A newly renovated United Studios of Self Defense Karate dojo opened its doors recently to residents of Beverly Hills and others.
Whether you are a beginner or an experienced martial artist, United Studios has a program that fits your needs. Men, women and children of all ages can participate in this Kempo style martial arts which is a combination of an art form, a sport and self-defense.
I attend private and group classes at this beautifully decorated studio. I enjoy this form of martial arts because I think it is more well-rounded compared to other styles of karate. There are five animals in this system – the Crane, Snake, Dragon, Tiger and Leopard. Students learn katas, pinans, kempos, defensive maneuvers, knife and club techniques, weapons such as the Chinese Swords, Bo Staffs, Nunchaku; sparring and mediation. A class (group or private) starts and begins with mediation.
Beginning students start off with a white belt and then get tested for a yellow, orange, purple, blue, blue stripe, green, green stripe, brown and then the ultimate Black Belt. I have a brown belt at this moment.
Martial Arts teaches both adults and children a better sense of balance, self- confidence, self- defense techniques and discipline.
Sensei Jason Assayag is the Chief Instructor and was voted 2011 Instructor of the Year. He meticulously helps students with their specific needs in the martial arts discipline.
