harrogate as usual!
