Hiromi Johnson

Gordon Emery and Chris Goodbar (tie)

Earlier this year, Hiromi Johnson told C-VILLE this: “For me, a teacher plays about a 99 percent role in learning. If you don’t have a good teacher, everything you do is a waste of time.” Readers know that to make the best use of your time as a martial arts student, you need to learn from Johnson. As for Gordon Emery and Chris Goodbar, who tied for second place, we know how you can settle this.
