United Studios of Self Defense teaches Shaolin Kempo, a hybrid of Karate, Kung Fu, and Jiu Jitsu. What us unique from other programs is that we tailor our program to fit the needs of the individual student, instead of molding the student to fit the art. So whether your a beginner or experienced martial artist, whether you have physical limitations or are a professional athlete, or your just one of the many people looking for something fun, challenging, and rewarding, we have a program for you.
The United Studios of Self Defense system is highly effective because the wealth of material allows you, the student, to use whatever techniques work best for you. Since no two people or situations are alike, our Instructors try to prepare students for all self defense situations. Listed below are just some of the things we teach:
Shaolin Kempo Karate (or "SKK") is a martial art style that combines the Five Animals of Shaolin Kung Fu, the core competency of Kempo, the hard-hitting linear explosiveness of traditional Karate, as well as the power of Western boxing and the felling and grappling arts of Jujutsu, Chin Na, and Mongolian wrestling. This system was founded and developed by Fredrick J. Villari (a former black belt student of Nick Cerio and William Kwai Sun Chow), who devised a hybrid system which integrated the four ways of fighting: striking, kicking, felling, and grappling to eliminate the inherent weakness of martial arts systems that focus on just one or two of fighting techniques.
