As founder and Professor of United Studios of Self Defense, Inc., I would like to personally welcome you to the wonderful world of Martial Arts. Whatever your reason for taking lessons (to gain flexibility, reduce stress, develop discipline, gain confidence, learn eastern philosophy, self defense, meditation, as a hobby, physical fitness, improve your health, etc.) we encourage you to persevere in meeting your personal goals and needs. You have made the right decision.
The first United Studios of Self Defense location was opened on the East Coast in 1968. Since then we have grown to expand our studio locations in both the United States and Canada! We are truly North America’s Self Defense Leader and the only organization sanctioned directly by the Shaolin Temple in China to teach the Martial Arts in America.
The Martial Arts cannot be learned from a manual or DVD. Your instructor is the key to your progress in the Martial Arts. Without
them you cannot learn. There is an ancient Shaolin saying: “when the student is ready, the master will appear.”
We, at United Studios of Self Defense, are here to help you learn and grow. We look forward to your progression in the Martial Arts and the new found confidence you will have to handle any perils of life you may be challenged with.
