Overview of Services:
Martial Arts Training Program
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.
Martial Arts Weapons Training
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. Contact your instructor for details.Contact Instructor
