When I think of Johnny Atkinson as a martial artist, I think of someone who was the real deal. A skillful master of technique, wisdom and a top competitor. And, I remember being so impresseed and influenced by his sincere and caring nature in teaching. When I think of Johnny as a person, I think of a really great guy, fun and full of life and a true Dodger fan. A real friend.

Johnny was highly regarded by his fellow martial artists and has had a major impact on my martial arts journey to this day. His teaching will be with me and help me to grow forever.
