A program designed to empower women of all ages through the promotion of a martial arts lifestyle, which focuses on self-defense as a means to accomplish physical and mental fitness. United Women, as part of United Studios of Self Defense, exists as a means for women to support one another through our common interests as women, and as martial artists.
Athleticism is not a requirement. Our program has the flexibility to accommodate all ages and ability levels. Our curriculum begins with the psychology of empowerment, patterns of behavior for prevention, and finally, how to physically defend when all other options are exhausted.
Women learn the art of Shaolin Kempo, derived from the ancient self-defense system developed by the Shaolin Monks of China. Female instructors teach women the martial arts system in the way that women learn best, allowing for peak performance and competitive ability.
