Jonny was born to Sonia and Jake Strider, two former pirates living on Karate Island. When he was born, the doctor's informed them of their baby being full of energy as his legs and arms were moving a lot. It made Sonia happy to see her son so energetic. Jake was also proud that he was a father. As an infant, Jonny was often curious. When he could crawl, he would try to wonder off in the new house his parents had settled in. Before he wondered off too far, Sonia would pick him up and try to satisfy his curiosity.
As he grew into his childhood, he has always been interested in combat, like his father. Seeing his mother and father practice their technique amazed Jonny. He also saw a battle between his dad and one of his crew mates. This inspired him from a young age to become the best fighter in the world. When he reached the age of 6, he asked his parents to start training him as they said they will start his training when he was older. They agreed to train Jonny now, but only the basics such as stances and how to launch punches and kicks. This continued for months and he was advancing quickly in the basics of his training. Already he knew the stances and how to launch a punches and kicks.
Years have passed and Jonny was becoming more skilled in karate. His dream, courage, determination, and confidence helped as well. At the age of 10, a battle was arranged for Jonny to test what he has learned. The opponent was a random fighter, 5 years older than him. When the battle started, he was able to dodge and block some of the fighter's attacks. He still took hits, but brushed it off as he can endure a large amount of damage. He countered the fighter with what he has learned, landing punches, kicks, elbow strikes, and knee strikes. With a final spin kick, the fighter was down, no longer having the energy to rise once more. Jake and Sonia were proud of their son winning his first battle. After the match, Jonny and his parents were kind enough to help the teenaged fighter and his parents to a medic to recover. He complemented Jonny on his "sweet" moves, giving the boy a big smile.
As a toddler to his childhood, Jake has told Jonny of him and his mother being pirates and having many adventures along with their crew. This interested Jonny with him saying he wanted to be pirate too. His father said he could be a pirate and join a crew when he was older. Being a pirate was the start of his dream of becoming the strongest fighter. 6 years since his first battle, Jonny was now 16. Through these 6 years, he has advanced further into his Karate. He has even created 4 new techniques. Jonny wonders, when he eats a Devil Fruit, what powers he will have. His father told him about the Devil Fruits, that it gives you any possible power, but each one is unique. Jonny wants to get a Devil Fruit, no matter which type he ends up with.
Now that Jonny is 16, he asked his parents that he's ready to set sail and become a pirate. Sonia was a little worried for her son as well as Jake. He might have been a trained fighter, but there are still unknown dangers out in the world. Jake asked his son was he really ready to set sail and become a pirate. He gave a confident and resounding "Yes". He was very determined to become a pirate. Jake gave a smile and gave his son a hug, which he gladly returned. Sonia also joined in and it turned into a group hug. After that, Jonny went to his room and packed his stuff into a backpack. He then, exited his home and waved to his mother and father as they waved back with smiles of pride. This was the start of Jonny's journey.
