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.
Lenny worked over a period of about six months with our 12-year old son, we'll call him "Frank," a hyper-articulate but irresponsible ADHD kid whose favorite physical activity is mousing with his right hand while snacking with his left, and who previously resolutely resisted all attempts to engage him in sports or exercise. Lenny realized that if he engaged Frank's brain, his body would follow. Lenny made the training sessions fun (in part, by patiently and attentively listening to Frank’s passions of the day) so that Frank looked forward to them, and even took some responsibility for being ready to start on time. The training focused on core strength and karate kata. Physically, we saw Frank's ability to move increase markedly over time, going from a slumping lumber to movements that approached grace. Mentally and emotionally, Frank developed a strong desire to live up to Lenny’s expectations and take responsibility for his own nutrition and physical activity. I don’t know how we will find someone else with Lenny’s patience, humor, and calm discipline to play a similar role in Frank’s life, but I believe Lenny’s work over the past six months has awakened in Frank a sense of self-discipline and responsibility that will continue to develop. Having tried ourselves to begin that awakening, we cannot be more appreciative of what Lenny has accomplished in this short time period. Our only regret is that we couldn’t find the time for Lenny to be our trainer too.
Sensei Redwood is amazing. He is patient, detailed and breaks my bad habits I learned from others. As a woman, I trust him to teach me. As a student, I'm honored to learn from such a great man. Domo Sensei!

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.
Northside Karate provides martial arts instruction which promotes discipline, respect, attitude, self assurance and most of all, honesty.

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.
