2017 is the Year of the Fire Rooster! Fire Roosters are active, funny, and popular in crowds.

United Studios of Self Defense has been an integral part of the Belmont community since 1994. We are a family-oriented school which offers martial arts classes to Men, Women, and children.

United Studios of Self Defense originally started in New Jersey in 1968 by Professor Charles Mattera, 10th Degree Black Belt. It is due to the Professors knowledge and our constant training as Professional Instructors that we are able to pass on thousands of years of knowledge that is directly linked to the Shaolin Temple in China. The Kempo system is a mixture of Shaolin Kung-fu, karate, and jiu-jitsu. Every skill from punching to kicking to weapons is taught. We also have dozens of Shaolin forms that have been passed down to us from the Shaolin Temple.
