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.  

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.

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.

TESTIMONIALS

My son has been practicing martial arts with Master Black at United Studios of Self Defense for 7 years. In that time, my son has grown both in skills and in his self-confidence. Master Black and his instructors at USSD have been instrumental in my son’s development into a strong, disciplined, respectful young man. He has made great friends and has learning valuable lessons that will service him the rest of his life. I could not be happier with our experience at USSD and give Master Black and his instructors my highest recommendation.

Mike L.

For the past year, my two kids have been learning self-defense and self-control amid this wonderful atmosphere of mutual respect. The teachers are skillful martial artists as well as excellent role models. It's not our first experience at a dojo and I can't imagine that there is a better one anywhere. I simply couldn't be more satisfied with our experience at USSD Anthem.

Jonathan H.

My son started taking classes at USSD in May of 2022 and we couldn't be more pleased with the quality of the instructors and the Shaolin Kempo Karate training and technique. We feel so fortunate to have Soki Richard Black and his extraordinary staff training my son: 4th degree black belt Mrs. Victoria, 3rd degree black belt Mr. Matthew, black belt Mr. Conrad, 1st degree black belt Mr. Jack, and many other wonderful instructors. If you want to see if this is the right fit for you, they also offer a free private lesson to introduce you to the program. I rate this five out of five stars, and I would rate it a 10 if I could!
