Mr. Sampson performs in front of the head abbot of the Shaolin Temple for a reason. The chance to train with him has been transformative for me. And as a female business school professor and business owner, I can tell you that it has had a profound effect on my career. I have discovered that I can do much more than I ever dreamed I was capable of. And the extra spring in my step, and confident manner are helping me get ahead.

Pros: Superlative training, amazing instructors

Cons: Absolutely none

I wanted somewhere practical. This place is perfect for me as it has everything I was looking for: MMA, weapon related techniques and defenses, cross fit, targeted stretching, and a STRONG emphasis on working the good habits of self defense and fitness into your every day life. I dig it.

This is the best place to learn Shaolin Kempo Karate. The focus is on real life self defense, not just competition. The atmosphere is one of discipline but not so much that it loses it appeal. The instructors are excellent and amazing martial artists in their own right. I highly recommend this dojo.

I've been to different dojos over the years, and I have never found a dojo that has been as personalized, and as professional as USSD. I have been training under them for 13 years, and it keeps getting better as the years go on.

I trained in traditional karate in New York for 13 years and came here looking for a place and never saw anywhere where they have so many masters and grand masters...a true one isn't called such until about death or into their 70 or 80s.

I tell people when u go somewhere, find how you can trace the lineage back to Japan....

Something people don't know the 4 main Japanese arts of karate are shotokan, goju, shito, and wado ryu. Find one of those are you are almost guaranteed to get the real stuff from a very humble teacher. Also only white uniforms are worn in a traditional class, not black, red, blue, etc.

Happy hunting.
