BENEFITS FOR KIDS
Our students develop a range of skills that enable them to succeed in all areas of life. This is particularly important for children, who need the guidance and support of parents and others to develop the skills they need to become capable and balanced adults.
We will help your child become a strong and productive member of society armed with character, strong self-discipline and a healthy self-image. At United Studios of Self Defense, we work hard to make your child’s experience with the Martial Arts a safe and productive one.
In the USSD Martial Arts program, children will improve:
Strength & Endurance
Respect for themselves & others
All of this is achieved in an environment where the camaraderie created by shared challenges creates a sense of trust and recognition of individual achievement. Students advance at their own pace, without the pressure that is often such a part of team sports.
The practice of Martial Arts, when done properly and under the guidance of a professional USSD Instructor, is safer than most school sports. It is a workout routine that improves focus and self-discipline, developing the mind as well as the body. Students learn to control themselves and to respect others, which naturally leads to a respect for self. This benefit often carries over into school, helping to not only improve behavior, but academic performance. Students learn how to use their energy in a positive manner and not to be aggressive towards others. Experts agree that, rather than promoting violence, Martial Arts open the door to building a solid foundation of self-confidence and a healthy sense of self-worth. The core philosophy of USSD Martial Arts training is non-violence. Our training enables students to respond in a calm and controlled way that will stop, rather than escalate violence, should violence be unavoidable.
ADULTS & TEENS
For the teen or adult student, the martial arts provides a balanced improvement of both mind and body. The USSD Teen & Adult Program is designed to provide you with the principles of self-defense while strengthening your stamina & physical ability.
