Adult Program

...and it's never too late! Our adult program focuses on the harmony of mind, body and spirit. Our goal is to help lose weight, increase flexibility and stamina, strengthen focus. Our students tell us that their training is a welcome and much needed departure from the stresses of their daily lives.
Our adults sign up with us for a few different reasons:

Physical Fitness

Martial Arts is one of the few programs that provides a Full Body Workout. Many of our adults that are consistent with going to the gym still come to our group classes with Optimistic Apprehension! Our focus is on stretching, strengthening and conditioning with additional attention on agility and coordination. With our personal training program, training intensity is tailored to each individuals needs.

Mental Development

Success in the martial arts requires a high degree of mental acuity. With meditation training and the focus drills that we teach, adults have found improvement in ability to concentrate, self-discipline, and self-confidence. Our training program is designed to push each student past their self-imposed boundaries, and show him/her that anything is possible if you put your mind & heart into it.

Stress Relief

Daily life is getting more and more stressful for everyone nowadays. Whether it's meeting ever-shortening deadlines, or managing your children's academic/activity calendar, many times the day just takes the life out of each and every one of us. Many of our adults attend class just to recharge. Our adults will attest to the fact that there is nothing like punching a bag for 30 seconds to melt all the stress away! Our training studio serves as a temporary reprieve from the trials & tribulations of every day life.

Self Defense

As our name indicates, we are focused on teaching the most complete & efficient self-defense system around. For the past 30 years, United Studios has adopted the self-defense techniques from many of the major fighting styles. We have combined all of the different combat principles to provide an all-encompassing self-defense system that teaches defense against empty handed attacks, grabs, and weapons as well as multiple assailants.

Family Bonding

Over 60% of our student body is made up of family members! We have father-daughter, mother-son, brother-sister, and every other combination! We have a saying, The Family that Kicks Together, Sticks Together! We have learned from our families that parents really enjoy doing the martial arts with their kids, because it is the one venue that allows the whole family to be on equal ground. The whole family gets to prepare for belt tests together as well as celebrate belt promotion together! It is a great thing to be a part of.

Achieve Black Belt

Many of our adults want a new challenge that's different, yet universally recognized. Many of our adults excelled in their adolescent years in academics, athletics, music, and/or art. After starting a family, many of their personal accomplishments took a backseat to family responsibilities. The goal of earning a black belt is something that many of our adults enjoy going after.

The great thing about the martial arts is that all of these benefits are inherent to our training program. Because our training program is focused around private lessons, adults are able to personalize training to their own specific goals.


More energy and greater productivity Lifting weights for hour after hour or jumping on the elliptical machine gets boring pretty fast. That's not the case with martial arts. Kenpo Karate is an ever-increasing series of challenges and goals (belts & ranks). It keeps things fresh. You learn new skills and techniques every week and you often do not even realize you are exercising!

Leadership - Through your martial arts training you learn even more leadership skills like how to speak in front of a group and communicate effectively, how to set a good example for others, how to mentor lower ranks and guide others to success. All of these skills are useful to your career, your profession and your life.

Focus and Discipline With all of the competition for our attention, demands on our time, cell phones and devices, one of the rarest and most valued character traits these days is focus. This is where martial arts training helps. It gives you a short break from digital demands, improving your powers of concentration. Karate teaches focus and concentration through rhythmic breathing and relaxation, step-by-step repetitive movements, personal attention, positive reinforcement, adherence to etiquette and rules (structure), group reinforcement and a sense of belonging. For these reasons, martial arts helps build focus and concentration much better than exercise alone.

Self Defense It can be a dangerous world out there, and this is especially true when the economy is struggling as it currently is. Martial arts helps improve your agility, balance, endurance, flexibility, and strength. You learn how to defend yourself physically as well as how to avoid physical confrontations in the first place.
