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.

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.

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!

Every instructor at United Studios of Self Defense is absolutely excellent! The are great with all the students; very understanding and caring. They focus on discipline, respect, and helping others. We (my daughter and I) love being apart of this dojo family. It’s an honor to be taught by Master Black. I highly, highly recommend them!!! Very Proud.
