United Studios of Self Defense has a balanced training curriculum designed to maximize a student’s progress in the Martial Arts.

Every student has a weekly lesson with their instructor in order to focus on students’ individual development.  Students can advance at their own speed and modify their training based on their goals, strengths, and limitations. Also, each student can choose a time of the week that works for their schedule.

All of our students are invited to participate in as many group classes as they wish. These classes focus on practical applications of the techniques and principles that students learn in their weekly lessons. They are also a time to improve your overall fitness and strength. And since all students train in a weekly lesson, the group classes run smoothly and are filled with lots of action and little down time.

Prior to participating in your first group class, we ask that you first participate in our Complimentary Evaluation Course.

United Studios of Self Defense is celebrating our 20th year in Santa Monica.

USSD of Santa Monica provides a safe and family-friendly studio environment that fosters self-confidence and individual growth in each or our students.
