Johnny R. Williamson Sr. is the founder and distinguished owner of Starworld Martial Arts Academy. He is also the proponent and creator of the nonprofit Anti- Bullying Strategies and Certification. He has been duly recognized by the Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for his dedication to the martial arts, his leadership, as well as his efforts to stop bullying.

Mr. Williamson has always been drawn to the world of martial arts even when he was still a child. This is even though his parents were not able to support him in his interest, for fear that it was too violent. Undeterred, he continued with his pursuit of the discipline in the martial arts. After one semester of college, Mr. Williamson left to join the military and serve his country.

He ended his stint from the service in 1996 by retiring with the distinguished rank of sergeant first class. While in the military, however, he studied Aikido, Chinese Boxing, and Tang Soo Do Karate. He achieved Black Belt status in 1986. As the owner and founder of the Starworld Martial Arts Academy, he specializes in self-defense tactics, personal discipline, confidence building, and the honing of leadership skills. He is also a member of the World Tang Soo Do Association earning the title of Board-Certified International Master Instructor.

While administering and running the business of his academy, Mr. Williamson is also a certified anti-bullying professional, he founded the non-profit Anti-Bullying Strategies and Certification Organization. Having to face bullies himself as a youngster, he realized that low self-esteem which is generally caused by bullying can influence a child’s growth and development. Ultimately, it may even affect his or her chances for success later in life. He believes that there is a correct way to handle bullying if only to prevent becoming a victim. With his anti-bullying program, it has become his mission to help young people to gain self-confidence and mentor them on how to stand up to bullies without having to resort to fighting.

Mr., Williamson then decided to enroll at the University of Phoenix where he earned degrees in Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Arts, and Master of Business Administration. He studied business administration management and human resources from 1992 to 1998. He did this while serving his country in the armed forces. Earning an MBA proved to be the advantage that he used as leverage to keep his business growing, even during the financial downturn, and the more recent coronavirus pandemic. He also mentor’s other business owners who want to learn from his combination of academic and years of personal experience in running his own martial arts and anti-bullying businesses.

Looking forward to the foreseeable future, Mr. Williamson will continue to teach and do consulting for others in the discovery of the discipline and the benefits of martial arts. Added to that, is the teaching of his anti-bullying strategies, as well as carrying out successful business operations.
