KEMPO TRAINING PROGRAM (Children and Adults)

The Shaolin Kenpo system is effective for self defense and is easy to understand for the beginner but offers a depth of material for more advanced students. Our methods of instruction include:

Specialized Training Sessions:

At United Studios of Self Defense, every student receives a 30- minute Specialized Training Session (STS) each week. This Specialized Training 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 goal is 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!


In addition, students may attend unlimited weekly group lessons. Group sessions increase stamina and provide an excellent time to practice skills and techniques with students close to the same age and ability.

With a goal of successful practice and application in mind, each class consists of effective self defense training and drills, plus various exercise and stretching routines.


All techniques and material is contained in our Student Manual. Online assessment folders help students and aid parents in keeping track of a students progress.


United Studios of Self Defense has over one-hundred schools in the US. Students who relocate may often find another United Studios location to continue their training.
