Object Name: Third Ward businesses_Master Mungu Karate school
This karate school has been located in Third Ward for at least the past forty years. Its founder Percy Wilridge Mungu passed away last summer, but the school is still active. In the coming weeks I will try to acquire images of it’s interior, and find out who painted the sign.
Took karate here for many years. Damn near my entire elementary and middle school years. The place was full of Houston rap posters and artists would stop by from time to time too. R.I.P. Master Mungu. I’ll never forget how you made me laugh and taught me so much about peace, discipline, determination, and respect. A man that would rather pick up a roach and set it outside than kill it.
