What We Teach:

The United Self-Defense System, most popularized as American Karate, is a mixture of:

  • Shotokan Karate
  • Japanese Karate
  • Shito Ryu
  • Tae Kwon Do
  • Hapkido
  • Kickboxing
  • JKD
  • Kung Fu
  • Boxing
  • Russian Sambo
  • Judo
  • Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
  • Ju-Jitsu
  • Aikido
  • Wrestling
  • Shoot Wrestling
  • Grappling
  • Arnis and Kali

There are no set movements that date back 200 years.  All moves are streamlined and fine tuned constantly.  If it works, we keep it.  If there is something better, we use it.  If we don’t know, we research it.  We believe we’re the best because we are still learning ourselves.

Through martial arts, we can help you achieve your goals.
