Josh Johnson

Josh started his martial arts training at age 4 years old. He first studied Tae Kwon Do and Hapkido. As a teen he studied Shaolin's long fist, a Chinese martial art and then began wrestling when he entered high school. Since then, Joshua has served as an assistant wrestling coach for his high school, Plainfield South and continued to train in a wide variety of martial arts including freestyle and Greco-Roman Wrestling, Japanese Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai and Western Boxing.

Although he is still a devoted student of the martial arts, Joshua combines many aspects of the his traditional martial arts training into his youth fitness classes and POW!’s birthday party curriculum. Joshua brings an athletic energy to POW! Kids. It is clearly seen when you watch him teach his favorite baseball and football drills during the POW!’s Fit Kid Camps and birthday party programs.

Besides his love of sports and martial arts, Joshua has a passion for music. He plays the cello, french horn, bass and guitar. Joshua combines teaching techniques from both the music and athletic community. Josh’s youthful and playful personality makes him a great addition to the POW! Kids staff. Although he is finishing his economics degree, you will see Josh behind POW!’s reception desk, teaching our kid’s martial arts classes, leading birthday parties and hosting many of our kid’s events.
