You don't have to be great to start, you have to Start to be Great

By Greg Shraiman

In an ever-changing world, many people have come to count on martial arts to fulfill their emotional, mental and physical needs.

At United Studios of Self Defense Burlingame, our goal is to build a program around you, the student. To help meet a students individual needs and to challenge a student's mind and body. One of the unique aspects of our martial arts program is that all United Studios of Self Defense locations offer group and private instruction as part of one package.

Private lessons are geared towards teaching the hundreds of concepts needed to advance in the art, while the group sessions are geared toward practicing those concepts with like-minded individuals.

In a private session, we focus on individual needs and concerns. We help students build self confidence, we work on addressing areas that need improvement, and we strive to help students reach their individual goals.

In group classes, the goal is to work on the material learned in the private sessions. Students also develop their bodies in a number of ways from specific martial arts exercises to basic calisthenics. Students work at their level with the goal of improving their strength and stamina over time.

During the holidays, we have a number of Holiday Specials for people of all ages, ranks and abilities. If you're looking to improve your overall health and well-being, we have a program for you! Feel free to stop by, e-mail or call us at your convenience.

For more information you can find us on the web at We are also social under United Studios of Self Defense Burlingame on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. We look forward to training with you and Happy Holidays from United Studios of Self Defense!
