What We Do

About our Art

We teach Kempo, a traditional art that can be described as a mixture of Karate, Kung Fu, and JiuJitsu. Our program also includes elements familiar to other martial arts disciplines like Krav Maga, Kickboxing, Escrima, and American Boxing. This makes our Kempo system versatile so we can cater to the individual of any age size shape or fitness level. Kempo is also known for its effectiveness in close range self-defense, which is very common in real-life situations.

Personal training is supported by group classes, which means students learn faster and stay longer. Whether you’re a beginner or experienced martial artist, we have a program to fit your needs.

Our Mission

To provide a fun safe learning experience in our clean friendly studio environment where people of all ages and abilities can train practical martial arts, experience personal growth, and discover how the benefits of the martial arts can enhance the quality of their life.

Our Program is centered around you!

Benefits for All Age Groups

Strong people are the cornerstone of a strong society and nation. You or your child’s present and future success and happiness, is important to all United Studios’ Instructors. We place a special emphasis on the mental attributes of concentration, patience and self-control as we explore the physical principles of balance, timing and perfecting Martial Arts technique.

Benefits for Teens and Adults

A discipline, sport, art and way of life, the Martial Arts offers the adult student many unique benefits. You may be a professional looking for that added mental edge in business, or someone who just wants to feel stronger and be more energetic.

Studies have shown for years that adults who exercise have lower blood pressure, increased muscular strength, better flexibility and less body fat than those adults who do not exercise. They can also cope with high levels of stress and have a more confident self-image.

Benefits for Children

Believing in yourself starts early! At United Studios of Self Defense, we work hard to make your child’s first experience with the Martial Arts a safe and productive one. Young people must have personal goals and a caring support system to make their dreams a reality.

We will help your child become a strong and productive member of society armed with character, strong self-discipline and a healthy self-image. Equipped with these positive attributes, your child will have the inner strength needed to avoid the many temptations children face today.

USSD Sandy is the best! We have been training here for 2 years and absolutely love it. It’s great for all ages.

I could not write enough positives about my experience at the studio.  The instructors are professional and courteous, as well as being phenomenal teachers.  My son (8 years old) has been attending for almost a year and he is always excited to go to classes, private lessons, and the special events at the studio.  Thank you so much for all you do.
