Our Missions

There are many different reasons for people to learn Martial Arts: to learn self defense, to keep physically fit, to learn philosophy, to reduce stress or to develop discipline.  For whatever reason you are looking, we want to make a difference in your life.  We will custom fit the Martial Arts to your needs and goals, and to recognize your personal characteristics.

Benefits for Children

Young people must have personal goals and a caring supporting system to make their dreams a reality.  At United Studios of Self Defense, we will make your child a strong, able and productive member of society, armed with character, strong self-discipline and a healthy self-image.

Benefits for Adults

The Martial Arts offers the adult student many unique benefits:

For a professional who is looking for that added mental edge in business, recent studies show that adults who exercise have lower blood pressure, increased muscular strength and better flexibility than those adults who do not exercise.  They can cope with high levels of stress and have a confident self-image.

For someone who wants to learn self defense skills, especially with the crimes of violence that have increased dramatically nationwide, training at United Studios of Self Defense will give you the confidence you need to take control of any situation.  Not only will you learn the physical principles of self-defense, but also the mental awareness you need to recognize and avoid problem situations.
