Overview of Programs and Special Events

Training Programs:

Martial Arts

The martial arts style taught at United Studios of Self Defense is based on Shaolin Kempo. It has many traces of kung fu, karate, boxing, aikido, judo, and jiu-jitsu but is uniquely different from all of them. It utilizes a balance of both hands and feet, and is known for effective street self-defense techniques.

We offer programs for Adults, Teens, Kids and Preschool ages 3 and up. Every student receives individual and group instruction.

Martial Arts Weapons

Shaolin Kempo traces back to China and we teach traditional Chinese Broadsword forms (single and double sword), Kung Fu Sword Forms, Bo Staff, Sai, Spear, and Nunchucks. We also offer Eskrima stick and knife fighting techniques. Benefits include coordination, conditioning, respect and self-defense.
