  • "My children have been attending classes at United Studios of Self Defense Burlingame for many years. My son is now 9, he’s been here since he was 4 ½. He, in particular has really benefited. He’s more empowered and he’s improved his self-confidence. The community here is so amazing and of course he has a ton of fun. My youngest in now 6 and she’s been here for a year and she’s received those same benefits. We love it here"!.

  • "My son started at USSD in Burlingame when he was 10, and it has been great for him. He has learned a focus and discipline that has transformed him. He's been at it for a little over a year and in that time he has earned his purple belt. (It goes white, yellow, orange, purple and on).

    Greg is a great leader and his team of instructors and mentors are amazing. If you or your kids are inclined, you should check it out.My son started at USSD in Burlingame when he was 10, and it has been great for him. He has learned a focus and discipline that has transformed him"

  • My kids go to USSD Burlingame and it’s been great! We’ve been here for almost 2 years or more for both of them. They are benefiting because they get a great workout and exercise regularly, maybe up to 4 times a week if we can make it to all our lessons. But, more than that, they are really learning the power of practice, hard work, and discipline. They work their way up the belt ranks and they are so proud to go to tournaments and demonstrate their skills and then earn their belts as they go up. It’s been great all around and we’ve been very pleased.

  • "My son has been here for almost a year now and he’s learning a lot of things about respect and discipline. Just small things, like the teacher tells him to carry his bag when he comes to the class. I asked him the other day what’s the best thing you’ve learned here and he said “respect,” so just understanding what that means, working with the other kids, the energy that he gets, and the fact that 3 days a week he’s occupied with activities. He’s learning a lot of stuff here".

  • My daughter attends United Studios of Self Defense in Burlingame and she has benefited quite a bit from the program, in particular with respect, discipline, and definitely with self-control, just with emotions and things of that nature. But, the respect has been really great as well that she has learned.

  • I have two children that attend USSD here in Burlingame. We’ve been attending USSD for about 5 years and both of them enjoy karate. I’ve noticed that they are definitely team players, they compete individually, but they really see themselves as part of a team. They’re more disciplined, they have more patience, they have more structure, and they love the family and friends that they made here at USSD.

  • My teenage son took a wonderful self defense class from Greg. Greg couldn't have been nicer or more patient with the class of teenage boys. He taught them valuable skills to defend themselves in a variety of situations. Whether you're looking for group or private training, I highly recommend the programs at USSD.
