Owner & Chief Instructor John Miller - started studying karate at the age of 7 under Fisher-Sensei, Rodney Fisher, at Fisher's Karate Institute. Two and a half years later in 1983, at the age of 10 and half, Miller-Sensei tested and passed his 1st Dan (black belt) test. As of June 1983, Miller-Sensei, was the youngest person in the world to ever achieve a black belt in the Japan Karate Association through this legendary association. Miller-Sensei tested for his black belt in New Orleans, LA in May of 1983 in front of Chief instructors Master Masatoshi Nakayama 10th Dan and Master Takayuki Mikami 9th Dan. Master Nakayama was a student of Gichin Funakoshi, the creator and founder of Shotokan Karate-do and the Japan Karate Association.

Master Takayuki Mikami is the first person to graduate from the Japan Karate Association's instructor training program instituted by Gichin Funakoshi and Masatoshi Nakayma, he is also the founder and Chief Instructor of the Louisiana Karate Association and All South Karate Federation. Master Mikami, at age 88, is still teaching at his school in New Orleans, where Miller-Sensei still periodically attends classes to continue his training under the internationally recognized Shotokan Master.

In 2017 Miller-Sensei started on a spiritual quest to enlighten himself and become the best person he could be. In this new quest he found yoga and became a student of Yogini, Connie Raley. Miller-Sensei studied with Connie for the next three years and in October 2020 finished and became a certified yoga instructor through the Shanti School of Yoga under internationally recognized yogini, Nathalie Croix.

If your child wants to get better in the sport they love...
I recommend that you sign your child up.. worth the money and time..
I have two teenagers boys that wants to participate in many different sports.
But, they realized that their body needs to stretch..
Kids their ages don’t learn or don’t want to take the time to learn how to stretch their bodies right.. they just run on the field without stretching properly...
believe me, My oldest(17) thought that. Until he strained both hamstrings, knees and ankles.. He thought that his senior year of soccer was over. Until Steve Miller and John Miller got a hold of him. After training with John, my son was able to take his team to win a State championship, making 2 goals for Long Beach in soccer. The Bearcats won 3-1..
My youngest son(16) wants the training and direction from John ,too.
Call John, ask questions and sign up your kid.."
