Martial Arts Programs and Self Defense

KARATE: (For Children and Adults)

Okinawan Goju-Ryu Karate is the style of Hard and Soft martial arts, similar to the Yin and Yang concepts that balance each other for self-defense and total wellness. Martial arts training is not only about self defense, but discipline, confidence, and character development. We believe that children and adults need a strong MIND, BODY and SOUL.

Aiki Ju Jit Su/Judo and Grappling 

Aiki Ju Jit Su is the base foundation of Goju Ryu Karate. Applications include pressure points, takedowns, joint locks, and grappling (ground defense).


These seminars and programs are designed for anyone who is too busy to participate in a regular Karate program.

Our comprehensive self defense course includes:

  • Real-life combat scenarios
  • Defense against armed and unarmed attackers
  • This program is open to men and women 14 years and up. Our instruction is designed as real-world, street effective Self Defense designed to give you the chance to survive an assault and escape. Training can be intense both physically and mentally, and students need to understand that this training is “hands-on” in order to develop instinctual responses in the face of “adrenaline pumping” fear.


  • Lose weight and get in shape
  • Release stress and anxiety
  • Improve concentration
  • Increase energy level and stamina
  • Gain self-confidence
  • Maintain physical fitness
  • Healthy mental attitude
  • Increase flexibility and strength
  • Boost self-esteem


Houston Samurai Karate Dojo has been offering instruction and training in traditional Martial Arts and fitness for more than ten years. Martial arts have been proven to enhance people’s lives by improving their self-esteem, self-confidence and physical fitness while building character and imparting life-saving Self Defense skills.
