  • Background of USSD Martial Arts of San Clemente

    ABOUT US Sensei Richard Cespedes and his experienced team of Instructors have been serving the city of San Clemente for over 16 years. In that time, they have been voted “Best Martial Arts School in Orange County” by the Orange County Register’s OC Magazine 9 times, and have won the USSD Grand Championship Tournament 10 times in a row. Students ranging in age from 3 to 70 have enjoyed the many benefits of training at USSD Martial Arts San Clemente, such as weight loss, discipline, self confidence, focus, stress relief, and an overall peace of mind that comes from knowing that you are able to protect yourself and your loved ones from harm. Let us show you how the Martial Arts can significantly improve the quality of your or your child’s life. USSD Martial Arts San Clemente offers Kempo as it’s main style which is a very balanced combination of traditional Japanese Karate, emphasizing basic principles such as self-control, self-discipline, respect, and self-esteem; and Chinese Kung-Fu which will later add more refined and accurate techniques to the already solid basics. Jiu-Jitsu is also incorporated into the Kempo training, using ground-fighting techniques to make the self-defense more practical and well-rounded. USSD Martial Arts San Clemente is open 6 days a week and offers flexible rates and training schedules, making it easy for you to train and progress through the ranks at your own pace. Group Instruction consists of students close to the same age and ability. The classes are one hour long and feature self-defense instruction, physical conditioning, various reaction drills, and training exercises designed to increase the skills necessary for effective self-defense. Private Instruction provides the ultimate in personal training. Each class is tailored exactly to your needs allowing you to progress approximately four times faster than students who rely on group instruction alone. Private lessons are scheduled one to three times per week at your convenience. In addition to Kempo, USSD Martial Arts San Clemente also offers Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) for teens and adults, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Boxing and is a licensed CrossFit affiliate.
