Learn and train conveniently. While you maintain your current training regimen at your home studio, Academy training sessions are one night weekly at studios on the central coast. Along with an in-studio apprenticeship, you will receive a twice-monthly group workout and evaluation session.
Because we understand the teaching in studio operating are vastly different skills and solely being a martial artist, we are committed to operating as a professional trade school with an entirely different curriculum in the USSD studio. We enable passionate martial artists to learn the art of teaching the USSD Shaolin Kempo system, studio management, sales, marketing and promotion, and growth strategies.
Each of our experienced trainers has proven effectiveness in all areas of successful USSD studio operations. We strive to produce instructors more capable than ourselves.
Thanks to Professor Mattera’s vision, USSD has become the largest and most successful martial arts studio operation ever. Our professional instructors are the best trained and most respected in the industry.
The right career for you with flexible solutions for your schedule needs
