Rules and Principles

At United Studios of Self Defense, we strive to improve the quality of life for ourselves as well as our students and their families.  The Martial arts is more than just Karate kicking and punching, MMA fighting, grappling and jujitsu, high-flying kicks and tournaments of Taekwondo, and the wrestling, throws and take downs of something like Judo.  It’s more than just exercise or even self-defense.  For thousands of years, the martial arts has lasted the test of time because it’s a way of life… a way of life that is built on key principles that can shape us into the best version of ourselves.

It’s about you becoming the you you were meant to be!

Come experience for yourself, why USSD Temecula is the perfect place to improve your quality of life.  Train FREE for TWO WEEKS!

The Five Principles

Effort: Learn to exert  both your physical and mental powers.  To put forth an exertion of strength or power, mentally or physically.
Etiquette: The conventional code of good manners and ethics that govern our behavior in society; this includes home, school, and work venues.
Sincerity: Honesty of mind and intention.  Always tell the truth and say and do exactly
what you said you would do.
Self-Control: Control over one’s impulses, weaknesses and emotions; this will help you focus on the task on hand.  To finish what you begin is a top priority.
Character: The total sum of characters making up an individual.  Strive to be a person of sound and excellent moral character.  Work at trying to be the type of person you really want to be.

We believe these principles are the building blocks that create outstanding members of society and help our students reach their maximum potential.  We also maintain a positive and respectful environment by enforcing the Code of Conduct below for all our students and instructors.
