I have been training with Ricky Jackson for over 10 years. I first started when I began training for the Golden Gloves. My goal was to win my age group in my weight division. Ricky had the unique background of being a former professional world class fighter and a body builder. His skills in both areas helped me accomplish my goal and I won the Houston championship. I have continued to train with Ricky and introduced my 2 daughters who now train with him also. They are both in outstanding shape and capable of being personal trainers themselves. One of my daughters became an ODP level soccer player who now plays Division 1 soccer. Whether you want to become an accomplished athlete or just attain your highest level of fitness Ricky has a program he can design and implement for you. I must warn you thought that Ricky is just as committed to your goals and will make sure you are advancing and progressing daily. He is a trainer for all levels of fitness and ages. More importantly he is an amazing person and I am proud to call him my best friend! Scott Bowers UBS Financial Services Inc. Senior Vice President
Raphael is an amazing and very knowledgable trainer. He is really well versed in his profession. I have taken my daughter to him for self defense classes before she heads of to college and I have seen her confidence grow, now I can rest assured that she is able to protect herself. Thank you Raphael!!!
I really enjoyed and learn from Uriel's Muay Thai classes. He has great communication skills and is passionate about teaching which makes him a superb instructor. His private classes are 100% recommendable.
Consumate professional and traditional stylist with experience in multiple disciplines. Great teacher with children and adults alike. Hire this man if you want the total martial arts package.
I am now 36 years old and have always been interested in Martial Arts. But I was looking for a system that would have REAL WORLD applicability, something that I could apply immediately. Haganah was the answer. The atmosphere is not intimidating and VERY constructive. It is full of real people who just want to protect themselves and their families. The owner and Head Instructor (John) is extremely knowledgeable in his craft yet very humble. He has a great way of delivering the material so that everyone understands. So if your think about training in Martial Arts or Self-defense or even physical fitness I would encourage you to call Haganah Houston and try it for yourself.
I joined Texas Coast Karate (at the time of this writing) about three months ago. I knew nothing of martial arts beyond what I had seen in movies. Master Boozer was incredibly welcoming, and he was quite excited to begin teaching me, an excitement I saw again with more students who have joined since I began. I started with the primary intention of getting myself in shape. I have a hard time exercising when I don't have something to keep my mind occupied and working at the same time, and Tang Soo Do has provided many challenges to accommodate that. In the short time I've been training, I've learned many simple but highly useful techniques, as well as history behind and practical uses for them in modern day self defense. What I also found was that all of the students at Texas Coast Karate exude the same welcoming quality of Master Boozer, making this an extremely friendly, almost family-like environment. Everyone is incredibly encouraging, and they are more than willing to let me learn at my own pace, answer questions I have, and congratulate me on a job well done. I highly recommend Texas Coast Karate to anyone who's interested in learning self defense, or anyone who, like me, just needs a group of friends to keep them on a consistent fitness program.
Frankie was my personal trainer at Elite Fitness. I was in his "boot camp" for 3 years; the longest I have ever been in formal exercise. He always expects your personal best without being overbearing or judgemental. Exceptional workout with a personal flare! Keep up the excellent job.
Mr. Emmanuel was great and made sure I had all of the necessary materials to get my license. He was also very patient and answered all of my questions. He has a wealth of knowledge.
We have 25 years' experience teaching credit course in martial arts at San Jacinto Central.
We offer instruction in Okinawa Gojuryu for children and adults. Although our style has roots that date back more than 400 years, our techniques are supported by western and eastern sciences, including proper body mechanics, intrinsic energy, sports medicine, and more. I have more than 35 years of martial arts experience, including black belts and extensive training in taekwondo, jujutsu, Filipino arnis, taiji, western boxing, as well as other Japanese and Okinawa karate.
We stand out primarily due to our rates. We work through christian organizations so we offer substantially lower rates than our competition. Also allowing families to train together offers the opportunity for them to grow in the martial arts together.

I teach private and small group lessons for children and adults in traditional Nisei Goju Ryu karate. (I am not a commercial or sport karate instructor.) I began training in 1977 with traditional martial artists and professional fighters and currently hold a master's degree with 21 years of teaching experience. I am a former United States Marine, and I have worked in loss prevention and private and federal security. I am also happy to mold private lessons geared to the expectations and/or specific needs of the individual student such as kickboxing and/or self-defense, especially for women. Everyone gets a free lesson to make an educated decision. No contracts, uniform/and or equipment purchase are necessary to train; you may get those items at your convenience. My students pay monthly to continue training.
