MARTIAL ARTS CLASSES IN anthem

In today’s society, everyone can and should have the skills to defend themselves. USSD’s process for teaching self-defense is founded upon a system of Martial Arts used by the Shaolin monks that is over two thousand years old.

The USSD system of self-defense is uniquely organized and you will learn:

  • More than 120 kicking techniques

  • Over 300 hand strikes

  • More than 100 pressure points

  • 30 different stances

  • 6 different blocking systems

  • 38 practice forms

  • 108 defenses against club attacks, knives, and guns

  • Practice drills to hone your defensive skills It is our goal to inspire strength, discipline, confidence and focus in our students, to help them discover their inner leader. I believe every child has the potential to be a leader, they just need someone to believe in them. As a parent myself, I understand the challenges of raising a confident and focused child in an age where there are more distractions than ever.

Anthem

MARTIAL ARTS IS NOT JUST KICKS AND PUNCHES!

We teach all of our members to focus on and be present in the moment. In this age of distractions and sensory overload, this is a skill which returns immediate results in all aspects of one's life. Here are some interesting facts about United Studios of Self Defense:

  • Our members are from all walks of life - we have students, attorneys, doctors, engineers, military and law enforcement all training in a fun, team-oriented family environment. 

  • We have kids that have been training for years that leave to top colleges and universities in the country, thanks in part to the discipline and focus on hard work they learned through martial arts. This is something we take a great amount of pride in.  

  • There are always new generations of individuals and families coming in to pursue the ongoing legacy. It is a tradition in martial arts to pass down the knowledge one receives in their training and many students become instructors, often ending up owning their own schools. 

And while the kids have their fun, our adult program is second to none. From traditional martial arts to more modern self-defense styles, there is something for everyone at United Studios of Self Defense. If you are looking to burn major calories, learn self-defense moves and get in the best shape of your life, you must come and check out our adult program.

Imagine yourself as a stronger, more confident individual in the best shape of your life. I want to personally invite you to take advantage of our introductory trial offer, and turn that vision into a reality.
It would be a privilege to meet you and your child to have them step into the wonderful world of martial arts.
