People walk through the doors of Aim and Focus Karate for many reasons. Some are looking for exercise and fitness, others seek a better ability to defend themselves and others simply say, “I’ve always wanted to study martial arts.” Whatever the reason, they are entering the world of martial arts and it will enrich their lives.
Aim and Focus Karate is dedicated to the study of a traditional martial art focusing on respect and discipline with a good amount of fun and excitement. It is a place to learn without intimidation, grow without limits and explore exactly what you're capable of doing with the right encouragement.

Our school belongs to a larger organization, the Tang Soo Do Mi Guk Kwan Association. Master Johnson feels it is important to be part of a strong, vibrant organization to enrich and enhance the material we teach in our school. The Tang Soo Do Mi Guk Kwan is the only large Tang Soo Do organization that features not only the traditional material of Korean martial arts but also the contemporary forms created by the founder of Tang Soo Do, Grandmaster Hwang Kee.
We strive to be a very active member of the community. We sponsor numerous events and programs in local schools. We are proud sponsors of numerous PTA events and other school fundraising activities. We recently conducted an “ALS Ice Bucket Challange” to help raise funds for ALS research.

"Tang Soo Do (“The way of the open/empty hand”) is a classic martial art which integrates the graceful movements of Northern Chinese martial arts with the sharper techniques of Japanese karate and the centuries-old Korean Soo Bahk (“hand strike”) and Tae Kyun (“foot style”). Unlike Tae Kwon Do which focuses heavily on kicking techniques and uses the hands defensively, Tang Soo Do places an emphasis on complete development of hand and foot techniques.”

"We train hard to condition our bodies, improve our flexibility and stamina, but it's the discipline, respect, self-esteem and self-confidence that truly enriches our lives.”
--- Master Ben Johnson, Aim & Focus Karate
