About Karate Atlanta Johns Creek in Alpharetta, GA

Mark Burns

Chief Instructor at Karate Atlanta Johns Creek in Alpharetta, 6th Degree Black Belt

Karate Atlanta Johns Creek strives to motivate the students to be their best. We have been in Johns Creek since 2010. Master Burns and his staff have been constantly dedicated to training and developing our students (young and old) to be the best leaders they can be for themselves and for others through martial arts.

Along the way, we have trained countless students who have gone on to win world, district, and state champion titles. We are a family oriented school with a focus on developing all of our students in every aspect.

As a part of the ATA (American Taekwondo Association), we teach Songahm Taekwondo - a fast paced style of self-defense based martial arts which focuses on personal development, powerful and impressive kicks, blocking, and smooth transitions from rank to rank.

Total beginners welcome! We love to work with beginners and elite athletes alike. No matter what your starting level is, you'll get an amazing workout, gain lean muscle, and learn techniques to keep you and your family safe. Children, beginners with no martial arts background, and people with martial arts experience all excel and learn in an environment that is friendly and fun.

Master Burns Bio

After more than 30 years practicing martial arts, Master Burns’ passion of the industry continues to evolve and grow. Being a certified ATA instructor for nearly 20 years has afforded him tremendous training opportunities in disciplines like Krav Maga and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. This has greatly influenced his teaching. But his foundation remains Songahm taekwondo, where his heart is.

Having been introduced to taekwondo a young age, Master Burns recognizes firsthand the confidence, discipline, and respect for self and others that martial arts can impart to a person of any age.

Master Burns has achieved several world titles, is currently ranked as a 6th degree black belt, and enjoys helping his students work toward their own goals both on and off the mat.

The aspects he enjoys most about teaching martial arts also include helping his young and adult students find their confidence, creating a safe and positive environment for families to grow together, and being active in his community.
