To insure top quality instruction, all Instructors must graduate from the United Studios Instructors Academy. The Academy is taught by Senior Instructors that have been training in martial arts and managing studios for over ten years. Our Instructors must constantly refine their teaching and organizational skills to make your Martial Arts training experience exciting and enjoyable. Upon completion of this unique training course, we certify them to teach the United Studios of Self Defense System. Fully qualified, they are prepared to help you with all aspects of your Martial Arts’ Training.

Instructors participate in weekly training sessions taught by Master Instructors as well as 10th Degree Black Belt and United Studios founder Professor Charles Mattera.

We continually upgrade the teaching skills of all United Studios of Self Defense Black Belt Instructors. Our effective United Studios of Self Defense System will give you the upper hand in situations that can happen anytime, anywhere.
