Johnson's TaeKwonDo & Leadership Academy A Life-Skills and Leadership Academy Dedicated to Excellence in Martial Arts You all probably know that Tejas conducted an SAT Clinic for students here at the academy over the past few months. He did this because of his understanding of what a black belt means and SHOULD mean in society. Let's face it. You probably know of people that do not represent the black belt in all of its forms in our communities. This is because other instruct
Jessica Stober's 5k and rainwater barrel auction was held this past weekend at the Wake Med Soccer Park. The event was a huge success. All of the rainwater barrels were auctioned off to some very lucky winning bidders. Jessica was challenged by Johnson's TaeKwonDo and Leadership Academy to take her martial arts skills out of the dojang and to put them to use in the world. Jessica exemplified this over the past weekend as she completely orchestrated the planning of the event o
The rain water barrels from Woods Charter School have returned, and they look great! The children who helped our student Jessica Stober on her martial arts service project-"Where Does The Rain Go?" have really blown us away with their commitment to artistic detail.
Woods Charter school is located in Chapel Hill, NC and teaches grades Kindergarten through High School. We are thrilled that they agreed to paint 3 barrels for our Martial Arts Project in Cary. Great Job guys!

I am very much involved in community service and other wildlife programs. I have always had a passion for saving nature, especially because it's unfortunate to watch our

How do you teach leadership to young students? At Johnson's TaeKwonDo Academy, we take a multi-pronged approach to achieve maximum results. First of all, we hold all of our students accountable-no matter what rank they are. Even white belts in our martial arts school in Cary have tasks that they are given to train new students.
