Our Method...

The Shaolin Kenpo system is effective for self-defense and is easy to understand for the beginner while still offering a depth of precise and technical material for more advanced martial artists.  Our group classes, supplemented with Specialized Training Sessions, allow for every student to personalize their program to best suit their goals. 

Specialized Training Sessions

At United Studios of Self Defense, every student receives a 30- minute Specialized Training Session (STS) each week. This Specialized Session provides the ultimate in personal training. This focused learning approach insures that students will get the attention they need to succeed. Each class is tailored to the students & their rank, which allows progress at a much faster rate. Giving each student the time to work on their troubled areas helps build the student's confidence. Our goalsis to team up students in these Specialized Training Sessions to maximize their training. It is beneficial to have a good workout partner so the students can help one another when it comes to more advanced principles and applications of techniques. Specialized Training Sessions are always scheduled at your convenience!


Group Classes

Whereas students learn new material, concepts, and drills in Specialized training Session, students are able to practice what they have learned in a Group Class.  Group Classes are 45 minutes of calisthenics, conditioning, sparring drills, self-defense application, and/or kata techniques.  Because classes are seperated via rank and age, martial artists of all ages and experince are able to join! In addition to our regular classes, we also offer Open Class; a fun, dynamic group class that allows students of any age and rank to join.  (Parents: This is a fun one to do when you want to work out in the same class as your kid!)
